I am a Christian because Christianity is true. I didn’t become a believer to solve a problem, to make a better life, or guarantee a place in heaven. I’m not a Christian because it “works” for me. I still struggle to submit my prideful will to what God calls me to do. Christianity is not easy. There are times when I think it would be easier to do it the old way; easier to cut a corner or take a short cut. There are many times when doing the right thing means doing the most difficult thing possible. I became a Christian because the historical record in the New Testament is reliable, and I eventually knew I had to make a decision about Jesus. —J Warner Wallace (from, Four Distinct Advantages of a Theistic Worldview)
