Luke 16:19-31 Being a Christian is hard. Rich people run for political office. Pampered athletes complain about their working conditions. Self-important celebrities get all the attention. All this while we slave away day after day. In a world of religious toleration, it seems the only faith that can’t be tolerated is the Christian faith.

In the few places where Christianity still has a foothold, it’s losing its influence as people water down the Bible’s teachings.
