Acts 14:22  -  ...“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,”... - A lot of people seem to think that it will be smooth sailing after they become Christians, but that's not what the scriptures say. Some might even give up and say "why bother"? This is understandable, and I often feel the same way. But then I go back to remembering the Apostle Paul who wrote much of the new testament. After he became a Christian he traveled widely promoting Christianity and had big problems, many of which would dwarf ours, almost everywhere he  went. As we are told in 1 Peter 4:12 - Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you -. Even  Jesus had some troubles when his father sent him here to be our Savior.     https://whataboutjesus.com/

Yep, many false teachers out there expecting their "Best Life Now."
Bible believing Christians have had it easy here in America and the West.  The writing on the wall seems to tell us there are hard times ahead.

This is why I have never liked prosperity gospel teachers like Joel. God isn't an ATM that delivers secret wealth if you do this one weird trick. That's a side of Christianity that I believe is a false prophecy.

It's not even part of Christianity.  It's heresy.

Every book in the New Testament says we will suffer.  It is because of the hatred of the Gospel by the world. 

John 15:18-25 New International Version (NIV)
The World Hates the Disciples
18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’[a] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.
  

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

Australia's Rugby Union Players' Association (RUPA) will convene a 'faith review' to establish clearer guidelines for religious expression in the wake of Israel Folau's sacking.
Former Wallabies fullback Folau, a fundamentalist Christian, had his four-year contract terminated last week for a social media post that said hell awaits 'drunks, homosexuals, adulterers' and others.
Rugby Australia's hard-line stance angered conservative Christians in Australia and upset some of Folau's former Wallabies team mates, who share his Pacific islands heritage and religious beliefs.

They asked him to remove his remarks from his page and he refused.  As a result he was dismissed from his multi-million dollar contract by the league.  This man stood on his faith and lost his career.  How many of us would do this?

Based on my understanding of Jesus's definition of adulterer, there aren't many, if any, males that don't fit it, and probably not many females.

Based on the 10 Commandments we can safely assume everyone has broken God's law.  The law points us to the cross, only through Jesus can men be saved and by no other name.
