Should Christianity be Endured - or ENJOYED?

Church of God

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

HAVE you thought of religion as a life of gloom - a sort of living, painful, penance merely to be endured - a lot of "don'ts," and giving up of every pleasure that makes life worth living - with all the rewards to be collected in the hereafter? Jesus said: "I am come that they might have LIFE, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10). Let us profit by the words of George Romanes, a British psychologist of the last century: "Some men are not conscious of the cause of their misery.... For the most part they conceal the fact as well as possible from themselves by occupying their minds with society, sport, frivolity of all kinds, or if intellectually disposed, with science, literature, business.... This, however, is but to fill a starving belly with husks.... He may cheat himself for a time - especially if he be a strong man - into the belief that he is nourishing himself by denying his natural appetite; but he soon finds he was made for some altogether different kind of food."
