The dichotomy of Christianity . . .
St. Paul said,
“We are treated as deceivers and yet are truthful;
as unrecognized and yet acknowledged;
as dying and behold we live;
as chastised and yet not put to death;
as sorrowful yet always rejoicing;
as poor yet enriching many;
as having nothing and yet possessing all things.”
2 Cor 6:1-10
Go therefore, brothers and sisters in Christ!
Do without counting the cost.
Love without expecting the same in return.
And let the suffering lie.
For as we suffer, so will we be rewarded in action, and in love, and in joy – a hundred-fold over. And praise be to God for sending us Jesus!
