    Of course it is to hard. Doing what God wants and asks of me is always hard when I wanna do what I want.

    It is hard following the Lord, but when we fall down, there is a remedy for it; confession.

    It would be more than a bit sad if it weren't too hard.

    To arbitrary, though, is a harder case to answer.

    One would hope that God's desires for humanity set a high standard but not an arbitrary one.

    I'd like to discuss this further ebia. This has crossed my mind a lot lately. I have to run to the store but I'll check back in when I get back. Sometime I feel that parts of Catholicism is arbitrary to the point one must do something instead of wanting to do something. I feel like some things put a damper on actual growth because of the obligation. Anyway, I'll check in later. :wave:

    :D

    O Michie - we have to be honest with ourselves. We dont want to do any of it. Lets admit it. :D I did. :p

    The thing is - as long as we are fallen - which is our whole life - doing the perfect thing [following God's perfect laws] seem difficult.
    Now in a perfect world [we no longer have] it would just be natural. But now its a struggle because concupiscence makes life really hard.

    Then we have the 'demons' trying every possible way to pull us from His Church.

    Yet if we see it for what it is - it helps us conquer the obstacles we ought to know - will come.

    This is one subject that a book could be written on. :)

    Oh I admitted it.

    I'm used to being more organic in my spirituality & devotions. I'm having serious adjustment issues. :p By now, I should be adjusted.

    Heads up - it depends on what ails ya.
    There are Saints that had doubts and struggles all the way thru.
    So - for some - this must be [getting thru it] their merit in perseverance.

    But - let's talk. :)
