    Oh well. I was hoping to move the conversation back to the OP.

    Maybe the faith is too burdensome!

    Move on!

    As I stated earlier, His yolk is easy and His burden light. I'm LOVING the faith, and don't find it burdensome at all.

    YOU, on the other hand....

    We all have a map of sorts, a map by which we navigate the myriad of choices we make through life. What should the map of life be for the Christian, and how is such a map prepared? Many claim the map of life is the Bible, but does that provide a guarantee of a sure course?
    I said it was probably okay for Christians to influence the political world in positive ways. However, the typical Christian is not required by scriptures to do this as their act of faith. In Rom 13, Paul told the Roman believers to pay the taxes required of them.

    So you really don't recognize any duty or obligation to address social evls of:

    Personal sins of those who cause, support or exploit evil

    Those who are in a position to avoid or limit and fail to do so out of
    sloth
    Fear
    Conspiracy of silence
    Complicity
    indifference

    Those who avoid it because they see it as difficult or futile

    Those who produce specious arguments to avoid effort or sacrifice required.

    Maybe you are right, and cheap grace is all we need.
