Coffee with a Friend

“It’s too easy to become a Christian . . . so it can’t be true!”  This was Alex’s response to the Gospel when he and Brett met for coffee last week.  “So you don’t have to do anything, just believe in what Jesus has already done?  I think this was made up because it’s what people want to hear; it’s the easy way.”  Alex continued, “The teachings of Buddhism are much more difficult; it’s so deep that no one can understand everything.  Christianity can be explained in only a few minutes so it can’t be right!”
