Listen to Erathoniel ranting on and on in good ol' conservative Christian fashion.

Okay, so I'm writing again. It's been a little while since I've written a theology piece, but I've been playing some Dwarf Fortress (which means I get a lot of idle brainpower time), so I've prepared an article on "Feelgood Faith"

Imagine that there is a town named Feelgood. In this town people only do things when they want to. It's in a decent climate, and people don't complain that much. However, they find that there is a dearth of exciting new innovations coming out of their town, perhaps spurred on by the fact that their library system, stores, and places of learning only get new materials at a tenth the rate of other places. So they have to make due with what they get, but nobody really cares, because they don't have to.

See the folly?

If we only practice religion when we feel like it, we fall victim to traps. I've done it. We've all done it. We can't expect anything extraordinary to come our way when we won't work for it. God loves us, but do we love Him? Even if we get the gifts of His love, do we deserve them? Can we honestly take them?

Only if we push ourselves can we truly experience all that God has in store for us.
