We have traded in a great spiritual lifelong adventure with Jesus for religious chores that we can check off our list. The deeper questions that deal with the mystery of following Jesus — the parables that leave us puzzled, the art of being in Christ in a world of doing things for Christ, the dilemmas of pain and suffering — these questions get thrown out because we are too busy checking off our boxes, proving we are Christians. In throwing out the deeper questions we trade in the deeper desires for the cheaper ones.
