"For to such belongs the kingdom of heaven. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child, shall not enter it".
I was thinking today about how people preaching the Gospel can hinder people from believing and receiving salvation in Jesus Christ. I remembered how I've heard the ridiculous hatred against an easy salvation? Some people want to make out that being saved isn't easy. If salvation wasn't easy, then why does God call it Good News? And why in the world would you want to make it hard for people? We are not to hinder anyone who wants salvation in Christ. All they need to do is call on His name.
I believe people who try to make salvation seem hard are people who just won't accept the truth of the Gospel. To those people is it hard to be saved. They're so full of pride and unbelief that they cannot fully accept the Gospel. The Law is still nullifying their faith in Christ. They still believe they must do something. If they didn't then why would they say it's hard to be saved? They imply that it depends upon their own faithfulness to meet some unknown level of service. They believe salvation is their life dedicated to Christ rather than Christ's Life dedicated to saving us.
