Should I or Shouldn't I?

There once a lady that was trying to figure out if she wanted to

become a Christian. She started a pros and cons list by drawing a

line down the center of a piece of paper. She gingerly wrote PROS on

one side and CONS on the other side. She knew that her life was

going to change with this important decision.

Next, she contemplated what was a positive aspect of being a

Christian. She looked up at the ceiling and sighed. And just as

lightning came down from Heaven, she wrote: “when I die I will go to

a beautiful place called Heaven”. Now, that she had that on that

side she thought what would be a negative of being a Christian.

Again she pondered at that question then wrote: “leaving my loved

ones and family behind that had not made that choice”. The woman

became perplexed as she thought in her heart about this very

statement.

She continued to write down the positives of choosing Christ

and then, the negatives. She looked down at her paper and could

think of no other opposites. And she saw to her amazement that her

list of cons were only a few.And she knew at that very moment that

the unseen hand of God had led to her to a new life.

She bowed her head humbly and asked Jesus to come in her life

that very moment. She felt so relieved that she did not let the

negative side win in her mind and soul. And she felt confident that

she would do all that God told her about telling her family about Him

and letting them have the choice to accept Him.

I feel that this writing assignment was just that: a writing assignment.

If Jesus wasn't listed as the LORD AND CHRIST on the Pros side, there is no reason to try the live a life like a Christian.

Sorry but I did not look for anything else.

Let the topics stir your interests, fears, longings or even pain to bring forth something unique or maybe even something different.

Keep writing from your inner self.

Your descriptions were very good and I liked your writing style, but I have one issue. The mindset for someone to follow Christ because it is the best for them isn't very correct. We should follow Him because He made us, He is God and we know he always has our best in mind!
Keep it up! :)

It's interesting that you chose this way to present the topic. I have interacted with people who take it even farther and seem to want to make a business plan out of Christianity.

It is definitely a choice, though, that nobody can make for anybody else.

Good job.
