Fake News: "Following Me Will Be Easy"
The answer to this question is a good post-modern one, yes and no. Jesus’ command to “Follow Me” made it less rigid and therefore easier and less burdensome than the Jewish laws of the day. At the same time, Jesus calls us to take up our/His cross and follow Him. Following Jesus gives us
a life full of meaning and purpose but it is not easy with the challenges of faithfully following Him in our culture.
