T-Shirt Theology

Here is another one of those ridiculous t-shirts created by "Christians" emulating the culture. The implication here is that Jesus, or the way to Jesus, is simply EASY. What does the Bible say about this?

Compare this culturally relevant t-shirt to Scripture: "Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few."

Yes, salvation is free but sanctification is not! Jesus is not easy. The road to life is rough and rugged and only the righteous reach it.

I like that shirt too. I think the message is accurate: Jesus is not just an easy solution, it's the ONLY one. I think you are dwelling too much in one single verse. There are dozens of other verses in the bible that, when used withouth a context the way you used "the narrow way" one, would say the exact opposite thing. I believe we are lost without Jesus. and WITH Jesus, we have a chance, no matter how hard the "way" may be, it will always be easier than a lifetime without Him. Sorry, I think the shirt is right.
