Animosity toward Christianity

I just keep thinking that the people who complain about the hypocrisy of Christians have it really easy. It must be so much fun to live an amoral life. Of course, not saying that non-Christians are IMmoral. No, I could never be able to say that. But still, having no assumed visible standard to live by means that one is accountable only to self, and perhaps to society, but why should that actually be the case?

It occurs to me that it would be a bonus to have someone who claims that Christians are hypocritical to actually become a Christian. I mean, looking from one side of a fence at Christians is one thing. Being a Christian, one would guess that THAT would be a bit harder. Not only do you have to continue to live among non-believers, you have invited yourself as a target to all the people who assume that because you are now a Christian, that somehow makes you "perfect".

I'm not perfect. I'm just forgiven. My job is to run the race set before me until I reach the finish line. In the end, it comes down to setting your eyes on the prize. The prize: simply, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
