The reality of the Christian path

The way of God from the beginning of time and from the creation of the human race has been the way of the cross and death.  How did you get your idea that everything is just the opposite?  You must realize that you are outside the way of God, that you are far from Him, that you do not wish to walk in the steps of the Saints, but want to make some special way for yourself and travel by it without sufferings.  The way of God is a daily cross.  No one has climbed to heaven by living a life of pleasure.
