Christianity & Pleasure
by Fr. David R. Smith
SP3
We are often unaware that pleasure is the engine that drives us. Without this awareness, we lunge from activity to activity with no sense of what we really want, no sense of what really gives our lives joy. The saints were "all or nothing" Christians. We look to them through lovely and comforting icons in the church, but imagine St. Athanasius the Great, walked into the room where you're reading this right now. What would he say to you? "You're a wonderful Christian, I'm proud of you!" Probably not. He would, if you're anything like most Christians, tell you to stop reading books and start to weep for your sins. Would you do it, though? Would you follow his advice? That's the question. Some believe that Christianity is all pleasure, and some believe that Christianity is no pleasure at all. Which is it? Living the Christian life is a matter of understanding how some pleasure draws us toward God and other pleasure takes us away from Him.
