The thing that bothers me about christianity is that most of it is centered around the afterlife. People spend their whole lives worrying about their status after they are dead. In fact so much that they forgot to live. We have to be in the here and now and not in the future. Certainly not Ithe past or we forget to appreciate the present for what it is. An evolving universe. If you compare the present with the past, your never going to be happy but people generally equate the past with the good old days. They haven't learned the beauty of the present and what it has to offer.
