    I think that those who have genuinely repented and taken the yoke of Jesus are not burdened. They rejoice when they see justice and righteousness. If there is any burden it is seeing the self sabotaging activity of both the world and hypocrites.

    As for herding cats, that may well be the case for those who glory in an image, who give lip service and live desperate lives of hypocrisy.

    God's Spirit is alive and active and has the keenest interest in those whose hearts are given to him .....and as Jesus so succinctly says, 'by their fruits you will know them'

    We will be judged harder than they in the OT. Grace brings a much harder judgment. An encounter with holiness ups the ante.

    28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
    29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
