I wonder if a lot of people who are Christians have had a rather nice life?

I know I phrased that odd but I know quite a few "Christians". They are nice people but very devout and pretty much always have been.

They are all white, middle class, privately educated, university graduates, plenty of money, nice jobs, one SAHM.

It must be easier to have faith in God if you've had a nice life? hmm

I'd like to believe but I'm not sure I can.

I am a Christian and no my life has not been a cakewalk.

Honestly sometimes the only thing that has gotten me through is my deep faith. I know every bump in the journey is for a reason.

I was raised in a Christian home and grew up VERY poor, my dad was a missionary and we lived how the indians did, we lived on the reservation. We had to haul water, use an outhouse, butcher our food. My family is Christian now, and we are very low income, dont even have a car as we cant afford one. We have a happy life and we are a strang close family, but we dont have money.Our riches are waiting for us in Heaven and we are happy with that.

I've had a pretty rough childhood. I am Christian and always have been. There are Christians in China that are persecuted, in other countries, too. They don't have a great life but still believe.

I'm Christian and I've definitely had some bumps on my road.

Why don't you expand this question to Muslims and Pagans? Anyone of any faith? It is all based on the same idea of a higher power of some sort.

I came to Christianity while battling depression in middle school. My life up to that point was not east, no. We were very poor and my parents were both alcoholic and abusive.

I am a christian and I know first hand that going through this life will not be easy. If it was then everyone would be joining and those who join assuming that would be the case, have all gotten a Rude awakening.

I'm an atheist and my life, besides a few bumps here and there, is pretty darn good.

My kids go to public school until college. Other than that your description fits. Maybe god rewards us for faith ;)
