I think pouring or hand tying takes skill. I don't think either would be easy. Once you understand what needs to be done and how to do it and spend some time pouring or tying, it'd probably get easier but just starting out I would assume would be difficult. It's like I tell my children, a test is easy if you know the answers. It's tough if you are not prepared.
"But God demonstrates His own for love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
