Let’s Be Real!

The Hindu philosopher, Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), once said of Christians: “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians.” He also remarked: “Oh, I don’t reject Christ. I love Christ. It’s just that so many of you Christians are so unlike Christ. If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.” How true for the entire world! Christ’s actions synced with His words. “What Christ taught, He lived…. And more than this; what He taught, He was. His words were the expression, not only of His own life experience, but of His own character. Not only did He teach the truth, but He was the truth. It was this that gave His teaching, power” (E.G. White). Want credibility? It’s not what we say, it’s what we do—and are. Let’s be real! (John 13:15; Matthew 5-7.)—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
