On Being a Christian
Gandhi's story about Christianity is very sad and embarrassing, but very true.
Gandhi liked Christ and his teachings. He wanted to follow him so he went to a Christian church to ask how to become a Christian. He was turned away because he was neither a high caste Indian nor white. Gandhi never went back.
He said that Christians are nowhere like the Christ they follow. He said, "I would be a Christian, if it weren't for Christians." What powerful words.
It reminds me of the words of a song, "They will know we are Christians by our love, by our love. Yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love."
As with most things, it is easier said than done.
Maybe we should start by being aware of how a true Christian should act. And from this awareness, let us follow through with our Christlike words with actions.
