Many people have such a poor experience in their Christianity that as far as they are concerned, it’s not worth sharing with anyone else.
Christianity is far, far better than most Christians realize! It’s about caring love for others—what could be better than being part of a group of people who really care about you and are willing to get serious about helping you when you are in need? People who will share your joys and your sorrows. But even better than this is the presence of God’s own Spirit in your life—the Spirit whose presence brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, and self control. All the things that make this life really good are found in Christianity, you’ll never find so much joy and peace anywhere else in this world. But the best news is that Christians get to participate in things beyond this world—in the creative works of an eternal and infinite creator. And it’s not that hard to become a Christian—all you have to do is focus your life on living for God. I didn’t say living by the rules of some preacher or teacher. The prophet Micah put it very well: “He has showed you, Oh human, what is good, and what does God require of you but to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God?” Do justice—that means do the right thing. Love mercy—that means forgiving people (turning retribution over to God because he knows how to do it exactly right) and caring about the needs of others. Walk humbly—that means no arrogance or selfish pride. How easy and right that is!! It just means ending the rebellion against God and learning to live in the ways of doing right.
The flip side of this is that those who refuse to end the rebellion can’t be accepted into the eternity God has planned—they can’t be trusted to work in his creations. They will be fit only for the garbage heap. Some think there is no garbage heap, but God says there is and he says that you will not like it at all!
I strongly encourage you to find the Christianity that is really worth sharing. If you find the real thing, you won’t be able to shut up about it. It’s just that good. For help in finding this, read the book Revitalizing Christianity. Better yet, get the book and the study guide and really study this material. Even better, get a group together to seriously study this new perspective on Christianity that is only about 2,000 years old.
