Sincerity or Truth?

When it comes to Christianity, the post-moderns are not asking, "Is it true?", they want to know, "Do I want to be like you?"

They are wanting to see a difference in the way we live and treat others. They want to see that Christ is making a difference.

Because if our lives are not worth imitating, they will move on.

This is just the way it is.

However, there are some inherent flaws with evaluating Christianity, or any other religion in this way. Because the thing that determines the genuineness and the truth-ness of a religion is sincerity, not whether it is true.

And that is dangerous.

There are many sincere people who are wrong.

While I believe late-term abortions are wrong, killing a doctor who performs them is just as wrong. And the people who support such action, while they may be sincere, are wrong - not because I think so, but because Bible tells me that murder in all its forms is wrong.

Don't confuse truth with sincerity. While its nice to hvae some passion and be sincere, the more important question to ask is, "Is it true?" "Is that what God says in the Bible?"
