Jack’s Winning Words 1/16/17
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” (Gandhi) MLK Jr called Gandhi, “The greatest Christian in the modern world.” We often make the mistake of equating “Christian” with being a member of a church. Jesus said that you will know them by how they express love for society’s oppressed. A recent survey, using church growth/decline as the yardstick, might have come up with a different result if the pollsters had used the measure suggested by Jesus. ;-) Jack
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: I wonder if Gandhi believed in Jesus as his savior?!?====JACK: Is someone a Christian who says that Jesus is his Savior, but doesn't show love for the oppressed?
FROM FACEBOOK LIZ: i think you are correct, & spirituality is coming back into vogue. ====JACK: What is spirituality, from your point of view?====LIZ: believing in a power greater than oneself, & striving to
be a good person, whatever that means to the individual. no church, doctrine required, necessarily.====JACK: The Church helped sort out spirituality for me, to understand the background of "religion" and to learn a system of values.
