Does it Work?
by Berni Dymet
Titus 2:11-12 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all, training us to renounce impiety and worldly passions, and in the present age to live lives that are self-controlled, upright, and godly...
For years - I looked at this whole Christianity gig - and to tell you the truth, from where I sat - it just didn't really fly.
I mean, big stone churches. Bibles. Bishops. All those trappings - somehow got in the road of what it was all about.
The question that I needed to have answered was - well, does it work? Clearly, if I became a Christian there are some things that I'd have to give up. No good mincing words - Christianity does has a moral basis to it. So if I was going to have to give up some things - well, I'd want to know that it made sense. That it worked.
Not unreasonable really.
I don't know quite how to put it without sounding trite - but 10 years on - for me, absolutely it works. But it's no good me telling you that. That's a decision each one of us has to make for ourselves.
And that's how it should be. All I'd like to do is to encourage you - don't waste this life.
Explore. Investigate. Examine. Experience.
