A few days ago, during a meeting of one of our church Sunday School classes, a lady in our fellowship said something very simple yet very profound.
From what I'm told, a few of the class members were involved in a fairly intense discussion about what the parameters of Christianity should be. The topic focused in particular on Roman Catholicism. At one point the following question was posed, "How wide/narrow should our definition of Christianity be?"
In response, one lady said, "This wide," and held up her bible in her hand.
I hope my beliefs and practices, as I seek to follow after Christ, are as this lady said: as wide (and as narrow) as what the entire bible says.
No more. No less.
