As a preschooler I found a short length of electrical cord that had been cut off from an appliance. When I plugged it in, sparks flew! It was a long time before I plugged anything else in!
How easy it is for our thinking to be permanently short-circuited by an unpleasant encounter.
What happens when we get burned by someone claiming to be a Christian? “Well, if that’s what Christianity is all about, I want no part of it!”
Does that give us an out?
Yes, there are frauds and pretenders posing as Christians. Christ will take care of hypocrites (Matthew 13:41-42).
Does the counterfeit negate the genuine? Do hypocrites exempt any of us from obeying Christ? (Hebrews 5:8-9)
