Discrepancies between Christian precept and practice

10 March 2015, 19:17

The discrepancies between Christian precept and practice today are well known, thanks to ministers and priests. Christians are suposed to do unto others as they would have others do unto them. They are suposed to give others double what they ask. They are suposed to share all they have and to seek out those in trouble so as to minister to their need.

In practice, most nominal Christians are businessmen, pofessional men or workers who drive a hard bargain, look out for their own, regard the poor as shiftless and undeserving and stay as far away from prisons, slums and charity homes and hospitals as they can. The discrepancies between teaching and practice are reconciled by participation in the rituals of church attendance, baptism, communion, prayer and christian burial, to name but a few. There are, of course, a minority of christians who live according to Christ teachings. Among them are such martyrs as Brasillian Camillo Torres, Martin Luther King jnr, and few, fighting for justice or serving the poor.
