A Life of Authenticity
Jefferson Bethke, Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus
John’s letter was written to help us recognize some clear signs of true Christian faith. The third of these from 1 John 2: 3-11, is a life of authenticity. There never seems to be any difficulty identifying fake religion…but how to identify authentic religion – that’s the challenge. John points us to the fruit of authentic faith (obedience to God's commands), the route of authentic faith (walking with Christ), and the heart of authentic faith (love for one another).
