"When I first encountered Christians, I thought they were the lamest people around.
So, what was it about them that appealed to me? They were real about knowing and following Jesus. There was an authenticity about them that drew me to them, then to Jesus.
That's what I was looking for, something to believe in; something or someone worth changing for; something to die for; something that was genuine, real and authentic but most of all true." -- Tammie Nickles
People are still looking for authenticity today. I have seen generations with names like Boomers, Busters, X, Y, and Z come and go. Church music and style has changed throughout our history, but our message must not. It cannot, because the gospel is the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Bible clearly tells us, "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). Jesus plainly said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the life. . . " (John 14:6).
There are counterfeits out there, but when we authentically proclaim and live Jesus the truth will be revealed to those who have ears to hear.
Many are still searching for the Truth... may we be authentic in Christ.
