By D Berg
isn't the Bible the traditional Holy Book of the West,
and isn't Christianity the religion of the Western World?
Although it's true that the Bible has been embraced
mostly by Western cultures, its revelation of Truth is
for everyone! Actually, its origins are not
"Western" at all! Most of the Bible was written
by prophets and seers from the Middle Eastern land of
Palestine, a unique land bridge that links the three
great continents of Asia, Africa and Europe.
The great Creator, God, from the pages of the Bible,
lovingly calls out to all men of all nationalities,
"Look unto Me and be saved, all the ends of the
Earth: for I am God, the God of all flesh, and besides Me
there is none else!"--Isaiah 45:22.
The Bible's appeal is universal: "Whosoever shall
call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, for the
Lord would have all men to be saved, to come unto the
knowledge of the Truth. For God shows no partiality and
is no respecter of persons, but in every nation, all who
love Him are accepted by Him!"--Rom.10:13; 1Timothy
2:4; Acts 10:34,35.--In other words, God freely offers
His Love, peace, blessings and Salvation to all of us,
regardless of our race, colour, nationality or social
But Christianity as practiced by many churches today
seems to be a rather selfish and closed religion,
amassing great wealth, lands, properties, buildings etc.
Sad to say, this is often the case. Much of what the
World views as "Christianity" today, has
strayed so far away from what simple, lowly Jesus,
originally taught to His followers, that very few
similarities can be found when you look at the way most
Christians live today, & compare their lives with
those of Jesus & His Disciples.
Jesus never preached any complicated ceremonies, rituals
or impossible-to-keep rules and regulations. Nor did He
ever say to build elaborate religious buildings or
cathedrals at the expense of the poor! He simply said
that our most important religious obligation was to
"love God and to love our neighbours as
ourselves."--Matthew 22:37-39. He Himself showed His
followers how to do this by His Own example of living a
life of love and compassion, "sharing with the poor,
healing the broken hearted, offering deliverance to the
captives, restoring of sight to the blind, and liberty to
them that are bound!"--Luke 4:18.
