Charlatans

The religious world is full of them. 

The other day I was doing research for a sermon illustration. While reading the details of a man’s life, I finally saw a picture of him. I took out my notebook and wrote a simple line:

“Never trust a faith healer who wears eyeglasses.”

I remember reading that somewhere.

The application is simple:  If anyone ever tells you that you can have anything you want if only you believe. They are a fraud. Sometimes their own life betrays their message. 

But before I throw stones, I have to ask, is there anything in my life that doesn’t align with what I am teaching? “Physician, heal thyself” is often excellent advice.
