a definition of christianity


I read this definition : “Christianity is hungry people telling other hungry people where the food is.”
why did I bother to share this?
Because like so many platitudes repeated by those lacking originality it doesn’t even make sense! It attempts to imply the sharing of the means of sustenance between seekers, I get that. It appears to offer some means of satiation in a starving world. But the notion of a prescription written millennia ago, or a recipe handed down and altered inter-generationally, is what I find challenging. Demeaning even. Forgive me Jesus, you know I’m not referring to You here, but to those hoardes of conditioned followers of some form of Your Word. Is it arrogance which leads me to sense that God prefers those who think for themselves?
