This week in The Story we read about people who distorted God’s message. Webster defines distortion as follows: “To twist something out of its original shape.” The Church should be a representative of God. As the Church we are the body of Christ. We represent Christ to others. If we are the only Bible some people will ever read, then we don’t want to distort the image of Jesus to others. This doesn’t mean being perfect, it means not pretending we are! Authenticity is the mark of a true representative of Christ. Phoniness in Christians keeps people from Christ.
