There is always a differencebetween imitationand the
real thing. This differenceis not always as obvious
as we would like. It is possible to deceive people if
the imitation(isgood enough.
In ewelery, in art, and in many crafts we know of
imitations.The imitation is made for those who are not
able, or not willing to get the real thing. For some
it is that they are not willing to pay the price. For
others it is that they are interested in appearances,
and the imitationwill serve Just as well.
Imitation is supposed to be the sincerest form of flattery
This may be alright when a youngster imitates the parents.
When people think that all they need to do to be a
Christian, is to i9itate Christ then it is a tragic
thing. For all the people who say that Christ was a
fine example and that is all, salvation is only imitation.
If anyone could imitate Christ and gain eternal Life,
they would first have to live a life without sin. This
alone lets out anyone that I have ever met. Therefore
the Bible says that it makes salvation impossiblefor
anyone. If Jesus Las ust showing us how then it is our
duty to see how -^ny have raised themselvesfrom the
dead. This will be the number of people who have"
eternal life. I know of no record other than for
Jesus Himself, so it is safe to say that there has been
no imitation that has met the standards set by Christ.
This is the part of Christ that Pll the world with
any ustice follows.This is the Christian way of life.
The Bible says that Jesus is not only our Example but
Re is also our Saviour. He does not say only 'do what
I do but He also says Since you cannot do it for
yourself I will be happy to do it for you'. It is as
y ur Saviour that He gives you Life, and not ust a
way of life.
