Be wary of pretenders, Christianity: “John the Baptist is one of the most distinctive characters in the New Testament. He had an unusual flair for fashion, wearing wild-looking clothing made of camel's hair and a leather belt around his waist. He lived in the desert wilderness, ate locust and wild honey and preached a strange message. Unlike so many people, John the Baptist knew his mission in life. He clearly understood that he had been set apart by God for a purpose.

John the Baptist passionately urged that we each consider our ways and repent.  I believe that to be good advice today, and probably more urgent than ever. There are a good many professed Christians in the world today, and an endless and infinite variety.  Some actually make an effort to follow the teaching of Christ.  Many do not.  Be wary of pretenders.  SC
