We can all agree with the title of the old 1968 hit single, “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing.” That’s what we want. Only the real thing is worth something to us.
When it comes to collectible items, the replicas won’t do. The 1906 American Tobacco Company baseball card of Honus Wagner is the rarest baseball card ever produced. One of the more recent sales of this card sold for close to 3 million dollars. A replica is basically worth nothing. You can get one for less than a dollar. When it comes to the reporting of the news, accuracy is everything. We want to know what really happened and is happening in the world. One of the most famous wrong headline published in American History appeared on November 3 of 1948, “Dewey Defeats Truman.” Whoops. In 1912, going on limited information, many newspapers asserted that the Titanic had been saved. Can you imagine the devastation for many who wrongly had hope held out to them, only to be crushed as reality unfolded?
Well, how much more important is it that we get the truth when it comes to matters of eternity? How important is it that we have an accurate understanding of the good news of Christianity? What is it worth to us? Please join us for our new series in the book of Galatians.
