‘Binds or blinds’ was a phrase used by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks on television today when discussing his new book ‘Not in God’s name. What an eloquent description of honest Christianity. There are so many expressions where Christianity is and has been a positive blessing to our communities and societies. Sadly, there are also times where in the name of our God and Christianity, we have been a negative influence – being our own worst enemy,
thinking, treating and speaking of others in a way that blinds ourselves and others.
Honest Christianity acknowledges both of these and makes a commitment to be an influence for blessing and a bind of and to all things good. To express grace, love, generosity, to seek to bring credit and bind each other to the benefits of our faith and God.
