Lost People Often Have More Sense Than Some Christians

Common Sense Commentary:

"And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light." Jesus
said it in Luke16:8.

Gandhi was not a Christian, but was, as far as we can
tell, an honest and committed man to humanity and to
India.  He died without Christ ... lost forever, though his
last words were, "Oh God". The Bible warns that, before
a person is spiritually born again, they are "...without
Christ ... strangers from the covenants of promise,
having no hope, and without God in the world."

Mahatma Gandhi listed "Seven Social Sins"

1 - Wealth Without Work
2 - Pleasure Without Conscience
3 - Knowledge Without Character
4 - Business Without Ethics
5 - Science Without Humanity
6 - Religion Without Sacrifice
7 - Politics Without Principle

My comments of each of the above truths from an unsaved, decent man.

#1 - I have known professing Christians who expected the Government
 or "someone" to supply their medicine, food, housing, and retirement.
#2 - I have known people, even professing Christians, who seemingly
felt no guilt about some fleshly, sinful pleasure.
#3 - I have known professing Christians who were highly educated
and intelligent, whose character was full of contradictions.
#4 - I have known professing Christian, business people who casually
overcharged or lied to their customers.
#5 - Science is a God given asset to the human race but has often been
used, by Popes, Pharisees, Politicians and Religionists against people.
#6 - A most common  "Christian" failure in America is "Religion
without sacrafice"Professing Christ is not Possessing Christ.
#7 - "Politics without priniciple" is the diabolical tool of the world's
politicians to manipulate, bleed and control the masses of people. RB

All truth is God's truth. When non-Christians hit upon and profess these truths, we have a duty to point it out.

Recently, I've been reading the collected works of the great Greek philosopher, Aristotle. Wow, I have been stunned time and time again how Aristotle hits upon Biblical principles without direct knowledge of the scriptures.
