The meaning of Christian life

Rev’d Christopher Harrison suggests that the Bible can help us to understand the world in which we live

A well-known course in Christian discipleship challenges us to ask ourselves, ‘What is the purpose of life?’ Most of the time we tend to be so preoccupied with the demands of daily life that we ponder on such matters only in moments of crisis, or perhaps at times of change in our lives. It is easy to be carried along so briskly through life by the flow of media stimulation, by the search for pleasure or money, or by the need to be accepted by others, that we always sidestep such questions when they rear their heads.

It was deeply saddening to read recently that thieves had stolen Derby City Council’s Christmas lights, worth around £20,000, just before they were due to be put up in the streets. How, one asks, can anyone be so cynical as to commit such a crime? One wonders, moreover, how the thieves expected to be able to realise the value of the proceeds from their nefarious crime –who would want to buy a lorry load of Christmas decorations?

I wonder if you can tell where in the Bible each of these quotations comes from? In fact none of them comes from the Bible - at least in the form given above. St Paul wrote that ‘the love of money is the root of all evil’ (1 Timothy 6.10) - which is very different from attributing all evil to money. ‘Gentle Jesus, meek and mild …’ is the beginning of a hymn by Charles Wesley, the first verse of which became a popular prayer for children. Incidentally, it is wrong to associate meekness with weakness, at least in the Biblical meaning of the word; meekness means, rather, the ability to suffer with patience, and to keep one’s strength under control. ‘Charity begins at home’ sounds as if it could come from the Bible, but in fact is first found in the writings of the Roman author Terence, in the 2nd century A.D. Dickens wrote ‘Charity begins at home, but justice begins next door’ (in ‘Martin Chuzzlewit’). When the second part of this proverb is omitted, the phrase becomes a very tempting excuse for limiting our generosity to those who are close to us, which is not Biblical at all.
