“Complacent Christianity” by Reality of Christ

Original Post from Reality of Christ

“I feel my purpose in life is to help others,” replied the young massage therapist I encountered at a salon. She seemed sweet, happy, and content with where her life had taken her.

So I inquired, “What do you mean?”

“Well,” she continued, “I am an Indian healer and I feel as if it is my purpose to help those in need. If someone needs an extra plate of food, I bring it to them. If someone needs me to pray over them, I do that.  If someone needs a healing massage, I give them one.  My late grandmother was a healer and she has passed that gift onto me. So I set aside my life to help others. And am available at a moment’s notice.”


I have to admit I was a little taken back by her comment as I had yet to be approached by someone who believes that they are a real Indian healer. This was new ground for me. But she continued.

“I show love to everyone I meet and I believe that it is my duty to do good, and treat all people with love and respect. I refuse to get married so I can be of help to others. I have a heart to make people well. This is sometimes my downfall, but I know it is my purpose.”

It was at that point that I realized she meant every word she spoke. She seemed like a really good person but I couldn’t help but think, what a waste. Here she is doing all these good works, yet none of it will actually count for eternity since she’s not a believer in Jesus. I felt saddened at the thought. Then it hit me…
