No apologies for Jesus

E. Stanley Jones

When I read the following quote, I couldn’t helped but be moved by the reality of what E. Stanley Jones wrote. Good medicine for today 🙂

E. Stanley Jones, missionary and writer in India, nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize several times and awarded the Gandhi Peace Prize in 1961, wrote,

“When I go to India, I have to apologize for many things: for Western civilization, for it is only partly Christianized; for the Christian Church, often it too is only partly Christianized; for myself, for I am only a Christian-in-the making. But when it comes to Jesus, there are no apologies on my lips, for there are none in my heart. He is our one perfect possession”

– quoted by Michael Battle in Possessed by the Thing
