John 1:19-34

Just look around at what sells today:  ‘Real coffee, real food, real clothes, real cars, real furniture.’ – And of course, churches jump on the bandwagon:  We offer you ‘real church with real people’. – ‘Not like all those fake churches out there with fake people’?

This quest for authenticity is understandable to a point. – Many secular and government leaders prove to be corrupt liars. – Even worse, church leaders are exposed to be phoneys and pretenders.

People are tired of hypocrisy…
