When Not To Inoculate!

When asked what advice he would give Christians, Mahatma Gandhi said, “I would suggest that you must practice your religion without adulterating or toning it down.” 
jonesJones then writes the following: “The greatest living non-Christian asks us not to adulterate it or tone it down, not to meet them with an emasculated gospel, but to take it in its rugged simplicity and high demand. But what are we doing? As someone has suggested, we are inoculating the world with a mild form of Christianity, so that it is now practically immune against the real thing.”   (E. Stanley Jones, The Christ of the Indian Road, “The Great Hindrance.)
