To discuss what Christianity is, it is helpful to start out with what it is not. Christianity is not moralism. Moralism is Christianity reduced to legalism that concerns itself with external standards of “right” and “wrong” which become the measuring stick by which we as persons judge ourselves and others (and are judged by God).
Many years ago, when I first wrote Bread for the Wilderness, a book on baking, my wife said to me, “What you have written in the chapter about the spiritual aspect of bread baking could be easily applied to any craft. It’s more or less universal.” I realized the truth of her statement, and in fact had already thought about the similarity between baking and calligraphy and, really, everything else.
