WWJD – another perspective from A.B. Simpson:
I had earlier this year mentioned that the book "In His Steps" was not wholly endorsed by A.B. Simpson – a contemporary to the writer – Charles Sheldon. Here is another indication:
– From A.B. Simpson’s Christ in the Bible series – XVII – Romans (Christian Publications), p. 266 –
"What would Jesus do?" is a simple question which will settle every difficulty, and always settle it on the side of love.
But we cannot answer this question rightly without having Jesus Himself in our hearts. We cannot act Christ. This is too grave a matter for acting. We must have Christ, and simply be natural and true to the life within us, and that life will act itself out.
