Local Version

You remember I shared in the last letter about having to bargain for many of our purchases. I was talking to a lady bargaining for a pair of tennis shoes for my wife to walk around in. They said they were Adidas, but they were only being sold, new, for $3.90. I asked for a discount and she pointed to the shoes and said but these are Adidas. I told her that I knew that they were not real Adidas, she said something to the effect of “No sir, these are Local Adidas”. I thought about it after a while and realized that that is the same thing some people think about Christianity. That this is not the real Christianity, but the local version. Thank God for the real thing.
