Let a man's faith be what it may, if a man lives up to the commands taken from the Bible, he will have a Christian character. "Love your neighbor as yourself", "Do to others as we would have others do to us", "Feed the hungry, clothe the naked and relieve the distress of the widow and orphan", and "Do good to those who despise us." McDonald says a great deal about serving God. He thinks this is a misunderstanding because God does not need any service. Abstract Number - 442
