Nov 01 – Ring Dispute

The Forever 21 Ring has a prominent X on its face and closely resembles the famous X-ring worn graduates of St. Francis Xavier in Antigonish. Because the X-ring is representative of academic achievement some graduates raised concerns about the similarity of the rings; so the retailer of the Forever 21 ring quickly agreed to pull the ring from its stores and website. The Forever 21 ring was, perhaps unintentionally, causing some non-graduates to appear to be graduates of the university, without having ever studied there. In like manner, some who have never come into a relationship with God through faith in His Son may appear to be Christians because of certain things they may say or do, such as going to church, being baptized, or professing to be Christians. But if we have not acknowledged our spiritual need and put our faith in Jesus Christ, we are really not Christians. That’s because Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
