The Reverend Engebret O. Midboe
as reported in The Washington Post
Washington, District of Columbia
A Rockville pastor said [recently] that the way to tell a Christian today is to observe how he does good. If he does good as a matter of course, automatically, because his nature has been changed by Christ, then he is an authentic Christian, Rev. Engebret O. Midboe said in a sermon, "Contemporary Characteristics of Christ's Community."
But if he does good from "a passing impulse of pity," or to ease his uneasy conscience because of overindulgence, or to get his name on a list of contributors, or because "a gift was the easiest way out of an uncomfortable interview," then he does not qualify as a Christian, the pastor said.
