Charles M. Sheldon wrote a novel in 1896 called In His Steps. In a nutshell, the book told the story of a preacher who challenged the congregation where he preached to commit to a year of total submission of walking in the steps of Jesus. The challenge was to pause before making any decisions and ask "what would Jesus do" in that particular situation. The book tells of the drastic changes that took place in the lives of those who submitted to this challenge. And then again in the early 90's this idea of WWJD really became popular with books, bible studies, T-Shirts and Braceletts.
There is a fundamental flaw with this idea. . .
