He Was Turned Away from Church

During Mahatma Gandhi’s student days he read the Gospels and thought that maybe he had found the cure to the caste system of India. He decided to go to church and ask the minister how to become a Christian. However, when he entered the building the usher refused to give him a seat, and suggested that he should worship with his own people.

Gandhi left the church and never returned. He said to himself, “If Christians have caste differences also, I might as well remain a Hindu.”
