Authenticity

The question is about being authentic and what that looks like. It is not treating everyone the same - mainly because everybody is different! Being authentic has more to do with living out my faith in life, not prescibing my actions as the same for everyone. You could use "love", but love looks different to different people. The point is to be true to yourself, having the understanding that you are above all honest with yourself. Truth without honesty breeds fanaticism - not good. Truth with honesty breeds humility as we see our fallen condition and need for God.
