What is a Christian?
This post is not about me picking one religion over another, it is only an investigation and my reasoning for the use of the word.
While back tracking my postings checking on visitors I noticed that many times I use the word Christian, so I started to wonder just what people think about me and/or my use of this word.
So, I started my homework.
It would seem that the churches have the basic’s?
Although I found many sites giving many of their answers to the question at hand.
Guess that I am starting to see why there are so many different denominations with their own churches?
I chose to stay away from website addresses with this posting for that very reason.
I would be filling this post with addresses and also this post is not me picking one over another.
Christianity teaches, or at least what I see in their bibles, it should teach
The mark of a true Christian is love for others and obedience to God’s Word
When I use the word or words with it in the sentence I am thinking,
“To walk as if one is Christ!”
Yes, you must believe in Christ.
Yes, you must believe that Christ is the 2nd part of the trinity.
Yes one must believe that Christ came to Mother Earth and why?
All Christians say that they believe this.
So, if a Christian does believe, why not believe in Christ’s words,
1 John 2:4-10New International Version (NIV)
4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God[a] is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
7 Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard. 8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister[b] is still in the darkness. 10 Anyone who loves their brother and sister[c] lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.
So why all of the back biting, back stabbing, lies, half truths and judging by our “Christian members” in our government?
Is this the words that Jesus Christ has sent you (Christians) out into the world for?
