This has nothing to do with the way I act. The definition of a Christian in Wikipedia is a person who follow’s or adheres to Christianity based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.
Christianity defined in Wikipedia says (among other things) that Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the savior of humanity who’s coming as the Messiah was prophesied in the Old Testament.
Meriam- Webster defines a Christian as one who professes beliefs in the teachings of Christ.
Not one secular definition could I find defines Christianity as ACTING like a Christian!
That is correct! I do not walk around acting like a Christian for your personal interpretation . I can sit around on the couch and eat baloney sandwiches all day and still be saved. This is not for you to decide. Being a Christian in the world in which I live in is about a relationship with Christ. I go to Church, New life Christian Fellow ship. My Pastors are the Linkous family who I have learned so much from over the years of observing and listening. Nowhere will you find a Christian pastor or preachers say that you must ACT a certain way to be a Christian!
People who have professed Jesus Crist as their savior are simply saved from the fiery depths of hell by His grace. Some people we don’t think we will see in heaven are going to be there. It’s not our choice- we don’t decide, so for all of you out there who think a Christian should ACT a certain way, you are wrong!!
There are multitudes of people in this world who have issues, as well as Christian’s.
Being a Christian doesn’t mean I have it all together in my life. It simply means I have professed with my mouth that Jesus Christ is my savoir and salvation and nothing else is possible except through Him. We all try to act like Christ at times; we do the best we can. Other times we fail to act like Christ, This doesn’t mean I have lost my Christianity. This is for no one to judge. Ever. You can take all your religious rituals and be as good as you want to be but this doesn’t make you a Christian. Your life changes in your heart but you will not instantly change on the outside. Unfortunately, you may never change on the outside when Christ move’s in your heart.
So for all of my non-Christian and Christian friends who are reading this – if you even got to this point, Remember, don’t judge us- or anyone for that matter. We will not act a certain way and we will not act the way you expect us to act.
When someone says the prayer of salvation; that is their choice not yours!
