3 Things You Should Know About Your Christian Race by Thepasserby(m): 5:44am On Apr 02
A lot of people are just bearing the name Christian without even knowing what it entails. Have you ever asked yourself why Christianity is always under fire? Have you ever cared to know why the world goes agog the moment they hear rumours of a man of God falling? Have you ever asked yourself why it is quite difficult for people to speak badly about some religions or their leaders?

It's all because we are supposed to shine as a light to our generation and when the world discovers that we have fallen, they become disappointed in us, they crucify us for it.


Here are three things you should understand about your Christian Race.

1. It is a call to represent (2 Corinthians 5:20)
Every Christian is a kingdom ambassador representing God. When you became a Christian, you stopped living your own life and started living for God. Before you take any decision as a Christian, it is important you think twice because the world is watching. In case you don't know, people purposely annoy you, place some things in your path, try your patience only to test the Christ nature in you. They believe as Christians, the light of God should be seen in you.

2. It is a call for self denial
There is nothing as stubborn as the flesh. As Christians, one of the fruit of the spirit is self control. To be a Christian is to be able to say NO to the dictates of the flesh. You must carry your cross (temptations and persecutions) and follow after the master.

NOTE: SELF CONTROL IS NOT SELF CONTROLLED.

3. It is a personal race
Everybody is accountable for his or her actions. As Christians, your call is not attached to a man of God or particular denomination, it is a personal race which can only be run with Grace. People can only try to either help you or harm you. Until the day you have an encounter with Christ, you are not yet a Christian. When people encounter Jesus, everything about their lives changes.

Jesus Loves you.

I don't like hearing the bullshit about how xtians should be docile in the face of aggression.
See let's face it, Israel is where it all started from and where it all would end but guess what?
Israel doesn't take nonsense from any morafuqka. They'd blow ur arse off if you mess with them.

nowadays christianity is judged by the churches we go, to the point where many are raised under the lies of the church... They call themselves christians but they no longer follow Jesus

another ignorant person posing like he knows what he's talking about

Israelites aren't Christians

they don't believe Jesus was the Messiah because he didn't fulfill the messianic prophesies as made in Isaiah

therefore they are still practising JUDAISM


a Nigerian however believes the Jews (whose ancestors lived in Jesus time and interacted with Jesus) are wrong and how did a Nigerian know this? he knows from reading a book which was handed to his ancestors by their slavemasters

but the Jews must know less about Jesus because they saw him live unlike a Nigerian that was privileged to have been given the Bible after its been written, rewritten, revised, rewritten, translated , retranslated, reretranslated, translated again , had some words removed, had some words added, revised again, then a council decided the parts that are worthy and those that aren't, then revised again , retranslated, reretranslated, handed over to your ancestors,translated again, retranslated again and finally passed on to you almost 2000 years after this Jesus had died


let me shock you, THERE ARE FAR MORE MUSLIMS IN ISRAEL THAN THERE ARE CHRISTIANS

The religious affiliation of the Israeli population
as of 2011 was 75.4% Judaism , 16.9%
Muslim , 2.1% Christian


we carry Jesus for head while they laugh at us

In Nigeria.

Church goers/hypocrites: 80%

Christians: 20%


This cuts across other religious denominations too.

grin grin the name Jesus was even given by the nicean council... God no go consider say bible was translated or not revised or not besides God used people to write the Bible he has given us a place to start with so finding out the truth is left for us..not to forget some people have extra books in the bible and some don't know what they look like what if there's an element of truth in those books removed hmmm...well this all started when so called priest decided to use religion for politics... Christianity is an individual thing
