|A Christian by PrinceofPeace17(m): 5:20pm On Feb 10|
It is of outermost necessity that we check & test the validity & authenticity of our christianity.
A Christian is not the name of any person, animal, place or thing.
A Christian is one who has confessesed the name of Christ & proceeds to being formed, conformed & transformed to the image of Christ.
Most people stop at the stage of confession no wonder they fall short of heavens expectation.
So many people today have the tag of confession why will they not yield to fornication, masturbation, pornography, stealing, lying, cheating & killing ?
I have a boyfriend we are having sex yet i go to church. Anty, you are complicating to the image of Christ.
I drink alcohol & smoke but i pray to God. Uncle, you are conflicting to the image of Christ.
Am a worker, pastor & minister but i still steal church money . Sir! Ma! you are confusing to the image of Christ!
You lied & cheated your customers or the company you work in but pay your tithe. Hello o, you are contradicting to the image of Christ!
Will it not be erroneously tragic to go to church & end in hell with some one who never went to church? Will it not be a gnashing of teeth galore to hold mic in church & end in hell with the native doctor in your village who held leaves?
This is a call back to Jesus!
You do not dip your hands into the plow & look back! No room for infidelity in Christ's community. Go back to Jesus, confess & repent!
A rededication is now needed for heaven bound consideration & if you are yet to surrender to Jesus, do it now!
A life without Christ is a life of multiple crises & finally eternal damnation.
Let us pray!

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from the evil one.

A christian is anyone born into a christian home by christian parents.
Confessing christ means to be converted from another religion into christianity
|Re: A Christian by PrinceofPeace17(m): 8:55am On Feb 12|
Please, consult the scriptures for more
|Re: A Christian by paxonel(m): 1:08pm On Feb 12|
PrinceofPeace17:there is nothing more than that in the scripture, dont listen to what people are saying
|Re: A Christian by budaatum: 5:31pm On Feb 12|
paxonel:Book big as that, "there is nothing more than that in" and they use so much paper?
I strongly suggest you listen. Angels don't waste paper!
|Re: A Christian by paxonel(m): 7:47pm On Feb 12|
Anyway,everything about the big book have been summarized to just only two laws.
Love God and love your neighbour.
So, its not about the bulkiness of the book
|Re: A Christian by budaatum: 8:01pm On Feb 12|
paxonel:Ok. It's just that I think the people who wrote it would be way too smart to wrap only "Love God and love your neighbour" in so much paper, and ink, but I'm new to this. Forgive me.
Angels wrote it, sha? Give me half so I don't score zero.
|Re: A Christian by paxonel(m): 10:05pm On Feb 12|
budaatum:you are far above zero and almost close to full.
You may be right it was angels, but the book says it was documented by inspired men.
Perhaps angels inspired the men
|Re: A Christian by budaatum: 10:46pm On Feb 12|
paxonel:If they were inspired people they only need a tiny little to become angels I think, considering who their boss was and the job they had to do. Yeah, that would do for me. They were angels all along or through their inspiration they became angels.
Its not right, but that will be my belief.
|Re: A Christian by paxonel(m): 2:22am On Feb 13|
budaatum:it seems you know something about who their boss was, can you tell me something about it?
|Re: A Christian by PrinceofPeace17(m): 2:31am On Feb 13|
Acts 11:26 talks about "disciples were first called Christians" & not people born into the "family of the disciples".
2 Cor 5:17 "Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!"
This is clearly saying that being a Christian is something you decide personally. You might be going to church with ur father a Christian coz ur commanded to, that does not make you a Christian.
|Re: A Christian by paxonel(m): 11:38am On Feb 13|
PrinceofPeace17:from that time henceforth parents who were first called christians started grooming their children to be christians, or will you groom any of your child to be muslim as a christian?
i am telling you now that anyone born into a christian home has been ingrafted into christ, The christian home is the christ. There are scriptures for this and no scripture saying a christian is someone not from a christian home
You can decide to remain christian or being converted to islam its a personal choice
where in the bible did you get this one from?
|Re: A Christian by budaatum: 12:45pm On Feb 13|
|Re: A Christian by budaatum: 1:03pm On Feb 13|
paxonel:God now, innit?
God is God. There's something about their boss
|Re: A Christian by PrinceofPeace17(m): 10:41pm On Feb 13|
Your choice, your opinion & your decision.
|Re: A Christian by paxonel(m): 1:50am On Feb 14|
PrinceofPeace17:are you scared to ask, were are scriptures?
Its your choice not to ask and shy away from scriptures and continue believing what you have already decided to believe
But certainly, someday, the truth about the structure of christianity will be revealed, and the general concensus belief of this modern day that christianity is a personal race will fade away.
Now look at this
Matthew 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage
As many as ye shall find.
This tells you that christianity comprises of as many who believes in christ, not as many who live their lives rightly according to the teachings of christ.
And everyone born into a christian home was made to believe in christ by their parents, that is an advantage.
It is a free gift.
No expectation from anyone but believing, thats all
