Does Posting Pictures Of Men Of God On Your Socials Make You A Christian? by Odewaleadesoye(m): 8:51am On May 09
Good morning and happy Sunday to you all!

It's very common nowadays to see Christians posting pictures and videos of the men of God on their social media platforms.

What's your view on that?

Does Posting Of their pictures on the socials makes someone a Christian and who are the men of God?

Please let's discuss.

My view:

NOBODY is MAN OF GOD, we are only men helped my God!

Posting of the pictures of men of God doesn't make someone a Christian and moreover the purpose for posting the pictures varies;

1. Some might be to "claim spirituality".
2. Some to honour and reverence them.
3. While some is to feel among.

It's okay to respect them but what makes someone a Christian is when they are led by the Holy Spirit and bear fruits that make them recognizable as Christians

Having the Picture of a Pastor on your DP does not make you a Christian or Born again.

Being Born by a Pastor, Bishop or Born Again Father/ Mother does not make you a Christian...

Being born inside the Church does not make u a Christian..

Being a Gospel musician or singing in the Choir does not make you a Christian

Being called a Pastor, Prayer warrior and all that does not make you a Christian.

Bearing names like Mary, Peter, Jacob, Daniel or even JESUS does not make us Christians

The Apostle were first called Christians in Antioch because the people saw the Life of JESUS Christ in them. They were Christ like.
Acts 11.

A Christian is not a Sinner and a Sinner not a Christian ( 1John 3:8-9)
Until we have a Personal Genuie Encounter with JESUS Christ and begin to live according to HIS Word ( The Bible). This is what makes us Heaven Bound. This is what makes us Christians.

First, before calling them ‘men of God,’ are all they preach of God?

Is Trinity, Immortality of the soul, hell fire, and karma.. among others, of God?


Their generic marketing tools: tithe, offerings, seed-sowing, miracles and magic, prosperity... are they of God?



These are gods of men!


You are welcome.

No, that is just a show off behavior
Truth is Jesus never used the term Christian to describe his followers
Rather he called them servants, disciples and friends which indicate varying degrees of fellowship, revelation and encounters
I believe the Scriptures below help illustrate this better
May the good Lord help us all to follow him in spirit and truth
Amen


Entry Dimension
John 3: 1-3
1.There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2.The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3.Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Deeper dimension
Matthew 4: 19
No 2: And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you

Even deeper dimension
Philippians 3: 7 -14
7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

The ultimate pursuit, never forget, is that one's name is written in the book of life
Shalom

I don't know when Africans will stop idolizing these so called men of God. This is why many of them act immoral and not sanctioned.

For me, unless the pastor can die for my sins, otherwise, no.

This question is really really dumb if you ask me.. It's more like you were idle and decided to come up with this to make yourself busy.
As everyone should know.. Christianity simply means living like christ.. What has just posting pictures of a pastor got to do with "living like jesus christ"
