Do you know Him… really?

Posted: March 30, 2011 in Truth

1 John 2:4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him

Have you ever had someone tell you they are a Christian and then go off cussing like a sailer and talk about adultery like its no big deal? I think we all have. There is a huge misconception in this country that if we say a prayer one time we are good with God, no matter what else we do in life. Others think that it is about being a “good person” and they ignore God completely while thinking that they somehow have a deal with the almighty.

John writes that we are “liars” if we say we are Christians and do not obey Him. I don’t want to be a liar, do you? Of course not!

A.W. Tozer wrote, “The truth is that salvation apart from obedience in unknown in the sacred scriptures.”

We must look to the scriptures and see what they say about our actions. We cannot base our Christianity on what others are doing, because we are all fallen men.

What does God think about the way we are living? Would Jesus call you a Christian?

God be with you as you study the Bible and find out the answers to your questions, and please feel free to post a question on this blog, or go here FAN PAGE and post a comment, or just click LIKE 🙂

Thank you and God bless you,
