Christianity is all about character and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s not just a religion or a religious denomination. Christianity is not a man-made system, nor a denomination but it’s the faith and the person of Jesus Christ Himself.
Who is a Christian?
Are you a real genuine Christian or you are fake, a liar and a hypocrite? Check yourself and see to it that you are not a hybrid contemporary mediocre backslidden Christian. Well, you might be a religious dignitary graduated from the best Seminary college, you might have read all the Christian literature available in the world, you might be a member of the biggest church in the world, but until you are converted to Christ, you will not enter the kingdom of God.
A Christian is any person born again of the spirit of God fully transformed and translated into the image of the Lord Jesus Christ. It was at Antioch that the disciples of Jesus Christ were first called Christians. They never called themselves Christians but the people who saw them called them Christians because they were moving in the full doctrine of Jesus Christ, and they walked in all his ways and preached in his name. Their faith was based upon the word of God (Jesus) and they did everything in that mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, the people in the city of Antioch called them Christians because they identified themselves with Jesus and all their character and lifestyle portrayed Jesus.
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
Therefore, let nobody boast around saying that he/she is Christian, but let your light so much shine so that people may see your good works and glorify God (Matthew 5:15-16). Let your faith, character, and lifestyle portray Christ. Bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit, walk in the Spirit, put on the full armor of God, and walk in simplicity of life and you shall be called Christian because Christ is alive in you. Attending Church every sunday, or becoming a church member, joining a church chior, speaking and praying in toungues does not prove that you are a christian.
There are very many false Christians in our generation. False Christians are those people who have impersonated themselves with Christ. These believed and confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and savior but failed to bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Their character and lifestyle are not of Christ but of the world.
False Christians formed for themselves certain religious denominations and are hiding there. They fail to acknowledge the supremacy of the son of God and the authority of God’s word over them and set for themselves manmade theological dogmas and ideologies to follow. Their faith is based upon the ideas, customs, and traditions of the church denomination. Though they call themselves Christians but indeed they are not because they have not put on Christ and their works are evil and abominable before God.
All religious denominations are worth nothing before God. God did not call us to become Catholics neither Protestants, Muslims, Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists, nor Pentecostals. God has called us to Himself that we may bear his very nature and develop his eternal attributes. He has called us to turn from darkness and enter his marvelous light that we may proclaim his good works in the land of the living.
God has not called us to be catholic Christians nor Pentecostal Christians but has called us to become genuine born-again Christians baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit walking in the perfect bright light of His Eternal Word.
It’s only a mistaken identity but you cannot be a Christian catholic. You can either be a catholic or a Christian. The two are completely different, i.e., Catholicism is headed by the pope and all teachings and doctrines are his ideologies, but Jesus is the head of Christianity and all doctrines and teachings are His Word.
You cannot be a gay or LGBT Christian. You are either LGBT or Christians, but the two can’t be combined. You have got to deny the world of sin around you, deny your religious denomination, or cult group, confess your sins to God and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior then you will become a Christian.
If you want to become a Christian, you must forsake your sins and be converted and without being born-again of the Spirit of God, you can never enter into the kingdom of God.
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
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.
