What Does It Mean To Be A Christian?
I like this topic! Yep, if someone calls themselves a Christian, they better do their best to convey love and respect for others and attempt to show them the "love of God" through acceptance and respect.Christian doesn't mean perfect! Doesn't mean hypocrite or we are to judge "others".
Christian means you change their lives and show them where they are lacking God in their lives through acceptance and love.
God would never turn his back on his own creations, shun them away or reject them, pushing them farther and farther away. Not a great way to show the world what it means to be "Christian" especially when you are supposed to represent God's love.
God is love, love thy enemy. Don't love the sin, don't succumb to sin, judgement of others is actually a sin! "Judgement is mine sayeth The Lord", and definitely never judge another as if "Christian" means perfect and every right to!
Its sometimes almost impossible to be a good Christian. I find it very difficult on a weekly basis.
However that's okay, because I know God created EVERYTHING and EVERYONE and he forgives us for our sins if we ask and have a true heart. However, we need to try to be the best representation we can be from there on! We are human so we stumble, we fall, however, we are his creations, and we should know internally where our boundaries lie.
And its okay to be me... just as long as I remember whats right and whats wrong. I find it very hard to love thy neighbor at times, there are so many evil influences in this world and so many selfish and disrespectful attitudes (selfish). All we can do is our best.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believeth in him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life! For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, forever. Amen. God bless.
