Being a Christian means the world has alot of expectation from you in terms of how you conduct yourself in day today activities.
Being a follower of Christ means you believe Jesus to be lord and saviour. The book of John 14:6 "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no-one comes to the father but by me."
Every Christian believes that Jesus Christ is the only way to reach God and so that is what makes them christians. In today's article, I am going to give you 5 characters that should not define a real Christian, if you still practice these 5 things then it could be a sign your Christianity is questionable.
Do you have any person in your life that you find difficult to forgive? It could be your parents because of what they did to you years back, it could be a husband or wife who hurt you but you still do not want to let them go. It could be a friend even who hurt you. Remember Christ died so that the sins of every man could be forgiven and you also have to extend the forgiveness to others. Forgiveness is what defines Christianity because even Jesus himself said that we should love our enemies and do good to those who persecute us.
2. DrinkingChristianity does not allow alcoholism or any other thing related to that. The Bible also says in 1cor 6:10 nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the kingdom of God.
The Bible makes it very clear that drunkards will not inherit the kingdom of God.
3. Full of hate
Love is the greatest commandments of all. Any Christian that claims to love God but does not love his neighbors is not doing the right thing. Even those that don't deserve your love should practice love, even your enemies should be shown love and that is real Christianity.
4. Keep on sinning
The Bible says in the book of Romans 8:10 "but if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive be asked of righteousness.
The moment you observe that you are constantly sinning then you have to realize that there is a serious problem. Sometimes we fall as humans but the moment it becomes continuous, then that definitely questions your Christianity. But anytime you find yourself sinning make sure you ask God for forgiveness because is very merciful and forgives every sin.
5. Use of filthy or abusive language
Filthy language or abusive language should not come from a true Christian. That also includes things like lying. A Christian should be kind in words and and not let abusive words from their lips.
Every Christian is an ambassador for Christ and should therefore be an example and a good letter to be read. What do you think are some other habits that don't define a real Christian?
