What is a Christian? Are YOU a Christian? “I was brought up in a Christian home.” That doesn’t make YOU a Christian. “My mother always went to church.’ That doesn’t make YOU a Christian. “I believe in doing good and helping others.” So do many who don’t have any time for Christ. That doesn’t make YOU a Christian. “I was baptised and confirmed.” So are thousands who care little about Christ. That doesn’t make YOU a Christian.“I believe in God.” – So does the devil. That doesn’t make YOU a Christian. So many SAY and THINK they are Christians yet rarely bother about Christ.”
WELL, WHAT THEN IS A CHRISTIAN?
Let us begin at the very beginning. In the beginning when God made man, He made him good and perfect and sinless. He wanted man to be His friend who would look after the earth. Everything that God made was perfect. But, God did NOT make man a robot. He gave him a precious gift of a free will to choose between good and bad.
He desires for man to love Him freely. But, man chose to disobey God; he made the wrong choice. He preferred to please himself rather than God. . He SINNED.
And so sin entered into the world. It is a disease we all have, “for all have sinned” (Romans 3:23) Sin is not only a matter of murder, stealing, robbery and adultery. It includes far more.
