Responsible Christians are Rare

 Do you consider yourself a Christian?  Are you a responsible Christian?  So many people today claim to be “Christian” yet don’t follow Jesus’ lead in the slightest bit.  A responsible Christian reads the Bible daily (or as much as possible) to gain constant exposure to the teachings of Christ, His universal truths of morality and civility.

Too many “idle” Christians exist in this country – this is what Jesus was referring to when he said:

Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers! (Matthew 7:22-23)

Standing on the sidelines and claiming belief in Christ is simply not right; it doesn’t do justice to what Jesus has done for your eternal soul.  Sure, accepting Jesus as Christ is the first step, but too many people feel that is enough.  Do you believe?  If so, what have you done so far in the name of Christ?  Has the spirit moved you to do good works to glorify His name, or have you blocked it out?  A good place to start is the Bible. 

You may laugh, but it is astounding how many people have not even read the book of their faith.

  2. You are so right. I’m always afraid that reporters will go up to Christians protesting this or that and ask them some basic questions about the Bible or to list the 10 Commandments.

    It isn’t that we have to pass a massive theology test to get into Heaven – consider the criminal on the cross! But if Christians aren’t getting into the Word on a regular basis then something is horribly wrong.
