Are you really a Christian?
John, Pat and Chris ask the question; are you really a Christian? They continue to share that in the Message bible Romans 2:28 says “It’s the mark of God on your heart, not of a knife on your skin that makes a Jew. They continue to say that just because someone calls themselves a Christian doesn’t mean they are one. Many people today identify themselves as being a Christian. In fact, Gallup Polls says that 77% of Americans identify themselves as being a Christian. If that was true that would mean that based upon that percentage there would be 245 million Christians living in the United States and if that was the case America would not be in the place that it is today. So this begs the question; what is a Christian. They continue to discuss some ideas and circumstances as they answer this question. They encourage us to follow what the Bible teaches and that is to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith; to perform a self –examination, leading to an investigation which produces an evaluation. They remind us that it is better to examine ourselves while we still can and that it is not too late.
