There is no such thing as a carnal Christian.
Most of our Christianity comes from songwriters not the Bible.
The Bible never teaches be a genuine Christian and live in continuous carnality and wickedness and sin all the days of their lives.
What the Bible teaches that the genuine Christian has been given a new nature . A genuine Christian has a Father who loves them, disciplines and watches over them, and cares for them.
The youth, they come to youth group, they do all the stuff but in their hearts there is wickedness. There is no difference, there is no light. Everything the world does, they do and it's appropriate it's okay. My friend, that's not Christianity. They're not in danger of losing their reward, they're in danger of hell. They know not GOD.
What do we teach? The last time you heard someone say there's not only a narrow gate into heaven but a narrow way. Jesus indicates that one of the principal signs of being a genuine Christian is you walk in the narrow way
Scripture teaches examine yourselves, test yourselves in the light of Scriptures and see if you're in the faith because as Christians will be different.
Christians do sin. If any man does not acknowledge his sin, he knows not God., he's not walking in the light.
If you are genuinely a child of God, you will will walk in the way of righteousness as a style of life, And if you step off that path of righteousness, the Father will come for you, He would discipline you. He would put you back on that path. But if you profess to have gone through the narrow gate and yet you live in the broad way just like all the other people in your high school who are carnal and wicked . The Bible wants you to know that you should be terribly terribly afraid to know not God. I fear for men telling other men that they are saved. You don't tell men they are saved, you tell them how to be
What we have forgotten to believe is that salvation is a supernatural work of God. And those who are genuinely converted, regenerated by the power of the Holy Spirit is going to be a new creature.
The Bible says that if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature
Beware of the false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Know them by the fruits.
The person who loves you most. Is the person who tells you the truth.
You know you are saved because your life is in the process of being changed and your style of life is one of walking in the path of God's truth and when you step off that path of disobedience as we all do, God comes for you and put you back on the path.
One of the greatest evidence is that you have been truly been born again is that God will not let you talk as your flesh might want you to talk, God will not let you dress as a sensual world and the sensual church allows you to dress, God will not allow you to act like the world, smell like the world, speak like the world, listen to the things that the world listens to. God will make a difference in your life.
Can you love sin and relish it? Then you know not God.
How many people have an encounter with Jesus and yet they have been permanently changed? How many times do you rededicate your life over and over again.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. You will know by the path they walk in.. Jesus is talking about the judgment of the almighty God.
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."
Are you building your marriage on the Word of God?
Are you raising your children on the Word of God?
Are you doing your finances on the Word of God?
Are you living separating yourself from the things of this world?
THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE SAVED, BUT THEY ARE NOT.
RADICAL CHRISTIANS ARE NOT PEOPLE WHO WEAR CHRISTIAN T SHIRTS, RADICAL CHRISTIANS ARE THOSE WHO BEAR THE HOLY SPIRIT, RADICAL CHRISTIANS ARE THOSE WHO REVERENCE AND HONOR THEIR PARENTS EVEN IF THEY FEEL THAT THEIR PARENTS ARE WRONG, RADICAL CHRISTIANS ARE THOSE WHO DO NOT DRESS UP SENSUALLY IN ORDER TO SHOW OFF THEIR BODIES.
If your clothing is a frame for your face, God is pleased with your clothing. If your clothing is a frame for your body essentially, God hates what you're doing.
Everybody wants to talk about a profit not talking about Christianity.
