The 'illusive Christian'
often comes to the surface, for example when a parent's children are abused
by a church official. Most of these people having nothing more than an
association with the place called church - and they then question
if they should still be Christian? Can you imagine this?
Well, it is true. These people were never true Christians, perhaps not
even believers, but mere church members, like members of a sect: for these
can then cut off the sect and proceed with life, as a sect is but
a bunch of people with some general purpose. But church, 'The
Church' is the gathering place of those who surrender their lives to Christ.
So when members from Satan's
house in the gathering place (as is the church building/organization) abuse
you, you just cut it off and leave. But how can you leave the church of
Christ if you've surrendered to Christ? No, they've never surrendered to
Christ but to their church, as do sectist to their sects. Especially
when the priest is caught, they would praise the Lord to have exposed him,
for surely he does tries our patience with these demons. They would
not despair but thank God and become more devout to him and love him and
pray with even more love to him. If you are one of these, then re-examine
your position for, surely, you are not yet a Christian. And if you
believe to be baptized, open your eyes and read: for you were never cleansed
off your sins, but merely took a dip in the water, because you had no sound
understanding of the baptism - but the bright side of
the matter is that you now can still repent and truly baptize.
MAT 22: 14 "For
many are called but few are chosen" - Jesus of Nazareth.
Know ye therefore that there
are three steps to becoming a Christian:
a) Reading the Gospel
believing it (you now are a believer)
repentance and repenting (you feel regret for your past
sins and disposing of everything God disapproves of and embrasing all
that God approves of)
(you surrender to Christ, washing away your past sins to never sin
again (consciously violate against the Gospel's teachings)
Do not mistake: the baptism
is an agreement between you and God, whereby you agree to follow the doctrine
of Jesus and the 12 commandments. Any transgression you henceforth commit
must be accidental; not premeditated sins like fornication or murder or
orchestrated deceit - for then you receive
