Are You a Christian?

English – Spanish

The following indicators deceive many into thinking they are Christians. If this is what’s happening with you, then you’ll need to be disabused of your delusion before you can receive the Lord Jesus Christ. This begins with hearing the truth:

If you say you were born and raised a Christian, you’ve never been a Christian.

If you wonder how sinners can do the ugly things they do, you’ve never been a Christian.

If you think you’ve never done anything bad, you’ve never been a Christian.

If you’ve never experienced a dramatic change from evil to good in your life, you’ve never been a Christian.

If you think you’re Christian because you’ve been raised in a Christian home, you’ve never been a Christian.

If you are an ordained minister, priest or some form of clergy (no matter how high), it’s highly likely you’ve never been a Christian.

If you think your clerical clothing and paraphernalia indicate you are a Christian, you’ve never been a Christian.

If you think you are a Christian because you follow a particular human leader and adhere to a set of doctrines, you’ve never been a Christian.

If you disagree with this list, you’ve never been a Christian.

Now consider this, false professors of Christ: If you haven’t been a Christian, you’ve yet to taste freedom from sin and true life as the Lord intends for those for whom He laid down His life. You have much to look forward to when you repent and come through the narrow gate that leads to life. Joy only comes with victory and victory comes only when you die.

“And He said to all, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever will save his life shall lose it, but whoever will lose his life for My sake, he shall save it” (Luke 9:23-24 MKJV).
