True Christians vs. False Christians

I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
(Rev 3:15-16 ESV)

For a long time, my heart has felt heavy for false Christians. It is my opinion, that the majority of false Christians legitimately believe that they are saved from the wrath to come. What a sad fate it is for a person to believe that he or she is saved, when there is no true salvation for him or her. I would rather a person fully embrace the life of Christ or admit that he or she hates God, than to sit on the fence. In spite of all the claims, there are only two choices in this life: follow Jesus or follow Satan. In the coming days, I plan to take a look at what the letters written by John, say about true Christians and false Christians. The purpose of this study is not so that you can judge the salvation of others, but so that you may judge your own salvation correctly. We must be diligent in making our calling and election sure.

  1. This is a great point. Interestigly, I been thinking about the same issue. There are millions of people calling themselves Christians, but their life does not reflect Christ at all. Christian without Christ reflect the same thinking patern you are studying. Jesus said just because we call and talk in his name might not mean anything. If we don’t do his will and obey him then “i don’t know you” is his answer. Might we take the time to analize our own life to reflect our name in a real way.
