Can You Claim To Be A Christian
If you claim to be born-again, yet don't walk in obedience to Christ, don't attend church, don't treat wife and child with kindness and patience, never talk of God - then what exactly does that make you in God's eyes?

someone who is claiming to be a child of light yet walking in darkness is a LIAR..fooling his own self.

Someone astray for whom He goes seeking that He may bring him back on His shoulders, saying to all, Rejoice with Me for I have found that which is lost.

The Bible states that by their fruit you will know them. If you don't see any fruit it could mean this person never has acknowledged Christ as Savoir, only as God, which is not correct for salvation. It could also mean he is just ignorant of what he is suppose to do as a Christian. If this is true, maybe someone ought to show him. "Show", not just tell.)

1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, WE LIE, and do not the truth:

I recently decided not to marry because I didn't see the fruits of the HS in my mate. He wears the clothes of a christian, he reads the bible, talks the talk, know's the right things to say, but actions will reveal the heart every time. When you Love Christ, you have a desire to be like him, and old desires, habits, life, falls away.

I have a question to your question, do you want to be this way? if not,repent and do God's way=> Bible(use it for your guide and be what he would have you to be, if you turned your life at one time over to him)you have to fight the sinful nature you have. Jesus is worth it.

Brother Jim, a born again believer will be indentified by his fruits. If you look at his or hers actions you will know if Christ lives in the person. Many proclaim to be Christian but in their heart they never had true faith in Christ. They will continue to do what they have always done. When someone loves the Lord he or she will want to know more about God and the Spirit will convict them of their actions and they will change. Otherwise they are not inlove and will not change.

1st, carnal is being in the flesh, Rom 7:14, 8:6.
For Born again. Many claim to be born again, but their actions prove otherwise. At the same time, there are those who were truelly born again, but are lost in to growing any more due not knowing how to study and learn properly. Many are in for a rude awaking.

A backslider - but it is we who move away from God, not He who moves from us. He will never let us go.

Does anyone know what the world "Carnal" means?
---Barbara67 on 8/27/05|
A deceived person. Lost but not without hope. Someone who does not know the whole truth, Jesus or God's love.

None of his. One can't live like hell and say you are a chrisitan. Chose ye this day, whom ye shall serve.

When we seperate from church we become spiritually dead. The Holy Spirit prepares us for another journey that will be a better church. If we allow personality conflicts, problems, worship protocal interfere, we submit to the enemy, forgetting to take it to the Lord in prayer. The old hymn says it best,"What a friend we have in Jesus..take it to the Lord in prayer,... we weak and heavyladen,is there trouble everywhere? We must never be discouraged take it to the Lord in prayer." +corin3666

A carnal Christian not under the control of the Holy Spirit. You can be a Christian who does not walk in the Spirit, but in the flesh. Choose who you will serve, God or Satan.

sounds like you are weak in spirit. so do something about it. start now Repent and turn around.praise him ,then, read his word. let him talk to you in the word, your answer is in the word, so read it and watch him reveal it to you

If you are a real born again believer and have strayed, God will bring you back to the fold somehow, someway. He may have to do harsh things but He will bring you back.
