Love one another as I have loved you,by this will men know that you are my disciples.THAT is what jesus said ,there are many others but this one may work best for me.

I can tell instantly who truly loves Jesus Christ and someone who doesn't. By their fruits ye shall know them. I watch the members of various churches. Those who turn the air blue in profanity, condemn others, commit adultery, abuse those around them, hate others who were not in their church, put greed and envy above the Savior and indulge in pleasures of the flesh are no more christian than muslims are. They may have professed Jesus christ, but their actions told everyone around them they follow satan.

It shows through the fruits. I show others scriptures & remember to keep the love. I am not perfect, the bible sohws my errors,I correct them & help others, but I "prove" myself to noone except to God.

If the focus is to prove your own christianity then your focus is self-centered. We need prove nothing. We are to obey God, and allow Him to direct all we do, to dwell in us, work through us...the focus is HIM...proof will be a natural byproduct we do not have to strive for. Keep your eyes on Jesus.

Loree ... What you say is incomplete.
God did these things through us
Otherwise, why would Jesus have told us to do these things?
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/18/06

I don't think you have to do anything to show others that you are a Christian. If you walk with the Lord daily, it will show...not by your being perfect, but by your responses to the everyday difficulties of life.

God did not feed the hungry, nor tended to the sick, not drove the neighbor around, nor paid your debts, nor planted the seed, nor lead a friend to salvation - people do. Read Matthew 25. God gave YOU the ability and the resources to accomplish these things. You are the light of the world and bring glory to God for doing these things. You bring glory by the things you do and the things you say. Thats why you give thanks for everything you do.

Rebecca D - I was not talking about isolation. I was talking about living my life separate from the world -- "Come out from among them and be separate". If I were living in isolation, then I could not let my light shine
---Helen_5378 on 7/17/06

-You did not feed the hungry, God did.
-You did not tend to the sick, God did.
-You did not drive the elderly next-door neighbor to his/her doctor appointment, God did.
-You did not pay your debts, God did.
-You did not plant the seed, God did.
-You did not lead a friend to salvation, God did.

If the glory belongs to God, how do we PROVE our Christianity?
---Loree on 7/17/06

Helen I was referring to what you said by living your life apart from others, many do that. that doesn't mean your a christian, that just means you isolate yourself.
---Rebecca_D on 7/17/06

Lingling, we are told not to hide our light under a bushel. We are to be a light to the world so that they do not stay in darkness. We do this mainly in 2 ways, witnessing directly and the way that we live our lives. It has nothing to do with our personal security - that is already taken care of.
---M.P. on 7/15/06

What's your point for showing to people that you are a Christian? Would you get insecure if you are not recognized as Christian?
---Lingling on 7/15/06

For instance, if you believe that Sunday trading is wrong and a friend asks you to help with her shopping on a Sunday, you could say "I'll be in church on Sunday but will help any other day" (offering something that she has run out of from your own cupboards in the meantime). Little things often speak volumes and often prompt questions that can lead to opportunities to witness with no pushing on your part.
---M.P. on 7/15/06

Although I don't think this actually 'proves' that we are Christians, I think that being consistent is noticed by non-Christians. If we have standards about anything (and these vary from person to person) we should never compromise these standards just because a non-Christian is visiting us or has asked us to help them in some way. We should always be ready to say "well I can't actually do that but I will help in this 'other' way" etc.

Madison 1101 - I do know for myself that Charmed is evil. Ever since I got saved and baptised in the Holy Spirit shortly after, my eyes just cannot stand to look on evil. So with me the instant my eyes see something that is evil it has to go off - I just cannot look on it. So it is not a matter of information for me it is a matter of instant discernment.
---Helen_5378 on 7/14/06

Rebecca D - ("I never said that unsaved people don't watch this show") -- "Helen, many do that and are not christians". You did say it Rebecca.

Rebecca D - What you have said about me is a lie ("you are just going by what Madison said about the show being evil. Hearsay is what you heard"). I have had my own experience with Charmed and my eyes cannot look on it.
---Helen_5378 on 7/14/06

I want non christians to see that there's a difference in the way I respond, or handle things. There are times I turn down invitations because I know I will be uncomfortable going certain places, and the person gets upset, saying things like you did'nt come last time, it's my birthday, or anniversary etc.
I say nothing has changed here:)
I try to walk in love.

Rebecca D - ("Now I would be if I were to engage in this witchcraft") -- You are willingly participating in this witchcraft simply by choosing to watch it. You are the one who picks up the remote and turns the television on and then chooses to sit there and watch it. You have a choice and you are choosing evil over good.
---Helen_5378 on 7/14/06

Rebecca D - I am a fully grown woman with all my faculties and I do not need to listen to what Madison or anyone else says to make up my mind. I know it is evil because I am able to discern. Your fault is in claiming Christianity and condoning witchcraft at the same time -- the two do not mix and never will. It is the offense of you proclaiming that it is ok that is a sin against me. And I might add your language is getting a little off course.

Helen et al: Do not take my word for it concerning the TV show "Charmed." Google "charmed, witchcraft, tv" and read the first hit. It gives synopsis of all of the episodes of the show. Read for yourselves. It is evil, pure and simple.
---Madison1101 on 7/14/06

Helen; You are just going by what Madsion said about the show being evil. Hearsay, is what you heard. How in God's name am I sinning Helen? Now I would be if I were to engage in this witchcraft, but I don't. I never said that unsaved people don't watch this show, where did you get that idea? So you are saying that you show others that your a christian by critizing on others? christians don't do that, hyprocrites do. If I were sinning the spirit in me would let me know Helen.
---Rebecca_D on 7/14/06

I don't really worry about 'proving' myself to people, just to God.
---sue on 7/14/06

I'm not sure that we can absolutely 'prove' to others that we are Christians. Being a Christian is a relationship with our Saviour, something that we did not understand before we were saved and others who are not saved do not understand yet. All the 'things' that we do to 'prove' our salvation are just the works that should follow salvation but we must bear in mind that these prove nothing because many non-Christians do these things also.

My focus is not on showing others that I am a Christian, for that would be works, but rather to show Chrisat,,,I pray that Christ might be revealed in me, be the light within.
---Christina on 7/13/06

Rebecca D - That is a big baloney that many unsaved people do not watch witchcraft. Maybe they don't, but certainly not in the sense that a born-again Christian would not watch it. A born-again Christian cannot look on evil.
---Helen_5378 on 7/13/06

Rebecca D - You are openly and blatantly sinning and you don't care who knows about it. It is an offense to me.
---Helen_5378 on 7/13/06

Helen, many do that, and are not christians. So how do you prove to others that you are a christian, and don't bark up my tree, for I done nothing to you sissy.

I live my life set apart from the world, and that includes not watching witchcraft on TV. You asked!
---Helen_5378 on 7/12/06

I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Do all these without grumbling and without asking for anything in return. Genuine love is serving others and attending to the needs of others including strangers, the homeless and the poor.
---Steve on 7/12/06

Thank you two for answering my question, I just wanted to know how others are showing people that they are Christians. I try to (as hard as it is) do onto others as I would have done unto me. And forgive your enemies and love them regardless of what they say or do to you. I figured more people would have responded to this.
