It’s been bothering me lately that if you randomly happen upon my blog you might not know I’m a Christian and that’s just wrong. So…
I AM A CHRISTIAN. I LOVE JESUS AND BELIEVE HE CAME TO WASH MY SINS AWAY.
We don’t go to church…long story there…but I don’t believe I have to go to church to be a Christian and I don’t believe that everyone that goes to church is a Christian. I do think that the people you surround yourself with (whether in person or online) help or hinder your relationships, including the one you have with Jesus. I want my relationship to show, so that I can help others come to know Jesus.
The Message: “Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other. Don’t be impressed with charisma; look for character. Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say. A genuine leader will never exploit your emotions or your pocketbook. These diseased trees with their bad apples are going to be chopped down and burned.”
NIV: “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.”
