What is salvation
A Christian is said to be a person who is a follower of Jesus Christ. The one who confessed with their mouth is considered to be saved from eternal destruction.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Many people who have recited the Lord’s prayer out loud have proceeded to live their lives as they choose.
When we come to Christ, we are not perfect, but we desire from within ourselves to experience a life that is led by the spirit of God. The Holy Spirit makes a person aware of when a spirit of disobedience is influencing people’s thoughts, by making them sensitive to an action that would lead to sin, which is a means of preventing the error from happening in the first place.
Have you ever personally observed a person who has openly confessed to being a Christian, yet, the attitude that they have towards others is not Christ-like at all. We should get used to observing the fruit of a person’s life before being so quick to receive an individual from the basses of what they say versus what their character defines.
Many Christians who have not discerned evil spirits within their environment concerning people, places, and things have opened themselves, their children, or their family to danger. I remember being around the age of ten years old. There was a guest preacher in town to minister at the local church that my mothers and I belonged. In Those days, the guest preachers would stay at one of the church members’ houses.
To my surprise, my Mother would be next to care for the Guest preacher. The preacher would stay at our home instead of a hotel for a few days leading up to Sunday morning. How the church of old handled business is back in the days is very different in the year 2021. A Male guest should stay at a male’s home, while a woman guest should only be cared for by women.
I guess better ways of finding solutions to problems that could be avoided are figured out after a rape has occurred or molestation of a minor has been reported so many years later. I must repeat myself, that this lets us you that because a person claims to be a man or woman of God with their mouth does not mean that’s what they profess to be is true.
The character of a person should be sought out because people have experienced so much hurt pain in their lives to the point most people who were not helped along the way to deal with these negative experiences will just duplicate what has been done to them no matter how sick or degrading the attack is when the opportunity arises.
