As a Christian have you experienced being interrogated , shunned or scolded by another Christian in the internet? or have we done the same thing to another Christian ?
Perhaps if you experienced being on the defensive side or under questioning, you know it is not easy. If you are the questioner , did you ask who gave you the right to question another Christian ?
Basically who is a Christian ? A simple definition is one who is identified with Christ or Jesus Christ.Jesus Christ is his or her Lord and Savior.
This could be a long blog but let us ask where do true Christians came from ? According to the Holy Bible, mankind came from Adam and Eve, the first man and woman created by God. But Adam and Eve disobeyed God regarding not eating the forbidden fruit. In short man sinned and got separated from God. But God instituted ways to gain man back leading to the sending of His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for man's sin.
So again before we became Christians we were sinners, separated from God, or heathen or pagans.We only became Christians because God chose to save us or from man's view, we chose Jesus Christ to be our Lord and Savior.
In our modern times, Christians formed different denominations like Catholics, Orthodox, and Protestants and call ourselves by different names and sad to say in one way or another we sometimes argue, debate or just avoid talking to each other.
Without the true Jesus Christ, there will be no true Christians.No Christian earned his or her way to be Christian, it is a gift. How about those Christians who died for their faith or became martyrs ? It is a gift too I read.
We are nothing without Christ , we owe everything to Jesus Christ.He deserves our praise and thanks.
Caution: Shall we trust everyone who claim to be Christian ? I believe the Holy Spirit will tell us or warn us. (maybe this is for another blog).
