Why do people assume that anyone who calls themself a christian is?
a) recognized your depraved state of sin
b) recognized Jesus' work on the cross: taking the punishment for the sin we deserve
c) accepted that and live to glorify God and not ourselves.
there's a lot of ppl living to glorify themselves these days, no?
i am by no means trying to be the arbiter of all christianity. these are biblical values. but if you think that you can be a christian without living out the gospel and living for God only, how can you claim to be a christian? i only put those to clear up some misconcepetions on the definition. but it is unfair for you to say that i cannot put them. it's like you stating the bill of rights in your own words and me telling you that you have no right to be the "arbiter of american values". i'm simply reporting them.
