Here is a great blog post.. I love the 4 points made. Point 4 is usually the most deceptive. MANY Christians out there 'say' with their lips, "Lord, Lord.."... but watch closely for the fruit.. Look for the evidence. Peer through the flesh's giddy emotions and watch for the facts. You shall know the tree by its fruit. Fruit = Their actions. Do their actions line up with what they say? That's how you'll know if you have found a true Christian vs. a worldly/carnal/secular Christian. I hate to say it, but the latter seems to be the norm out there. Be careful beloved... be wise as serpents.. Your enemy is stalking you, seeking opportunity to pounce by using yourself against yourself.
#4) Do they reflect the true biblical love of God, not just hearers of the Word but doers also.
Very true thanks for the info.
This is so true! I was fooled by a man who I later found out his father was a minister. He had tons of bibles in his home and attended church every week, but in reality he wasn't who he pretended to be. I turned completely to the Lord and I now realize that this man was a life lesson for me so I can spot a wolf in sheep's clothing. I know in God's time he will bring a good Christian man to me and in the meantime, my God is my world! I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for him.
I like all the points number one is the start number two is a must.number three takes a lot of wisdom.Number 4 love takes action.
it seems that i came to the right place just now. This first post speak right to me. Because I once again just threw myself to someone who was not a righteous person to begin with and held on to him for 3 months just to be deceived regularly everyday, I ran here to find some solace. This morning, is just 1 of many wknd morning spent ruminating about what to do, letting go completely , just to change my mind again once the week starts. This time today, I say I am done, wipe the slate clean, delete, block him and throw away the key once and for all. Having read this and finding keep the faith again, i will not be alone through the weaning process. i said this because my thoughts goes from positive "yes i am worthy" to negative and self-destructive "no i was just born with an aura that repulse everyone and any kind of relationships (even friendships) out of my life. This very first post just hit the nail on the head for me...it fits with my situation perfectly. As a students I keep founding myself waiting for the whole span of time i am committed to school, from an interval of 5 years, then 2 yrs, then 4 yrs. But with each lil break in between when i open up again, i am simply rejected and deceived. I will just quiet my soul here with the help of this community!!! this is a perfect place for me. thanks
