Most Americans claim to be Christian, but one can easily tell the majority of Americans and people in general are plain ‘apostate’. You can do nothing to earn your way into Heaven, nor will you make it by being a ‘good’ person. ‘They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.’ Romans 3:12

There may be many that lay claim to this title, probably because th

ey have been to a local church, belonging to a church where the family has always gone or because they think that being American also means being Christian.  Lately, the majority of people believe that being catholic also means being Christian and that’s just not so. With all that said, true Christianity is the only life to live.  Once you’ve tried it, you’ll never stay away long. The power of the Holy Spirit dealing with you is too strong to resist. Unless you continue to turn His invites down; then you could fall into a reprobate condition and that is not good, at all. This means that the ‘Holy Spirit has quit dealing with you and without AHis pulling at your heart, I believe, you cannot be saved..

In Christianity, it is ‘so simple’ to become one, but can seem to be so very hard to live by, while nothing is farther from the truth. But, like our prez has shown, being a Christian takes much more than just lip service. And there are laws that come from our most high God, that cannot be taken lightly and can prove to be detrimental to your health, here and in the life to come; laws such as marriage being meant to be between ONE man and ONE woman, is a prime example!!. One cannot please God with any other combination. One has got to consider the penalties for going against God and His laws, penalties that must be  seriously considered. Though we must go by His commandments, they do not save us. These are not laws that we or anyone can live with and continue to do our own thing. A person may try and follow these commandments without accepting the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Again, we’re not to try and ‘work’ our way in or even to try any other way than what’s expressed in His holy Word, the Bible. A person may think he can  keep his mortal soul this way, or by following some rituals, and bowing to Idol statues; if so, then he/ she has broken God’s commandments already. And only God can forgive these transgressions, no matter what a local priest may say, or even what the pope himself has written in his holy book.

This subject may need to be expounded upon later to explain, using God’s Word’ how just being a good person and claiming to be ‘Christian’ just isn’t enough. The following may help in some small way, being I’ve only used a small part of the scriptures relevant to our accepting God’s gift of salvation. Please respond with comments if you do not understand why you may not be a Christian, or if you just want to add something.

12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.   Proverbs 14

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Since He died for u, why not live for him?

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 John 4
