There is a concept out there that I believe will damn millions to an eternal burning hell. The concept is that it is possible to “live” the Christian life. This is like saying to a living human that they should live the human life.
A person who simply “lives” the Christian life will spend an eternity in hell. A person who has the life of the Christ in them is living a Christian life regardless of their behavior good or bad.
Picture a cat walking into a room. You pick up a stick and throw it, the cat fetches the stick and brings it back to you. When someone approaches the front door the cat barks. This particular cat, it is observed, continues to behave in many other ways like a dog.
Although the cat behaves like a dog, it is NOT a dog. No matter how it behaves it is and will always be a cat. It is the same with a Christian versus a non-Christian. A non-Christian can go about doing things that a Christian might do, but doing those things will never make that person a Christian. Contrariwise if a Christian goes around doing things that are not “Christ like” it does not make them not a Christian any more than a human who decides to walk on all fours is now a bear or that walks around flapping her arms a turkey.
Christians have a NEW life. This is what Christ called being “born again”.
As a healthy cat meows, and as a healthy dog barks, so a healthy Christian will do things that Christians do. Don’t mistake your personal “Christian” activity as proof of your having the nature of a Christian. Maybe you are simply a poser.
