OK, I know by the posts some of you make that you are committed Christians.
Who among you will affirm this?

God Bless you.

2 Thess1:11 Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, 12 that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Christian here.

Romans 8:1-2) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

and for those who have not received Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior, I prey you do. Christ is real, Heaven is real and Hell is real. Jesus Died for our sins, sin which we were all born into.

Romans 10:9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

John 3:16) For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For those who would argue this point, I did not post it to debate but only to share the truth

Same here. Saved by Grace. I didnt deserve it, I didnt want it, I did nothing to cause it. It was all Gods chosing and I thank Him daily for it.

By God's Grace I'm a Christian.

Mat 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven

Walking in grace...

I still don't feel like I deserve His grace. I utterly fail on so many occasions. Blessed be His name.

That's the amazing thing about it.

We don't and can't deserve it. It's humbling to consider the contrast between justice (what we deserve) and grace (the mercy He gives us).

Deserve has nothing to do with it. Many churches will try to teach you that you did something to deserve it, but its all of grace.

"I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, one in Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation, he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen."

Galatians 2:20


I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Sadly, I fufill all prerequisites to being a born again Christian except for "that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you...". To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever known me for a day and said "there's a Christian". I sin enough so repeatedly and publicly, that no stranger could ever "know me by my fruits". The best I get is "he's a swell guy and a patriot". Not bad, but below the mark.
