Want to know how to identify a real christian faith.
By its works and its teachings
1 Their teachings are based on the bible...2 Tim 3:16 "all scripture is inspired...for teaching...setting things straight" Their teachings would
not be unprovable dogma
2 They declare the true name of God YWWH/Jehovah as Jesus said in John 17:6 "I have made you name manifest to the men you gave me"
If a denomination declares God's name is God, or God's name is Lord...they are substituting a title for a name
3 God's people show genuine unselfish love for one another John 13:35 "they will know you are my disciples if you have love amongst yourselves"
This does not include man on man love, or "men kept for unatual purposes"
4 True Christians accept Jesus as the means of salvation...thats a no brainer right
5 True worshipers are no part of the world John 18:36 "my kingdom is no part of this world" that means they will not be swayed by current secular
views on idoletry, greed, sex, things spoken of that God hates like at Galatians 5:19-21 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are
fornication, uncleanness, loose conduct, idolatry, practice of spiritism, enmities, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, contentions, divisions, sects,
envies, drunken bouts, revelries, and things like these. As to these things I am forewarning YOU, the same way as I did forewarn YOU, that those who
practice such things will not inherit God’s kingdom.
Granted, individuals are imperfect, but what is the churchs teaching on the se matters
6 Jesus true worshipers will do as he commanded and preach the good news of God's kingdom being mankinds only hope in all the Earth...Matthew 24:14
"This good news of the Kingdome will be preached in all the Earth" Matthew 6:10 "let you will take place, let your Kingdom come, on Earth, as in
Heaven" Matthew 28:19-20 " Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded YOU"
Who do you know that is actively taking part in that command
