Strictly For Those In The Ministry Of ‘Justice’!

“[That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot. So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him” (Romans 8:7-8, AMP).        Who exactly is a Christian in the times we live in? Is it someone that goes to Church, bears a Christian name, born into a Christian family or speaks ‘christianese’? One may argue, a Christian is one that follows the teachings of Christ; carries the mind of Christ: “Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:]” (Philippians 2:5, AMP). Therein lies the clincher! Having the attitude and character of Jesus Christ! Discussing with a colleague that claims to be a Christian, some time ago, brought this discussion to mind – who truly is a Christian!
