I can only speak for myself, but my own feelings are that as a Christian, if I were to lead a double life, I'd either have to change my view of God or change my life or deal with feeling perpetually guilty.
It's kinda funny really. I goto church begging for forgiveness and strength and sometimes barely make it out of the parking lot and my head is already traveling towards negative thoughts, etc... I guess that makes me the worse kind of christian, huh? (Human)
I don't have a double life you know YOLO and all that. God sees all and what you do is your own fault not his.
I don't have a double life, so I don't feel bad.
Everybody sins. So I guess all Christians are in a way. I feel like i don't have as much of a double life as some people. I make an effort at least. But then again, when Jesus talked about the Pharisee that thanked God he wasn't like sinful people and the tax collector who felt so humbled before God that he couldn't even look up to the sky.
It was the tax collector who was justified before God. So maybe I need to be aware of that.
Right, but nobody is perfect.
Actually I have found on the internet that according to a study 8 out 10 unmarried Evangelical Christians have had premarital sex. If they don't repent from that and continue to do that, I would call that leading a double life. All I meant was that everybody will sin at some point, not that they should stop trying not to.
That is unmarried Evangelical Christians in there 20's and 30's
I think God's focus is on repentence rather than guilt however.
Right, a lot of Christians barely read their Bible. I only posted that study as an example.
