Not Many True ChristiansA lot of people claim to be Christians in America. Christianity has serious meaning to it. A person is not a Christian because they go to church. Many preachers are teaching people to just go to church. A church is just a sanctuary building but the Christians are the body of Christ. Going to church does not make you a Christian no less than a man that swims in the water makes him a fish. A person must be connected to the body of Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit of God. Once a person is connected, they will affect the outcome of what is going on in the earth. Church should be as a base or foundation for Christians. A church is not called only to sing, dance and talk about Jesus. A church is also called to be a witness. When someone chose to be apart of a church, they chose to be apart of a living organism. A church is not a dead religious function that a person attends on Sundays. When Sundays are over, the people that suppose to be true Christians continue to drink, curse, commit fortification, lie etc.
Doing those things does not make a Christian any different from the world. The church is design by the word of God to produce kind after its own kind. In other words, the church should be helping people to become like Jesus. A Christian has to consider their self a child of God. God could not have an offspring that does not become like him. Christians should be as a brother or sister to God’s son Jesus. The bible says (in the book of Acts Chapter13) that people were first called Christians at Antioch (city). They were not called Christians because they joined a religion, gospel ministry, nor a church. They were called Christians at Antioch because the people that did not know Jesus had seen the witnesses of Jesus and said “look they are acting like that Jesus, they are talking like that Jesus they are walking like that Jesus” (The book of Acts). They had the characteristics of Jesus Christ, so they were called Christians. Furthermore, to be called a Christian in the past was not a word of praise or a complement. To be a Christian was a strange doctrine in the bible days.
Taking on the characteristic of Jesus is not the mind set of most Christians today. America is established as a Godly Nation (In God We Trust).
