Day 243- Born Again Police
Most Americans claim to be Christian. The numbers decline a bit when you ask if they have been born again. However, if you ask someone what it means to be born again, the truth comes out. I did this today and began to wonder if this guy thought that I was the salvation police. If he only knew how many people that I talk to who confess with their mouth and deny Him by their lifestyle. If he only knew how many people today know the language of a Christian. These are some of the thoughts that enter my brain as I listen to see if what people say lines up with Scripture. I am not the judge, but I would hate to give someone a false sense of assurance. Most people cannot answer what it means to be born again, but today was different. This man said, " I am a new creation in Christ. He has delivered me from my previous life of sin." That sounds Biblical.
