Is Your Christianity a Sham?

The Recovering Legalist

Adorable Sin

It may come as a shock to some, but many who claim to be Christians are not, actually. It is obvious because of their unrepentant love of sin.

For example, I know a person who willfully admits his failures and flaws (which is a good thing), but happily continues to do the very things he knows are wrong. He says, “I know I have a problem with (blank), but I know I’ll never change, so I’ll just have to keep asking for forgiveness.” In reality, the problem is that he loves his sin, and therefore refuses to truly repent and “turn from his wicked ways.” His particular sin is his claim to fame, his identity.

VerseD: Revelation 4:11

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”
Revelation 4:11, ESV

[14] I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.”

Another’s Spouse

How many times have we heard about a man or a woman pursuing a married person saying “We are so in love, and he/she is going to leave his/her wife/husband”? Most of the time, we later hear that, no, they did not leave their spouses. The adulterous spouse received gifts and favors, and now those gifts and the fruit of the jilted lovers’ labors are…

VerseD: John 16:33

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33, ESV

Christ proved through His resurrection that nothing can stop Him.

This world may beat us down, but through Christ we shall arise on the New Earth in glory. This hope gives us the courage to face whatever comes our way.

VerseD: Matthew 5:4

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
Matthew 5:4, ESV

Foremost, we mourn our sin and rebellion against God, then we will be blessed with the comfort of our Savior.

VerseD: John 10:11

I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
John 10:11, ESV

Jesus offered Himself to rescue us from condemnation for sin.

Likewise, we should be willing to lay down our lives to share the Gospel, love on others, and bring many to faith in Christ.
