Are You A Christian? posted by John Sorensen on Aug 05, 2015
Are you a Christian? Well most people in America would still answer, “Yes!” But that’s the wrong question to ask.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Most everyone assumes that, because many people in America have a family history of church going, that they’re Christians. A better question to ask is this: Suppose God were to ask you why should I let you into My Heaven, what reason would you give Him? You know, there’s really only a couple of answers someone can give. Either they’re trusting in what Jesus Christ did by dying on the cross to pay the penalty for their sins, or, they’re trusting in their own “good works,” and will say something like, “I’m a good person, I’ve lived a good life, I’m doing the best that I can.”
So remember, “Are you a Christian?” is at the top of the list of questions NOT to ask when trying to discern where people are spiritually. Instead, ask them if you can tell them why you’re glad you know you have eternal life and then share your testimony of what God has done in your life. Need help writing your testimony? We can help.
