Why, my sisters in Christ, are we arguing amongst ourselves over who's right and who's wrong? Is that how Christ wants his people to act? Fighting against each other over small details that mean nothing?
Does my salvation rely on the fact that I love and accept the Lord Jesus Christ and I accept the blood he shed on the cross as atonement for my sins?
Or does it rely on weather or not I believe in the bible exactly word for word?
Does it rely on sinless nature? Or accepting that sin is a way of life in all human nature, and accepting Christ's salvation for those sins?
I have been told, more than once, that I'm not really a Christian - that I can't possibly be b/c of my "unorthodox" beliefs. But I ask, what defines a Christian?
I love Jesus. I worship Him every day of my life. I hold tightly to His hand and His mercy and His grace on a daily basis. I relinquish myself fully to Him.
I feel that I need to

In order to have "salvation," Romans 10:9 says, "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. The Bible says in Phil 2:12.....to "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Sinless nature?...Romans 3:23 says "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" But this is where grace comes in at. I personally do not see why you would not be a Christian. It is not for others to judge you. This is something between you and God. Don't let others tell you that you are not.
Bonn777, I agree completely!
