"Strong Christians"

What a weird label. The whole premise of being a Christian is realizing that we are sinful, imperfect, weak people who need a Savior...a Savior who is perfect, so unlike us. How could that be considered 'strong' at all? Christianity is not about being strong, it's about knowing that we are weak! We are not strong. Jesus is strong.

Stop calling me a "Strong Christian". You are missing the whole point!

If you go through life, thinking that people are "Strong Christians", you will be disappointed with them. We are just like you, only we love Jesus and desire to please Him. And don't forget that we have a great hope for what comes after this life is over...that's a pretty important part.

Be careful with the labels that you give people, even if you consider them to be 'good' labels. They may not reflect the true nature of that person and that person may not even believe themselves to be near as good as the label you give. Why don't you ask them if they think they are a "Strong Christian"?

Why don't you ask me?


"they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!" Mark 4:12

Perceive! Understand! Turn! Be Forgiven! It is better by far!

"He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
