  1. Thanks for these distinctions, i am really blessed. Am in bible school doing an assignment on this, and this information shared has really gone a long way in helping me. God bless you Sir, and may he increase the level of wisdom over your life.

  2. Not sure about 2 half our problems as Christians is caused by Church ideas regardless that they may or may not agree with the BIBLE. Keith green said it is not going to church that makes you a Christian same as sitting in Mcdonalds doesn’t make you a Hamburger

  3. Just that the people today many do not even know this diffreces thanks so much it has help my zeal of the God kingdom .

  4. Believers hunger to receive blessings and be considered to be covered and excused by love. Christian hunger for living out to be a blessing to God first, then others, wanting to carry out His will. If anything hinders that to be purified from it, no blanket or excuse.

  5. “The popular opinion of the Christian life-style is labeled (in this reality) absurd, abnormal, deviant and delusional. It has been seen that way for centuries. In consideration, imagine yourself in Pilate’s palace, hearing Jesus’ response to his questions. Most people would conclude, as he did, that Jesus was a harmless nut.”
