This study is about what qualifies one to be called a Christian.
ANYONE SAVED BY CHRIST'S BLOOD IS A CHRISTIAN.
ANYONE WHO DOES THESE THINGS BECOMES A CHRISTIAN.
ANYONE WHO DOES THESE THINGS REMAINS A CHRISTIAN.
We do not say, “WE ARE THE ONLY CHRISTIANS”. However we do say, “WE ARE CHRISTIANS ONLY”.
The names of all Christians are written into the Book of Life (Revelation 20:15, Philippians 4:3). That book does not exist on earth.
Church registers and directories written on earth may tell us when people were born, married, and buried.
They may tell us who are members of this church or that. But they are not the book of life. In order to find out who are true Christians, we may just as well consult the telephone directory as one of these books.
Only the word of God can tell us the marks of a true Christian.
