Marcus the "Drunken Christian"

Recently I was questioned by a family member for using the term "Professing Christian" in referring to some of the people I meet at the college and on the street while preaching the gospel. This audio segment from Wretched Radio should clear things up a bit.

The idea of "Carnal Christianity" is nothing new. The danger is that it has the potential for lulling someone into false assurance based on a "decision for Christ" they made sometime in their past, or an aisle they walked down at church. They are putting faith in a decision.

Here are just a couple, but powerful verses to ponder considering genuine salvation:

Spiritual Fruit

"Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit." (Matthew 12:33)


"The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us." (1 John 3:24)
