"Awake [from your drunken stupor and return] to sober sense and your right minds, and sin no more. For some of you have not the knowledge of God [you are utterly and willfully and disgracefully ignorant, and continue to be so, lacking the sense of God's presence and all true knowledge of Him]. I say this to your shame."
(1 Corinthians 15:34; Amplified).
What are we to make of that? I couldn't help but wonder how many of us today perhaps also need to heed the same advice? This in turn begged the question, Have some of us been living a lie when it comes to our faith professions? Ouch! Thankfully God alone will be the judge of that! Still, I confess that I did ask the question.
As I was musing over that, I was suddenly reminded me of this verse: "... even now many anti-christs have come" (1 John 2:18; NIV). Again, what are we to make of that?
- Do these two verses even logically fit together?
- Can a person be a Christian and be an anti-christ at the same time?
- Why or why not?
Drop me a comment. I'd love to hear your take on this. Peace.
