Misconceptions about Christianity.

Misconceptions about Christianity.

I am a Christian because my name originates from the bible.
The name we bear doesn't make us a Christian, Our repentance from our sinful ways, acceptance of Jesus Christ and followership of His will is what make us His son. There are several people with good names in the bible that have nothing to reckoned  with.

I am a Christian because I go to church.
The Church is not a qualification for our name to be written in the book of life. The church is not a building, in fact we people are the church. We are advice to meet regularly so that we can grow in spirit together as well as get help when we need it. The church is not a qualification of our name being written in the book of life, it is our personal encounter with Christ Jesus that matters.
Hebrews 10:25 (NLT)
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.

I am a Christian because I wear  something that show Jesus Christ anywhere I am going.
What we wear does not really portray who we are. Because I wear an expensive  shoe does not make me a rich man. Because I live in a mansion does not say I don't owe people money . What we wear could be an expression of our love for Christ Jesus or even as a means or evangelizing the gospel of Jesus Christ, but not a qualification of being a follower of Jesus Christ.

I am a Christian because my parents are.
You need your own story.
You need you own personal encounter with Christ Jesus, this is what makes you a Child of God...Your personal encounter.
Your parent can  give birth to you in the church.
Your parent can  give you biblical names.
Your parent can make you go to church by force.
Your parent can  teach you the bible,
but they cannot save fact their salvation cannot save you.
Your salvation is must be you and your God.
Romans 10:9 (NLT)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

I am a Christian because I put the bible under my pillow while sleeping.
The bible is not meant to be a pillow.
The bible contains all we need  (for more on these  read @
We have to read and meditate in it to have a good success.
Joshua 1:8  (NLT)
Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.

The bible is not a is the word of God that answers all our question
It tell us the weapon and equip us for all our fight.
It heals all our wound.
It cures all our diseases.
It straightens all crooked path.
It explains what is yet to come.
It is not a book...It is the word of the Almighty God.

All these points discussed so far does not make us a Christian, only  our personal encounter with Christ Jesus, our confession of sin, repentances and followership of Jesus Christ does.
Christianity is a life we live and not a religion.
For more on this topic, I will refer you to read one of Working-Faith article

If these words touches your life, and you will like to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal saviour. It is simple. Pray a prayer of forgiveness. Acknowledge you are a sinner,  ask Jesus Christ to forgive you all your sins. Call Jesus Christ to fill your heart . If you do this you are save, just look for a church of God around you to join, so as to improve your faith in Christ. Do not forget to read your bible day in and out.
