I been chatting to a friend of mine who has been to China; and He come back wearing a Buddha necklace, and my other friend asked him was He a Christian or was He into Buddism, He answered saying He was born buddist, but He is a Christian now, he wondered if I was mad at him and I said No not mad just disappointed that he would want to wear something that represents that belief.
And another thing it seems like even though he says He is Christian that he is wavery about if he is Christian or not, sometimes He questions it; I told him several times there is nothing that will seperate him from God if He truly believes that God has called him. He thinks if I do this one little thing I am doomed and I told him yeah I reconize that cause I used to believe that too but I know now that my God says in His word that Nothing can take us out of His hand, But doesn't mean just because we are Christians and Saved by Grace that we can go and do stupid things; but we should want to Serve God with what He has given us, His Holy Word and the Holy Spirit to guide us into His Truth.
Below is Scriptures that we are His and nothing can seperate us from Him.
Romans 8:35-39 (King James Version)
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Another one is John 10:27-30 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one."
So if you are truly a Christian, theres no seperating you from your Creator and Father God Almighty!!! If you sin just tell the Father your sorry and to give you the strength to carry on.
I believe thats all I will say this morning, please pray for my friend that is back from China that He is truly a Christian and not tossed around about with different doctrines of religions.
Thats it for now.
