Test your faith…

Is the actual experience and testimony of the child of God different today, than during the period of New Testament writings?

Is the Church, the body of Christ the same today as it was then, 2009 years ago? Are we likewise members of the same body of Christ as the early Apostles? Were the Apostles Paul, Peter, James, and John different than present day Christian’s or vice versa?

Can a Christian live without sin in this present world of modern distraction’s unlike distraction’s during the first century?

Should present Christian lifestyle be in line with lives of men who kept records of the Christian experience after the death and ascension of Christ? Should Christianity be the same today as it was in the early Church?

What kept men of God during the early church in harmony with Christ’s death, burial, resurrection, and ascension? Why were men obedient to Christ back then? Was it mere faith; the work of the Spirit; or a combination of both? At present should a Christian’s faith and obedience to Christ be different than a Christian’s faith and obedience was to Christ during the first century?

Why were New Testament writers (after the death of Christ) in subjection to an ascended Christ? Should a child of God behave differently today, 2009 years since Christ’s ascension?

How were New Testament writers able to endure temptation?

Why did the writers of New Testament Epistles instruct believers to depart from sin? What made them over comers to worldly deception and snares that came from the wicked one? What gave those men of God the ability to resist the Devil? Should we experience and testify to this same victory?

Is the power of Christ given to us today, as it was to them 2009 years ago? Is the power of Christ different in 2009 than during the first century? Does the power of God’s Grace written about in New Testament Epistles apply to present day Christians?

What keeps men of God sensitive, aware, and conscious, to the Holy Spirit’s presence? Did the Apostles at the Early Church compromise truth revealed in their hearts, to abstain from sin? What compelled them to testify and write about a moral change experienced through the power of a living Christ?

Is this same power available today? Should our personal experience and testimony be the same as believer’s experienced and testified during and after the First Century? Be truthful. If you don’t know the answers… study your Bible. If you do know the answers…put them in action for the cause of Christ.
