Saint or Demon? Neither I’m a Tiger!
In the New Testament, Christians are called, “... a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people …” (1 Peter 2: 9.) Wonderful stuff and oh so very true. Yet elsewhere it also says, “If we say that we have fellowship with him while we are walking in darkness, we lie and we do not do what is true, but if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his son cleanse us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”(1 John 1: 6 – 8.) This argues quite strongly that not all who claim to be Christians are, despite their words of confession. So then, my question for today is, what are we? Saints or Sinners? Are you a Saint or a Demon?
