Are Christians held to a higher standard of behavior than non-Christians?


The most ludicrous thing I've heard yet is someone saying they wish there was a test to see whether one is a true Christian. What the hell do you need that for? So you can judge a Christian and jump all over them when they screw up? Why do non-Christians think they know what being a Christian is all about? And if they expect Christians to be perfect, why would they choose to stay and be imperfect?

    Lk 18:19 "...Why call thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, GOD!" (JESUS talking!) Why did HE say this? HE was "in the flesh" at the time & flesh is "subject" to sin (Rm 8:8)!

    Holy Spirit changes us from "glory to glory" (II Cor 3:18)!

    It was a pretty stupid statement regardless. What she cannot understand is that Christians are people too, and they will mess up from time to time. No one can be perfect. That is the reason we need a savior. What would you do with test results?

    Matt 7:25 "..& the rain came & winds blew & beat upon that house; & it fell not: for it was founded upon a ROCK" (JESUS) or "The Gospel of Christ" AFTER "The Day of Pentecost" under NEW COVENANT (Acts 2 FWD) or Gal 1:6-9!

    "Because" they have "leaned to their own understanding" (Prov 3:5) via tradition, teachings, & haven't "studied" the Word of God!

    I wish "believers" would "wipe the slate clean," & "Study" (II Tim 2:15)!

    I am "righteous by FAITH" (Rm 3:22)! I live under NEW COV or Christ "Died in Vain" (Gal 2:21)!

    Tell Peter he should've "controlled his behavior" when he cut off soldier's ear (Jn 18:10) & JESUS w/him!

    Hosea 4:6 "Lack of knowledge" applies to u!

    IF "Christ dwells in us," (we may not change overnight), the world should see "some type of change!" Don't you think?

    Matthew 7:15-20!

    That's right. Unbelievers/non-Christians have no law/guide nor restriction to their actions, "where there is no sin, there is no law." But unbelievers should also note that "sin is lawlessness." (1 John 3:4b)

    " Christians aren't supposed to judge;" Who "taught" u that? Ps37:30! "JUDGMENT" comes fm HIS WORD ;HE "JUDGES!"

    Want more Scriptures saying GOD "loves" JUDGMENT?

    IF we "look" at what one does, Peter would be in "HELL" (cut off ear, denied JESUS 3x's,etc)!

    The ONLY way one can "judge" someone is their BELIEF aligns with "rightly divided" WORD!

    Gal 1:6-9! We're living AFTER Acts 2 (NEW COV) or "ACCURSED!"

    Satan is notorious for "looking as man does" (I Samuel 16:7)! Unfortunately, you do not know GOD! GOD look @ one's "heart!" Can you? If not, it's only your "opinion" & doesn't amount to a hill of beans!!!

    Where will that leave you - if an "unbeliever?"

    If there is a heaven & "they are there too," then there is a "HELL!"

    I agree with you 100 percent.

    But Like Noah who also believed in God as you was Gods Friend. What made that possible Gen 6:22 "And Noah did according to all that God commanded him he did just so "

    Because of that he saved his family .7 other lives.

    You are an "unbeliever" I respect! No, not "that they dislike," but against what GOD has said as with various denominations. One may thk "personal," but if against His Word, err. Some LGBT have hi morals/values but Rm 1:25-32! Flesh= Mk 10:18!

    "Intelligence" has NOTHING to do with SPIRITUALITY! That seems to be your hang up (Prov 3:5) as was Paul's (2 Cor 12:6-16)!

    When over educated = "problem" re: ego/pride (IJn2:16)!

    After all, the majority of Jesus' disciples were mere fisherman!
