What is a true witness of Jesus Christ?
Jesus said we are to imitate Him as a true follower, love being the greatest commandment of all. The true witnesses from the false witnesses can you tell?
The false witnesses among us are deceiving many,advocating hate,retaliation and war instead of love,forgiveness and peace, which is why Jesus gave us this warning which most significantly is almost never repeated in most churches:
Matthew 7:14-16 (Contemporary English Version)
14But the gate to life is very narrow. The road that leads there is so hard to follow that only a few people find it.
15Watch out for false prophets! They dress up like sheep, but inside they are wolves who have come to attack you. 16You can tell what they are by what they do. No one picks grapes or figs from thorn bushes.
To the contrary many ministers teach that good works are completely unnecessary for Christians which helps to explain why there is so much poverty,desperation and abject misery in the world. Those who promote this evil false teaching put themselves in the spiritual wolf mode mentioned in verse 15 , because they are trying to prevent members of their churches from obtaining God's blessings.
Matthew 16:26-27 (New King James Version)
26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.
The true witness of Jesus Christ are the christians for they focuss on the man and misses the HiS Spirit,
But this witness is a false witness.
The only true witness of Christ is the Spirit and the Spirit is Truth and no apostle teacher prophet pastor can ever take that place.
A true witness of Jesus Christ is one that strives daily to live his life as Christ did on this earth. We are not perfect as Christ is, but we can live our lives daily for him. We must spend time in prayer and Bible study each and every day and stay in close communion with the Holy spirit. We must die to him spiritually and let Christ live through us each day. It is a day to day process. We must have our eyes and ears open to the people around us and be sensitive to their needs and help them in whatever way we can. We must always be about sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with all that will listen and accept his gift of eternal life for their sins.

What if you had to share the Gospel without the Bible?Think about the early Church! It did not have the Bible to help them spread the word of God! If we did not have the Bible how would you share the good news of Jesus Christ?

All disciples of Jesus Christ are christians, but are all christians true disciples?What does it take to be a true disciple? And why do many who state they are christians never call themselves or see themselves as disciples? How many times have you heard some say; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ?...

There's a lot of going back and forth about how Christians are this that or another. Yet no one ever pins down exactly what specific belief it is that makes Christians delusional, or hateful or whatever. The fact is that not all Christians believe the same thing, and not even members of our own...
