Re: Almost a Christian

A man may have great and eminent gifts...and yet be almost a Christian....such were they who will plead with Christ, "Lord Lord, we have prophesied in Thy name, and in Thy name have cast out devils...." A man may preach like an apostle, pray like a angel, and yet may have the heart of a Devil. It is grace only that can change the heart.. --Matthew Mead

In all Judas' eminency and profession of Christ, he had no true love of Christ, no saving faith. Judas that preaches, that works miracles, that is often in duties with Christ, yet he is not sincere! --Anthony Burgess (1656)

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' (Mat 7:21-23)

Then Agrippa said to Paul, "You almost persuade me to become a Christian." And Paul said, "I would to God that not only you, but also all who hear me today, might become both almost and altogether such as I am, except for these chains." (Acts 26:28-29) (VW)
