Being Christian


“Christians ought to be possessed of generosity, mercy, and forgiveness…Christians should not seek recognition for their efforts, other than to honor God.” (Orthodox Study Bible, 1 Corinthians 6:7, David Kinnaman & Gabe Lyons)

“In a world that is filled with self-serving individuals, the genuine love of Christians should attract others to the faith.” (Foundation Study Bible, 1 Thessalonians 4:10)

“Christians are called to influence the world, not to run away from it (Matt. 5:13–16). They are agents of God to carry the light of Jesus Christ into a dark world (Phil. 2:14–16; 1 Pet. 2:11–12)…As Christians we must make sure the present strife in our world does not become the vehicle for the virus of hate to enter our hearts.” (Foundation Study Bible, 1 Corinthians 5:10, Abbot Tryphon)

“Rightly believing Christians...live in hope that God will save everyone as He can and that God has already done so in Christ. They know that they can “judge” only those within the Church, not those outside (see 1 Cor. 5:12–13). And they always resist the temptation to think that they know what God’s final judgment will be for any person, even while professing to know the criteria of divine judgment, which they apply first of all to themselves. They also stand firm in their conviction that it is never too late for anyone to repent." (Father Thomas Hopko)

“...we must connect spiritual wisdom with real-world knowledge...Christians must connect our commitment to God with real-world knowledge and experience." (David Kinnaman)
