A Lukewarm Christian is no Christian at all because a lukewarm Christian was never saved in the first place. I just had to jump right in and lay out the truth. Now that that’s out of the way, I’ll make my confession. I used to be a lukewarm Christian. I was a false convert years ago when I thought I believed in Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I did not. I was a false conversion, and what Pam Sheppard describes as a counterfeit birth.
I was brought into a Word of Faith church where I had repeated the demonic sinners prayer a few times too. False converts are luke warm, false converts are those who Jesus will spew, or vomit out of his mouth. Well my friends, I was ripe for the spewing. I thank God Almightly that He drew me to Himself , to the cross of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and to Godly sorrow.
My friends, in those days, I was hooping, hollering, shouting, falling down slain, with the best of them. Or should I say the worst of them. Yes, I most definitely should say the worst of them. That was then, but now I want to warn you, and ask you to please examine yourself, and make sure you are in the faith. Examine yourself, and make sure you are not a counterfeit birth like I used to be. We hate to be considered a lukewarm Christian. We can get puffed up, when someone dares say, we may not be saved. But time is running out, and always has been . Each day we move closer to the return of Christ. Pride not only goes before a fall, it can usher us straight into hell.
The day I realized that I was an unsaved religious, sinful, lukewarm Christian, was difficult at best. But God drew me to the cross of Christ, where there was forgiveness, joy unspeakable and a realization that I was nothing. I am nothing, but in Christ I became something.
My friends, a lukewarm Christians need to get off the fence and choose whom they will serve. If you have no zeal, or concern for the things of God— beware. Don’t take offence, I was once flippant about the things of God. This is a sign of being unsaved. If your pride keeps you from examining your self …Beware. If you get angry if someone implies you may be unsaved, and experienced a counterfeit birth…beware!

Thank you for stopping by. My understanding of scripture and God was sorely lacking in many areas. Please visit us again and read the bondage breaking articles by Pam Sheppard, owner and director of Sheppard’s Counseling Center. She has, and continues to clear up the false conceptions and teachings I learned in the WOF church. I’ve come a long way since Triond.com, and spinning my wheels, blogging about the ills of the organized church….Marlene
