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!
