EXAMINE YOURSELF SURVEY
Recently I was asked, “How can I know I am not a false convert?”
The Scripture says ”Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith” 2 Corinthians 13:5
I proposed these questions taken from various individuals like Ray Comfort and Paul Washer that are based on the Scriptures.
1. Has God so worked in your life were the sins you once commited you now hate? Romans Chapter 7
2. Do you sin with the intention of sinning? Romans chapter 6
3. Do you hate sin to the point of rather going to Hell than live in sin?
4. Do you have the fruits of the Spirit in your life? Galatians 5:22-24
5. Is God the center of your affections? Mark 12:30
6. Is your confidence in Christ or yourself? Ephesians 2:8-9
7. Do you make provisions for the flesh? Romans 13:14
If you did not answer all these questions correctly that does not mean you are not a Christian, but you should be able to answer alot of them in your life if you are truly saved.
If you come in contact with false converts when you are out on the streets evangelizing these are great questions to ask them to see if they are truly in the faith.
