I urge you beloveds, get into the Word of God so that you are not easily deceived and follow every whim of doctrine. Begin to have an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit and ask Him to fill you with His fire, so that when you hear something that is contrary to the Word of God or watered down, you may hear His still small voice warning you not to believe or receive what you are hearing. There are far too many cookie cutter Christians (Christians by title only) and not hearers and doers of the Word. Too many have been deceived to follow the ways of the world instead of being different and separate from the world. We are to be GODLY examples in word and deed so that others may know that we are TRUE disciples. Do not allow yourselves to fall into what the world is doing (drinking, smoking, getting tattoos, sexual sins, etc.) We are to walk in holiness and sin no more!!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, HE is a NEW creature; the OLD things passed away; behold, NEW things have come. Which means, you are no longer to do the same things, talk the way you used to, behave the way you used to but you are to walk in a NEW way, the way of Christ. Christ wouldn't be getting tattoos, drinking or committing sexual sins?? We are examples to those around us and we are to declare what God has done for us and how He has transformed us and brought us out from sin. That is our testimony!!!
