John 8:31-32 says: Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” If anyone wants to follow Jesus. They have to follow his teaching. You can’t pick and choose what you want and don’t want when it comes to Jesus. It’s all…or nothing.
Many people believe in God but don’t do what he asks. Other people follow the bits of the bible that they agree with and just skip over the bits they don’t like. Jesus says that we are only true followers of Him if we stay faithful to his teachings. All of them! And by remaining faithful to His teaching we will know the truth of what it means to be a real child of God.
It doesn’t work to be a half baked Christian. Either be full-on or not at all, you can’t sit on the fence on this one.
