There are certain universal, altruistic characteristics of the man of God. Namely, the man of God is not self-centered, he is Christ centered. He is not self-controlled, he is Christ-controlled. He is not self-righteous, he lives his life with humility. He is not self-reliant but has an unwavering faith and dependency on God’s Word. He is not self-confident, he is confident that God is his strength in his weakness. Understanding the sovereignty of God, He is not a “self-made man” but has an awareness that without the hand of God in his life he would be destitute in every way.
You ask, "HOW CAN I KNOW" if I am attending a "FAKE CHURCH" and listening to lies?
"STUDY THE HOLY BIBLE FOR YOURSELF" and it will "MAKE YOU WISE"! "SEEK GOD" with "ALL YOUR HEART" until you become "BORN AGAIN!" Hide the words of GOD in your heart and they will "KEEP YOU FROM YIELDING TO SIN"!
Refreshed and strengthened from my time in the safety of His love, I draw in a breath. Just before I plunge once again into the struggle again sin, the struggle against the evil one, I look up and utter a thank you. "Thank you Lord, for loving one such as me. Thank you Lord, for believing in me and for loving me.
