Don’t be deceived by anyone’s claim of being a Christian if they aren’t a “new creature.”
If they aren’t a “new creature,” they aren’t saved.
It’s as simple as that.
2 Corinthians 5.17
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.“
15 “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.“
1 John 1
5 ‘This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.“
All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and no glory to us whatsoever.
