I heard a very famous pastor from a large local church on the radio the other day. He was speaking about a friend of his (who is now a pastor), recalling how in the early days of this man’s walk with God that he was a “nominal Christian”.
I also know a couple of pastors who were discussing people’s “false declarations of faith”.
What I would like to know is just how we can know when either one of these scenarios is the truth about someone?
Is there any chance that some (or all) of those in the first photo, may not be Christians?
How about the guy in the second photo who is shooting up in the alley?
I am open to any thoughts that you might have on the subject.
