All the human beings have sins. We do.
But, except the original sins, are christians better than the other people?
Sometimes I feel so.:thumbs_up
In my campus, everynight you can see young fellows get drunk and girls wear so cheap.
on the way from the Library to my home, after 11 pm, drunk people try to make trouble to you or girls hint on you.
Shame on them!:thumbs_do
Ok, I used to be one of them, but since I believed Jesus, I do feel the difference between my old life and the new life. Not only in my life, but in all the christians' lives I know. We are walking in the lights, and the other people still have been walking in the darkness.
So can I keep the idea that christians are better than the others, if we are not talking about the original sin?

Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Gal 6:3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

1Co 9:16
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!


I`m sorry JesusistheGod, the shame is on you, the only difference between you and the kids on campus is God`s grace.

Dear JesusistheGod,

God bless you, bro, and praise God for your strength! I am blessed that you are focused on Jesus when the others are focused on their fleshly pleasures.

To answer your question, no, JesusistheGod, we are not better, just saved!
Jesus was criticised for eating with the tax collectors, the prositutes, the sinners. We are to do the same.

Are we greater than the unsaved? No. Please read and meditate on Mark 9:35, Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."

I have to take a look in the mirror every moment and ask God to release the ugliness in my inner cup, then forgive those who may have hurt me (many times its my attitude that causes others to react thus hurting my feelings) and then ask our Father to forgive me in Jesus name.

Your servant in Christ Jesus.

jesusisthegod..

Your last repsonse.. brought such a smile to my face.. a honest question some honest corrections and a humble response and a drive on attitude.. I just love that.. I wish all christian growing and understanding could be so easy.

when I was saved I felt that exact same way to.. and I gew and was humbled.. and the bible says rejoice that your name is written in the book of life..

Now I just pray for my lost friends who dont know or understand what they are missing

In love

Romans 2:10 - But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
1 Corinthians 1:4 - I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;
1 Corinthians 1:31 - That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 3:21 - Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's;


Ephesians 5
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

in conclusion:
Maybe our performance is good from the prospective of other people, but anythin can be called 'good' belongs to Jesus Christ. He is the reason for all good things.
