I been a Christian for 12 years, I'm not a very good Christian but every church I go to thinks I'm a new believer

Stick with belonging to one church for a while. Get to know them, let them get to know you. If you're living in true fellowship and community with others, they'll get an accurate sense of your spiritual maturity soon enough.

As a believer, we're to be in God's Word on a regular basis and be growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ -- why do you say you're not a very good Christian. And what can you do about it?

Every christian in whom the Holy Spirit works in shows signs of their faith more outwardly. When people dont show those signs, people assume you are relatively new to the faith, and that the Holy Spirit is only starting to convict you of things of the world you need to stay away from.

I don't go to church, I have evil thoughts and my faith isn't strong. I can't be perfect I keep going back into sinning I can't control my self. I try to read and I want to believe in Jesus.

Hello there, @Godsangel,

Don't worry about your thoughts or the apparent strength of your faith (or lack of it), or indeed about your imperfections, Simply trust God, and know that He is faithful, and will do all that He promised you in His word. That if you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ His Son, that He has taken the penalty of your sin upon Himself and died in your place, and risen again that you too may live in newness of life before the Father, then a work of God has begun in you, and you are now His workmanship. He will not fail to accomplish in you all that He has promised.

The work of Christ is a finished work, and you are complete in Him, even though in your own eyes you are indeed imperfect, in God's eyes you are holy and without blame. For your sins have been forgiven, and you are in Christ. Safe and secure, and nothing can separate you from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus. So trust and do not be afraid. You are more precious than many sparrows, and God knows when each one of them falls to the ground.

You are dearly loved, Godsangel. Don't look inward, Don't look outward by comparing yourself with others, but look up to where Christ sits at God's right hand. For you are in Him, and He is your Lord and Intercessor, Who ever lives to present you perfect before the Father. Who is your Father in Him.

Read John's gospel, read Ephesians chapter one, and Praise God! For it will bring you the confidence and reassurance that you need.

Big Hug to you
In Christ Jesus
our risen and glorified
Saviour, Lord and Head.

Chris

I don't go to church,
FIRST MAJOR MISTAKE!!! You won't survive, or get mature as a Christian without involvement with a church.

I have evil thoughts and my faith isn't strong.
Not surprising. Without the involvement with other Christians, you'll not make much progress. "Evil Thoughts" are normal for humanity, and FAITH comes from GOd's WORD to you (ROm 10:17).

I can't be perfect I keep going back into sinning I can't control my self.
Absolutely CORRECT!! You Can't be PERFECT experimentally, and you WILL go back to the sins that you enjoy - that's human nature.

try to read and I want to believe in Jesus.
It SOUNDS as though you're PROBABLY not a Born Again Christian at all - which would be your first and most IMPORTANT step. I'd suggest getting with an evangelical Pastor (Baptist, Assembly of GOd, Nazarene etc.) and sharing your concerns, so that he can assist you with your spiritual life.

@ Bob -- I'd agree with all of your comments Except that getting with a pastor isn't really necessary.

@ Godsangle -- First of all -- what do you base your Christianity On. You stated that you've been a Christian for 12 yrs. So what do you base that On? Have you acknowledged to God through Jesus Christ that you are a sinner and that you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God -- in His death, burial and bodily resurrection on the 3rd day? That based on Ephesians 2:8-9 that good works are not included in any one's salvation. That 'for by grace, you are saved through faith. What / where are you placing Your faith. In the shed blood of Christ on the cross? or are you wanting to add a good work that you've done To the shed blood of Christ. Lots of people want to add their 'thing' To that. It won't help anything.

And then everything else Would apply. Lots of human nature -- but a born again believer Does have the Holy Spirit in them to help them.

I'm sounding like I'm trying to be an authority figure -- I'm simply agreeing with you.
