Full Time Christian

We cannot be part-time Christians. We are all in full-time Christian service, or we should be.  A man who is faithful to his wife most of the time is not faithful at all.  A man who is a Christian and something else is not a Christian. The friend of the world is the enemy of God. Billy Sunday used to say,  “There is no such thing as a worldly Christian. You might as well talk about a heavenly devil.”

[Vance Havner]

James 4:4 ... Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

1 John 2:15 ...  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Romans 12:1 ... I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

1 Peter 1:14-16 ...  As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
