There is a Difference

And He appointed twelve, so that they would be with Him and that He could send them out to preach, and to have authority to cast out the demons. Mark 3:14-15.

So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?" He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." Acts 1:6-8.

One of the many misconceptions of the Christian life is that Believers are whimps. The reality is far different than the perception that is supposed. The perception is present because there are far fewer Believers than there are imposters.

Believers in Christ are those who have received the call of Christ and are involved in proclaiming the Good News of His Message throughout the world. For this reason Believers are everywhere, though small in number when compared to world population.

Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest." Matthew 9:37-38.
Imposters are large in numbers even though they may attend places of worship and carry Bibles. But Imposters do not possess the Name of Christ and are what may be referenced as Inclusive. This simply means that they accept a lifestyle that is not in keeping with the Word of God and are ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh This is the deceiver and the antichrist. 2 John 1:7.

The earmark of every Christian is one who follows the Christ and these are easily distinguished.

"Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.” Matthew 7:19-21.
