Will you be ashamed when you meet the saints?

Damian must have returned from vacation, as he is bothering us again with his questions. This time, he as the gall to assume that we in 21st century Christianity actually should measure ourselves by others who have gone before.

Yet, if we were to judge our conduct by those Christians who have come before us, we would find humbler people who have achieved greater things in the service of God’s kingdom. Might this inspire us? Perhaps, when our time is over, we would like to be able to say that in the company of the saints, we would not be ashamed?

I mean, what if we took it to the next level and began to judge our doctrine and practices by those that have gone on before, and more especially, those that were taught by the Apostles?

Damian, really, go back on vacation and then return and write something which will placate our Christianity and allow us to assume that we are our own judges.

    1. It was differently sarcasm to Damian in that I do believe we should measure ourselves by those who have gone on before. So often, people seem to think that their Christianity is the real Christianity regardless if anyone has believed it before. Further, they hold up modern people as great and wonderful men of God without looking to past to see how men who have gone before.

      Paul said,

      NAU 2 Thessalonians 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from every brother who leads an unruly life and not according to the tradition which you received from us.

      NLT 2 Thessalonians 3:6 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we give you this command in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ: Stay away from all believers who live idle lives and don’t follow the tradition they received from us.

      There is a good tradition, but people seem to forget about that.
