What is a "true" Christian? Am I a true believer? Christians are the ones who walk the path of Jesus Christ, and God must be the center of Christians’ lives. We should examine ourselves - the life we live reflects whether we are true or false Christians. We are God’s holy temple and should offer a living sacrifice through our lives.
Do you emit the fragrance of Jesus? May the word of God awaken our spirit and lead us to follow the truth of Christ.

Away from me, you evildoers!’
