Test of Your Nature

Test 7 of 9


1 John 1:5-7 says,

  • God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

  • Like 'The Test of Your Righteousness' (5.), this test covers your ongoing walk. Yes, a Christian can sin (see 8. Confession); a Christian can also fall pretty heavily; but a Christian absolutely cannot walk - which is continual, deliberate action as opposed to an accident - in sin. "If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie".

    A person who walks in darkness thinks a swim in sewerage is like a swim in the local, fresh, clean swimming pool. A person who walks in the light might somehow fall into sewerage, but then out of disgust immediately tries to get out, and then cleans himself. The Christian hates sin, just like the rest of the family (such as God) he's been brought into. The person who believes him or herself to be a Christian and yet justifies walking in sin is a "(liar) and (does) not live by the truth".
