There’s no such thing as a closet Christian. Either you’re with God or against Him. Either you have committed your life to Christ or you haven’t. We shall be known by our fruits (Matthew 7:16; Jeremiah 17:9-10).

God knows our hearts and He knows if our works are for His glory or for our own. Some of us think we can fool God, but He knows if we’ve truly accepted Him or not. If we haven’t chosen to follow Him, if we continue to try to live in the gray area that some say exists within Christianity, God will toss us up to our own device (Jeremiah 17:9-10; Revelation 3:15-16).

We can’t judge another person on whether they’re righteous or not, whether they’re saved or not. All of us have sinned, including those of us who’ve accepted Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior because we still have the capacity within us to sin. There’s sometimes a war in our minds that Paul talks about in Romans 7:14-25. He wanted to do right, though were times when he still sinned. Does that mean he wasn’t saved? No, that means that he had a moment of weakness and gave in to his natural desires. He repented when he acknowledged his sin and he leaned on the Lord for forgiveness, and strength to do right, and for deliverance from his natural desires – that’s the difference between someone who’s saved and someone who isn’t. An unsaved person won’t care about their sin nor will they be repentant, but a saved person will because it’s their heart’s desire to please God (Romans 5:12, 3:23, 7:14-25, 1:21-25 and 1:28-32).
