Welcome!
My blog has many reasons for being — it’s supports my new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland, shares helpful information, and eventually will tell you more about my two new books. But today I’m introducing a new series I’m calling LOOK for the LIGHT. Here I’ll share some spiritual information that a lot of us have often wondered about.

What’s a Selective Christian? First of all I must clarify that a Christian is someone who has put their faith and trust in God. This happens when they understand several things: why Christ died on the cross, they are sinners, they need God, and as a result they are asking Christ to come into their heart and be their Lord and Savior — change their life by living no longer for themselves but for Christ.

Okay! Now a Selective Christian has understood what living for God is and they claim to want to FOLLOW Christ. A Selective Christian is somebody a lot of times between the ages of 18 – 42 that say they are a committed Christian. They say they have committed their lives to following and serving Christ. But in reality Selective Christians pick and choose what they want to obey and do from the scriptures. This means there’s very little change in their lifestyle from before they invited Christ into their heart. Simply put, they do what they want and their lifestyles are really no different than non-Christians. They may gamble, drink, go to the clubs, and visit pornographic websites. They are more like fans of Christ rather than people who are sold out and are living their lives FOLLOWING JESUS.

Are you a Selective Christian? Here are two things you can ask yourself to determine your own status.
1. Do you and others notice any change in your life? For example, has your behavior or attitudes changed in a good way?
2. Have you left behind a former identity — a former lifestyle? Maybe you no longer want to drink and go to the bar on the weekends.

See you back here in a couple weeks (election next Tuesday). Our topic will be “How Does Praise Make Your Life Better?”

Make it a good week!
God Bless You!
