If you were put on trial …

“If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?”

I first heard that question as a teen in youth Sunday school. It was meant both as a challenge and as a way of stating that real Christianity entails more than lip service.

The implication was: “If you say you are a Christian but there is no evidence, start producing evidence!” — a stance that assumes the person in question is a Christian.

Today, when I look at a professing Christian who bears no evidence, I think, “Cultural Christian” or “Not a Christian.” Innocent until proven guilty!
