Secondly –The Cultural Christian- “Type C”
The "C" stands for the Counterfeit Christian. They have learned the language, the performance and they are just pretending. These are plentiful. When difficulties come they drop out quickly.
Luke 8:12 (NASB) "Those beside the road are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they will not believe and be saved.
Modern thinking breaks down, by advertising to people that all they have to do is say a prayer and they will be saved- born again. Prayer doesn’t save you; faith saves.
Ephesians 2: 8-9 says,” For by grace are you saved through faith; and not of yourselves , it is the gift of God, not as a result of works, so that no one can boast.”
