“Am I Really a Christian?”

Thabiti Anyabwile asks:

Have you ever asked yourself that question? “Am I really a Christian?”

Does asking yourself that question make you an insecure or perhaps doubtful Christian? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Perhaps asking yourself that question is the healthiest and wisest thing you could do spiritually. Or to put it another way, is there any wisdom in never asking yourself that question? Could it be that the most foolish thing we could do is never ask and answer that question with biblical grit?

Mike McKinley’s new book, asks and helps answer the question Am I Really a Christian? I’m excited about this book and when you read you will be, too. I’m excited because Mike has lovingly, winsomely, soberly, and helpfully offered a diagnosis of that most deceptive and damaging of spiritual problems: nominalism. How would we know if we’re “Christians” in name only? And if we discovered we were, what should we do next? For answers, check out Mike’s book and the new website which offers helpful videos and information. Here’s one:

What is a nominal Christian? from Crossway on Vimeo.

Check the website and check the book. I’m sure the book will be a great blessing to someone who may be need to face this question with soberness and hope.
