Question 6.

Good Morning Father, the most important question that should be asked is "what makes a good christian"


Answer to Question 6.


God is love and every Christian must strive to attain this Christ-like love for all people and all of Godís creation. Love is the criterion by which we shall be judged. If we cannot love our fellow men then in truth we donít love Christ, because he has created each man in his own image and likeness. Christian love transcends above someoneís physical appearance, social standing, ethnic origin, intellectual capacity and reaches the soul, the unique personal root of a human being where the image of God is. To understand what love means read the Parable of the Last Judgment (Matthew 25:31-46).
