Biblical Christianity is rooted in the historical truth concerning the Lord Jesus Christ who died and rose again. However, merely assenting to the truths of Christianity does not fully capture what it means to be a Christian. The truths concerning the Lord Jesus Christ have practical effect on those who are Christian. Christianity is practically seen in Christians. But what are some of the practical marks of Christianity? Love and holiness are two essential marks.
Cap Stewart blogs at Happier Far. His posts are often provocative and usually very helpful. Using James 1:27, he argues for love and holiness as essential marks of genuine Christianity. While I think we might expand upon those two virtues, no accurate account entailing the marks of a Christian would leave love and holiness of the list.
I want to encourage you to read his excellent blog post:
