    I'm intrigued as to whether those of dj2becker's ilk - claiming that there is only one true version of Christianity (theirs by definition) - are able to recognise other 'true' christians. If so, is it by secret power? What other processes might allow a satisfactory assessment of potential brothers in god?

    I believe there's a secret handshake and matching pieces of a Jell-O box involved.

    I guess they could simply ask God.

    Also, how can this SECRET SIGNAL or whatever be used to pose convincingly as a true Christian? In particular, is the SECRET SIGNAL such that such a ruse would contradict god's omniscience?

    I think there must be JESUS PHEROMONES which true Christians use to smell each other.

    There are plenty of nominal Christians that go to Church, but have never experienced the power of God in their lives, convicting them of sin, righteousness and judgment. They have never turned their backs on sin and their old lives. A true child of God is one who has been cleansed and justified.(in spiritual terms) They are very easy to recognize. The outward appearance will tell the whole story.

    What do true children of God look like? Are they just cleaner than others?

    On the inside, yes. 😉

    What is on the inside shines forth on the outside.

    Those who are really saved will show it with the way they live their life. Anybody can mouth those words.

    The spelling looks promising. But I can't see if you are clean.

    Couple of personal experiences:
    At a company seminar in Florida I was sitting in class the first day & noticed a guy sitting in the back of the room & thought he was a Christian. That night when all of us were walking down the street to a restaurant, he said you’re a Christian aren’t you. He was a deacon in his church.

    I was standing in front of a hotel in St. Louis & saw a well-dressed man walking down the street & the thought crossed my mind he was a preacher. Not an ordinary one, but an old-fashioned Gospel preacher. As he approached the hotel entrance, he said “Hello” to a couple of people standing around. When he passed me to enter the hotel, he laid a hand on my shoulder & said “Praise the Lord. How you doing?” That’s when I noticed he was wearing a name tag that identified him as “Reverend -------“

    The Holy Spirit recognizes Himself in others, Iguess.
