Top 10 Ways to Be a Nominal Christian

1. If you view life as a list of check boxes with the following parenthetical statement at the top (Check at least 5 of the following 500 requirements to be saved)…you might just be a nominal Christian.

2. If you put a fish on the back of your car but drive like a maniac…you might just be a nominal Christian.

3. If you believe that helping the poor is something done at the church office rather than on the street…you might just be a nominal Christian.

4. If you let Christ into your holidays but not your heart…you might just be a nominal Christian.

5. If you think sacrifice means you attend some Wednesday nights…you might just be a nominal Christian.

6. If the frequency of your prayers matches the frequency of your struggles (No struggles = no prayers…many struggles = many prayers)…you might just be a nominal Christian.

7. If you send your children to church but stay home and do your own thing…you might just be a nominal Christian.

8. If you come to church because it is good for business and social climbing…you might just be a nominal Christian.

9. If you boldly wear the name “Christian” when it is convenient (I am sure glad Jesus didn’t just stand up for us when it was popular or convenient!)…you might just be a nominal Christian.

10. If you think fellowship most effectively takes place in pews…you might just be a nominal Christian.

    I think if #7 & #8 were true they might be even less than a nominal Christian.
