Do You Act As Christ Would?

If Christ was to return would you want to be caught doing some things that you do?

1. What you read. Psalms 101:3 Does it honor Christ? Would you want your pastor or friends to see it, or would you hide it?
Here is a list of some popular books that a Christian should not read.
#1. Harry Potter. This series is full of witchcraft and is very occultic, and occultism is WRONG! 1 Samuel 15:23, and in Galatians 5:20 it is listed as a work of the flesh.
#2. Lord of the Rings. This is also full of witchcraft and is wrong for the same reasons.

2. What you watch? Psalms 101:3 Would you allow your children to view it? Is it filled with trash, profanity, drunkenness etc.
A list of movies a Christian shouldn't watch.
#1. Star Wars. These films all have occultism in them, which alone should be enough for a Christian not to watch them. Not to mention the profanity, women etc.

3. Where you go? 1 Thess. 5:22. Would your children be allowed to go in with you? If your friends saw it, would it be possible for them to gossip about it?
Would you go into a bar with your kids? Would you want them going into a movie store?

4. The way you talk? Eph. 4:29 Is it vulgar, crude? Would it be alright if you were in mixed company?
Do you want your children to grow up and talk as you do?

5. How you act? 1 Peter 5:8 Are you sober or foolish? 1 Timothy 3:2-7 I know this is aimed at men, but it would be good for everyone. Are you know as a Christian, of one that has good behaviour? Does the world look at you and say "He/she claims to be a Christian?"

6. The music you listen to? Eph. 5:19 says to sing to "...Hymns, songs and spiritual songs."
There is no such thing as "Christian" rock, they don't go together. Most rock stars Christian or otherwise, are filthy, and vile.
#1. Jars of Clay. When asked by Christianity today magazine to list their musical influences none of them listed a Christian singer. They listed Ozzie Osborne, The Beatles, etc. Right before Billy Graham (another compromiser) had them sing at one of his crusades, Jars of Clay recorded an R-rated film full of trash and profanity. The lead vocalist from the group said "We don't want to be called a 'Christian Band', because it is a turnoff." No one who is a Christian should be ashamed of being know as one, Paul said in Rom. 1 he was not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.
#2. DC Talk. Some of their role models include The Beatles, David Bowie, and the Police, all of which are secular wicked rock stars. DC Talk performs Jimmy Hendrix's song Purple Haze, and opened their 'Jesus Freak' concert with an old Beatles song. No Christian would do this.
