Hello all, I hope everyone is having a great day. Basically I have read a lot of Bible verses that talk about how man or woman of Christ should behave and treat each-other as well as their "enemies". I really think that the characteristics he wants us to possess (I think demands us too) are wonderful and great. I am so happy to have such a good God that doesn't want us to be harsh to others. With that being said, I'm wondering if anyone can answer these few questions. 1. Is is possible to be a man of Christ if your still a "baby-christian"? My elaboration, I feel like my dad is a "baby-christian" because he say's he is a christian ( and that he has been all his life) but I see him act with little to no qualities that I believe any christian should have. He wishes bad for many people (them going to hell and other things), he drinks a lot, he curses 24/7, I never see him read his Bible, He is always frustrated, He wont go to church, I never hear or see him be joyful about God, He doesn't want to forgive others ever and holds their past mistakes against them no matter how big or small. 2. Is this how a christian man or father acts? The day before yesterday he screamed at me over his problems he has with his mom (he stopped talking to her 7 months ago because she doesn't "respect" him), then punched a hole in the wall. It really upset me for a number of reasons. He hasn't apologized to me (he is a person that just can not say sorry) but just explained that he's starting to "change" because he's too frustrated and needs to be doing better with himself. I just said to him that was great to hear and I hope that he is capable of doing so. Honestly I could care less if he apologizes, I forgive him. 3. Even though, like I said I could care less if he doesn't apologize, should a christian man or father still do so? Please don't judge me for talking this way about him. I'm not constantly thinking how bad he is or something (I make mistakes everyday!). I'm just trying to understand WHAT a christian man or father acts like, I have never really been close with one. Is he the way a christian man or father acts? Thank you to anyone who responds with the best answer they can! Bye.
