How Christian Life Works
How we think about the forces at work in life it is supposed to change once we become Christians. This is because God begins to work with us in a different way than he did before we came to him. Learn more about these changes in How Christian Life Works.

In our last presentation, which was called, Are You a Superstitious Christian? we explained that most of us view life from a human perspective rather than God’s. And, if you think about it, that’s a perfectly natural thing to do – so natural that we do it without even thinking about it. But part of being a Christian is to think about our Christian life in a new way, since things have changed. And some people have become quite superstitious about God. There are some things we can do, however, to judge more accurately what’s happening to us and why – that can be based on the revealed reality of God out of the Bible, instead of superstition. So we will address those things in this presentation, which is called, How Christian Life Works. So that’s where we are today.
Now I’m going to give you some examples of superstitious thinking that doesn’t square with Christianity. “If I’m good” – whatever good means – “life should be easy. “ Or, “I will be punished for my sins.” Or, “I will be forgiven and gain salvation if I do good.” Or, “It’s not fair when bad things happen to good people.” We think things like this and we hear people talk this way all the time. We think that we can earn credit with God by the things that we do quite often. And we think that a lot of things really aren’t fair that happen, and not only that, they shouldn’t happen, because it’s just not fair.
For Further Consideration
This presentation, How Christian Life Works, is a sequel to Are you a Superstitious Christian. If you didn’t hear that one you can access it here.
Also, in How Christian Life Works, we referenced another presentation titled, Jesus and the Feast of Tabernacles, because it explains the Church of God belief about a second resurrection for those who never learned of God in this life.
