Human nature almost always takes everything as a joke. Even in the face of the most difficult situation, there is always someone to joke about it. Not even death escapes that mocking spirit.
But, for those who know the Word of God, it is impossible not to respect the final destiny of the soul.
In that case, this thing is very serious and you can not play.
Addressing Roman Christians, Paul gives a strong warning, saying:
… and those who live according to the flesh can not please God. But you do not live according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. Romans 8: 8,9
Paul removes any doubt regarding the spiritual condition of those who belong to those who do not belong to the Lord Jesus Christ, even though they also confess to being Christians.
Either you have or do not have the Holy Spirit.
There is no other way. He who does not have the Spirit of the Lord Jesus is not of Him!
There is no way to discuss, defend or guarantee to others that he is of God, that he is a Christian, that he has been faithful to him, etc.
He can even speak in tongues, heal the sick, preach the Gospel, expel demons … Matthew 7:22
What really guarantees to be of God is to be possessed by His Spirit.
The personal behavior of each individual gives clear signals that he belongs or not to the Lord Jesus.
It is very true that many times the character of the weeds is camouflaged until it shows its fruits (character, respect, fear …)
However, sooner or later, the difference between who he is and who he is not will be brutal.
The fact is that:
… the one who joins the Lord, One spirit is with Him. 1 Corinthians 6:17
