To look at some polls, it appears America is very much a Christian nation. But you have to wonder how many of the people surveyed say they’re Christians because they believe there’s a God, grew up with Christian parents who taught them about Christ, or once repeated the sinner’s prayer.
Undoubtedly the sincere claims people make are sometimes far from reality. As chilling as that thought may be, there are countless well-meaning people who believe they’re saved, but aren’t. Could you or someone you know be one of them? How do you know your faith is built on a solid foundation? Or is that something you can ever know this side of eternity?
Determine for yourself whether you’re in the faith. John MacArthur helps you do just that in the study he calls Examine Yourself.
