Does Christianity have stages one must undergo to become a full fledged Christian?

Question:

Answer

Pastors’ response: Well, there are no stages to undergo to become of fully-Fledged or Full-fledged Christian, there are no stages you become a full Christian at once when you are born again. You know the Bible says 2 Corinthians 5:17 “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; and all things are become new”. You become a Christian once and at once you give your heart to Christ and you receive internal life into your spirit, according to Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”. And so that is the way you receive salvation and...

You know the Bible says 2 Corinthians 5:17 “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; and all things are become new”. You become a Christian once and at once you give your heart to Christ and you receive internal life into your spirit, according to Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”. And so that is the way you receive salvation andnce you receive salvation, you receive Christ into your heart, you receive internal life, you become a new creation, that’s what makes you a Christian and you become a Christian. Just like a child is born, he is a full human being. You see he is not part human being or partial human being. He doesn’t have to grow to become a full-fledged human being. See we are dealing with natures here, so you become a full-fledged Christian once you are born again but then like you said that there is this thing about baby Christian and matured Christian, Yes, there is, the bible does talk about it. In first Peter 2:2 “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word that ye may grow thereby”. You see that, which means there is growth, growth in Christianity, when you receive Christ you start out your life like a new born baby, so spiritually it’s the same thing, you start out your life like a new born baby so the bible says 1 Peter 2:2 “As new born babies, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:”. So you grow from there, the more you learn the word the more you study the word of God, the more you practice the word of God the more you grow and so that’s what the bible talks about, again that’s why we are given ministers, there are ministry gifts given to the church the body of Christ to help develop. I am going to read that to you Ephesians 4:11 “And he gave some apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; Vs 12 “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Vs 13 “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:”. You see that, so this all had to do with growth and development. In verse 4:14 “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Vs 15 “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:”. See, he expects us to grow into Christ and when he says grow up in him in all things doesn’t mean that we are now coming into Christ afresh but that in Christ we grow, so that’s what he is talking about. So, there is the reality of what you talked about baby Christians and matured Christians but matured Christians are not people who have been in Christ for a long time, it is those who have grown in Christ, they have grown in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. In fact, 2 Peter 3 talks about that and I will like to read that to you from the bible, 2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. Then also when you study 1 Corinthians 3: beginning from Chapter 2 actually, in chapter 2 then in chapter 3 he does talk about carnal Christians and spiritual Christians, bay Christians and so on if you also go into the first epistle of saint John you read in chapter 2 he does talk about children and then he says young men and then fathers. There are stages in Christianity but you are a full-fledged Christian from the day you are born again, you are as much a Christian as a matured person who has been in Christ for many years and who has grown maturely. So, you are a full-fledged Christian like a baby in the natural world is a full-fledged human being like any adults but needing to grow, so that he can live, full life, you see, live life to the full better put that way, live life to the full.
