2-18 Defeated Christians
Unfortunately far too few Christians are currently living as conquerors. The main reasons for this are probably:
- Ignorance, most Christians simply do not know how to move on, since there is not a lot of teaching about this subject in our Churches.
- As an alternative they try in their own strength to live a Christian life as good as possible. The power behind this is still the "self" and not Christ's resurrection life in us. This results in failure time after time.
- Finally there are those Christians who are kept back by their more or less conscious sins. One of these serious sins is division or heresy which still hinders the "body of Christ" from functioning more effectively here on earth.
