If someone says they are a Christian, should I trust them?


When he came to Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, not believing that he really was a disciple. But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. He told them how Saul on his journey had seen the Lord and that the Lord had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had preached fearlessly in the name of Jesus. Acts 9:26-27


            When Paul became a Christian, people had a hard time accepting him. But, over time and with support from others, like Barnabas, he was trusted.
            Time always proves someone’s faith.  That time spent with a person, witnessing their actions, hearing their heart, watching how they interact with others, it all speaks volumes about a person’s faith.  Even then, we never really know for sure.  There’s always shocking surprises.
