Who are you? Do you really know the answer to such a question? Should or could it be rephrased, Whose are you?
Whose? Yes whose, whether or not you accept that your life here will extend into eternity or not, it will. From the Biblical narrative you belong to either GOD, our Creator, or self & Satan. For this writer no other religious belief matters; as a Christian, my faith and hope is founded in Jesus the Christ, His sinless life, ministry, sacrificial death on the cross, & His resurrection from death.
The “who” is relative to yourself, your soul, & your eternal destiny. Who are you? A hedonist or a moralist? Are you thinking of yourself in a way which makes you better than this one or another?
“At least I’m not like him or her, I know better.”
“Look at him/her, evil to the core.”
“Did you know such & such are like this, I’m glad we aren’t.”
“That person is such a liar.”
On and on it goes for the moralist, one who is comparing themselves with themselves. If you think your own righteousness will look good in the eyes of our Creator, think again.
In Isaiah 54:6. But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Take it from the prophets, all of our own self-righteousness is nothing before GOD.
For the moralist this is hard to fathom, their entire world is based on how good they seem to be, while believing their Savior approves of their ways in the end they’ll hear this:
Matthew 7:21. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity
So who are you? Or Whose are you?
