Two kinds of Believer, Which do you fall in?

As an Individual, we all have something or someone, we believe in, either you are a Christian, Muslim, Buddhists just to mention a few, we all have something or someone we believe in, But do we actually believe totally on that person? we are taught to believe wholly on Christ as a christian.

Pardon me if you are not a Christian and you are reading this article right now, because the article might be referring to christian believers, but if you want to use this , you can actually use this for your own assessment.

Today's post actually is part of my church Sunday School topics, but i will be writing about it in my own perspective. and the title was not "two types of believer, which do you fall in?" It was actually titled Jesus Christ Healing Ministry On Earth" it talked about the kinds of Believers that really got healed by Jesus. That was how i coined the title for this article.

WHO IS A BELIEVER?
A believer is a person who believes that a specified thing is effective, proper, or desirable.
he or she gives consideration to something or someones, to be true and therefore worthy of one’s trust,belief etc.

the Greek word for believe is pisteuo pronouced as pist-yoo’-o   meaning;  to have faith (in, upon, or with respect to, a person or thing), i.e. credit; by implication, to entrust (especially one’s spiritual well-being to Christ):–believe(-r), commit (to trust), put in trust with.

THE TWO KINDS OF BELIEVER
 Firstly i will say that this is not or might not be generally accepted but from my own point of view i believe that there are two kinds, and if you have any other kinds or types, you can drop it in the comment below.
okay what are the two kinds of believer?

1. THE SENSED RULED BELIEVER
          the sensed ruled believer is a person who does not wholly accept something or someone to be true and worthy of his or her trust. therefore they do not believe but depend on their senses and understanding.
now applying this to Christians,  these are people who doesn't believe in Jesus Christ wholly and his promises. They believe he exists and he still exist but they can't just have total faith in him. they proclaim that they are a believer but this does not reflect from that attitude.

2. THE FAITH RULED BELIEVER   
gotten from google
            You can guess what this kind of believer day to day living will look like? you right, they have total faith in Christ, they depend on God wholeheartedly, this kinds of believers are the ones who are not ashamed of the Gospel, and they believe the word of God. when God said it is finished, they believe it is finished, when God they will make it and be successful, they believe in it.

After reading this, you alone know which part you fall into, if fall into the first one, please take some time and praying asking God to help you believe in him total for you every need.

and if you fall into the second type, congratulations, but do not loose faith in christ but continue to be with him till he returns.

shalom.
