In response to the letter from Carol who was upset that some Payson shops don't have public bathrooms, I want to comment on her statement "a person is a Christian by their acts."
Nothing could be further from the truth. A Christian is a person who has recognized their condition as dead -- we are all born spiritually dead, without the spirit of God in us -- and has turned to the only one who could give us life, Jesus. (He's) the only one born spiritually alive, the only one who had a life to give to pay the penalty of sin and death for us, the only one who was resurrected so that he could give his life to us and live his life through us.
His life in you and me is what makes a person a Christian. It's not what you do or don't do, it is putting your faith in what he has done.
