The theologian, A.A. Hodge wrote about the differences between true and false believers. Here is a chart complied from his writings that summarizes some of the differences.


  • Open to honest evaluation
  • Grows increasingly humble
  • Desires to be more holy
  • Desires a closer walk with God


  • Avoids any real evaluation
  • Grows increasingly proud
  • Not concerned about holiness
  • Does not care about a walk with God

Take time to honestly examine your own life. Does your life bear the marks of the life of God in you? If it does, then these characteristics will be present. If you find yourself in the other category, would you be honest about the deficiency of your experience and cry out to God for His salvation?
