8 Bible Verses Warning Against Being A 'Lukewarm' Christian

Jesus made some very harsh warnings about being a lukewarm Christian. That is, a Christian who is not fully committed to following Christ in every area of their life. Christianity really is 'all or nothing' said Jesus, so we should take these 8 Bible verses, provided by Alannah Francis at Christian Today, very seriously when it comes to assessing whether we are completely devoted to our savior.

1. 1 John 2:15-16
"Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world."

2. Titus 1:16
"They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good."

3. Matthew 7:21-23
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'"

4. Luke 6:46
"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?"

5. Revelation 3:15-16
"I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth"

6. 1 Corinthians 13:2
"If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing."

7. 2 Corinthians 13:5
"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?"

8. Isaiah 29:13
"The Lord says: 'These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.'"
