“The Real Deal” from 1 John 3:4-12. There are clearly defined desires and a clearly seen nature in those who have been born again in Christ. Their efforts of life are turned from hate and sin to a life of love and righteousness. If these key markers that identify them as having a real relationship with God are missing then they are not children of God. To define and expose the false convert is a simple as looking of the fruit of their lives. One who has been born of God has the nature of God. One who is of the devil has a sinful nature.
