Christian maturity is not based on the years that a person has been born again, it is a state of mind and the knowledge of the Word of God the person has. Just like a new born baby is to be nurtured, protected amd fed, so is a new born christian. But some christians tend to think that they are now mature and start acting like big babies. They will not do what the leader says, refuse instructions. This are characteristics of a spiritual babe, this is one of the ways to know a spiritual babe. Some children act that way, wearing mums or dads clothes, feeling grown up, but inside still a baby. Such people need to grow up.
Amen and amen! Its really needful sister mary to speak and discuss these things you know. we ought to and must walk in love.
Love keeps no record of wrongs but yet we tend to keep either a conscious or unconscious 'black book' akin to the 'black box' of an aircraft! Haa! it ought not so to be brethren! I refuse to remember past wrongs against me! Am too sweet for that, Glory to God! I walk in love!!!
