    There are so many on this forum who see things differently when it comes to drinking, manner of dress at church, smoking, cussing, what is wholesome music both socially and worship speaking, social activities, even what kind of employment the perfect believer should shun, etc.? :wavey:

    So, this is the post you've been waiting for! It gives you the chance to list what you believe the "perfect" believer should look like inside and out. :thumbs:

    JESUS! I thought everybody knew that!

    Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

    There are no perfect Christians, and no need for perfect Christians. The term itself is an oxymoron.

    We find the greatest grace in our imperfection. The only perfection is found in Christ.

    Yes, but, ...not to a few who post on here.

    RD2, once..., in my younger days, and I hate to admit it, but I tried snortin' coke. Yes, I did.

    ...almost choked to death on the chipped ice.

    Ain't going there no mo'!

    AMY G ....the winner...lol.

    How do we get there>>..

    Active obedience , obeying the law of God, keeping the heart, mortifying sin, then presenting the gospel joyfully.....:thumbsup::wavey:
    22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

    23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

    24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

    25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

    26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
    27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

    20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

    21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

    22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

    23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
    24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

    25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

    26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

    27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

    7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
    8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.

    9 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
    10 The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

    11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.
