Is it possible to have the mind of Christ while alive? Many deny it possible. We all think that in heaven we will be holy in character, but such a thought means that death will do something for us that Christ cannot do. That statement alone should be sufficient to make us believe that a life of holiness is possible now.
Can we have Christ’s holy mind today? Yes, by understanding that there is a difference between being blameless and faultless. Paul wrote, “That you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish.” Many stop there and say, “Yes that will be heaven.” But continue the verse, “in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation.” That isn’t heaven, it sounds like Phoenix, Az., “among whom you are seen as lights in the world,” (Phil 2:15).
The New Testament never suggests that it is possible for the Christian to be faultless. That will happen, “At last, when the work is all done, when the Potter has perfectly molded the vessel to ultimate perfection, then we shall be faultless. He will present us faultless before the throne.” The New Testament says that we can be blameless. When you accept Jesus as your savior your become blameless.
