Part 1 of 2
Most people are passive, when it comes to their spiritual life. They do not commit themselves to a daily study, and therefore never learn the truth of what is expected of them. That means, they miss out on the many opportunities and blessings that are available to them. They ignore Gods mandates, and/or they pretend that what God expects does not apply to them, and/or they presume, wrongly, that whatever it is that they do, is what God wants.
This is one form of being an evil doer, as it applies to Christians, that ignore their responsibilities and obligations of the Christian life.
As for non-christians, or unbelievers as they are often times called, then the path of disobedience, is more clear. They have not believed in Christ and therefore are not Christian, and therefore do not have a relationship with God.
The Bible typically refers to them as enemies of God, aliens, foreigners, strangers, out-casts, heathen, and other similar terms.
All of these terms, refer to people who ignore Christ, and therefore ignore truth. And when you ignore truth, then you operate on untruth, or the lies and distortions of the world. And in that case, you can adopt anything you want to believe and make it into your truth.
That makes life convenient, but it is a convenience that is delusional and detached from reality.
And the unfortunate thing is, that you will never discover your error until you die and leave this world. Then you discover that the realities of life go far beyond this physical world.
There is a God and a devil and a battle for supremacy over creation. And to go through life pretending that you know of these things, but ignoring them as you focus on the immediate world around you, then presuming that everyone else is delusional about God and spiritual things, while you firmly believe that you are the wise one in a world where you define your own destiny, and that anything beyond this life is whatever you want to believe.
And so we have the mixture of beliefs in this world. All of which will never be clear until the end of ones life.
Then the realities of life will hit home and the retributions that await true ignorance, will become a harsh reality. One that will last forever.
So, we have evil doers, who are Christian, but dysfunctional. And we have evil doers that are not Christian.
