This is a question from a skeptic. Here’s the answer:
I do know Christ personally. He guides and directs my life. I have a carnal mind just like you do; however that carnal mind is not me. I am the Christ who lives in me. I’m in the process of dying to myself, to my carnal mind. If this sounds strange, get a Bible and ask God to reveal Himself to you as you read. He’ll begin to explain this to you if you are sincere, respectful, and persistent. Who knows, you may even humble yourself to the point where you ask Christ to forgive your sins and to begin the same process of leading and changing you. Then, you will know Christ personally.
