The Purpose?

Definition of Diagnostic Test or Evaluation

A DISTINCTIVE SYMPTOM OR CHARACTERISTIC:  A SIGN OR INDICATION OF SYMPTOMS THAT ONE IS IN NEED OF SPIRITUAL HELP

An administered test designed to identify weaknesses in the christian life of holiness.

An in-depth evaluation with a relatively narrow scope of analysis, aimed at identification of a specific condition or problem

From Luke 3 John has been teaching to the crowd of people who have been coming to hear him tell them how they can be ready for the Messiah who is coming to Israel.

Most believed they were already ready for the coming of the Messiah. They just wanted to know how they might have a part of the Kingdom that He was going to establish.   They believed that they were already IN the Kingdom family, and they were only  wanting to know how how to have a good position in the Kingdom administration.

John tells them right up front that they were not even IN the Kingdom.  They were not even ready for the coming of the Messiah!   He said they must first REPENT, be baptized and show fruits of repentance.

Evaluation 1We tend to give ourselves a self-evaluation of ourselves.  Often we only see what we want to see.  As did the people who came to hear John  But John gives them a clear description of what they needed to do in order to be ready for the coming of the Messiah

He gives six ways to know if they had really truly REPENTANT.
