I sometimes answer, "well, yes I am! But if you receive Christ, you can be holy too!"

Quote:
Those who are God's children and are born of God, are of a more noble and celestial spirit than men of the world. They 'set their minds on things above, not on earthly things' (Colossians 3:2). 'Whoever is born of God, overcomes the world' (1 John 5:4). The children of God live in a higher region. They are compared to eagles (Isaiah 40:31), in regard of their sublimeness and heavenly-mindedness. Their souls are fled aloft. Christ is in their heart (Colossians 1:27) and the world is under their feet (Revelation 12:1). Men of the world are ever tumbling in thick clay. They are 'sons of earth'; not eaglesóbut earthworms. The saints are of another spirit. They are born of God and walk with God as the child walks with the father. 'Noah walked with God' (Genesis 6:9). God's children show their high pedigree in their heavenly life (Philippians 3:20). -- Thomas Watson

There is certainly some evangelistic purpose in giving the unexpected answer rather then trotting out the usual cliches - just this Sunday gone I was preaching on Luke 6:43-49 and I set up a situation where I had created the impression I was saying Christians are better then non believers - and then I used the washing of the disciples feet to illustrate that we only need to come to Jesus for our feet to be washed because we have already been washed all over - however the unbeliever has not been washed in such a way - and you need to be!
