A local resident is one that lives in a specific location legally. An American is one that lives in America, an Egyptian is one that lives in Egypt but although he may visit American he is still an Egyptian although he may believe or like the American Lifestyle. So a Christian is not just one that believes in the Christian lifestyle, But someone that Lives in Christ,and Abides there, Not just a church visitor, a visitation is not a substitute for a relocation. So pack up yo stuff and move out of Egypt and Move in Christ, for we live,move and have our being in Him! (Acts 17:28).
