what is a christian
« on: July 08, 2007, 10:20:18 PM »
as many of you may have noticed the term christian has been watered down a lot through time. so me and my oldest sister have decided to start asking people what is a christian. so i decided to start here.

What do you think it means to be a christian? (please no contradicting others, only post what YOU think and don't try to give answers yet in this post)

after you've answered that question ask yourself what type of christian are you? (don't post this unless you feel moved to)
In Christ

"be imitators of Christ as dearly loved children" Eph 5:1.    To live a life as close to what Christ did in time with God, spreading the Gospel, and living out your faith in a way that would draw people to Him.

*Christian is a term originated to mean "little christ"*

it's not that the term has become watered down, it's that 90%(or more) of the people who call themselves Christians aren't. They don't call themselves Athiests, Muslim, Hindu, etc, so they think they are Christians since they don't fall into any other category. It's an ABUSED and misunderstood term. But I believe that I am one of that small percentage which can call myself a Christian and not be a hypocrite.

To be a Christian is to be in a relationship with the one true God.

Christianity isn't just another religion like buddhism, islam, mormonism.. it's a relationship.

So a Christian is a person that TRUELY loves God and follows his word to the dot.

A Christian is someone who follows Christ.

what a Christian is.... anyone who goes to church, thinks they're holy, trys to "lead a good life" and probably still really doesn't care.

What a CHristian should be.  A person who attempts to imitate Christ in all ways, seeking always to further His kingdom and follow His will.

that is what society and Satan would have us believe a Christian is.

that is not what a Christian should be, but what a Christian IS.
