What is a Christian?

this thread is about how the society is bending over backwards to appease everyone (mostly muslims it seems) yet everyone else is sacrificing so they can be happy.
i call myself a christian because of what i believe, i believe that is real, he knows me, he knows me like i know the back of my hand.

I think he uses me the way i am and i am happy the way i am.

Im not going to feel bad because of the "sins" i commit. again, he knows me, if i was all that bad, he could've taken me when he had the chance.


i dont go to church, , i dont really believe in church, i think church is a bussiness and the preachor is the salesman. I have my time with when i feel its right. I dont feel getting dressed up in my best suit, going and giving money to the "salesman" is going to get me in heaven. knows my heart, he will be the one to judge, no one else

I'm not a christian. I believe but don't practice which means I can have a ll the faith in in the world but as long as i openly sin with no repentence I'm not a true christian.

you said in the other thread you you drink smoke before marriage and etc. things you KNOW are wrong yet you do them anyway. do you still think you'r ea real christian.

that's what faith without works in dead. you can know all you want of the bible and etc and have all the faith that it's right and that jesus and are who you should be worshiping. but if you don't put into action what he asks you to do then you're still not in gods favour because faith without works is dead.

knows we are humans and he knows we will sin, but you have to remember to ask for forgiveness and not make the same mistakes again. We do a lot of things that are sins doesn't mean we are not Christians, or Catholics, etc.

it's on thing to sin and ask for forgiveness but to constantly do it over and over and know you're sinning when you do it then claim Christianity if bringing reproach on the whole religion.

If he has his own personal time with in the privacy of his own home, that's still considered dead??

Not trying to stir , but I think that he has made a decision that works best for him.

I think that's true but if you sin, ask for repentence and then willfully keep sinning do you think he forgives so easily the next time. I think there is a difference in making a mistake and willfully sinning with no remorse.

not about that. but about he saying he drinks smokes and has before marriage. alice said it right in the other thread. it could be summed up as

WWJD?

would he choose war under any circumstances would he carry guins would he have before marriage would he........this and that??? if he wouldn't then a true christians shouldn't be doing it.

No, that's why I said to not make the same mistake again.

I think it comes down to attitudes vs. behaviors. Paniro is saying live it. 1Arm's saying he just "believes" in it. Or at least that's what I've drawn.
