A true Christian (in my opinion) is someone who:
(1.) Believes that Jesus Christ, God's son, humbled himself and came to the earth as a human being.
*Believes that Jesus died on a cross not for glory or fame but for the sins of all mankind.
*Believes that Jesus taught people how to live, and that he taught by example. He never sinned, although he had been tempted more than once.
*Believes that Jesus is forgiving not just once but ALWAYS, which means that if ANYONE sincerely asks him for forgiveness, he will recieve it. Also believes that Christ came for ALL PEOPLE and everybody has a chance to recieve Christ's love.
*Believes that Christ did not come to bring himself up but to bring others up and teach others to do it. He came for a reason: UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
(2.) Tries very hard to live by the things Christ taught.
*Does not act like a Christian just because they are concerned about others' opinions.
*Tries to bring people up, and not think selfishly.
*Tries not to bring people down, which includes cursing, insulting, and hurting: people of different gender, different sexual preferences, people who express themselves different than themselves, people who have hurt the person in the past, people who don't live by Christ's teachings, people who look different regarding their weight and such, people like celebrities (we are all the same as them) and many, many more...
*Tries not to judge based on what he/she sees. Can include sexual preferences, weight, hair color (what a drag that I had to say that,) skin color, and many more. This is pretty much self explanatory.
*Tries to be thankful for the things he/she has, and tries not to complain about or dwell on things that he/she doesn't have.
*Tries very hard to forgive others for the things they do, not only to the person but to themselves and others. This could be the hardest thing for a Christian to do because it's hard to get hurt feelings out of his/her mind. I myself find it hard because the things people have done come to my mind when I see them. It's hard to be forgiving but one must try. The fact that forgiveness is hard is NOT an excuse to defend his/herself with.
*Tries not to compete for attention/bragging rights, bring others down or become 'better than others' by doing all this, because that IS NOT the reason one should become a Christian. Does not act like a Christian just so he can be looked at as a better person.
*There are many other things I could say about number 2 but those are some of the most important things to me.
(3.) Tries to spread the Christian faith and be welcoming to others.
*THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE BEING VIOLENT OR INSULTING TO DO THIS. IT DOESN'T INCLUDE FORCE OR PUSHING THINGS ON OTHERS. THIS ONLY DRIVES PEOPLE AWAY AND DOESN'T HELP YOUR CAUSE AT ALL.
*It does include a little bit of talk and a lot of support. The best way to introduce the Christian faith is to just be a good friend. Being a good example of a Christian and not tainting others' opinions of one is a very important factor. Being a good role model is a perfect way to model the Christian faith.
*One must welcome others no matter what their personality or attitude is, what they wear, how they speak, what they do, or especially what they think of you. We must not pick and choose who to be welcoming to, because Christ didn't. In fact, Jesus made it a goal for himself to reach out to those who were 'low on the food chain.' He cared about people who nobody cares about.
***NOTE*** This definition was not written to be used as an excuse to bring someone down or tell them how bad they are. It is all my opinion, but I do believe it is true. I just wanted to share my opinion with you and maybe clear up some of the bad things said about them. Now let me say, nobody's perfect. Hopefully no Christian thinks they're perfect. Also I'd like to say that Christians are not all heterosexual, and they are not all afraid of or dislike homosexuals. Most importantly, at least 95% of Christians are not on a mission to prove that they are better than everyone else. That's not their prerogative. Trust me. ^-^
Do we really need an example of a Christian? Just look up and you'll see a whole lot of them. ^-^ By the way...I only put those tags on it because I had to. But...you could probably find what I'm talking about in one of those? Um...yeah.
Someone who is tired of searching their name on the internet and recieving only religion-related results, overall an awesome person, extremely intelligent and attractive
Christian searched his name on Google and ended up on the website for a local church
A person who believes that Christ is their Savior. A person who believes that Jesus of Israel was/is the Son of God and was everything He claimed to be.
Kristen was a Christian and carried her Bible everywhere she went.
a christian is someone who believes that jesus christ is the son of god and that he died for EVERYBODY'S sins. a REAL christian realizes that he/she is not perfect but tries to be more like jesus. a REAL christian wouldn't try to force their beliefs on others, so whoever thinks that obviously hasn't met a true christian. also, don't think that all christians are like george bush, cause i'm a christian and i'm not exactly a big fan of his....to say the least.
Non-Christian: So, I guess you like George Bush
Christian: Not even a little.
A boy whose nice, kind, funny, cute, and himself. Who could ask for more? He'll always be there for you no matter what happens. He can be annoying like anyone, or that you don't need him sometimes. But the absence of him drives you insane. He's been through more then you could imagine, but when your in his arms, it just feels safe because you know you have him to guide you.
But even as friends he's perfect. He will ditch even a girlfriend that tries to mess with you. You could be in love with him and see him with another girl, but as long as he's happy you're happy. Yet if he's mad at you, you feel so ashamed and as if your a burden. Over all, hes the person that you haven't lived till you see him.
When I see Christian bells ring like the sound of a moving truck backing up.
A christian is someone who has a personal relationship with God and isnt afraid to show it. It doesnt mean carrying around a bible or wearing a christian t-shirt but more of exposing the ultamite truth which is held in God's personal love letter to each individual (the bible)
A true christian doesnt say they are a christan...but they live like they are one.
Best best boyfriend a girl could ever wish for. He's considerate, caring, AMAZINGLY sweet, loving, handsome, sexy beyond belief (to sum things up). He'll come into your life when you least expect, but you'll never want him to leave once he does. He has gorgeous eyes and an amazing smile. When he holds you in his arms the world melts away. He'll turn your worst days around and make them into your best and he'll be there for you no matter what. Best thing that will ever happen to you point blank!
Christian is the Best Boyfriend Ever
a guy you can spill your guts to with no fear of anyone else finding out. the wisest idiot you have ever met. he isnt perfect, and may have made a few mistakes, but he knows it and tries to learn from it and move on. he is extremely insightful, and when you talk to him you feel like he knows exactly what you are thinking before you say it. Has the most beautiful eyes of any boy you have ever met, and you have to watch yourself so you dont end up staring.. bear hugs are always welcome, because they make you feel like you are wrapped up in love and safety no matter your current situation in life and you forget your feet are on the ground. sarcasm drips from everything he says but that just makes you adore him more. he loves music with all he is, especially hardcore. he works hard and long to provide for his future, and for that you respect him. when you need him he appears at any time of day or night. he can be full of himself and really stupid sometimes. his self-esteem level goes to the negatives and he seems to jump from girl to girl, which drives you absolutely insane, but in the end you know you will stay. he says he cares about you, but sometimes you wonder if he genuinely means it. during the hardest times of your year, you stay up late and think about your conversations. you cant help but smile. he is your guardian angel. and though the world doesnt accept him, he wants to break down the walls of stereotypes and make his mark before he goes.
christian: he doesnt love you. and you dont love him.
you:why do you say that?
christian: because we arent who we are supposed to be yet. no one is. so why fall for someone who doesnt exist?
