A person who has realized that they have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and has humbly turned from their sins(the definition of repentance), and has submitted their life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and has trusted in Him(Jesus Christ) as Lord and Savior and obey Him! Notice, I say trust in Jesus Christ, the son of God alone! We don't trust in "mother" Mary, saints, a priest, the pope, the book of mormon, or anything like that.
A Christian is not someone who is merely religious, goes to church, prays prayers, reads bibles, was baptized, or any of that stuff. That stuff is good, but if there's no inward change that results in outward change and good fruit, they are not truly saved.
In addition, despite what many say, God's Grace is NOT a license or a covering for sin, and Christians are not unconditionally eternally secure. A Christian can lose their salvation by renouncing Jesus Christ, especially during times of persecution, by unrepentant willful sin, or by believing a false gospel, or by taking the Mark of the Beast during the 7 year Tribulation period when the Antichrist will be reigning and will require people to worship him and take a mark of loyalty indicating their loyalty to him(the Antichrist) in order to partake in commerce as well to avoid beheading. However, the Bible warns that if ANYONE takes the mark, regardless of the reason, they will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. Taking 666 is an unforgivable sin. Revelation 14:9-11.
The twelve Apostles, the Apostle Paul, those who have died as martyrs for the faith, the future Tribulation Christians who endure to the end by refusing to take the 666 mark despite the pressures of social rejection, persecution, possible torture, starvation, and the death penalty.
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 misinterpreted, misunderstood faith. as you can see in many entries below. Christianity HAS been used to do things in "The Name of God" that God would never have wanted (ie. killing your parents, raping small children and mothers, stalkers, racial segregation etc.) But to give a perfect definition of Christianity - you would have to read the New Testament of the Holy Bible and see how Jesus Christ lived. He is the perfect definition of Christianity...afterall, that's where it all started. Before judging Christians, please meet a REAL one (a down-to-earth one) to show you what it's all about. Not with words, but in their actions.
NOT A CHRISTIAN: *Person standing on a box, screaming, "YOU ARE GOING TO HELL"*.
A REAL CHRISTIAN: A person who is humble, who shows by their ACTIONS louder than their WORDS that they have something different(Jesus).
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 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.
People who follow Christ as the centre of their beliefs. They should accept that they are not perfect and that they need the love and forgiveness of Jesus to become whole again. They believe that they can have a personal relationship with Jesus.
Christians are not to be mistaken for hypocrites who follow a holier-than-thou attitude to life. Real Christians are humble and give all the praise back to Jesus.
"all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God" (Romans 3:23)
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.
