1) someone who believes in Christ Jesus and has asked Him to come into their heart.

2) someone who isn't perfect but knows that he/she is forgiven by a God who is.
"That guy over there is a recovering drug-addict and used to abuse his spouse, but he's trying hard to change... so according to this definition, he's still a Christian. Just maybe not a great one."

A person who knows that he or she isn't perfect, but has came to the realization that he or she doesn't have to feel the guilt of sin anymore because Jesus took care of it. A Christian is a person who follows by Jesus' law: "Love on another," which is the only commandment he has asked us to do. A Christian is a person who follows in Jesus' footsteps:

Hangs out with anyone: the drunks, the theifs, the prostitutes.
Prays for everyone: forgives.
Does not take revenge, but does pray for his or her enemies.
Just because a Christian may gossip doesn't mean that he or she isn't a Christian or a hypocrite. It means that we're still human; that we're still learning to be like Him.
A Pharisee is like a judgemental leader. You should look into that. Make sure you don't think that all Christians are like the Pharisees. The Pharisees were the religious leaders who killed Jesus.
Jesus was a perfect being. He was the son of God; he IS the song of God. He is God! He will always be there. Just as he was thousands of years ago, he still is today.
person1: I'm a Christian?

person2: don't go preachin' to me damn foo.
Person1: but you don't understand...

People who follow Christ. Those who accept the fact that God incarnate in man suffered and died for their sins so that their worthless, vile, disgusting, and completly undeserving souls could go be with Him in Heaven. Christians do not save themselves through their own actions (contrary to the popular belief that Christians need to be "perfect"...if they were, then why would they need Christ?).

BTW: Christians are the number one reason why Christianity is not followed, misunderstood, hated or basically ignored.
I am a Christian and the world hates me but that's ok because I want nothing that this world has to offer.

everyday people. christians arent bible hugging, insane church going freaks. yes we have our beliefs and we have faith in God, but we are normal people just like everyone else. so for anyone who thinks christians are crazy church praying robots. look around. i bet 1 in 5 people you know are christians. so dont judge people on their religion
bob: i met this HELLA hot girl. we made out and then she told me she was christian.

friend: lets go to church ;]

a lot of people have been hurt by Christians who are not following the message of Jesus. take, for example, Westboro Baptist church in Kansas that is saying "God hates gays."
FALSE! God Loves every single one of us! in the Holy Bible it says that God loves us so much he sent his only son(John 3:16), Jesus Christ, to die which he did while we were still sinners (Romans 5:8). This point is what most Christians mis-convey, people don't need to be perfect to be saved because only one man could do that, but God loves us for who we are!
For those of you who still think God hates gays-- the Bible says that you will therefore be judged more harshly. (Matthew 7:1)

so, please dont let a couple of mislead Christians keep you from having a personal relationship with God

christians are believers of a faith based on little more than a 2000 year-old book that could have been written by anyone. christians believe in such scientifically impossible items/events as a virgin birth, a talking snake and a tale about a man surviving 3 days inside a fish. their religion has very little pull in reality and frankly makes little sense.

most christians are a hypocritical bunch and love to pass judgement on others even though such an act is condemned by their 'bible'. an easy example of this is their annoying tendancy to meddle in other people's sexuality when it has no effect on themselves.

christians believe that a being they call 'god' resides up in the sky and when you die, if you repent and blah blah blah you be accepted into the kindgom of heaven. if you are a sinner and do not accept christ, you are damned to 'hell' which is described as a lake of fire.

christianity, like many other religious sects or cults practises the always humble act of genocide and are more than happy to kill you because your religion doesn't match theirs. too bad christianity is just the numberless draft of the exact same story, used for the basis of almost every other religion.
(1) man: i was born gay and have finally found the courage to be honest with myself.

christian: you filthy fag, rot in hell.

(2) christian: you are a terrible person for not believing in the lord, he will smite you and such.

girl: that's funny 'cause it says right here in the bible when you judge others, you condemn yourself. enjoy 'hell'. lol.
