A person who believes at least the following:
There is one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible, and one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who for men and their salvation came down and was made man, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried, and the third day rose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father where he shall judge the quick and the dead.
In addition to these universal beliefs held by all Christians, they may also hold various, sometimes hotly contested, beliefs regarding literal interpretation of the scripture; the meaning and timing of baptism; the value and scriptural authority of confession, Eucharist, priests, bishops, or the church itself; and the necessity to proselytize one's faith. Many who hold one opinion on these matters deny that anyone who holds a different opinion are "real Christians".
Christians believe in the divinity of Jesus.
An ignorant hypocrit.
Christian bitch: "Its sinful to have piercings, because your body is a temple."
Me: "So why do you have your ears pierced?"
Christian bitch: "Oh, well ear piercings are OK."
Christian bitch: "That band is a bunch of devil worshippers because they use distorted guitars, and growling vocals."
Me: "What if I told you that they are a 'christian' metal band?"
Christian bitch: "Impossible. All music that isnt gospel is devil worship."
Me: "Wow. You christians certainly make me laugh."
One who has received God's FREE gift of Salvation (eternal life in heaven) as a result of having faith in God and having faith in Jesus Christ who died on the Cross as atonement for the sins of every man/woman.
Many people in the world claim to be Christians; however, they really probably aren't.
If you are NOT a Christian, then you will spend eternity in hell. Think about eternity. It's pretty long. Would you want to live FOREVER in heaven with God in a place full of joy? Or, would you want to live in Hell with Satan in eternal pain and misery? Consider your options while you still have the chance.
1. noun - a member of a religion
who believes that Jesus was the son of God
and was placed on earth to save humanity from its sins. There are many doctrines besides this central tenet that are either rejected or accepted by any number of Christian sects, or denominations.
Most Christians believe in kindness to their fellow man, charity, a basic moral code (Ten Commandments
), and reciprocity (Golden Rule
). Also, many Christians believe in aggressively attempting to convert non-Christians to their thinking, since Christians believe that pagan
s will all go to hell
when they die.
Unfortunately, Christians have a poor track record of sticking to their beliefs, and throughout history have used the religious estalishment of Christianity
to perpetuate evil as well as good upon the world. Christians are often stereotyped as self-righteous, hypocritical, and willfully ignorant in addition to any positive traits instilled by their religion.
2. adjective - pertaining, related, part of, or similar to Christianity

That guy over there totally looks like a Christian, tall, dark, handsome.. Yep deffinately a Christian
A person who has a relationship with the one true God and is saved by the grace of Jesus Christ and believes in Him.
Christianity IS NOT a RELIGION.
It is a relationship, if you know what i mean, but most probably don't, which is sad.
Catholicism is not Christianity, which many mistake it for or the "same as."
If you take Jesus Christ out of Christianity, than it doesn't make sense. If you take allah out of muslim or buddha out of buddhism or if you take ANY leader out of that particular religion and you do that with ALL the other religions that exist in the world, than all of it's "rules" or "foundations" or whatever still make sense based on it's belief, which would be a false belief anyway.
Christianity is true, all other beliefs or religions aren't, because what do they base their faith on?
