The real Christian worships Christ the only Lord God, and converting to his body the Christian becomes born-again and sanctified, and obeys all that he commands.
---Eloy on 3/17/08


Those who have been obedient to the Word of God and followed the plan of salvation according to God's way and not our own.From that point we turn our lives over to Jesus and are growing and learning to love,honor and obey God everyday in every way.Learning to love others also. Looking for the return of Christ soon.Whether in this body or not.

The word Christian is used three times in New Testament (Acts 11:26, Acts 26:28, 1 Peter 4:16). Followers of Jesus Christ were first called Christians in Antioch (Acts 11:26) because their behavior, activity, and speech were like Christ. A Christian is someone who has been born-again by God (John 3:3, John 3:7, 1 Peter 1:23) and has put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

John 13:34,35. "...By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves." This is Agape love, love guided by principle.It involves loving those who do not necessarily love you.God expressed this love to the most superlative degree when allowing his son to die for "the world"(Jo.3:16) of mankind,some of whom still remain alienated from him.

A true Christian is someone who has repented of his or her sin and put faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone. Their trust is not in following a religion or a set of moral codes, or a list of dos and donts.
---Court7646 on 2/29/08




A true Christian is a person who has put his or her faith and trust in the person of Jesus Christ and fact that He died on the cross as payment for sins and rose again on the third day to obtain victory over death and to give eternal life to all who believe in Him. Read John 1:12 Also,the mark of a true Christian is love for others and obedience to Gods Word (1 John 2:4, 1 John 2:10).

Wivv::"How do I meet Gods standard" My answer is different to yours.He said "FOLLOW ME"how?"Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is Perfect". Perfection comes from Practice Change ask any athelete who is striving for the goal of Perfection.watch any toddler who is learning to walk.ask any Bride who is choosing Her wedding Gown.

For starters: Obedience to God. Heeding to His voice. Sufferings ofcourse, goes along with it.
---catherine on 2/7/08


Coming to the realization that you can't possibly meet the standard God as established for you to get into heaven. (Or to reword it, you are a sinner.) When you realize this, the next step is to ask, "how do I do meet God's standard?" Answer, through Christ, who fulfilled the standard for each of us. Than you accept Christ sacrifice of dying for us as sufficient. Christ and only Chist is able to make it possilbe for you to get to heaven. Read the Gospel of John, chapter 3 verse 16.
---wivv on 2/6/08


A christian is one who follows Christ..Who will die for the sake of the gospel..for to live is Christ to die is gain..A christian is one who knows God's word and never ceases to praise the Lord by giving up their lives in surrender to the Lord.

No one can live the Christian life except Christ Jesus himself. If you try to live the christian life, you will find yourself that it's impossible. As he says I came that you might have life, (who's life?) his life. He came for you, to give his life to you, so that he can live his life through you. Only one thing to do! Be available to the living Christ who now lives in and through you. That's it. In other words get out of his way.Let Him accomplish what he wants to do through you, not the other around.
---Mike on 1/4/08


To be a Christian, or among the saved from condemnation by the sacrifice of Christ is based on no work that we can do. In fact, it is based on the work we can't do. We can't live up to being "good enough". Christ did for us what we could not by fulfilling the law, paying the penalty for our sin, and defeating death. He offers this salvation to all who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior.
---Robert on 1/1/08


Salvation is an event, then the Sanctification process begins. Prior to my life with Christ, no words could have explained what it meant, but living it is a different story-abundant life everlasting, beginning now.
---Robert on 1/1/08


A real Christian first of all must have the living God in them. And that person is willing to suffer with Jesus for Righteousness sake and learn to enjoy it. Not like the world thinks of enjoyment. I mean we do not jump up and down and clap our hands. For righteousness sakes. Only true Christians will see God all the rest will see Satan. No matter what religion or belief you have.
---catherine on 1/1/08


Being a Christian is not a religion, but a way of living. A life style modeled after our one and only Lord Jesus Christ. To be a Christian, you must walk in Christ footsteps every waking moment, you must speak His Words, and think His thoughts. A Christian tries becomes like Christ daily, giving Glory to God. There is no real or not, you either are or arent a Christian.
---LaLupe on 1/1/08


A Real Christian is one that "obeys" Christ commandments -turn from sin, beleives in His death, burial ressurection for us and filled with the Holy Spirit and surrenders their life daily forever to Him as His servant to study His instructions and testify to others about Him. Matt 28:19/Acts 2:38

*He does that does the will of God abides for ever 1 John 2:17

They are saved from God's wrath (Hell and the 2nd death). They are set apart as at one ment with God in peace. (John 3:16-18)

The word Christian is only mentioned 3 times in the Bible. Every time it is mentioned, it is a word used to describe Messianic Jew (meaning follower of Christ or Christ-like) -NOT a religion like we use it today. True Christians are known by their fruit the Bible says - being Christ-like, and a follower of Christ.
---Leslie on 12/30/07


Someone who has accepted Jesus as Savior and tries their best to live as HE did.

The problem is that you are trying to append adjectives to being a Christian. You are either a Christian or you are not, appended adjectives mean nothing. I makes no difference if the appended tern is Real, Born Again, Spirit Filled or any denominational name. God chooses whom ever he wants and that happened prior to the creation of the world. So lets cut the my Christian group is better than your Christian group stuff and get on with the tasks that God has in mind for you to personally accomplish.

Find a mirror, because that's the only person we can account for.
---Pharisee on 12/29/07


Acts 11:26 says the "disciples were first called Christians at Antioch." It doesn't say GOOD disciples or the BEST disciples or PERFECT disciples.

It also says "were called", not "called themselves". In other words, "Christian" was a label put on them from outsiders.
