Belief that Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again three days later. The significance of which forgives believers of sinful nature.

The evangelical right seems to me to be quite blood thirsty. Never see a war, just or not, that they dont like. They will vote for McCain who is an admitted serial adulterer. I havent heard them condemn the pregnancy of unmarried, 17 year old Bristol Palin.
How they distort Jesus message. He was a peace maker and spoke repeatedly against the sins of fornication and adultery.
And the faith-based initiative-giving our taxes to preachers--isnt that unconstitutional?

Christian means "Christ in". Having Christ in your life, and letting Him have control. It is not a religion, it's a relationship.

The commandment of God was to love Him and your neighbor in these all the law and the prophets are fulfilled.
Once you have Him within you, He will fulfill the requirements of salvation

The mark of a true Christian is his confidence in the love of Christ, and the yielding of his affections to Christ in return. A true Christian would rather miss a meal than to go one day without meditating on the Scriptures,fellowship and Prayer to Almighty God.

A Christian is a person who is a follower of Christ. Someone who beleives in the gospel and who has dedicated their life to following Christ. Understanding that there are temptations that they must overcome but no matter what the storm or temptation maybe they are dependant soley on Christ to overcome because all their trust and faith is in Him who has died for their sins. Knowing that they will have eteranl life. To God Be The Glory.

A christian is someone who would die for Jesus Christ. They glorify Jesus Christ in word, thought and action. You obey all the laws and commandments of God,not just those you agree with. You do not judge others or condemn them because they do not believe as you do. You believe in the whole bible, not parts of it that support your faith. You live by example seven days a week, not Sunday only. You pray, study the scriptures, repent daily, live honestly and avoid the evils of the world.

Being in Christ.

Accept that you are a sinner in need of a Saviour. Believe that Jesus is that Saviour, that His coming was foretold and came to pass. Repent of those sins and ask God to forgive you believing that Jesus has taken all punishment. No more punishment is necessary. Jesus paid the price IN FULL. If we believe and live by this we are SAVED.

A christian is a person who confesses Jesus as their Lord and the One who died on calvary to pay for their debt of sin. Then proceeds to have a daily prayer time with God in which they exault Him and pray for forgiveness for the other things that they have done wrong. Then they study the Bible and seek the counsel of other Christians and pray to find the church that God would have them in and then they go to it.

A follower of Jesus Christ. One who has been saved from their sins and has repented and is learning a new way to live. Despise not the (young)small beginnings. Sometimes healing has to take place before growth!

A Christian is a person who has accepted Christ as their personal Savior. (This is the ONLY way to be a Christian.)

ANOTHER REPLY, yE ARE SAVED BY grace not by works. Lest anyonr should boast; It is a gift from GOD. God Bless this day.

Being Christian means to be follower of Christ, to be His desciple. being His desciple is to do what is pleasing to Christ. i.e following His commandments. A christian should have the characterstics that Christ said anyone who believes in Him should have. for example, loving one another.
---Kuku on 11/28/05|
Christianity is the belief that Jesus died on Calvary to remove our sin-debt. It is the absolute faith that the bible is the truth and that THERE IS A GOD. It's a lot more than that but you asked for a few words.
