Meaning Of Becoming A Christian

What does it mean to become a Christian and stay a Christian? I don't recall ever reading Jesus or Peter or Paul telling someone, "You must be a Christian." What are the scripture references for your answer?

John 6:63, Jesus said his words he speaks are life. You must absolutely prove to your self that there is a real God,the actual spirit Personality who created and now rules the entire universe.Prove to your own satisfaction that the Bible is truly God,s inspired revelation to man. Study it, meditate on it,pray to understand it,and determine to obey God,s word to do what he say,s, keep all his laws.

I'm not actually troubled about the book. It's the principle, premise of writing a book using the 'Godly folks who can clarify for the new babes in Christ'. That book would be "Our Book". You would be the transcriber.

If God has given you a desire to write one, He is more than able to give you the words that would belong to you.

Ryan, I have never written a book yet. Maybe someday I will and I will entitle it, "Why does Ryan want to send babies and children to hell?" I don't think anyone understands why I asked this question about "staying a Christian." So never mind, but thank you for trying.

A Christian is life with Christ or living with Christ. It is being born-again, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. So that if anyone in Christ, a new Creation: the old things passed away; here, all things have become new." John 1:13; II Corinthians 5:17. Please read Luke 9:23-26; 14:26-35.

Read John 3:1-8 - Y'shua (Jesus) tells Nicodemus that he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven unless he is born again - born of the spirit.

Donna9759, This one is for you:

Ecc 12:12 But beyond this, my son, be warned: the writing of many books is endless, and excessive devotion {to books} is wearying to the body.

We freely give our time and comments to CN. You won't be using these comments without permission and claiming them as your own, will you? In other words, using what we have written for personal gain? Will your book be free, like CN?

The best book a new Christian could read, would be The Book. Man's opinions about the Word, confusion. Throw in a few of Jesse D.'s sayeth so's....whoa. God's Word is revelation with transformation.

Robert, I am asking these questions to bring clarification to new Christians. I am writing a book and as I think of these things for my book, I ask the question on here so the Godly folks on here can clarify for the new babes in Christ, is that okay with you?
---Donna9759 on 1/8/07

Christian means Christ-like, and follower (disciple) of Christ. To be like Christ and follow Him is what it means to be a Christian.

Are you thinking outloud or do you want answers for these questions. You reply with confidence to others. I read your questions with my mouth open. We have loved ones in Iraq, some here are suffering from disabilities, serious. When you share - read this Jesse book, or fling here, fling there, hit the high notes, do those items work in your trials? The questions tell of someone hurting but without deep roots that will keep you from being tossed around when the storms of life come, as they do.
