well in my thread i asked the question what is a christian. i've had a few reply's. i said in my thread i was not a christian or follow any other religion, but thats not to say i don't believe in a god. my own thoughts about being a christian are, that as a individual you follow christ, you follow his examples and teachings. jesus was a very humble man, so i would say if you are a christian then, you would be a humble person. the bible says at 1 corinthians 15-33. well read it for yourselfs. well it warns you about bad association, and how it mite put you on the wrong track. so if any so called christians are using this site, is not that bad association. your thoughts. stay safe.

A dictionary definition of a Christian would be something similar to “a person professing belief in Jesus as the Christ or in the religion based on the teachings of Jesus.” While this is a good starting point, like many dictionary definitions, it falls somewhat short of really communicating the biblical truth of what it means to be a Christian. The word “Christian” is used three times in the New Testament (Acts 11:26; 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. The word “Christian” literally means, “belonging to the party of Christ” or a “follower of Christ.”
