Abstract, if you believe in the message, that is to say if you abide by all the commandments and directives laid down by God yet you don't take Christ, the Son of God as your savior, you are no different than the rich man that came to Jesus and asked what must he do.
If you are just looking for a good way to live, by all means that is a good way; the best. If you are looking for the salvation that we all need as none can pay the price on our own, then you'll have to accept Christ as the Son of God and your savior. By doing so, then you are a Christian. Not by what you say a Christian should be. In other words, its the Bible's definition of Chrtistianity that counts, not your own. Thus saith a Christian.

If you love your neighbour as yourself you are a true disciple of King Jesus. And if you love God from all of your heart, all of your might and all of your soul, you are one of his children. Why complicate things? Try rather to simplify.

Jesus, the son of God.
Not the Son of God- see the difference?
A man once asked Jesus what he needed to do to be promised eternal life.
Jesus said to him love God with all your heart and love your neighbors and you will surely have eternal life.
That's good enough for me.

I feel that religion has been used as a tool to control the masses. I'm totally pulling stuff out of my ass on this theory, but you never know. Aliens have been manipulating us for ages using religions. They have totally diverted our attention towards them, and control us through religion. They don't want us to know the truth. Throughout all of history man has always been fighting, and religion has always played a role in it somehow. What if the aliens feel it is time for us to know the truth, and finally told a group of people. These could be the Illuminati who now do their bidding on Earth. They will be saved when the aliens come, while the rest of humanity suffers. Just my rant, and I'm not going to try to back it up.
