Is someone only a Christian until they screw up?


Many are saying the horrible things happen because of lack of God. Many people who do bad grow up in the church and as an adult suffer a break and do something bad. My question to Christians is this, is someone only Christian until they do something horrible? It seems many Christians boot people out the second they do something wrong.

    The theory of "once saved always saved" is a heretical concept, promoted by only a few. Scripture clearly states, "Be thou faithful unto death and you shall have a crown of life." A Christian is called to a life of faithfulness...not perfection.

    Would you also agree that if one chooses to continue living for sin after receiving the knowledge of salvation - that there remains "no more sacrifice for sin"?

    Got it: go to church, but don't worry about doing anything good for anybody. That's probably the most honest Christian answer I've ever heard. I see that even mentioning good deeds as a sign of spritual health warranted a snidey emoticon

    There are some behaviors that cannot be allowed to fester within a church community...practicing homosexuality and sexual promiscuity are just two of them. What is important is that the church community does not allow sin to flourish around them.
