Can a person be a Christian and not believe in the bible?


I mean literally not just using the name? Does Christian not mean you believe the word of God literally and read it as He tells you to do? Can you call yourself Christian which of course is "of Christ" and believe just anything you want to? Could anyone tell me one scripture in the bible that says just love everybody and do whatever you want to and everyone is going to heaven? The scripture that says sin does not matter Jesus died for it so just keep on doing it even after you know Christ? I would appreciate those scriptures, thank you.

    Beth, you have a point about following Jesus. However, the gospels you speak of do not meet a criterion for authenticity--at all. Consequently, the NT is Pollyannalana's best source for knowing the true Jesus. This is a simple, historical fact.

    I just wondered because it does seem many who say they are Christian believe people who do not even believe in Christ are going to heaven too. Many also think we can go on sinning against the commandments just because Jesus died for our sins?

    bibles are not scripture. Bibles are transactions of scripture with much added that is not in scripture because the translators put their beliefs in it. Go online and find and interlinear bible (word by word translation), and see for yourself

    God said to study the scriptures to show yourself approved. I trust He has seen to it we have the right books.

    Well put Sri T. I was going to comment, but you pretty much summed it up for me.

    Organized religion is TOXIC these days.

    Amen! Then PLEASE BELIEVE the "Chronological Order" of the Bible! The New Covenant (Jer 31:31-33;Heb8:10;10:16)! "OBSERVE" the disciples (Matt 28:20)! "WAIT" for HS (Acts 1:4;2:38; 2:42)! OR Gal 1:6-9 "ACCURSED!"

    Brad: We study His teachings but Holy Spirit "brings us to it" or "reveals" TRUTH! One can "read" but only Jn 6:44 The Father draws! Holy Spirit "works" and IT"S DONE & not we ourselves! Humble oneself is the key! II Chron 7:14!

    Charlie why No? It's Scripture! Man looks at outward appearances while we are being chgd fm "glory to glory!" II Cor 3:18 while God "looks at the heart!" I Sam 16:7! Thank God for Jesus that He is not man!

    flp: Can a person be a soul (spirit) & not believe in GOD?

    Yes, but would be "ignorant" as would no belief in Parachutes!

    On the other hand you have people that believe the bible is the word of God.They claim the title of Christain

    But live a life of disbelieving that all that is written in it does not apply to them but to somebody else.

    Even Jesus obeyed Gods words

    If the Bible isn't reliable then how can Jesus Christ, God, & the ten commandments all be? There are from the Bible. The Bible is God's word. Don't believe Jesus Christ if you don't believe Bible.

    Spiritual - YES! But Bible gives instructions on what we should do to remain "anointed by God or Holy Spirit." One can "grieve the Holy Spirit" (Eph 4:30) by continuing in sin but He will not leave us! Confession & Repentance is key!

    We certainly know that, don't we, for ones to put Christians and anti Christian (anti-Christ) in the same group bound for heaven? Utterly ridiculous, isn't it? Love your fiddle picture.

    Well I am sure it is all tied together. I use to listen to a Jew turned Christian and he sure had some understanding as you can imagine. Like finding Jesus in the Old Testament and just all the knowledge he brought knowing the old into the new!
