How do you define the word "Christian"?


The word Christian is used so casually anymore. I often wonder if people really understand what it means to be a true Christian. Is it just all about religion, or is there a deeper meaning? I am curious to hear your thoughts.

    It's putting in a nutshell, but very funny answer. Christian is not simply getting christened. He should be a believer and practitioner of all good values of Christianity.

    So, in your definition, you do not have to be a good person to be a Christian? That's interesting. I have never heard anybody say something like that before.

    Very interesting information. I would be careful, though, posting the part that is from an unpublished hub as once you publish that hub, you could have a problem with duplicate content!
