    Has anyone ever met a real christian?

    what I mean is have you met a person that actually goes by what the religion teaches. a person that doesn't lie, judge,steal,isn't vain,loves thy neighbor, etc., etc., because I personally haven't.

    Is there really a real Christian? There are many interpretations of a "Real Christian" that does anyone really know what a real christian is?

    The fact is that to be a real christian one must worry about there own personal walk with there chosen God and there chosen belief system.

    Does this mean that I or you have to agree with the moral and ethical practice of someone else? The answer is simple NO!

    This is why we are given the right to befriend someone or stay away from them..

    Has anyone ever met a real Christian?  That’s a hard question to answer, because Jesus said:

          “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will.’”

    So, I guess you will just have to go where they are.  “Where’s that, you say?”
    Well who’s doing God’s will?  That’s where they are, but Jesus gave another clue: 

          “By this all will know that are my disciples, (or Christian) if you have love among yourselves.” (John 13:35)

    I don't think there is. It's an ideal that people are suppose to aspire to rather than try to be perfect. That's my take on it but I'm sure people who practice Christianity will have their own thoughts on this.

    Personally I haven't met anyone who fits this description and I don't think I would want to. Who wants to have a relative or friend who is a goody-goody? It would be tedious and so stressful having to try and act nice all the time when they were around. I much prefer being the more realistic 'normal' sometimes good/sometimes bad human.

    I've never met any of the Westboro Baptist Church members before, no, but I imagine it wouldn't be a rewarding experience to say the least. They follow Judeo-Christian "scripture" from the King James Bible articulately, regardless of how immoral and frivolous the details may be. At least they take the whole "expect persecution" excerpt literally too.

    All the time!  We are all human, and some Christians make mistakes.  But all Christians are forgiven and covered in the precious blood of Jesus.

    Maybe you haven't been hanging out in the right place!

    God Bless,

    I would have to say YES. I hope you get your chance, and that you too come to faith in Christ so that when you look into the mirror you will see what you are looking for... A "real" Christian, when your focus goes to who Jesus is and what He did, it is no longer about others measuring up to your expectations. so then you will see them not for what they do, but rather for who they are Children Loved by God, precious and beloved.. Such as Yourself...

    My grandmother also followed what she believed of the bible, never a mean word and always teaching love and understanding.Sometimes people would take advantage but most people respected the way she was. She never spanked me and I spent lots of time at their home, she had a way of making you feel bad if you did something wrong without even punishing you. She is the only person I ever met that lived their life that way.

    Yes, I certainly have.  He was and is a very flawed human being - but he put his money where his mouth is, and went bankrupt, gifting $35,000.00 a month to provide for drug addicts like myself to have a place to stay, and something to eat, etc, etc, etc.

    You can see him here:

    Rusty Fleming, the film they are discussing, I did virtually all the research for.

    Based on your definition of your question, no.  But, I would think based on the definition the question should be ' Has anyone met a perfect Christian?'

    I would have to ask, what is the definition of real?  I can follow God's word and be living right for eight years, and in the midst of doing something someone asks me a question like, "Did you eat breakfast today?"
    And if I did not eat and answer by saying "Yes" because I am not paying attention, and then realize I answered the question wrong,  I have in essence told a lie, but not on purpose.  Does that mean I am not a real Christian?
