Having never met a person before, how would you determine if they are a practicing Christian?
You would have to ask them. If you are a practicing Christian yourself, then you are of course more likely to meet other practicing Christians who move in the same social circles. You can't tell from the way people act, dress and talk as there are of course many good people from all backgrounds who don't adhere to christian beliefs and values but who are still modest in their dress and polite and courteous to others, so there is no way of telling. Just ask them.
"Practicing Christians" are not always the people who might say they are Christians. Asking is a good start. It might take a little more to determine whether or not they actually practice the faith they can claim.
."Asking is a good start??" Never would I boldly ASK " R U a Christian?" None of my business. ZERO! even less my business if they're "practicing Christians!" If people choose 2 offer info, fine. But even then, not my business to pry or spy! Never.
you can know the first thing they will say is what is your religion, whether you heard about jesus christ, then you know what they are up to
I would see if they practiced the golden mean value espoused by every western and eastern religion. " Do unto others as they would do unto you". You dont need a church or a religious group to show you are a christian, in my personal opinion.

The mass of the people are forced to believe into certain religions by ways of culture, traditions, family & now the media. I challenge you to ask yourself, are you truly practing your religion because of your true faith? Or is it because it's all you've ever known?

Do you think that religion effects the way we deal in our day-to-day life and the way our personality has been molded? Is drinking, rape, murder, assault and other such things have to do with religion or is it just because of the heredity or the environment in which the person lives?
