    If you keep your own mine, you are not a christian.
    If you take the mine of Jesus christ you are a christian.

      I thought it might be easier to ask myself, "Am I Christian? No!" Well I guess I'm not Christian.

        Judging from everything you've written (that I've read) I would agree.

      How to tell whether you are a Christian??
      Check your IQ, if it is less than 70, you are a Christian!

      Are you talking about being one of the millions of so-called-Christians that Jesus identified as deceived and follow a false doctrine, or do you mean the "elect" that Jesus said could not be deceived? It is easy to be one of the former. Just say you believe in Jesus, and then go live your life like everyone else while trying to impose your perverted view of God's will on the rest of humanity. If you are the latter, you will know it because you understand God's word in the way God intended. In other words, there are very few Christians on this planet. The majority are deceived by Satan and follow a false doctrine.

            That's for each of us to figure out. A false doctrine is one that doesn't follow the teaching of Christ and the disciples. It's not possible for all churches to be correct. Since each denomination has a different doctrine, how do we find the "correct" one? Some people point to the Catholics, Mormons, Lutherans, or take your pic. Every organized Christian religion out there has been accused of teaching false doctrine by at least one other church. This should make us consider the possibility that all Christian churches are teaching false doctrines, which is after all, what the Bible says will happen in the end times. I think most people agree that we are near the end. I could be wrong. I go by what my Bible says, not what someone tells me.

              So are you one of the elect then? Do you believe you can tell who the elect are?

              Now if the Churches preach Jesus and obedience to his commands, where and what are their false doctrines?

              Do you believe that the vast majority of these church members are not the elect, therefore deceived, therefore going to hell?

              Is heaven going to be rather empty?

        Why do you keep asking questions if you are going to answer them all yourself?

          I guess I like talking to myself. Actually, that is a common device used by many text books that teach various subjects. One can either state an opinion and then elaborate on it, or ask a question and then answer it. I usually mix the two in my writings.
          @disappearinghead, the one Jesus and his disciples talked about. I don't profess to know, just throwing out my opinion like everyone else.

            FYI drbill - I've gotten into the habit of prefacing my comments with 'IMO' just to avoid the attacks on my...opinion.

        It's not just a change of mind.
        Becoming a Christian involves heart, soul, and body too.
        Yet its simplicity is basic.

        One has to recognize their sinful state and need for a Savior.  This involves emotion.
        Recognize that Jesus is that Savior, that He died for the sins of anyone who will accept His sacrifice.  Repent of their sins and Love the Lord.  Again, it's emotional to realize that.  Believe in their heart and confess with their mouths.

        Becoming a Christian is a decision, yes.  But there is much emotion and change of heart and mind that's involved.

        This theory has one flaw.

        It depends totally on the angle from which one views the top of your head.
        It COULD read 999.
        The significance of which eludes me. lol
