There are lot words to described this very vague but comprehensive word. The irony of it is it is easy to give the meaning and have all what you have based on a dictionary, a late president, a genius, and even coming from the bible but on the other hand being christian is hard to work on. It is not just being baptized and then you are now a christian..Thats not the case, being christian is to have a commitment of doing good.Honestly i cannot live without commiting a mistake i admit that. .. i can never be perfect as any other i can be prune to lot of flaws and i dont know if i have the face to say that i am a christian... are confidence enough to say your a christian? are you justifiable to say that?

i am Christian...because to be a Christian is to act humanely as you can, or to be human.. anything that promotes "being human" is Christian.. Jesus Christ, is the model of Christians, because the acts that he have done is towards the common good, in his time.. we could also be like him, by doing those acts (not necessarily the same), that would promote it, by teaching others to fish, following our parents, etc.. i do not follow though all the teachings in the Catholic Church about Jesus, cause they have been preaching alot of wrong info, or some may be hidden from us.. i study it sometime on my own.

"To be Christian is to act as humanely as you can"??? Where did this come from? Most definitely not the Bible...or maybe I'm reading a different Bible...

i just learn from school, that to be Christian is to be human..the teacher told us that anything that promotes being human, is Christian, whether it is a different religion or an belief, as long as the act is dehumanizing...i did not read that from a bible, i have a 4 textbooks that deals with the contemporary Christian belief..we also learn the everything in the bible is not correct, it a mixed of history interpreted and history remember..it was written for the people at Jesus time..it should be interpreted based on what happen before..some are just added to intensify some events that happen before...i still use the bible as guide sometimes though...
