Do you consider yourself a Christian? and if you do, are you truly a believer of Jesus Christ as Saviour? if you are a believer, do you live your life according to God's standard? If you are living by God's standard, do you encounter struggles in life? One friend have said that encountering struggles regarding obeying God's word is part of being a Believer. On the other hand, are those who do not have struggles really a Believer? What does it take to be a Christian? Is it obeying God's word inspite of the Persecutions, Hardships, and Struggles?

Being Christian means that you acknowledge Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior in faith. Christian's and non-Christians come across with struggles in life but if you are a Christian you know that Christ will lift you and help you out with the struggles that you have no matter how hard it will be. As a believer and follower of Jesus I have to obey His word no matter how hard it is, God didn't promise us a bed of roses but knowing that God is with me I know i will survive and endure the hardships and struggles.

With your question, the answer is simply yes. but, i have a question to you, do you believe that only one religion will Christ save in Judgement day?

Religion is not only the basis of salvation. God sees through the heart of men. A heart that is right towards God is the most important. Speaking of judgement day, everyone will be judged according to their actions but the believers shall be spared from condemnation. For Jesus had already paid for the sins of the world and those who accept Him as Saviour and Lord (manifested by obeying His word - which could be evident in that person's life) will no longer be punished like the wicked ones.

I consider myself to have one rule! Yep, one rule.. To love God, and the more I will do this, the more filled up with God I will be, who 1 jn 4:8 says "is love". I figure the more I love God, therefor, the more I will love my fellow person, and as 1 corinthians chapter 13 says, Love works no evil.. i.e. it won't rob, fraud, cheat, kill, nor harm. But yes I think we will be persecuted, I find that the more active I am in telling folks about God and Jesus and His great plan of salvation, whether in person or on the internet, the more satan comes against me. But if I am not active, I don't have as many struggles it seems.. but who wants to do that!? I also try to tell people what Bible prophecy and Book of Revelation says.. things waiting in the wings.. because there are signs which if God's people know them they may be able to avoid these hardships shaping up, I'm afraid, in the world.

Yes I consider myself as a Christian, I love the Lord Jesus Christ and like to follow his principles for my life, It is very tough to lead a Christ like life though not impossible, because if we all really lived like Jesus Christ the world would have converted to Christianity, It is based on Love, forgiveness, Loving your enemies doing good to those who hate you it is not everyone's cup of tea, you need the help of Lord Jesus and the holy spirit to help each one of us in this, God allows a lot of testing to come in our life if you are true Christian so that you will reach to new levels and grow in your walk with Lord Jesus.

I can say with a happy heart that I do consider myself to be a Christian. I am a true believer of Jesus Christ as Saviour. I try to live by God's standard and according to his ways. Life is a constant struggle. People hear the word Christian from your lips and attitudes change. Only other Christians treat you the same. Those who are not true Christians don't know how to deaal with you. All it takes to be a Christian is to believe in Jesus Christ and accept him as your Saviour. If you have faith in him, everything else will fall into place. Take care and God bless!!
