- believer in Jesus Christ as savior: somebody whose religion is Christianity
- from teachings of Jesus Christ: based on or relating to a belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Messiah, and acceptance of his teachings, contained in the Gospels
- relating to Christianity: relating to Christianity, or belonging to or maintained by a Christian organization, especially a church
Well ask the average church member. I have had some terrible experiences at the hands of other members and I know from people that contact me all the time I am not alone. There are two explanations of this. Firstly the church like any other place is full of hurting people like anywhere else. People who need Jesus who make mistakes and are still on a journey. Second reason could be that people have put on a religion but have not accepted Jesus.
That second reason is a dark bleak reality. I could be sitting next to people who have merely put on the religion for a number or reasons but really have not accepted Jesus. Seriously?! That's a harsh truth. I am gonna dig a little deeper to find out what makes a person a Christian. Because if it is as simple as accepting Jesus why does that look so different to so many people in different nations, denominations and places!
My quest continues to figure out what a Christian is and specifically what an Adventist is.
