Najeena, a Christian is someone who puts his/her trust in Christ, believing that Christ is the Son of God who voluntarily died upon the cross to redeem the sins of man, and who follows Christ.

najeena, I don't even know what Kieren means by "a Christain after a crooked fashion". I've never heard that term in my life, and I have been a Christian for 27 years.

Absolutely.

What if someone believes in the things that Jesus said as a holy man, his teachings of forgiveness and charity- and doesn't believe that he was the offspring of a diety? Can't that person be a follower of Jesus?

Uh, the movie's over and all of this isn't the point of discussion and has nothing to do with it. Maybe another thread can be started if people want to discuss all of that.

Christ taught many things, and chief amongst them was that he himself was the Son Of God who came as Savior. It is well and good to believe in and try to follow the "moral teachings" of Jesus, such as "love your enemies", "do unto others as you'd have done to you", etc. However, since man cannot follow those teachings 100%, he is sinful and separated from God. The point of the Gospel is that Christ, the Son of God, yet 100% man also, never sinned, and his death on the cross and subsequent resurrection redeems people from the penalty of their sin and the power of that sin. If a person does not believe that about Christ, he/she does not believe in the Christ of the Bible, and is not a Christian as defined by the Bible.
