Being a Christian to me is loving the Lord, trying to live a good life, and it's hard. A lot of Christians try to make others feel guilty when they don't attend church on a regular basis, and they know darn well, going to Church won't get you to heaven. And then we have the Sunday only pretentious Christians....they are the hypocrites.
Yes...some people are also really good...you must know a lot of good people who don't necessarily go to your church....and they have good values...why can't Christian also be considered an attitude?
But I agree with the Committed Christians....if some people commit to going to a church let's say...that's a different commitment.....
I grew up thinking that we were the chosen ones...later I discovered that many people were also good and kind...not just Christians....
I know a lot of good people who don't go to Church, and I also know a lot of good people who do attend Church. Some go just to be going, some go to make social contacts.
Christian could be considered an attitude, but Christians are people.
I agree it should also be considered an attitude...yes...it's not exclusive to people who attend churches...
Altho attending a church regularly might give more of an impact to maintaining regular Christian values....
I also know some ppl who attend church regularly who aren't that Christian...it happens...
I feel as if I have most of the same values....I can call myself a Christian without belonging to any organization.
There is no reason why in this zeitgeist we can't use the word "Christian" as an adjective.
I know plenty Christians who are not good people.
It just seems inaccurate to me. It's not an attitude that makes a person a Christian. A Christian is a person who believes that Jesus Christ is his Lord and Savior, or at least belongs to a church that teaches this. Christians themselves have a wide range of attitudes.
It's a religion.
That is possible. I don't follow everything in the bible and I don't attend church but there are things that I was taught that I do follow.
Being a Christian is a way of life - it's a life of following Christ and his teachings, his examples. And, no a Christian doesn't have to go to church - though it helps, and yes, there are lots of people who go to church, but that doesn't make them a Christian.
It's way more than just an attitude, IMO.
It's a belief and following of Jesus. You don't have to belong to of follow any church. The most important thing is your personal relationship with God.
I suppose it's difficult to argue either way. The word religion is used in the New Testament, but I suppose most Christians share a similar "attitude" as well. Define it the way you like it. Being a Christian means that you believe that you have everlasting life by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
It could be but I wouldn't know...Im not a fundamentalist traditional Christian! I think everyone has some of it right...
It is necessary to know and worship God according to truth (John 17:3) and also necessary to have a good attitude and be obedient to God! All are important
