What Does It Mean to be a Christian

When Jesus returns, do you think reading the bible, and perhaps being able to copy and paste passages into a forum, will be a criteria for going to heaven? Or will he consider the actual actions you've taken as most important? Or put it another way, could we completely get rid of the bible, never read it again, and still be able to get to heaven?

You seem to have issues with the Bible.

I have issues with people who seem to think knowing the bible equates to being a Christian. So I'm asking Christians what they think it means to be a Christian. Seems none of them in this forum actually knows since I've gotten no responses other than yours, which wasn't a response.

Because they're afraid of what they might find.

Afraid of what?  It is obvious to us you do not believe in the Bible and are looking to pick a fight.

Yes, reading the bible, copying and pasting is a sure ticket to Heaven.  You didn't know that?   Roll Eyes

Yeah, where is that verse that copying my word shall surely allow you to enter the kingdom of heaven?  I am still trying to find the other verse in scripture where God is described in the female description.

Posting scriptures on a Christian forum and discussing it is what we do here.  No, an unbeliever does not get to come on a Christian forum and dictate to us the rules for a forum meant for us.  You seem obsessed over this.  Like in the political we quote scripture as a referrence just as it is done in the political forum.  I think you are here simply to muck it up.  Post deleted.

I am here to be converted.


Seriously.


I would love to have the certainty that my grandmother had.


But, as a bolshy atheist, I tend to annoy here on the Christian forum... Less so on Religion and all holds are legal in Politics.


Exclude me?

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.
