One cannot be a "Christian by birth."  One can be born into a Christian environment and raised by Christian parents, but that does not mean one is a "Christian by birth."

If he's "Christian by birth" he's likely to have been baptized. That means that his godfather stood before a priest and said "I believe" on his behalf. For most Christians that means that he is a Christian. The only way he could cease to be a Christian is by excommunication or by officially adopting a non Christian faith.

That's Catholicism, not Christianity.

Spot on EF.  The child can not be a Christian until the child understands language and the concept of God.  Then he may make a choice and decide if he believes or not.

But trump says that it's a miracle and we must accept that without reservations.

  The Gospel is not a majority opinion which is why this warning.  I could care less if 2/3rds of the population thought otherwise.  We do not set the standards.  Few will find it, that is a warning and quite honestly whether you are Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran or whatever, is not what gets ANYONE to heaven.  This warning was meant for us to realize that there is ONLY one path to heaven, not multiple paths.

I notice that you know a lot about bullshit... I wonder what that makes you.


A lapsed dung beetle maybe...

Sure and you affirming that a billion people who call themselves Christians are not truly Christians is all it takes to make that determination.
