Christian is defined:

As an adjective;

1. Professing belief in Jesus as Christ or following the religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus.
2. Relating to or derived from Jesus or Jesus's teachings.
3. Manifesting the qualities or spirit of Jesus, especially in showing concern for others.

As a noun;

1. One who professes belief in Jesus as Christ or follows a religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus.
2. One who lives according to the teachings of Jesus.

Christianity (from the Ancient Greek word Χριστός, Christos, a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ, Māšîăḥ, meaning "the anointed one", together with the Latin suffixes -ian and -itas) is an Abrahamic, monotheistic religion based on the life and oral teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, taking into consideration what is presented in the New Testament.

Therefore a Christian is informally defined as having or showing qualities associated with Christ, especially those of Forgiveness, Charity, service, sacrifice, decency, kindness, and fairness.

Just claiming to be Christian does not make you Christian.
A Christian is a person who has repented and received Christian baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ to the point of following Jesus Christ and His true teachings.

There is a strong debate as to what those teachings are and who and what the real Jesus Christ was trying to tell the people and get them to do. So the question may remain, who are the real Christians?

But being a Christian means actually qualifying with the description given by Christ's own words, and it may exclude what many Modern Christians propose to be Christianity. Jesus makes it clear that not just a few but many will claim to be Christians but are not, and those who are not are actually workers of iniquity.

Jesus makes it clear that:

  • Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.[1]

  • 1 John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

noun: Christian; plural noun: Christians

One definition of a Christian today is a person who has received Christian Baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ and His teachings.

The question comes when we ask what His teachings were.

Here we may find many Modern Christians doing contrary to what the early Christians believed, which caused the early Christians in conflict with Rome. There are over 40,000 Denominations and many of them are quite different, and they have different ideas about what "following" Jesus means.

Jesus talks about being Doers of the Word, not so that you earn salvation, but because if you love Him and His teachings, you will naturally do what He said. Many Modern Christians do not do what Jesus said, and in fact, they often do the opposite of what He said and what the early Christians were doing. Modern Christians have more in common with Pharisees and their Corban which made the word of God to none effect. It is that Corban that has brought in the Mark of the Beast. The Damnable heresies have crept in to the thinking of the Modern Christians.

CHRISTIANITY is defined in Bouvier's law dictionary, which is the dictionary used to interpret the Constitution of the United States; it is defined as "The religion established by Jesus Christ".

But then we must ask what is Religion?

We may also ask what is baptism?

What of all the Denominations?

What is the Church?

Baptism, the Ritual and the Jurisdiction
Are Christians repenting and getting baptized, or are they just all wet?

Faith is not the result of closing your eyes and believing but opening them.
We know that there will be "many" who think they are Christians but are actually workers of iniquity because Jesus says there will be. This simple Checklist and its links may help the individual who want to repent and seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness understand or determine if they are really a Christian or in need of more repentance.
Might Not be a Christian Might be a Christian
Thinks the word Christian is defined, "a person who has received Christian baptism or says they are a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings but covets the benefits of the world."[2] Believes Christian is defined, "a person who believes in and follows The Way of Jesus Christ, doing what he said."[3] By caring about his neighbor's life, liberty and property as much as his own.
Says they Believe in Jesus Christ but does not do what He said. Strives to do what Jesus Christ said to do.[4] And attends to the weightier matters.
Does not do what the early Church did about the welfare needs of the people in the practice of Pure Religion but sees nothing wrong with the types of welfare offered by the world. Does do what the early Church did by providing welfare for

one another by charity rather than force.[5]

Believes in Socialism to help the needy of society and because of their covetousness they are Workers of Iniquity. Believes in Charity only to help the needy of society in the practice Pure Religion.
They may legally be forced to join systems of forced healthcare because they have no voluntary one in place. They have their own system of health share based on love, charity, and would be exempt from government sponsored Health Care (like the Amish) and from systems based on force .
Covets his neighbor's goods through Benefactors who exercise authority one over the other. Strives to provide a Daily ministration based on Charity by daily Sacrifice.
Sought a system of social Welfare like the Corban of the Pharisees or just went along and are often Workers of Iniquity. Seeking and working diligently for a system of Welfare based on Charity alone.
Ministers tell the people if they need bread they can pray to men who call themselves Benefactors but exercise authority one over the other. Ministers tell people to supply bread to the needy of their congregations by faith, hope, and Charity through the Perfect law of liberty.
Ministers downplay the importance of DOING the Word of God suggesting that what you think or say will save you. Ministers tell the people that doing the will of the Father in Heaven is a sign of true faith and not doing so is a sign that their faith is dead and they are in need of repentance.
Ministers tell the people it is okay to covet benefits as long as they are provided by governments who take from your neighbor or borrow against the future of the people. Ministers tell the people to provide benefits through the practice of Pure Religion and if they want Eternal life they shall not covet their neighbors goods even through the governments of the World.
Ministers tell the people that forgiveness simply takes place in the mind. Ministers explain to those who were forced to pay into a now bankrupt society, that forgiveness also applies to forgiving those debts and how there is a choice to go a different way as Christ and John the baptist instructed..
Ministers tell the people to obey men who claim authority but do not tell you why your under their power even though Paul would not go under the power of any.[6] Ministers help the congregation exercise what Jesus called the "weightier matters" so they may have a right to obey God rather than man. [7]
Ministers "say" to repent but do not tell you what that means. Ministers tell you what you are to Repent of and why.
Ministers tickle their ears to make them feel good. Ministers encourage them to do good and rebuke them in love when they do not.
These false Christians do not like to be told they are not doing what Christ said. True Christians appreciate the truth and actually strive to do something to change their conversation in the world.

  1. Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

    John 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
    John 7:4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
    John 7:51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?
    John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
    Template:John 15:1 - 6 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
