I have seen several questions in regards to being called a Christian or the name of a religion. Example: Christian or Catholic. What is the definition of Christian? It should be your personal relationship with God. The name of a religion should not matter.
When I see comments like "I used to be Catholic, but now I'm Christian". In my opinion it's either A) They use to be Catholic and are now what most would consider to be an non-denominational-Christian, thus they just say I'm a Christian, because they are non-denominational. or B) They're just plan ignorant and don't realize that Catholics ARE Christians.
I assume A and hope it's not B. :) (That's if they haven't already shown that they believe B to be true)

A christian is someone that believe Christ is the Son of God.
A Catholic is a Christian, A Lutheran is a Christian, A Presbyterian is a Christian, A Methodist is a Christian, An Episcopalian is a Christian, An Anglican is a Christian. A Baptist is a Christian (If I left anyone out I didn't mean too)
The labels, Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist, and all the rest is just to let people know what "type" of Christian they are, what their "exact" believes are.
Yes it's true that they are all Christians, but some say infants can be baptise other not, Some say BC (Birth Control) is okay others NOT etc.
