This comes up over and over - "What makes someone a true believer" - and after the question I asked about can you be a Wiccan if you don't follow the Wiccan beliefs and lifestyle that comes with it I wanted to specify this question...
While it is true that each individual will have slight differences in opinion over this or that, even within the same branch of the same religion... BUT, if someone doesn't share the basic beliefs or doesn't follow the basic traditions or lifestyle of that belief system, can they be classified as a "true believer" since they obviously don't believe the same?

Core beliefs are often subjective, and only the individual can decide why they feel connected to a particular religion of belief system. .Most religions and groups are more complex then just a list of beliefs, so each person has to decide for themselves what they feel is "true" about their religion or belief group, and what really draws them to that faith or belief system.
