  • If you are confident with your own beliefs why do you need someone else opinion? As long as your living your life the way you think it should be, who cares what other people think.

  • Is this in comparison to a make believe one? J/K I think people who judge others or throw stones when they are living in glass houses themselves.

  • Oh, I'm confident :) I've just met so many different people who have different definitions, so I'm just curious. Nobodies opinion is going to personally affect me.

  • Someone, professed and fully relying on the gift of grace/salvation, who lives humbly and above reproach. Someone who never needs to explain their belief, because its evident in their daily life. In other words, if God's love outshines their nature, meaning they allow Him to work rather than themselves. IMO, a 'real' xtians doesn't need description; you know them when you see them.

  • One who worries more about being like Christ and less about being like a Christian

    Answer by tryin2BGOOD at 11:51 PM on Aug. 6, 2010

  • Someone who chooses to love others like He did, to forgive like He did, to lay down their life for their friends, like He did, to uplift and encourage others to be who they really are, like He did, to be the salt of the earth and light of the world, like He did, to be humble extending grace and mercy to others, like He did, to feed the poor, minister to the orphans and widows, like He did, to discipline & rebuke in love, like He did, to love others and not hold things against them like He did, to walk in the 9 fruits of the Spirit, like He did, to walk in love, that is to be patient & know love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things like He did!
