Hello ladies!!! Happy Valentines Day! I have a question and I am looking for answers for mainly non-believers or non-christians... What do you think it takes for a person to be a true follower of Christ and NOT just talk about it or "preach" it to others?! Be honest okay?! We're all adults here..

All it takes is accepting Jesus as your savior and trying to be a good person. If you mess up, ask for forgiveness and you will be forgiven. But you can't set out to sin repeatedly, thinking that you can just ask for forgiveness afterwards, it doesn't work that way.

Couldn't tell ya.. I sang the song and danced the dance for years and was still scared I didn't "believe enough".

I'm relieved to finally be rid of any guilty I had from trying to be a TRUE true christian.

Forgiveness, love everyone even your enemies, tolerance, humility, non-materialistic, non-political; that one's really important for a Christian.

That can be a tricky question, because there are so many christians that like to point the finger at other christians, calling one another false followers. Take the "No True Scotsman" fallacy. Three Scottish brothers sit down to a haggis dinner, but one brother doesn't like haggis. The other two brothers look at him and say "Well no TRUE Scotsman hates haggis." Was he not born of the same mother in the same country as his brothers? Why does the matter of his choice in food have to make him not a true Scotsman? Christians come in many shades. When I was a believer I have had the "not a true Christian" finger pointed at me because I wasn't being enough of an asshole to people. And even now as a non believer I have had many people just assume that I must be Christian because I like to treat others how I want to be treated. I think its futile to try and weed out what a real Christian is and isn't. Faith is a personal thing, and should not be so easily boxed up and labeled.
