Q: What is a Christian?

A: Many people call themselves Christians, but their words and actions are grossly unchristian. Such contradictions stain the name Christian as people look and say, "That's a Christian? Well then, I don't want to be a Christian." Obviously such behaviors reveal that these people—who claim to be Christians and yet promote open sin—deny the Bible as the authority in their lives.
By definition a Christian is a repentant believer in Jesus Christ—the Son of God who came in the flesh, died, and was resurrected. The Bible speaks extensively about the subsequent lifestyle of believers—what it calls fruit. Walking in the fruit of the Spirit is often a telltale sign that people are living out their Christian lives as a tribute to the Lord who redeemed them from sin and death.
Only God is the ultimate judge of someone's heart. But read the rest of the article to find out our responsibility to those who claim to be Christians but do things that are not Christ-like.
