A blog I follow just kicked off the following conversation:
My point today is not decide if our president is a true believer or not. No—I want to know what you think makes anyone a believer. Just what makes one a Christian? Is it a specific group of words that must be confessed? A certain set of beliefs that must be embraced? Are there outward actions, such as baptism, that are requirements before one can be “saved.” What is the bottom line for one becoming a Christian?Feel free to comment here or head on over to the Internet Monk, and share your response in the comments. Or just troll. It's your choice.
My initial response to the first round of answers: In contrast to the dialogue about Obama, it interesting that we are quick to make being a Christian so complicated when it comes to real people, but in theory it's so simple.
What's up with that?
