Your turn.....

Since I apparently find myself completely interesting and fascinating I never stop and ask you....what about you!?  What do you think?  I want to hear back from you.  I am going to pose a question, and I want to get tons and tons of feedback from my thousands (heh) of readers.  Please, don't be shy. Or..be shy, and comment anonymously.  I know that there are Christians and non-Christians that read my blog so I would like to hear from everyone.

Here is the question:

What is a Christian to you? Tell me about what you think of when you think of a Christian.  What does it mean to be a Christian?  How do Christians make you feel?  See where I'm going....?

I'm not looking for a bunch of fluff...I want the truth.

You know about my dirty laundry, feet and mustache issues....so really, it's only fair that it's your turn to share.




  1. Kate, a christian is a person who has a relationship with God. We talk to God, listen to God and thank God for all our blessings. We are sinners but can ask Him for forgiveness. We turn our troubles over to God. He is always with us and always listening.
    When I think of christians, I think of my extended family. I feel like we are all protecting and encouraging each other. We have the most amazing family connection in the whole world - the family of God. We are all so different but share a strong bond.
    Christians renew my sole. It is always good to be around your brothers and sisters, to have a loving mother and father, an adoring husband and children who love and admire you. You can find these relationships in christians even if they are not traditional blood relatives. Christians love unconditionally.
    I am so proud of the wonderful, brave christian woman that you have become. Love ya, MOM

  2. To me, a Christian is a person who has decided to die. Instead of living for themselves or their own desires, they have decided to give up on this life and enroll in a new one. This new life includes living for Jesus and his desires, and you can always tell when someone has made this decision, because his/her actions and attitude are greatly changed.

    Unfortunately, too many people who call themselves Christians (myself included) haven't fully died. We keep resuscitating our old selves, and the world notices. They notice that more than anything, because that's when we're the hateful, judgmental people that many see us as.

    As a Christian myself, I can honestly say that I don't like Christians as a whole very much. As a group, they're the most fake, hypocritical, and sometimes even rude people I ever spend time with. But at the same time, I can't help but love them, because I feel a family-like bond with them. Complete strangers feel like family, simply because we both love Jesus.

  3. I couldn't have said it better if I tried, Jeremy.

  4. A Christian is like a cuss word these days. I hear the word Christian and I think, hypocrite and prideful. And I'm part of that.

    At this point, I'm not sure what to do other than seek Jesus Christ, even if it means going against the corporate Church thinking.



Whatcha thinkin'?
