While many people might think the definition of a Christian is part of basic knowledge, there are many false assumptions about what it means to be a Christian. Some people believe that if they grew up in church and outwardly practiced all the “required” actions, then that makes them Christian.
Furthermore, some people think they can bear the title “Christian” if they believe in God or celebrate Christmas.
But what does being a Christian really mean? Is it just a title that anyone can assume by following a checklist of activities? Is it something a person is born into?
In many ways, the term has lost meaning in modern culture because various people claim the title without knowing what the Bible says about what it means to be a Christian.
In this article, I want to emphasize the biblical meaning of “Christian” and demonstrate the crucial difference between professing a title and having a real relationship with the living Christ.
