Are You a True Christian? Maybe, Maybe Not.

A lot of people call themselves Christian, but when they find out what it actually means, they're not so certain, or even interested any longer.

Just so you know, this is the definition of True Christianity. If you do not fit into the framework, you might wish to refer to yourself in some other way…..(You can call yourself a Chrysler, but unless you're a car of the same name, or a member of the Chrysler family, you are NOT a Chrysler.)

The Nicene Creed (4th century)
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.
Who, for us men for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who has spoken through the prophets.
And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Progressive Christianity is not 'true' Christianity. Still, sometimes it conveys the message of Jesus in a much more gentle, caring, and powerful way than creeds or dogmas. You may disagree.

But no need to argue with me about it. I'm just the messenger.
