And I would add that if the mark of a TRUE Christian was one who did all of that AND still believed 100% in the storyline, you would be excluding a lot of people who still see themselves as Christian (even if you in particular dont see yourself as Christian).<quoted text>
We are not home for Christmas. We are at the home of my wife's parents - who BTW, are not religious. But we love Christmas and all the traditions and trappings very much - tree, gifts, stockings (I have on with my name on it made by my wife!) and we go to church on Christmas eve.
Hughbes attempt to define TRUE Christian is just as flawed as his attempt to define the TRUE Jew
I believe it is a logical fallacy as well. The No True Scottsman fallacy.
"....Similarly, apologists argue that Christians are good people by categorically denying that anyone who does a bad deed is a "true Christian". The lack of a generally accepted definition of "Christian" allows apologists to redefine the word to fit their arguments. For this reason, many self-professed Christians who commit bad deeds are excluded from the group by apologists..."
