I keep hearing stuff about "real" Christians. So I guess there are real vs fake Christians out there. How can you tell the difference?

True Christians are few and far between.You may not recognize one because they will not be cramming God down tour throat. They will not be spouting hate for the lazy poor,uneducated,dope heads,drunks,religion not their own,abortion,race, the list goes own.
If you are lucky enough to ever meet one you will meet a happy,non judgemental,giving,caring,non critical,non church going,has an occasional drink,might smoke a joint,swares,picks up a person walking in the rain,cold,or heat,they might reach out a helping hand to someone that doesn't smell
good.This list goes on too.

Please don't look for them in places like churches.That will be the last place you find one. Good luck on your search

Character is what you do when nobody is looking.I understand 4REAL if you claim to be Christian and you are getting abortions thats hypocrtical.If as soon as you leave church you are cussing someone telling them how worthless they are because your fellow church members can't see you then thats a fake christian.If you claim to be a Christian and you hate your family instead of admitting I screwed up wasn't a good influence or role model.You are a hypocrite.If you claim to be a Christian and money is your primary focus then I hate to tell you that you just don't get it.God doesn't forget and HE knows the difference.You don't have to go around shouting it from the rafters.It would be apparent by your actions alone.Like I said I've met very few Christians in my life.I will be the first to admit that I make mistakes.How about some truth?I'm jealous of my husbands ex-wife because her parents love her no matter what she's ever done.They will always be there for her and her child.I don't have that and wish I did.Not an easy thing to admit but its the TRUTH.My prents don't give a crap about me my sister was right when she said that to hurt me.That nobody in my family likes me.Most of them call me if they need something her included.So if people that are christians were more honest we'd be a whole lot more likeable and it would probably lead to more people becoming believers.

Wow yall some twisted individuals. I'm so glad I'm so interesting I've become the topic lol! Don't think I ever "claimed" to be a Christian although I am a Christian because I'm God's child and I have been saved and brought up in a Christian home. And Negative on any abortions I've had to pregnancies and I have two children. I was pointing out the lack of morals merry widow has considering she was giving advice in how to kill a baby on another topic. Anyone who judges someone because they are Christian is ignorant, that is all I said. I did not judge, call names, put down or take the Lords name in vein, I simply stated a fact. This person is ignorant which means without knowledge. I do not see any Christians putting down anyone else for what they believe or do not believe so why are Christians attacked so much??

my God loves me just the same. Never claimed to be perfect but I promise I have better morals than you. I wouldn't kill my unborn child or judge other Christians on a website. I'm never in a bar on Sat then church on Sunday. I may let my temper get the best of me from time to time and as the country song goes I'm not as good as I wanna be but I'm a heck of alot better than I used to be.

I said I agree with you. I'm not judging you and I understand the point you were trying to make.

You wont find any "real" Christians (Christ like) around here, only self righteous back-stabbing bigots.

A real Christian is one that follows the edicts of GOD and Christ as WRITTEN in the bible. We do not add in things that do not exist to justify our feelings, We follow Christs example and dictates on how to treat people and live.
We do not follow Pagan traditions like Christmas, Ishtar/Easter or the lie of Thanksgiving.
All the Holi-Days I listed are Pagan Roman celebrations, and NOT biblical. These came for the Vatican and not GOD.
We are to treat people with love and respect, no matter if we disagree with them. This does NOT mean we are to be victims as so many think, we are supposed to defend the lives of ourselves, family, and others whenever possible, this does not mean make war with people 20,000 miles way for the Vatican or any other entity. But we are supposed to honor or commitments to our friends and keep our word. If we can't keep our word then we should never utter it. Meaning don't make promises you know can't be kept, and think through what you say before you say it.
Since 99% of so called Christians do NOT read the bible they have or carry around we now have MYTHS/LIES perpetrated by those who claim the name of Christianity which is the taking of GODS name in vain, not a swear/cuss word as so many claim. To do something is vain is not cussing it is doing something for Nothing. To claim to be a follower of Christ, and live like a Pagan is in FACT taking his name in vain. Christ comes from the word Christos a greek word meaning essentially redeemer, Savior the Hebrew word Messiah.
