Christendom,[1] or the Christian world,[2] has several meanings. In a cultural sense it refers to the worldwide community of Christians, adherents of Christianity. In a historical or geopolitical sense the term usually refers collectively to Christian majority countries or countries in which Christianity dominates[1] or was a territorial phenomenon.
.
Since the churches are far removed from being truly Christian, I refuse to use the media's term. thus, instead, "Churchianity".

If you were to replace that with "Churchianity", Plastic Churchoid, you'd be CORRECT, for a rare change.

AS ALWAYS, YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE.

YOU JUST RUN YOUR IGNORANT MOUTH AND EXPOSE THE IGNORANCE OF Satan's cult, the jehovah's witnesses.

What you should have said was,
SOME Churches are far removed from being truly Christian.

faiths like catholics, church of England, JWs, mormons, Angicans, and some Methodists aren't Christians.

[2]A true Bib lical Christian is a person just like Jesus diong healings and miracles.

If you look at Acts 11: 20--26, You see the reason the disciples were call Christians was because they had the hand of God on them and the grace of God was with them doing healings and miracles.

You can't tell me that Pau was preaching for one year without diond healings and miracles. See Rom 15: 19.

I may have to agree with this MAD. I would also say most of the churches I'm aware of would agree as well. We are not truely christian because of our religions, but we are christians only when we believe and have faith in Jesus Christ.

We are all sinners in need of forgiveness. Not a single one of us is righteous but it is the righteousness of Jesus Christ that we need. We are told that salvation is found only in Jesus Christ and not in our particular church demoninations.

We are also taught that the "true" church is not the baptist, lutheran or methodist church we may or may not go to, but rather those who believe and have faith in Jesus Christ.

Those who believe and have faith in Jesus Christ are the true christians.

We [Born again Christians]don't need the righteousness of Jesus, BECAUSE WE ALREADY HEAVE IT.

If you think we [Born again Christians]are still sinners, What did the death of Jesus acomplish??.
If we were sinners before Jesus died and are still sinners after He rose again, And as born again people we are still sinners, Why did Jesus die??..

The Bible calls us,
"Saints, The righteousness of God, Holy, Sanctified,partakers of God's divine nature and children of God, being conformed into the image of Jesus that He is the first and we the rest just like Him.

Here is one that may help explain this better:

1 John 1:
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

Also, read Romans chapter 6 which explains this further. We have been set free from sin and have now become slaves to righteousness.

SO, Are you saying we are still sinners??.
If so, What did the death and resurrection of Jesus do??.

Rom 6, proves my point that we are partakers of God's divine nature and we can be free from sin.
Sinneres can't be free from sin because they still have the sinful nature.

Our sins were paid for by Jesus Christ. He received the punishment we deserved for our sins.
We all still have a sinful nature and we all still sin.
If you read on here in Romans 8 Paul discusses life through the Spirit.

Romans 8:
1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.

.....
5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.
8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.
10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.

Man is a three part being, We are a Spirit who has a souls and lives in a body, Our Spirit man,[The real us] doesn't sin as it is born af God and has His divine nature.

If we walk in the Spirit we won't fufil the lusts of the flesh.
But if we walk in the flesh we will tend to fall to sin.

Are you sin free?
We can live alife where sin doesn't have dominion over us, So Yes we can live sin free,
But like Paul we have a souls and body that wars against our Spirit.

That is why we should walk in the Spirit and not fufil the lusts of the flesh.

Unliberated- why not write your OWN 'Holy Book', since you have such an Active Imagination?

I have RARELY read something so profoundly stupid-

"Man is a three part being, We are a Spirit who has a souls and lives in a body, Our Spirit man,[The real us] doesn't sin as it is born af God and has His divine nature."
