You are asking the wrong person. June doesn't understand Christianity.<quoted text>
who came up with the word christen?
You would be better suited with asking a local church priest or pastor. In the least - you will get an answer that is from the one side.
To get the other secular voice on this - IMO - a so-called "Christian" is a person who follows the complete Jesus, what he taught, and why he taught it for others. A so-called "Christian" emulates Jesus and his actions.
- "telling" others that they are going to "hell" or that "you aren't saved" are indicators that the person is not such a character.
- just claiming "I believe in Jesus" is a ruse they want you to fall into - because they themselves really don't understand why they are telling you this to begin with.
In a nutshell - you'll have a hard time finding one in this forum.
