For Christians...What are the minimum requirements for you to consider a person a "True" Christian?

Update:

Does your answer still hold true if the person found Jesus in the Book of Mormon or in the Watchtower?

    Having left Christendom, I can say from experience that every denomination, sect and even individuals, have their own list of minimum requirements.

      Anybody that claims to be a Christian is a "true" Christian as far as I'm concerned.

    • Those who believe in Jesus AND Love One Another are True Christians, if any professing Christian fails to Love One Another, they are not a True Christian, and they will be weeping and gnashing their teeth, when they are left behind at the Rapture.

    Yes, every denomination has its own requirements, its own beliefs, it's own teachings. Of course many of these beliefs and teachings are false. We know this because the teachings of each denomination contradict the teachings of the others, and truth cannot contradict truth. Which is why Jesus Christ founded one Church, said it was to remain one, and promised that one Church "The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth", and "Whatsoever you bind upon Earth is bound in Heaven", and 'He who hears you hears Me". Which is why that one Church remains one in belief, one in teaching, one in worship, one in biblical understanding after 2,000 years, while those who have defected from His Church have fragmented into thousands of conflicting denominations in just a few hundred years. You just can't beat God's plan.

    Here is the truth:  Death leads to immediate heaven or hell. The only way to have eternal life, the only way to be in heaven and avoid hell, is by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 6:47).  It is that simple and that easy.  It is too late to be saved after death.  Jesus is God and Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).  The Lord Jesus Christ paid for our sins with His death and blood.  Nothing else pays for our sins, not works from us or anything else.  You cannot add any works to getting into heaven (Romans 4:5)

    Jesus speaking

    John 3:3 KJV — Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    John 3:7 KJV — Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

    "Born again" is Greek gennaō anōthen (another birth) meaning reborn from above - meaning spiritually. Its a spiritual rebirth in the image of Christ who is the image of God. 

    Heres what happened 

    1- God made Adam in Gods spiritual image. He gave Adam a flesh body also so he could interact in earths physical environment. 

    2- Adam betrayed God by choosing to live for flesh gratification rather than for the Spirit of God 

    3- God cursed Adam and all his seed with death and decay, ruining our chances at eternal life here on earth. 

    4- Later God sent his only begotten Son to die a one time atoning death for all men who would accept his offer. Prior to the crucifixion Jesus showed us how to live in Gods spiritual image again. He was humble, obedient and submissive. 

    5- So Jesus who is the image of God regenerates us one by one back into the spiritual image of God and saves our souls. 

    6- If this spiritual transformation never takes place in our lives here then we will die in Adams sinful flesh image. And then there is literally hell to pay

    It's a silly term.  I don't use it.  We're all sinners.

      that's what the church wants us to be believe. Adam and Eve are a myth.

    As defined in the Bible.

      Jesus began the Christian congregation, maintaining his Father's standard practice of having ONE representative group with which he had dealings, proven by the outpouring of the holy spirit upon those early Christians. So, what's with the 100,000 different brands of "Christianity" that abound today?
