Define a "moderate christian"

To me a christian is anyone who follows the teachings of the bible. How do you delineate between moderately following the bible and any other way to follow the bible?


Well I think that's a poor definition of a Christian. I'm not a biblical literalist.



If Jesus walked in the room, would it be a reunion or an introduction? Do you know about Jesus or do you actually know him personally?

I wasn't asking about other people's experiences. I want to know what yours are. In all honesty, do you really feel like you know Jesus Christ, and God who sent him, or do you know about Him? You, personally.

Why do you think they call it "Communion?"

Again, would it be a reunion or an introduction? Would you say "It's you!" as if finally seeing a good friend after a long trip?

I answered your question, Communion embodies that personal relationship a person has with Christ. It would be a reunion.

Sorry, I'm just not sure what you mean by Communion. People have this weird way of defining words in different ways, which can make communication difficult at times. Can you describe what you mean by Communion to me?

The Sacrament of Communion, in which Christians consume the body and blood of Christ and he directly enters our souls.

What happens before and after 'Communion,' with regards to your relationship with Jesus?
