hey - mmm. what makes a person a christian? what makes a christian a christian? is it the sinner's prayer..and that's all? -- keep a friend of mine in prayer - he used to be an atheist. and now just last week - actually this monday he announced that he's accepted God's gift. the whole deal - you know what i mean. it's exciting, yes. but in our group of friends - skepticism has arisen. with our friend having been atheist for so long - and now come to Christ - almost seems unreal. personally i've never had a close friend come to Christ.. never really had non-christian friends either. like... are you a christian from the moment you say the 'sinner's prayer'? how does this work?
