So what makes someone a true Christian? A Christian is a follower of Christ who has been saved by faith alone, through grace alone not by works (Eph 2:8-10). A Christian is also someone that has repented of sin (Lk 13:3) and submits to the Lordship of Christ (book of James). A Christian is also someone that affirms the essentials of the faith including the view that Jesus is the only way to salvation (John 14:6) and that the Bible is divinely inspired (2 Tim 3:16). So can a true Christian be "progressive" and hold views on inspiration like so many of the questionable churches in Denver, CO do? Can a true Christian be a pluralist? Can a true christian be affirming? Once I had a phone conversation with a "Progressive American Baptist Pastor" and he was flat out a false convert due to his progressive views not only on the Bible, but on Christ being the only way to salvation. It seems that there is a blurred line on what is a true christian on this board. I am not saying that non Calvinists are not Christians so please do not go there. Christian leaders like Charles Stanley and Hank Hanagraaf are non-Calvinist but they affirm the essentials, and affirm an essential view on inspiration. So what say you?
