Out of curiosity, and an insatiable need for validation (j/k :P), I'm wondering how many Christians are part of this here community. Anyone?

The stigma of that word is often lost to the masses...I do not define myself by any set definition, I am a being, in search of my higher self, doing what I believe to be part of a plan inspired by all of us before time was given meaning, I am the flowers, the wind, the water, I am all of you.....You are all of me, we are a part of each other, searching, making mistakes, learning becomming.....That is all that I am!

i myself don't enjoy the label "Christian" that much, since people have done so much to muddy it. I prefer Christ-follower, actually. But more people know what I mean with the other.

In the other sense, though, I meant the word to be somewhat exclusive. people who know Christ, but don't call themselves "Christians" still know what I mean.

I'm an Elder in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Due to the high volume of debates in the NGs, I'll let you decide if I am Christian :P

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

Heh...well, if you hold with the thought that Christ is the saviour/messiah and is God incarnate as Man to suffer and die for the sins of humanity, then yeah...you're a Christian by the terms I was taught.

Sorry about that, it's just that in the NGs (ARM and ARB) wars get fought everyday over whether or not LdS (aka Mormons) are Christian.  I would consider myself Christian.

Melody: nice to meet you. how did you get involved in things paranormal?

Pandora: and you as well. I've known a few who considered themselves Christian+Wiccan. But it does confuse. In what way are you both (since you can't read tone on a message board, know that this isn't sarcasm, but curiosity). :P
