The term "True Christian," like God in the Westminster Confession of Faith, is best defined by what it is not. Seriously.

Anyone who disagrees with what an arbitrary Christian believes about Christianity in any way is not a True ChristianTM. Otherwise, of course, the arbitrary Christian would accept and believe the disputed matters, which he does not.

I agree, I was just wondering if any passing Christians would venture an opinion on there stock belief? :scratch:

Atheism alone is no more a religion than health is a disease. One may as well argue over which brand of car pedestrians drive.

What makes a true conservative, or a true liberal, or a true secular humanist?

I suppose the general answer would be an ad-hoc list of characteristics which a certain person feels should be attributes of the category; thus, the problem lies with the person arguing that such a category exists. In apologetic arguments such as the one in this thread, it's generally the theist who proposes, as part of a No True Scotsman logical fallacy, that someone who has exhibited undesirable characteristics falls out of the category of "True Christian," and the usual refutation is to get the person to a) define a true Christian, and b) indicate whether he thinks he's a True Christian.

He was also quite egotistical, and served as President of the local "Jews for Jesus" club.
