At what age you became a christian and if you had children, what age did they become christians?

And do you think, "Judas" was a christian, who saw the Miracles Jesus had done, He believe in Christ.

And is not the Pope a "Christian"?

And how are "followers of Christ" to act, if that is the definition of a "christian". "Forsaking All" and deny oneself, using the Apostles as our role models or are there more definitions, that people use? The Pope is a Christian, The porn stars claims to be a christian, The Practicing thief says he or she says they are a christian, The Practicing Adulterers says, they are Christians, The same sex nice couples says they are christians, The gossipers says, they are christians. The greek fraternities and sororities who represent and honor and pay tribute to greek gods and goddesses on "christian priinciples" and pledge a life time of brotherhood and sisterhood to all members no matter what cult or religion, witches , or warlocks! and some of them call themselves "christians"! I just saw my wife pastor yesterday doing a online Bible class in his office with Greek Fraternity lettering above his head. I could not believe what i was seeing.
There is a group called "The Divine Nine"! a mix of Fraternity and Sororities, powerful educated people! hey have replace Jesus name with their God and Goddesses names in their own Bibles and replace Jesus wisdom with their Greek God and Goddesses names. I know my wife is one of those! that stuff is in my House. I have look at their oath, and Look in their Group printed Bible and read their songs! Judges and lawyers and politicians. corporation CEO's, These are some , nice looking people who does a lot of good works spreading through out this country, all in churches "pastors, preachers. Sunday school teachers, male and female! doctors, Respected people in the neighborhood. And this new VP if she ain't one, they are going to make her a "Honorary Member"! PloughBoy is not lying! And I am not going to stick my neck to far out here.

a Lot of us are to busy trying to determine what is legal marriage and what is not. And people have been getting married for over 8,000 years! The world is almost coming to a end and we talking about Marriage and the difference between a "male and a female" and what is a marriage! And we are suppose to be the wise ones! Talking about something that has been settle.

I just wish i could show one video on here from Youtube of a woman doing a bible class, And give you a taste, of the stuff that is being none in the name of Jesus! This stuff have been going on for years. You see a lot of my brothers snd sisters in Christ, only knows about their little churches in their little circles. And have no idea what is going in a lot of others! God has showed us by OT examples to let us know, the things that was going to happen in our times. And that time is upon us. It is bad out here! Most do not know how terrible it is. and some of these women! Teaching the bible out here, and these pastors are going along with it. i wish i could show you how this woman is teaching the Bible, She is teaching the Bible truthfully without error, but is how she is teaching it. This type of stuff has been going on for years! In the homes of members having bible classes. Drinking and dancing in churches, on night out for husband and wives. in a christian setting!

It is so bad out here , that many do not know how bad it is. "Gay night at the church social makes a safe haven"! and i understand.

You cannot say anything , christians attack you if you say something about the church practices! this stuff has not just pop up, "The Great Compromise." But the world loves its own and we should not interfer. for the world will be the world, but at least know "the signs of the times".

i just had to vent a little, because sometimes it seems you are all alone and no one sees the things you see, but only a few and you only run across a fellow traveler so far in between.

At what age you became a christian
20

and if you had children, what age did they become christians?
Various ages, and one never did - yet.

And do you think, "Judas" was a christian,
There WERE NO Christians until After the Ressurection,

And is not the Pope a "Christian"?
He doesn't act or talk like one, He Appears to be nothing more than a religious Universalist.

And how are "followers of Christ" to act,
That's all covered nicely in the Bible READ IT, and find out what it says, For a Born Again Christian, the Holy Spirit is the one who leads into righteousness.

One can be born into a Christian family through either parent, which is similar to the Jewish Faith, which I believe is through the mother's heritage and not the fathers, and so you are a Jew, but to be of that faith, again as with Christians, you must have certain prerequisites to satisfy that faith (religion).
 
Active
So there are different definitions of a "christian" or how to become one. your example: being born of a christian parent. That is one example. Good.

John 13:34-35 KJV
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.


That's as cut and dry as it gets.

Then there's those who see too much, and I have been there for a long time. So what comes to mind for me now is, to stop looking at those things, and to strengthen those things that are good.

I do understand and see you are trying to stretch your wings. But, that is good too, but you are "Missing the Mark"!
I do perceive you do not understand the variations of "Evangelistic Work" from The "Edification of The Saints of God" nor The Skillfulness of The Handler of "The Word of GOD" who has been taught by God. And those who knows how to "Handle a "Pack of Wolves". "Behold, I send in the mist of Wolves.

(Matthew 10).
16Behold, I am sending you out like sheep among wolves; therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17But beware of men; for they will hand you over to their councils and flog you in their synagogues. 18On My account, you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19But when they hand you over, do not worry about how to respond or what to say. In that hour you will be given what to say. 20For it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

Sir I do not know How many 100's or thousands of people you have stood before in councils and Christian Conferences, And felt that "Spiritual Pressure" pressing against your soul as You present "The Unadulterated Truth" and you hear That devil in the back ground of your mind, "IF you say it, I am going tear your house down" you better not say it! and you know he is going to do it , someway or another, because he has done it before" and GOD has warn you all ready. "Simon, Simon," You were bought with a price' Then the Power of GOD comes upon you and Cannot Hold it Back! And you stand there speaking "Listening to your own Voice" as if it was "Thunder" and you can see The Crowd before you "Stop" as if they have been "STUN" and not a sound is heard and you wonder what do they see. And after it is a sense of ponder. And Only a True Child of GOD, can see what I am talking about, for you can see it in the "Spirit of GOD" from whom you was born. for the Words I speak are Spiritual and not flesh.

American Standard Version
"Simon, Simon, behold, Satan asked to have you, that he might sift you as wheat:" To many The Devil is a just a word, To many the Devil is just trouble, To many The devil is to be "Rebuke" who is a weaking by their words, not realizing "That he belongs to GOD the ALMIGHTY" the One Who Created him, And He obey's The GOD who Created him! Foe HIS purpose.

I do understand many are not gifted in certain areas in GOD. So I will say this, do not fret, in essence, you do not know how bless you are:pensive:
Jesus, has been more bless than all, but it came with a "Terrible, Terrible, a Terrible Price. He suffered more than anyone could ever imagine.

17This I say therefore, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, 18being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; 19and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality, for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness. 20But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 22that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
(Ephesians 4) NASB.

Shalom, My brother and Sisters in Christ Jesus our LORD. I been in Christ for Over 40 years, The number of speaking engagement i don't know. Not my will, or desire. But called and Chosen. And I do know, a lot on "TalkJesus" understands what I am talking about! It is always only one path, one way, and One LORD! We are the ones who have no "Freewill" But was purchase by God, paid in full to become "SLAVES" That has only One MASTER {LORD]. NOT OUR WILL but your will, not our mind, our mind is your mind. "For we have the mind of Christ" :pensive:

(1 Cor 2)ASV.
14Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged. 15But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, and he himself is judged of no man. 16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

[For we are "The Sons of The Living GOD"] and it does not yet appears what we will be, but when we see HIm, we will look just like HIm :pensive: We will see Him as He is!

The Christian name has been soiled over the many centuries. Its label is really meaningless now sadly. To be a follower of Christ, you have to strip yourself mentally, spiritually and for some physically and be reborn. What you thought was the truth is a lie, who you thought Jesus was , is a lie, thinking that your character and possibly appearance is pleasing to the lord is a lie. It means a total rebirth, of mind, body and soul, and a TOTAL rejection of the world. Forget the politics, forget the covid19 hoax, forget the new Chevrolet malibu, all of it is irrelevant. Total focus on Jesus and his journey, all or nothing.

So, that is your reply to the question of the thread?
"Who has Label you a "Christian" have you label yourself or have someone else label you a Christian and by who's definition"

And we are not on "One Accord" i see, but divided. Because I see you also have "Miss the Mark" of A "Evangelistic Target" And maybe you too, have not the "Gift" of a "Evangelist" and you have not the Knowledge and learned skills, taught by GOD to do so. Anyone can throw a "Hook" attached to a Fishing Line in a pond and catch a fish. But when Fishing for a certain type of Game Fish, you have to be a skill Fisherman, The right lure, the right testing line, the correct Spin and pole. and IF you have to set the Hook or let it run, once the Fish has taken the Bait. Fishing from the right position and time of day. I am fishing, and you are "Jet Sking" across the "Waters"! Now if you want to help, answer a simple question.
please. and watch:pensive: quietly with patience.

American Standard Version
"And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing".

(Matthew 4)NASB 1977 copyright.
18And walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20And they immediately left the nets, and followed Him.

Sir ,I am also a "Fisherman".


American Standard Version
And WE know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose.

Indeed, if I was to write my testimony from birth it would be a novel the size of war and peace. Be at peace, all is going according to plan and scripture.

For as much as I understand, I have even less to say about what it is I know.

I really do prefer peace; anything else is a waste of time.

you sure did sir, answer the questions, and far as I am concern, there is no wrong answers, just wanted to know how many ways, people came to honor that banner and label. If you say, you are a "christian", I take your word, that you are one, I am no judge , in such matters, for you are the one who knows, what you are. I don't know you, you do. For I do not declare that "I am a christian" I am not one! And I know myself better than any other person, And I will not be found a liar, I know myself! But others have called me one, and I have told them I am not, but I am a "son of GOD" and washed in the blood of Jesus and Born of HIS Spirit. And I have Three Witnesses: "The Father, The Word, and The HOLY Ghost"!

And many have also "testified" and told me, "You do not act like a Christian" you act like a "Prophet of Doom" That is the GOD of The Old Testament, and that is how GOD use to be, for now we Have a God of love that is express threw Jesus Christ. I guess I am "Old Schooled" So there are some who do not believe I am a "christian" and they are so right. When you look at me and my ways, you will not see "The likeness of Christ", But one Day, You Will, I am going to look, " JUST Like Him"!

King James Version
"Beloved, NOW are we the "sons of God", and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." (1 John 3).

He That Have A ear [
CAPACITY οὖς (ous)] to hear, Let them Hear!:cool:

Now that is what we young Preachers used to call "HOT off the WIRE"! When we Preached to one another, in "closed sessions" laymans and women were not allowed! for the doors were LOCKED! And The Fire of GOD would pour Down Like a Hammer! Only for The Strong!, No more Days like that.

And thank you ""Bob Carabbio"
for your replied "post 15":cool:
