    Yeshua (Jesus) was not a Christian.

    Jesus was the first Christian, Wyrd.

    Are you a gnostic, per chance?

    Yeshua was a zombie, not a Christian. Paul and Barnabas started the Christian religion in Antioch = Acts 11:25-26.

    Unfortunately there are far too many people claiming to be Christians who are not.

    Showing up at church once a year for Easter does not make you a Christian.

    Good point... he was a Jewish Rabbi and from what some near death experiencers have been shown his teachings may have been shockingly in line with those of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov... his grandfather the Baal Shem Tov...... or near death experiencer and Orthodox Jewish Rabbi Alon Anava?!

    One near death experiencer heard Rabbi Yeshua - Jesus teach the following to some of his disciples:

    Correct. Many are simply lying, and are really atheists.

    According to many Christians most Christians are not Christians and the Christians who are not Christians say those Christian are not Christians leaving me to wonder if anyone is actually Christian to Christians.

    Not really.

    I've heard other people claim that I believe in the wrong things but never that I'm not a believer.

    It doesn't take long to see if a person is really attempting to follow the teachings of Christ.

    Christ is in Christians. He said He would abide in them. Guess you are considering the wrong people Christians.
