Can there be such a thing as a bad Christian.
I meant take RBHill for example..
Hates women.... used the "N" word in posts.
Certainly he is a "Bad Christian" or would he just be a "Failing Christian" by failing to act in a Christian like way towards others at this chess site.
No Flaming of RB either... just discuss are there good and bad christians or only good ones.

He is helping you out. He is pointing out your hypocritical
shortcomings. I've helped you out, too.
However, you fail to change. You fail to adapt. You fail
to make amends. A 'True Believer' would recognize this.

You make a good point RB...
So I am acting in an unChristian manner.
How far would one have to go to be considered bad?
Am I failing , bad, or just imperfect?
PS RB I will be praying for you and It will go along the lines of :
Please help this person of god to love the people he appears to hate.
Please help him to correct the faults in his person ...[text shortened]... o be hated by some. Please do not let others judge us as Christians by his actions alone.

Edit: everyone falls short every day that is what confession is for. Going to God. 1 John 1:9. This is for believers not every one.
1 John 1:9 If we(believers) confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us(believers) our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Obviously no one is perfect, but many people who claim to be christian I have found to be hypocritical and mal-adjusted. The more strong their belief, the more 'bad' they appear to be.
This is not to say all christians are bad; mild mannered non-church goers who just faintly believe to belong can ...[text shortened]... ibit very good behaviour, and I have many friends and family members who fit into this catagory.

Yes, there is your are lost that is why you do not understand.
Originally posted by NemesioWe do not have the originals. Why are you telling him to do the impossible?
There is [b]not. Your flawed translation of the Bible
is what makes you incorrectly believe it. Go to the original
and you will find that your whole faith-construct is predicated
on an error.
