      Allow me to clarify since you gentlemen prefer to not ask what I mean ...

      As Christians we BELIEVE the Christ and forgiveness of sins that He won at the cross for us. THAT is our identity and anything we do after initially believing/trusting does not make us any more of a Christian. A sheep does not become any more of a sheep because he lives in the valley with the shepherd...he already is. An adopted child does not become more of an adopted child by learning more about His Father and doing chores for him.

      Why not? Mine are changed occasionally. And the fact remains that "Christian" means "follower of Christ".
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      As Admin of this site I'm saying DO NOT edit quoted posts so that you're changing what the author wrote.

      I will make a post in the Community forum with specific details on what and what is not acceptable so that this thread can get back on topic.

      Do as you please; make a new rule if you want to.

      How about just getting back on topic like I suggested?
