There is a Facebook discussion going on on a page I cannot see, but this is the question sent to me from someone who can:
Is the person who said this a Christian? I’m anxious to hear from all of my FB friends! “Christianity was not invented by Constantine at the council of Nicia, it was invented by God with the resurrection of Christ”
Since when does one statement make someone a Christian? Especially such a fact-based one. Since neither of those answers are correct, how could answering them either make one or keep one from being a Christianity? Knowing the exact date when Christianity began (there is no exact date) does not make you a Christian any more than believing in the Historical Jesus does.
Does it come down to believing in a literal resurrection? Hardly. I’ve seen people who don’t believe be better Christians than those who do. Separation. Corning. That is what these debates are all about.
