1000 characters max, yet I keep getting cut off well before then, odd. The last word of my post should have been "minority".
I guess now I have more room and can further elaborate. People who self identify as Christian are the majority in America. If we're going to play the "who is Christian enough?" game, then we either say that only the people in Denomination X are Christian enough, or that anyone who agrees on the basic fundamentals of what we consider Christian doctrine is. If we go with choice A, then you`re a right wing nut job and definitely in the minority. But most Christians would go with choice B and say that anyone who believes in Jesus as their savior is okay and the rest is just details. In that case, you`re in the majority of Americans.

@ukulelemike - By "Christian enough" I mean exactly what I said. Conservative fundamentalist protestant groups are so quick to dismiss anyone who believes even slightly different than them, so to them these people don't count as "real" Christians. Calvinists think Arminians aren`t Christian enough, charismatics think non-tongue-speakers aren`t Christian enough, conservative Christians think liberal Christians aren`t Christian enough, etc etc etc. Sure we can include fringe groupls like Mormons and JW`s but there`s really no need, mainstream protestants have done a pretty good job of narrowing down the list to only their particular group. Ever wonder why there`s over 20,000 protestant denominations in the US alone? Ever notice how the church next door thinks the church down the street is full of fake Christians?
I don`t know what church you go to, but chances are you agree on the same fundamentals as 90% of American protestants, so therefore you`re not in th

@deeplick - "FaLa620 you know nothing about the bible, it's proof is not of things unforeseen but of things that happen."
On the contrary, I`m thinking it`s you who knows nothing about the Bible, seeing as how what I said was a direct quote from scripture and you`re trying tell me that`s not what faith is. Hebrews 11:1 bro.
Since this is something so obvious that I missed it, please tell me some of these predictions in the Bible that have come true, I`d love to hear them.
