A Christan is somebody who believes in and has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into their heart. They follow his teachings to the best of their ability including the laws of the Ten Commandments found in The Bible. The Bible is more than just book of history. It is the Word of God written by men inspired by the Holy Spirit. Only by becoming a Christina can one reach Heaven. If they do not, they go to Hell when they die. There is no in between. To believe in Christ and accept him and become a Christian -- it is a choice everyone who has ever, and will ever live must make.
