Top 100 Atheist Challenges

What does it mean to be a Christian? There are over 30,000 different groups, all of which answer this question differently. If agreement cannot be found on THIS issue, can the claims of Christians themselves be taken with any degree of seriousness?

I am much more concerned with what the New Testament teaches than with what any particular Christian or group of Christians may say.  As far as the New Testament is concerned, the central mission of Jesus was to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 10:19).  A Christian, then, is one that he has saved, one who entrusts their standing before God into his hands.  As for the diversity of belief among those who call themselves Christian, this is no more reason to ignore them than the diversity of belief among each individual person is reason to ignore the whole lot of humanity.
