I know this may sound impossible as the word "Christian" usually is understood as "believer in Jesus," but please look at why I question whether they are really the same thing: If a person believes in Jesus, then he is a believer. And maybe this is what it takes to be a Christian, but how Christians define themselves and how they actually should be defined seems very different. Christians go to a church every sunday, do their devotions and pray, get baptized, go on missions trips, listen to Christian music, go to Bible study, go to Christian schools and can get hired at churches, basically they have an entire lifestyle that is built to some degree on a "Christian culture" if you will. So when I see how much Christianity is a lifestyle and is considered a religion by many, I wonder can a believer just be a believer and not do all the extra stuff a Christian does? I have heard there are people who are Catholic and believe in Jesus, and so would they be called Christian or a believer? It seems like there has to be a distinction.
