Believe it or not, one of the world's strangest, rarest creatures is an individual called a Christian. This challenging article takes you on an imaginary search for a person who matches the biblical definition. Millions upon millions of people feel they are Christians, that is, they are believers in the Christian religion, as opposed to the beliefs of Islam, Buddha, or Judaism. But once beyond the vague label of "Christian," all similarity stops. "Christians," it seems, come in every conceivable brand, stripe, and description - every size, shape, and ideal. "Christianity," having undergone an evolution in meaning from the first century to the maze of confusing, conflicting beliefs and practices claiming the same title today, is an increasingly difficult word to define. Hundreds upon hundreds of organizations claim the title "Christian"; yet they may be so opposed to one another - not only in theology and theory, but also in some cases in active internecine warfare- that they constitute the bitterest of enemies.
