What does it take to be a Christian?

I was asked: What (in your opinion) would you say those "fundimental tenants of the faith that when not embraced/believed will potentially exclude them".

My response was:

In short, confess, believe, Jesus is Lord and Savior, He raised from the dead, and He was/is both man and God. Those would be the core elements. I think scripture is clear on that. Now how God judges that those requirements are met I cannot fathom.

Personally, I would add subscription to the Trinity, the Creatorship of God, the virgin birth, the future return of Christ, the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, and the judgement. These would be the "1A" beliefs though.

What do you think? Leave me a comment.
