Well that's how I view it, but then again I'm not Christian- so I'll let them all fight over it between themselves. But personally I'm quite happy to lump Roman Catholocism into the Christianity category.

I really don't understand those Christians who deny Roman Catholocism as being 'Christian': it's been around a LOT longer than the other Christian religions have. For instance, Protestantism became a visable movement in Europe in the early 1500's- when there had already been a Pope for a long time. And then there are those religions like that of the Jehovah's Witnesses, which I believe was founded in the 1870's: once again, Catholocism has been around a LOT longer. However, I've heard those that say the Witnesses aren't to be considered Christian either...*shakes my head in confusion*
In my opinion. If your symbol is a cross and Jesus is your god. You ARE a christian. But i also consider satanists to be christian. Because they (as i understand it) do believe in Christ. They just don't like him.

Hmmm, please elaborate.  Believing in Christ does not make one Christian -- Believing that Christ is the Savior does.

E.G.:  I believe Christ existed (a prophet of sorts) but he is not my god, nor is he, to me, the Savior, ergo, I am not Christian.

That is what i meant by believing in Christ. As a savior Or as a deity. I believe a person of that name did exist, but was nothing more than a martyr.
