I'm going to have to disagree with that :x) Christianity isnt about belonging to any "religious organization", but about the teachings of a particular person. Many (possibly many, many) people are Christians without belonging to a church, and to some it's actually a point of pride to put "spirituality" before "religion".[1] Er. I had a point. ... Ah, that point being that while many/most Christian churches require baptism for their members, not all Christians belong to such churches. *Muke! [1] In what is possibly the most amazing inversion I have ever seen, there is a church nearby here whose sign--not one of those adjustable-letter ones, but a big printed one with a logo and everything--proudly proclaims the church is about "relationships, not rules and rituals". To which I say: ceci n'est pas un church. --
