 When should I call myself a christian

3 We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. 4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. 5 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God[a] is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: 6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

 Re: When should I call myself a christian

May I ask you this how long does one do this before they can call themselves a Christian and must they perform this flawlessly?

*Edit* To clarify I agree with you that this is the way to know if you are a Christian along with the many other tests of 1st John :)

Never!

Let others do that for you.

I was handed a compliment today from another brother. He said, "Brother, you are the most humblest person I know".

To him I am. To me, I question that. But I am not going to argue with him.

Leave it to others. If they see Christ in you, they will acknowledge it by saying, "he belongs to that tribe called Christian."

 Re:

True, but what about denying Christ? Should we not also endeavor to thrust our glorious Savior to the center of all our dealings. And if perhaps someone should take notice of our difference, should we not immediately point the way to the One Who makes us that way?
