I have made no claim whatsoever as to any of the tenets as my position does ny require me to do so; I have claimed only that if you do not follow all of those tenets, whatever they are, you are not a Christian. The trurh of this is self-evident.You refuse to list the tenets of Christianity, therefore I doubt you even know them.
If YOU want to argue that there is only one single tenet on Christiantiy, that's up to you -- I wish you luck in your effort -- but thus far, you have not done so; you have argued that Christianity has one major and, necessaryto your statements, a number of other tenets.
My response to that is that if you do not follow all those tenets, whatever they are, then you are not a Christian. This is an undeniable truth.
Prove this.I will state this clearly.
The only tenet of Christianity is the belief that Jesus is the son of God and the Messiah.
Remember that the emphasis in the above statement is yours.
John 3:16 "For god so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life."
What's the 1 tenet? Belief in the only-begotten Son, sent by God.
Does John 3:17 mention something about hating on gays?

The first is to accept Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Messiah. This is a necessity, for anything else he would say would be meaningless otherwise. The second was the commandment for his followers so that anyone may know that they are his and his alone...
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
Thus a Christian is someone who accepts Jesus as their lord and savior, while at the same time, loving other Christians unconditionally no matter what they believe or how they behave.
There is my argument of the Christian belief system. It's more than you have provided in this entire thread.
]I'll revise my earlier statement and argue there are two tenets to being a Christian.
Already changing your claim. How droll.
How many more times do you plan to do that?
Great. Prove this to be true.Thus a Christian is someone who accepts Jesus as their lord and savior, while at the same time, loving other Christians unconditionally no matter what they believe or how they behave.
