On COM I've come across a variation of Christians that believe in opposition to the bible on some issues, but still call themselves Christians. That baffles me.
One example (not on COM) is Oprah. She believes that Jesus did not come to die for our sins but to show us how to live a human life with "Christ-consciousness", does not believe there is only one way to God as promoted in the bible and believes that heaven is not a destination but an inner realm of consciousness.
If people's beliefs don't coincide with what is written in the Bible, (which is the only source for Christianity as a religion, right?) why do they still call themselves Christians? Why not call yourself something else?
On that basis, what does being a Christian actually mean today?
