The teacher asked the class: "What does it mean to be Christian?" The class, made up completely of Christians, raised their hands. The first student answered: "To be nice." In addition, the other students added "help each other" and "love one another" to the answer, "to be nice." The teacher responded, "So, according to your definitions, a nice Muslim or a nice Hindu would be Christian?"
1) Are "nice Hindus" Christian?
2) What is missing from the students answers?
3) describe why a classroom of Christians would focus on "nice?"
4) How significant, in Christian theology, is treating one other?
5) How does "Free Will" impact Christian theology, especially in terms of the belief in an afterlife; where the good are rewarded and evil punished?
