What does it mean to be a Christian?

think it’s important to state from the onset that I cannot reconcile my Christian faith with the religion called Christianity. So I’ve stopped trying. To be a Christian and to be a member of the religion called Christianity do not mean the same to me. I do not believe that Christianity is my religion because I do not consider my Christian faith to be a religion. Consequently, for me, to be a Christian does not mean to be a member of the religion called Christianity.
