If you are not married and living with someone, can you call yourself a Christian?

I believe that if I have a personal relationship with GOD and I commit myself to one person, then YES I am a christian. I agree with what the lady pastor said 100%
Let he who is without sin, throw the first stone. We are NOT saved by our deeds, but by our faith that Jesus is Lord. Sin of living together is no greater or less than any other sin. We as people categorize sin, but God looks at ALL sin the same. If sin separates us from Christianity, then NONE of us can truly call ourselves Christians.
The bible says that if you believe with your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ died, buried and rose again for your sins, you are saved “a Christian”. You can be a christian living in sin.
Being a Christian simply means that you believe in the teachings and practices of Christianity. Obeying the word of God and being saved by the blood of Jesus is another thing entirely. Living with the opposite sex and not being married is a direct contradiction to the bible and the direction given to us by God. Any person that is claming to be saved and living a Christian should be following all the teachings of Christ, that includes obstaining from sex and not living in sin with another person.
You can call yourself a Christian because of your beliefs even if you’re living in sin. However. As a Christian, You should be mindful that the effectiveness of your ministry or your testimony is being affected by your behavior, which is contrary to how God wants you to be living as one of his children.
With all that so called Christians do these days I don’t know what a christian is. With that being said I have yet to see anywhere in the bible where it says there has to be a signing of a piece of paper or jumping of the broom to be deemed married and if you look at the divorce rate you can see that this piece of paper and these elaborate weddings means absolutely nothing. I think marriage is of the heart and if two hearts are truly married then you wont have the kind of adultery that is so prevalent. So yes in my opinion you can live with someone and be sexually involved with them and still call yourself a Christian or whatever else you want to be called.Until scripturally proven otherwise this is what I believe.
I told my kids we’d play after I found what I neeedd. Damnit.
You got to push it-this essenatil info that is!
I I believe if you are miserable in a relationship and someone else comes alone with game, He/She can take you away for the bad relationship. Sometimes that’s what one need, is another person to come alone a help you make the decision to leave a not so healthy relationship. We are so afraid of being alone, so we stay in bad relationships until something we preceive is better comes along. Then we decide to leave. They have not taken you away, you have finally realize the relationship you were in was not a good one.
This makes the other person feel that have stolen you away, when in reality you just came alone at the right time, and push him/her into something new.
