      It is too facile to say that Christian means whatever any church
      calling itself Christian says it means. I'd suggest Christian
      means the use of a standard set of words such as Jesus, Gospel,
      Christ, Salvation, Cross. Same for e.g. Buddhism. You cannot
      define Christian (or Buddhist) in terms of any particular meanings
      assigned to those words.
