I would start by answering the question on the simplest, definition level first. That is, the word nominal means "in name only." So, a nominal Christian is a person who is one in name only rather than a genuine one. They are perhaps only culturally Christians, or think they are one because they grew up going to church, or they go to church now, etc., but have not been truly converted and been born again by the Holy Spirit.
I agree with David! I was raised as a traditional Catholic, now I`m born again by the Holy Spirit.
I also appreciate and agree with David's comment!
I agree with David. I dated a man briefly and thought he was a born again Christian. Very quickly I began to see that a nominal Christian can talk the talk but not walk the walk. Look for fruit in a man's life. Look at his friends--like attracts like. If the Holy Spirit is at work in him, the fruit of the Spirit will be evident in his character. I ended the relationship...why marry a nominal Christian-a pretender-when the real thing is out there!
