Can one be a Christian if one doesn’t do Christian things?
I don't think this has to do with individual "things" (ie. sins), but rather the condition of one's soul. Can I look at porn and still be a Christian? Yes. Can I look at porn for years on end without the slightest bit of guilt or feeling that I'm doing something wrong? No. If the latter case describes you, then you lost your Christianity somewhere along the way. But you did not lose your Christianity because of the actual act of sinning. The sinning is just a manifestation of a deeper problem: your soul has become darkened. All sins can be forgiven, but a person who has a darkened soul cannot be forgiven because he will not embrace that forgiveness.
‘Wisdom! Be attentive!’
