Question> Can You Be A Christian Agnostic (It's like a Vegan Big Mac Eater I Guess?)
I question my faith.
I have prayed a prayer and wonder if I am a Christian or if there is a Jesus or God.
Can you be a Christian/Agnostic?

Young man I pray this gives you assurance.
First of all faith comes from above-it is God sent.
Romans 10:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Faith is not generated by your thoughts or actions.
It is God given.
God sent His Son to live a perfect life and to die for the sins for all who repent and believe.
This is only when he sends the Holy Spirit to convict you of your sins.
13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
Your Creator knows you better than yourself.
Do you really think He will not save you because of what you perceive as your physical or mental condition? Of course He does not.
The work of Christ- and not your works- makes you a new creation.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Jesus Christ said you must be saved or “born again”.
New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
You do not get half-way saved. You are saved or not saved. Only God or you know.
God wants you to be saved.
2 Peter 3:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
The Apostles hid in terror after Christ was crucified.
After they saw the resurrected Christ they gladly faced lynching and murder to share the lifesaving gospel.
It is not you it is Christ who saves.
Trust in the work of Christ nor you.
He is the Savior.
I urge you to pray-repent and declare Jesus Christ as Lord.
And Trust Him.
