Quick Question, If you see the bible as a fictional book, but agree with most of the morals it teaches, does that make you an athiest, or a christian?

Well that's like asking if you read any book and agree with the morals, it makes you a follower of that book.

Example: You read "The Tale of Moral Righteousness" by "Made-Up Author," and you find that many of the lessons taught in the book are lessons you agree with. Would that make you a believer of Made-up-ism (no pun on religion there, just so happened to be that way), or just agreeing with the lessons taught?

You'd be a Christian (or a Catholic or Jewish or whatever other religion you could choose, because what I'm about to say applies to any religion) if you believed in the book and most (if not all) of the things it says, such as God, Noah's Ark, etc., in this particular instance.

If you don't make a full and conscious decision to either believe or disbelieve in the Divinity of the Bible, you would be agnostic. Hope that helps

Actually, he'd be an agnostic atheist, since not believing in god still makes you an atheist.

You don't have to believe in a supreme power by choosing to follow a code of morality.

but you do need to believe in the deity described in the bible to be a christian

not sure what your comment is trying to say

What I'm trying to say is, you can follow those morals, but that doesn't make you a christian or an atheist. Only if you believe in the god Christians believe and their messiahs would you be considered a christian. Keep in mind that a lot of religions have the same morals, but different gods. So if your religion were dictated by the morals you follow, you would find yourself as a follower of a lot of religions at the same time.
