I Don’t Like “Christians”

I’m not a fan of the word “Christian” to describe me or others in the Church.  It’s too passive.  It should describe what we do, like “disciple” or “follower of Christ.”

“Christian” appears only 3 times in the Bible.  “Disciple?”  260!

It means “learner” or “pupil.”  So we are to learn and obey Jesus.  So a disciple is always growing; transformation should be the norm.

Disciples don’t just believe differently; they behave differently.
