I am No Longer A Christian
But, here is the deal. I don’t want to be called a Christian anymore. I cannot stand what a Christian is considered to be in today’s society. Every time someone talks about Christians, it is negative. So many people who claim to be a Christian act like idiots and spew crap out of their mouths. Almost any religion or denomination can say they are “Christian” and they do. I read story after story about how people want nothing to do with the church because of the way “Christians” have treated them. I have a revelation for you…They aren’t Christians!
Don’t qoute 2 Timothy 3:12 to me either, cause this doesn’t have anything to do with that. We will be persecuted for “His name sake”, but being persecuted for Him and being persecuted for being wrapped into a group of people is another thing. I wish so desperately there was something we could do to quench the ferver in all of these people that are destroying the name of Jesus and what it means to truly be Christian. I will work my butt off to be a person that displays the love of my God. I will go out of my way to declare what it truly means to live for Christ. I just don’t want to be wrapped up into some idea of what people think being a Christian is. I want them to see me and then make up their minds.
I hear a lot of people calling themselves Christ-Followers. I think that is cool, I really like it, but is it just because people have destroyed the title Christian? Do we have to find a different title? What can we do to reclaim “Christianity”? For those who don’t believe, why is it so often that you dont want to get to know me, purely based on what some other so called “Christian” has said or done?
I know I am venting…forgive me. I am not a scholar and these are just my feelings. If you want to know what started this, go check out this article…
