Why are we being defined by this word “Christian” that has so many painful and destructive memories connected to it. Our lives should not be shaped by a word like this, but should shape words like these. So many have said that they are Christian (stating that their lives are being shaped by the very life of Jesus Christ), but they do not believe in the virgin birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They do not love, respect and embrace each and every living being as Jesus Christ did. He (Jesus Christ) said that to love is to lay down your life for your friends, and then He died for them!!
May we only live our lives as we choose to follow Him, and then be ‘accused’ of being Christian. True Christianity is not a claim but an accusation!!
“Christianity is at its best when it is peculiar, marginalized, suffering, and it is at its worst when it is popular, credible, triumphal, and powerful”.
