It’s a deeper question than it appears at a glance. I’ve been told this isn’t a name that the early Church gave themselves, but rather a label that was put on them by non-followers-of-Jesus, intended to be offensive. Nowadays, it seems that many are willing – even eager – to identify as Christians, even if they’re not willing to identify with Christ or submit to him. But I’m getting ahead of myself. So let’s move the conversation to the comments section:
What is a Christian?
What is a common misconception about Christians?
What connotations does the word “Christian” carry today?
I’m interested in hearing from believers. But I’m particularly interested in hearing from you if you don’t call yourself a Christian. What does Christianity mean to you?
If you are a Christian, maybe you can ask a friend or acquaintance who isn’t a believer what the term means to them.
