It’s commonly accepted in America’s society to call yourself Christian and act as if you aren’t. I think it’s almost expected from those that call themselves Christians. If you look at what the word Christian means, you will find that it translates as little Christ. Wikipedia says the following about Christians: ”one who lives according to the teachings of Jesus.” If this statement was actually acted out in the lives of those that claim Christ as their savior, then the world would be a very different place. I think we see more cultural Christians. Wikipedia defines Cultural Christians as those that: “Do not view Jesus as essential to salvation. They are the least likely to align their beliefs or practices with biblical teachings, or attend church. They favor a universal theology that sees many ways to God.” How scary is that!??
This reputation must be changed. The only way it can change is if we, “Christians,” change it. Can you sing a little song “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson.
