Brammer takes issue with my criticism of using Christ follower instead of Christian, though he seems to agree with me that the reason for the popularity of the term is discomfort with how the culture views us.
I’ve got some bad news, until we live as Christ, the Christian or Christ-Follower image will not change.
Actually, it won’t even then. The world does not like us because it does not like the cross. A sinner’s attitude toward Christians will have absolutely no bearing on the deadness of his or her heart or the Holy Spirit’s power to bring it to life.
Only Christ lived as Christ, and look what his culture did to him.
