Here is a question I have been thinking of. What is the difference between calling yourself a Christian or a Christ follower?
Sub thoughts / questions:
Is there a doctrinal difference? Are the two the same? Is the later just the current trendy name? Does the difference even really matter?
I ask because I read a post by a local pastor some years back saying how boring the word Christain is and how awesome it is to be a Christ follower. I thought the post was in rather poor taste and truthfully has always bothered me when I’ve heard the term Christ follower since. I realize that was just one person sounding off, so maybe I just need to be less sensitive on this topic. Last background point I generally call myself a Christian.
Looking forward to your thoughts.
Cheers and blessings,
