Christian or disciple of Jesus Christ?

Ask someone who goes to church: Are you a Christian?

You’ll most likely get a yes.


Ask the same person if he/she is a "Christ-follower" or a disciple of Jesus Christ-- and you’ll get an array of answers or a blank stare.

Culturally, being a Christian is often separate from following Christ. Biblically, it's difficult to find that distinction.

You are right. We who follow Christ think that Christian means one thing, while somebody who went to church now and then when a child may think it means something else. All you have to do is look at national polling and see the large numbers of "Christians" who don't believe Jesus is the only way to heaven or that the Bible is inspired or that God created.
