Blackbird Press – Does “Christian” Still Mean Anything?

Of my sixty “friends” that self-identified as being followers of Jesus Christ in some form or another, only thirteen explicitly labeled themselves as “Christian,” a mere 21.6%!

Several others had “Christian” but with some additional qualification, be it denominational or specifically doctrinal:

• “Christian—Bapist” – 4 people
• “Christian Catholic,” – 2 people
• “Christian – Assemblies of God is the type of Church I go to”
• “Christian – Reformed, SOLI DEO GLORIA!!!”
• “Christian saved by faith in Jesus Christ”
• “Christian – The chief end of man is to Glorify God and enjoy Him forever”
and so on.

What does this mean? Read the whole article HERE. It is worth it.
