Christianity is not mentioned once in the bible. The bible is god breathed scripture by which we are called to live. It is freedom, life, power…NOT CHRISTIANITY!
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”- Matthew 7:13-14
If the road i have to follow is so narrow and only a few find it, I refuse to accept any guidance for this road unless it comes from the creator of my narrow road, he is the ONLY one who knows the way. He is enough.
Why would I follow a religion that wasn’t created by the Creator?!
I WILL STAND UP AND BE A MAN OF GOD AND LIVE THE WAY SCRIPTURE TELLS ME TO. I WILL SUBMIT TO GOD ALONE AND ACCEPT THE BLOOD OF JESUS AS MY SOURCE OF PURITY AND CLEANSING.
I WILL NOT CALL MYSELF A CHRISTIAN, I WILL ONLY STRIVE TO BE A MAN OF GOD WHO LIVES IN A WAY THAT LEADS TO ANYONE WATCHING ME TO CALL ME A CHRISTIAN.
THIS WORD LITERALLY MEANS CHRIST LIKE.
IF MY LIFE IS FULL OF THINGS OF THIS WORLD, I AM NOT CHRIST LIKE AND IT IS AN INSULT FOR ME TO CALL MYSELF CHRIST LIKE, BECAUSE THAT WOULD SIMPLY MEAN THAT I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT CHRIST IS LIKE.
I know i fall short of what is required to call myself Christ like, but I will make it my life mission to push for a life that reflects the love of God to the world. If I am called Christian along the way, it will be an amazing compliment, but as much as I love it, I cannot simply label myself as that without the work required to be that.
“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”- Philippians 3:13-14
