51. Have you ever seen me call myself christian?

Labeling me is what others around here do, not me.

As someone said in another thread, there are lots of people who stopped calling themselves christian (at least openly) or hid any evidence of it (like jewelry) after it got co-opted.

However, I would argue for a reclamation. It makes a much more powerful statement.

What would you call Jesus followers who don't want to be associated with the fundamentalist?

Maybe if we can agree on it, we could start using it to make the much needed differentiation.
