In these United States of America, it is too easy to be identified as a “Christian.” Jesus never asked anyone to be a Christian, but he required that people who believe in him follow him.

Maybe this will sort out “Christians” in name only, and true followers of Christ.

“you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.10 And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other.11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.” (Matthew 24:9-13 NLT)
