Should You Become a Christian? Who Told You To?

This would be considered a weird question by many, I know. But …

Who told those who call themselves Christians to be known as Christians?

Did Jesus command such a thing? If not, what did he ask his followers to be known as?

Did his disciples address each other by the title Christian?

How many times does one find the expressions Christian and Christians in the Bible? And, who uses the expressions?

R. Jerome Harris

No one of importance. A disciple (student) of Christ apart from the established religious systems who reasons, thinks and concludes matters for myself. Something is not right with the state of religion in the world. The real dichotomy is that we live in a world so full of religion, yet is an evil, immoral, and dangerous place to live. A mental and spiritual separation from this world that Jesus said his kingdom is no part of is the first step to a "break-through" to freedom and entry into a much larger spiritual world where God and Christ resides and the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of God can be accessed.

  1. You say Christianity divides Yashua said
    Luke 12:51-53
    Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three. Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”
    NKJV
    For someone who says the Bible is from man you sure like to quot it.
    John 5:39
    You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.
    NKJV
    All scripture testifies of Yashua
    2 Tim 3:16-17
    All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
    NKJV
    I believe in a God that is powerful enough to direct and inspire men to right down His words and direct them to compile them together as He wanted them

    God would not inspire someone to contradict what He has already given us.
    You my friend are a false prophet

    1. I am NOT the subject/topic – am I?

      You “assume” Christianity is from God. I say that it IS NOT and is the foretold deceiver. It is an imposter and counterfeit.

      You “assume” Jesus IS Christianity. Jesus was sent by God. “Christianity was created by men.

      God AUTHORIZED His Son as The Word of God. Men AUTHORIZED (and named) a book called the Bible as the Word of God.

      You “assume” that I quote from “The Bible” that I believe that it is The Word of God. That would be an incorrect assumption. I believe what God Himself has uttered through the Prophets he sent, His Angels, and MOST IMPORTANTLY what His Son teaches. Satan is quoted in “The Bible” many times. Does that make his words “The Word of God?” (They are in the Bible, right?)

      You “assume” that I believe “The Bible” is Scripture. Nowhere in that book does it state that “The Bible’ is Scripture. Not even 2 Tim 3:16. The “assumption” made by “Christianity” is that the Bible is Scripture. The expression “Bible” is not there.

      So one has to define what Scripture is. Scripture is anything that “God Breathes” or “Speaks” and it is written down. The Book of Revelation is the BEST example of Scripture. At Rev 1:1, one learns that God is the GIVER/AUTHOR of the “Revelation” and He gives it to His Son. The Apostle John is told by the Angel to “write down” what he sees.

      No, I am not a false prophet. I am simply someone who knows what Christianity REALLY is and one that does not agree with its false narratives. It is very convenient to label someone a false prophet because they are not in agreement with you.

      False Prophets are exposed and flushed out by the powerful teachings of Christ, The Word of God. When spoken, they agitate the false ones.

      You appear to be agitated.

      If what I write and speak is NOT in alignment with God and Christ, God (not any human) will expose me and shut me down. You do well to read Acts 5:34-39. Do YOU trust God? How do you know that by calling me a false prophet is not fighting against God? You don’t.

      Have you asked the Father for illumination, wisdom, and knowledge? For the truth?

      Many “Christians” (something Jesus NEVER told his followers to be called) go on the offensive and go “emotional” when they are questioned and challenged. Many of them drag Red Herrings by resorting to “unfair” and “immature” name-calling of any who do not agree with them. That in itself shows the depth of knowledge and understanding they have of God and Christ. That understanding has not broken the surface of the skin and reached into the heart. Something else is there. Something sinister and ungodly resides in the hearts of those who claim they believe in God and Christ and conduct themselves in ways unbecoming a follower of Christ. That is not the example he set.

      I trust God and His Son.

      Thank you for labeling me a false prophet. I’ll gladly take that as a “strike of the whip” for Christ’s sake. And, thank you for that expression of “Christian love.”

      Peace to you.
