This question, on the endless stream of paperwork that I have completed in my short life, seems to stump me always.
Christian, the word, came to mean the collective followers of Christ. I, being baptised into His death am a Christian, I follow and walk with Him in the journey that is my life on this earth. This is how I see it. Society wants more.
The word religion comes from the latin, Religare ‘to bind.’ What is my religion? What do I bind myself to? Thinking honestly, it is not always Jesus who is first in my thoughts. But I am in His. Religion is blamed for so much, wars and death, persecution and judgement, but religion is a manmade ideal, and as such is not without Sin.
This video illustrates why Jesus is greater than Religion.
With my blue or black pen, entirely in block letters, I will write Christian, for that is my religion.
In my life, I will love Jesus, for He is my Saviour.
Jesus>Religion. Know the difference.
