Maybe There’s a Way to Follow Christ Without Being a Christian

“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle.  That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.”  – Brennan Manning (a Christian)

Maybe Manning should figure out a way to follow Christ without being a Christian.  That is, he could dispense with church and give all his devotion to Jesus.  This is not only possible – it’s desirable from God’s point of view.  See the Overview of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.

Jesus is Lord.  He is everywhere…all the time.  We should stop acting as if this were not true.
