Why I am not a Jesus Follower...

...as opposed to the term "Christian."

"and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians." (Acts 11:26)

Yes the term was given to us by a contemptuous world. Adopting a new name will never escape that derision. Further, we should not try. Peter said,

"However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name." (1 Peter 4:16)

Do not be ashamed of the name.
