All disciples of Jesus Christ are christians, but are all christians true disciples?


What does it take to be a true disciple? And why do many who state they are christians never call themselves or see themselves as disciples? How many times have you heard some say; I am a disciple of Jesus Christ? Many call themselves Bishop, Pastor, Prophet and other things, but never a disciple. Why? Isn't a true follower of Christ a disciple?

    PandN- True disciple of Jesus Christ are the ekklesia and as such, they are, as you mentioned, citizen of His Kingdom. The pew-warmer disciples seek church of men. In all cases we need to be careful about "what" is the desire of our hearts. Thank you

    i cant agree that wishing for anyone to receive everything they desire. Scripture says He will provide all our needs not desire. Many have been destroyed because they got their "desires" which were not of God.

    connorj- Thank you for your answer and insight. I do believe we should be as much like Jesus was/is as possible. True discipleship does require that we give up on all worldly things as we should seek the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness. Thanks.
