Should Afro-Americans call themselves Christians because they follow Christ?


Or should they call themselves another name as Christ-followers? Especially do to history and the people that first started calling themselves Christians, and what they stood for, (if you know what I mean).

    Amen! Gal 3:28-"..There is neither Jew nor Greek,..for ye are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus."

    Have u found the term "Christian" a derogatory phrase used by nonbelievers "in Antioch?"

    Yes, disciples (followers) & if anointed to teach; apostles!

    ALL DENOMINATIONS ARE AN ABOMINATION. GOD says we are (His children) are to be of ONE ACCORD. Just the opposite of what denominations bring.

    Then Acts 2:42 LIED! Disciples of Christ = Apostolic Doctrine = Mature (filled with Holy Spirit w/"understanding" of WORD) = Apostles! (Rev 21:14)

    Because it's a "Spiritual" thing & has nothing to do with "man!"

    I believe in GOD (aka JESUS) according to His "Rightly Divided" Word which is diff fm "religion!" Opposition of their beliefs displays no "severe form of mind control...."
