The word Christian has many connotations, and depending on one's personal beliefs and experiences, they may be positive or negative. Regardless, we must acknowledge that it has become an extremely polarizing word today.
In Stop Calling Me Christian, author Josh Nelson shares his personal story of faith, where he went from a so-called "Christian" to a man truly dedicated to honoring Christ and applying the gospel in his life. Introducing us to the notion of Phariseeism-a disease of the heart and mind that can leave godly believers blind, hopeless, and standing on a weakened faith-Josh shows how this disease can be cured through listening to and truly hearing God's Word. And by learning about the path of authentic discipleship, you too can discover the life in Jesus that you always desired.
Many of us believe we are living the good Christian life, yet there is a reason why our prayers may seem to go unanswered, as if God is not there. But he is always with us, and we must make it the focus of our lives to seek him and reflect the character of his son.
