A follower of Christ. Period. Just like politically I don't consider myself belonging to a party but simply faithful to the Constitution. I can't imagine aligning myself with a label apart from that of the name of Christ.

I voted #7 because I don't really understand all of those labels. BUT, after reading Charity's post I think that I agree with her and would probably change my vote to none of the above.

Won't label myself, other than to say I'm a follower of Christ Smile.

I used to label myself a little more freely, but I keep hearing "[This group] believes this" or "[That group]" is fighting for these things"... and found that what I thought I understood and belonged to encompassed a lot of stuff I didn't actually believe and/or that other folks defined things differently from my understanding...so I don't really get into the labels any more.


Blessings,
Lisa R.

I label when whomever I'm talking to seems to be handicapped or trying to pigeon hole or to just try to explain some things/clarify my stance. Pretty much Torah observant, Messianic/Hebrew Roots (though all of those terms are then crippled by the other party's assumptions and interpretations of what those entail...and, in fairness, by other people carrying the same label).

Awww - thanks! I was just reading through the options wondering if anything was going to even remotely fit... And I see someone else is sharing "my" style!

Fundamentalist, using elizabby's definition, from way back. Which is probably NOT what you mean, Teri.


(So I have skewed the poll!)

I like this statement, Jamie. I chose "Evangelical" since I believe the "good news" is to shared. I have been told by a number of people that most christians they meet are inconsistent with what they do and say.

Pastor... is the office Scriptural?  God has from the beginning ordained that there be those who have the gift and responsibility of leadership, both within the confines of the family, as well as the broader context of the Church.  Church history shows that all of the major assemblies had a plurality of elders but it seems clear that the Biblical pattern shows one leading elder (called a pastor or bishop) who is responsible for the direction and oversight of the local assembly.
