When I said I was not a Christian…! | For My Christian Friends

First, I want to apologize. I am sorry for just saying that like that.

I will also make this message into a podcast. I go to church every Sunday. I feel that I desire to explain.

I do not care what other people think of me. However, I am sensitive enough not to offend my close church family intentionally.

I talked to my friend Hakim on his web show, and I said a thing…

My statement was, “I am not really a Christian.”

How could I speak such a blasphemous statement when I worship at church every Sunday?

There was a surge inside me after I said it. At first, I thought, “Oh no, you were not supposed to say that.” Then I thought, “Oh God, I meant it.” I did.

(Now listen close before you call, text, or bless me out.)

I believe in the Word of God. I believe in God. I believe in Jesus.

I do not believe some of the teachings I have learned at church:

  • I don’t believe in the power of the Devil to influence our lives.
  • I also haven’t read in the bible that we are supposed to pray in Jesus’ name. (Again, I do believe in Jesus Christ.)
  • I added the scripture Phillipians 2:1-11 below, which is used to explain why we should pray in Jesus’ name. I don’t disagree, but I also choose to live like Christ and not get super caught up in semantics. Though this post is kinda about semantics. *
  • I believe we are free to speak directly with God. (Yes, I know there is one scripture that says no one shall come to the father, but by me. – Jesus. But I’ll discuss that with you more in detail another time.)

That’s it.

I do pray “in Jesus’ name” when I am in a church setting, but seldom when I am not. I speak to God directly and know He is communing with me and me in Him.

Those are two big things in Christendom that I believe personally differently. Does not believing we need to say “in Jesus’ name” make me a non-Christian? Does not believing in the devil make me a non-Christian?

I don’t know. I do know that I move more as a Mystic or a Metaphysician. There are Christian Mystics. Maybe that fits me better. I believe in the Word of God. I am a follower of Christ. Sometimes I feel the label does not suit me. Sometimes I do.

So forgive me, and let’s throw my statement into the Sea of Forgetfulness. I am myself. I am a lover of Christ and all his teachings. I believe in creation, manifestation, prayer, meditation, and healing.

I love you. I did not mean to offend you. I hope that we can come to some understanding. God bless you.

1 Therefore, if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,

then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

In your relationships with one another have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!

Therefore, God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:1-11
