Christ-Follower or Christian?

Carla over at More Books and Things has a great read. Here's an excerpt...:

"It was about five or six years ago when I first heard that word. Somehow, a recording is stuck in my head of our pastor walking around on the stage repeating the terms… Christ-followers, Christ consciousness…while I heard the faint tinkling of tiny warning bells in the background. But this was my pastor. My shepherd. It must be okay. So I put the warning bells away. But soon there were other leaders in our church using the vocabulary. We were Christ-followers, the lost were the pre-saved or seekers…it just sounded nicer. I often wondered why we weren’t supposed to call ourselves Christians anymore."
