Christ and Religion

Submitted by Stephen Winters

In the Bible it says, "we have the mind of Christ."

What is Christ? What does that mean? How does that practically work out? If Jesus "christ" as the son of God, and if God is love (as we are told), then could it be that the term "christ" is what refers to our motivation, our desire, our wanting to do what is right?

True religion is helping the widows and orphans in their distress. True religion is not true religion because it is call by a particular name. Just because a building or a group of people are called "christian" doesn't mean that they are true followers of God.

After Christ died, his followers were called "the way". Later on the followers "were first called christians at antioch." Was it a name that they took on themselves, or was it a title of derepute that others called them?
