As several people presented their personal projects
At least five people said they were “religious”
And this word was used to describe their Christian faith
Why not just say “I‘m a Christian”
“I’m a believer”
“I’m a follower of Christ”
“I love God”
My freshman history teacher said it best:
“My faith is very important to me.”
Saying “religious” complicates what can be said so simply
Ironically, they pad their faith in a place where
Religion equals freedom
Are they ashamed?
Is their faith just another trait?
Hi, I’m Filipino, I’m a brunette, and I’m religious
“Religious” sounds constricted, rule-ridden,
Failing to capture the true essence of faith:
It’s like admitting under your breath “I’m a band geek.”
Trying to cover up what you believe to be an embarrassing truth
Why not casually say “I’m a musician. Music is my life.”
Why not proclaim the truth with confidence and transparency?
Is it not your identity?
This label does not capture
The true essence of faith
Just leave it on the book shelves
