Christianity has many trappings, whether you are in a 'smells and bells' tradition or not, and frankly too often we trust those trappings and forget reality. Reality is that Christianity, as it is perceived by insiders and outsiders, is a mixed bag. The same Christianity that boasts Billy Graham and Mother Theresa must also confess holocaust silence and crusade culpability. Only one thing is important: Jesusâincarnated, crucified, resurrected, and reigning. So, if the term âChristianityâ causes a genuine seeker to miss Jesus, do we dump the term? downplay the term? try to explain the term?
