In Identifying Yourself, Try ‘Follower of Jesus’ — A Quote by Carl Medearis in “Muslims, Christians, and Jesus”

“I learned a long time ago that thinking of myself as a ‘Christian missionary’ was the quickest way to lose the interest of new friends [in the Middle East], let alone an audience. I simply tell people that I’m a follower of Jesus, and usually, with a little explanation, things aren’t so guarded and tense. Jesus doesn’t come loaded with bias, prejudice, conflict, or war. Christianity often does.”
