It's better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.

You've probably seen those Mac vs. PC commercials on television. They're cute.

This was put out by Community Christian Church (one church, multiple locations).

While I think this is a bit of a false dichotomy, it's still funny so I enjoyed it. I think you might as well. (Thanks to Doc Mistero for posting it.)

Plus, there's an element of truth because folks tend to project a persona that is fake to appear to be somebody rather than realizing that really we're all nobodies and only Christ is a somebody. Hey, it's all who you know!

Is it better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody? No.

It's only through the realization of our own lack of significance that we can realize our need for the Significant One whose meritorious life & death can make us somebody ... for real, for through faith in the Lord Jesus we are children of God (John 1:12-13).

Seems that Scripture always has other people calling the followers of Christ either "followers of the Way" or "Christians." Is there any reference to any of them proclaiming to title Christian themselves or is it always something identified in and of them by others who see the way they live?

P.S. What can you use to get bumper sticker adhesive off? :) :)

How about the driver weaving in and out of traffic and going twice the speed limit with the ichthus or "Jesus" sticker on back.

That's a good question, Sean. I don't recall any self-description of "Christian" in the NT.

Discourteous drivers with the Jesus propaganda ... heinous and one of my pet peeves.
