When a ministry is too embarrassed to use the name ‘Christ’ and feel it ‘gets in the way’ then it is clear they are neither a Ministry nor Christian.
This is a really sad turn of events. Satan is working overtime at Campus Crusade for Christ (and I don’t really care if they are offended at my using the Name Christ.)
I would hope (and pray) that their donors refuse to give them one dime until they return Christ to His Ministry. And Jesus Wept.
From Fox News:
One of the nation’s most prominent Christian ministries has decided to take Christ out of its name – a move that has generated cries of political correctness from within the evangelical community.
Campus Crusade for Christ International announced this week that it will change the name of its U.S. Operations to “Cru” in early 2012.“We felt like our name was getting in the way of accomplishing our mission,” said Steve Sellers, the vice president for Campus Crusade, noting that the ministry will still be committed to “proclaiming Christ around the world.”
Sellers said researchers found that 9 percent of Christians and 20 percent of non-Christians were alienated by the name Campus Crusade for Christ
