Campus Crusade for Christ Drops “Christ” From It’s NameJuly 22, 2011 10:47 am Christian Political Views
So what is a Christian group that drops “Christ” from it’s name. In my opinion, it is no longer a Christian group! Why are they dropping the term “Christ?” Political correctness. It “offends” both Christians and non-Christians, they say, so they are dropping it.
“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.”
Unless Christians “get over” kind of stupid acquiescence to the world, we will never be the champions for God that He wants us to be! I was never in Campus Crusade for Christ in college, I was in Full Gospel Student Fellowship, but if I was a previous member, I would let them know that they are misguided and missing the mark!
