Post Faith Name
I have long been aware of the differing branches and denominations of Christianity but recently I have come across some who do not call themselves a Christian. They prefer to use the names of "Jesus follower" or "Jesuist". I have also learned of a group from the atheist persuation who also consider themselves as Jesuist because they feel there is importance in the teachings of Jesus but do not agree with the faith that Jesus was said to have. (By this I mean Judaism because to my understanding Jesus was not a Christian).

I have also heard of many followers of Jesus who do not like to call themselves Christians. What once surprized me were the Atheists who followed the teachings of Jesus the Christ not because they believed that He was a Messiah or Prophet, but because they found His ethical teaching to be of value.

That does not surprise me. Many think that because someone is an atheist they are not interested in the spiritual. We in the ULC know that just is not true.
I also believe it is possible for a person to be philosophically a follow of Jesus without adopting any faith.
