CARNIVAL CHRISTIANS

What’s a "Carnival Christian?" A Carnival Christian is someone who enjoys the fun. Someone who gets caught up in the excitement of cheering for Jesus, but sometimes has a hard time taking a personal stand for him when the crowd isn’t around. Commitments for them are difficult to keep. And because of that, apart from the crowd, the Christian lifestyle isn’t always evident in them.

Maybe you’ve been to a big Christian gathering where there was excitement in numbers. Like Promise Keepers. Great times of worship, great times of learning, a big crowd. Easy to be a Christian there. Easy to applaud Jesus in a setting like that. It’s easy to applaud Jesus when you’re in a crowd that’s already giving him applause. Then you go home. Then what?
