This is Not Christianity: Free Poster Download

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterShare on Tumblr

Are you vexed by people who claim to be Christians, yet aren’t? You’re not alone. I’ve designed a free poster for you to download aptly named “This is Not Christianity”:

This is Not-Christianity Free Poster Download

As can be seen, the design capitalises on a false-premise that some people hold; that if they wear a Crucifix around their neck and call themselves Christians; then they are (when they aren’t unless they receive Salvation from the LORD).

Don’t get me wrong—I’m not wanting to be some kind of negative campaigner who is shunning the good news of the Gospel message with judgemental concepts. However, sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. The truth can hurt, but the aim of this design is to sway people who have embraced easy-believism that Christianity is all about receiving Salvation and the life-changing works that God does in their lives thereafter.

I have included two separate translations of the verse at the base of the Poster (ESV & KJV) so that the pure message of the Gospel can be communicated without contention.

The scripture at the base of the poster reads:

Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3 ESV)

I will also be making this poster available as screen-savers for monitors and the iPhone soon.

The poster has been designed with a white border all the way around, so the actual design won’t suffer any clipping by desktop printers. Please print at 100%, so any clipping will only effect the white border areas.

I hope this design is pretty much explanatory, but if you have any questions or comments, please leave them below…

    ever considered that not everyone wears it thinking it makes them Christian?

    @Matthew → Yes, and this is even worse. To wear the cross, a symbol of my LORD Jesus, should be a statement of belief, not because “it looks good”.

    I’ve deleted the 2nd sentence of your message. Blasphemy may be the subject of my next poster design.

    Here’s some further reading Matthew: http://www.esvonline.org/search/john+3/

    Nice! You can never be the same when you truly surrender to Christ, have a personal relationship with Him and walk with Him everyday!

    Sadly, most Christians also miss John 6:53 “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. 57 Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever”
    no Eucharist, no eternal life, or Jesus is a liar

    There’s a great online resource for questions such as yours, and I as a Christian even find the answers over at GotQuestions.com really useful. There’s plenty of Q+As on there, and here is a sample from answers that may suit your questions. I encourage you to read ore on these, and the other related articles that then appear at the end of these pages over there.

    To answer your questions:

    1. Why does God allow suffering? / Why do 3 year olds get cancer?

    …The issue of sickness is always a difficult one to deal with. The key is remembering that God’s ways are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9). When we are suffering with a sickness, disease, or injury, we usually focus solely on our own suffering. In the midst of a trial of sickness, it is very difficult to focus on what good God might bring about as a result. Romans 8:28 reminds us that God can bring about good from any situation. Many people look back on times of sickness as times when they grew closer to God, learned to trust Him more, and/or learned how to truly value life. This is the perspective God has because He is sovereign and knows the end result [READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE].

    2. Why is there more than one religion in the world?

    …There is no doubt that the number of different religions in the world makes it a challenge to know which one is correct. First, let’s consider some thoughts on the overall subject and then look at how one might approach the topic in a manner that can actually get to a right conclusion about God. The challenge of different answers to a particular issue is not unique to the topic of religion. For example, you can sit 100 math students down, give them a complex problem to solve, and it is likely that many will get the answer wrong. But does this mean that a correct answer does not exist? Not at all. Those who get the answer wrong simply need to be shown their error and know the techniques necessary to arrive at the correct answer [READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE].

    3. Why should we have faith? Why can’t he prove his existence?

    …The answer to this question depends greatly on what is meant by “conclusive” proof. Can we reach out and touch God or see Him in the same way that we touch and see people? No. But there are countless ways one can know assuredly that God does exist, that He is real, and He is who He says He is. We will look briefly at three ways of proving His existence using both science and the Bible [READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE].

    Enjoying your blog, though I’d have to disagree with your poster & agree with Michael McCleary. But that is a whole other topic. Keep up the good work! God bless!

    Maybe your poster may ring true for some Protestant Evangelicals who don’t know their spiritual heritage. You should show a bit more respect and realize that for many of us, our crosses on our necks absolutely DO mean something, and it’s not just a mere piece of jewelry. In Orthodox Christianity, that cross is very important, and wearing it is not easily dismissed! It is a symbol that we are marked with the seal of Christ. A true Orthodox Christian NEVER removes that cross under any circumstances. Why? Because we cherish what that cross means, our salvation, Jesus resurrecting and freeing us from death and the grave. For centuries, thousands have died defending the faith and that symbol. There are nations right now that are trying to ban the visible wearing of a cross. So I’m actually more than a little offended that someone would say that wearing a cross doesn’t mean you are Christian when for a great many of who wear a cross, it most certainly DOES!

    No, I never said that wearing a cross means you’re not a Christian. The intent behind the poster is to warn the people who wear the cross as a means of showing that they are Saved, when they’re not.

    Here in Britain, only 2% of people go to Church, and I reckon only 50% of these people are saved. Contrast this with (as a rough estimate by myself) an assumption that at least 20% of all Britons wear a cross. So, this would mean that of of 70 million people, 14 million wear the cross.

    Out of 14 million, only 140,000 people are actually saved.

    So, my point is this. Even if this poster was shown in Britain alone, it is for the 13,860,000 people who wear it and are not Saved by Jesus.

    If this poster offends you, that’s not my concern. My mission is to spread the Gospel message in any way that I can. If you want to treat the cross as an idol, then that’s your business.

    I couldn’t agree more with this bold poster statement!

    May I add this; 1 Corinthians 3:16, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”
    Personally, I don’t need a “reminder” of what the physical cross symbolizes, when I have the very person of Christ within me.
    Some would go as far as to say, if it were a gun that killed Jesus, would we hang that item in our churches or around our necks to symbolize what Jesus accomplished for us too? Intriguing thought.

    The physical symbol of the crucifix, or ‘cross’ is certainly misused within Christendom, and certainly in the non-Christian world. Thankfully, it is Christ that is the Life Giving Spirit. And it is “by their fruits you will recognize them” (Matt 7:20) not by the crucifix hanging on their necks.
