Anne Rice writes,
My faith in Christ is central to my life. My conversion from a pessimistic atheist lost in a world I didn’t understand, to an optimistic believer in a universe created and sustained by a loving God is crucial to me…But following Christ does not mean following His followers. Christ is infinitely more important than Christianity and always will be, no matter what Christianity is, has been or might become.
Is it really possible to follow Jesus on your own? What might it look like to follow Jesus apart from other followers? Have you tried to go it alone? If so, how has that been? If not, what keeps you trying to follow Jesus with others?
