W. David Mills: Christian people only

Appreciation is given to Norman Wirzba for his Feb. 27 column “Let’s declare end to ‘Christian America’.”

It is worth noting that the Bible uses the word Christian three times (Acts 11:26, Acts 26:29, 1 Peter 4:16). Each time the term is used in reference to persons and people, not nations, schools, political parties, etc.

A nonbiblical maxim that has meaning for me is, “Speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent.”
