What’s in a name? Today we’re talking about news of Campus Crusade for Christ changing its name to “Cru.” It’s one of many faith-based organizations lately that have decided to remove Jesus from its title or logo:
Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) — the popular, large-scale Christian organization — has decided to make a major change. In early 2012, the multi-faceted para-church group will officially drop the name it has held for 60 years, replacing it with a three-letter word — “Cru.” While many within the group are praising the change, some outsiders wonder if the ministry, which seeks to “build spiritual movements everywhere so everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus Christ,“ is making the wrong decision by removing ”Christ” from its title.
We posed this question: Do you agree or disagree with the name change? And you weighed in — on both sides.
