What the Euphemism for “Christian” In Your Instagram Bio Says About You

Social media is all about curating the brand. We’ve all become little marketing departments, shaping our image in the public imagination. Whether it’s how we look, what we think, who we’re voting for or where we go, our Instagram feeds tell other people how they should feel about us. And if you’re a Christian, you also want people to know that too. Why wouldn’t you? It’s an important part of your life.

But it’s not enough to say “Christian,” is it? There’s no flavor there. No mystery. No, you’ve got to let people know you’re a Christian but you’re a certain kind of Christian. You could just say “Anglican” or “Baptist,” but even that feels a little straightforward.

No, you want to tell people that you’re a Christian with flare. Here are a few of the most popular ways to do it along with, well, what it actually says about you.
