Just because someone says they’re a Christian, doesn’t mean that they even understand what it’s like to be follower of Jesus Christ. Some just say it’s because that is how they were raised, or it’s because they think it’s American to be a Christian. They are “Christian in name only (CHINOs).” If you were to ask them why they are a Christian, you may find their answers lacking.
