Christ Followers or Admirers?

Are we followers of Christ or are we admirers of Christ? Each one of us who has anything to do with Christ/Christianity falls under one of these two categories. Knowing the difference is important.
Here is a summary (taken from the article below) of what the difference is between the two.....

*The admirer NEVER MAKES any true sacrifices. He always plays it safe. Though in words, phrases, songs (facebook posts and so much more) he is inexhaustible about how highly he prizes Christ, he RENOUNCES NOTHING, GIVES UP NOTHING, will not RECONSTRUCT HIS LIFE, will not BE what he admires, and will not let his life express what it is he supposedly admires!*

WOW that is so sad. But we see it everywhere today. People claiming to be "followers of Christ" (Christians) yet their life still reflects the "worldians" (my term for those who follow the world) This is part of the antichrist living amongst us today!
Now want to know what a follower is? Again taken from the article below....

*The FOLLOWER ASPIRES with ALL his STRENGTH, with all his WILL to BE what he admires. And then, remarkable enough, even though he is living amongst a "Christian people" the same danger results for him as was once the case when it was dangerous to openly confess Christ. And because of the followers life, it will become evident WHO THE ADMIRERS ARE, for the admirers WILL BECOME AGITATED with him. Even that these words are presented as they are will disturb many- but then they likewise must belong to the admirers.*

Christ knows who is what. He commanded us to be FOLLOWERS. If we are admirers we risk being turned away like the rick man who followed all the commandments but was not willing "to give up" what he valued.
