Convert to Coward

In the beginning, it's easy.  We learn that Jesus died for us and that he loves sinners.  But then we have to call ourselves Christians, which is fine until we find ourselves in situations that force us to make choices.  Choices between "what Jesus would do" and what the world expects us to do.
The pressure from that choice multiplies the more we hold ourselves out to be Christians until one day or one week or month we hit a wall.  It's that pressure wall that keeps us from living out our faith.  It's the fear of what others will think of us if we make this decision or that decision.  And so we cower down and stay with the group, where the evil one uses us best.

God loves us in the crowd.  But he uses us when we have more room to move.
