Christianity is not a religion.
Christianity is a new humanity.
The Christian is new in every way.
In the NT the word “new” can mean “new” by reason of age, or youthfulness. This can be a baby, a youth or a teenager.
The more popular usage for new is something novel, unique, or never seen.

Mind you, Jimi, tripped out much on drugs, which led to his death at thirty-three. Part of his “out of his boxness” was the drugs. But there is no doubt that Hendrix was a genius out of the box guitarist. He was before his time, and today, if alive, he would be, still before his time.
Hendrix could have been a great Christian.
