Understanding the Basics of Christian Faith
Believers who believe in Jesus Christ are more than those who believe in Islam. It began when a man called Jesus came into the world about two millenniums ago. Christ was from a Jew born into the family of Mary and Joseph who was Judaism adherents.
Christmas Is the most significant event in the world which Christians believe that it is the day that Christ was born. Though Christmas is celebrated as the day that Jesus was born, it may not be the exact day.
Christ came into the world as God incarnate. Jesus came with a definite goal. Man had soiled his relationship with God when he sinned willingly in Eden, but God was seeking a way of blotting out the sins of humanity. Earlier man had to shed the blood of goat and sheep to obtain forgiveness. It was in the design of the loving creator to free man from the burden of sin. When Jesus was crucified, Jesus paid the price for the freedom of man from sin which meant that man had power over sin through the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. One must acknowledge that he is a sinner. Thus, one must rely on Jesus to cleanse his sins and present him before God as people dont have the ability to cleanse their sins through their actions. Christians become sons of the highest God when they are forgiven sins through the blood of Christ.
Unlike Judaism where one has to go through priests to talk to God, Christianity suggests that you can have a personal relationship with God. Hardships are seen as an essential component in a believer as it assists them to improve their values. Love is a paramount ingredient in Christian belief.
Christians attend church on Sundays. Christians must purpose never to miss church services on Sundays. Through encouragement by the preachers, Christians are encouraged to face difficult situations with courage, and therefore those that attend church regularly have an improved blood pressure. People have come up with assemblies that have different doctrines that guide their teaching.
Jesus appointed twelve disciples who followed him everywhere he went. He loved money to a great extent. Due to his love of money, he conspired with the Jewish leaders and betrayed Jesus for thirty shekels of silver. Though Jesus was innocent these malicious Jews insisted that he be crucified on a cross and a notorious robber be released from prison in exchange even though he had committed no crime.
Those who confessed their faith in Christ were inhumanely tortured. Christians continued becoming more in numbers even though they were mistreated. Just like early days of Christianity believers are even now going through persecution in several parts of the globe on account of their faith. It is sad to learn that China has had one of the worst treatment for Christians though more people are becoming Christians. Its growth has continued to surpass many religions by a huge margin in that nation.
