What is Christianity?
Christianity is all that and more. Since the beginning of times there were followers of Jesus Christ they were called disciples now they are called Christians Webster dictionary define Christians as ” A person who believes in the teaching of Jesus Christ” but its one thing to say that they believe and its another to show that they believes. a lot of people believe that Christianity is a set of rules to get to heave but its not. Christianity is so much more it’s the way of life and the way of iving.
Christianity at it’s essence is the belief that Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the son of God and that He alone offers salvation. Salvation according to the bible is only achieved through believing in Jesus’ teachings and His ways of life; in other words faith is what saves people and gets them into the paradise. “l am the revelation and the life, he who believes in me will live even if he dies, and he who believes in me will never die” Revelation 22, explains that not only does Christianity offer salvation but it also promises new life and immortality in a way.
Some view Christianity as things you have to do in order to reach God. “Jesus answered, ‘l am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'” John14:6; in other words Jesus states that only through faith in Him can one be saved. That is the whole point of the bible. The thought of this life being the only one (no afterlife) is depressing and no one would look forward to that. Christianity offers an afterlife in a paradise beyond anyone’s imagination as long as one lived their life as a Christ follower of ourse.
Revelation 21 “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. ” He who was seated on the throne said, “l am making everything new! ” Imagine a place where there is no pain, no tears, no death, no conflict, and no suffering. Imagine a place where everything is perfect all the time; stop imagining because it’s real and Jesus promises it to his followers and this is the essence of Christianity. By cfrancois9
