Understanding the Basics of Christian Faith
Believers who believe in Jesus Christ are more than those who believe in Islam. Christianity has been around for many years after Jesus came to the world and afterward ascended to heaven. He was a child that was born into a Jewish family who has religious roots in Judaism.
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.
Though Christ was born as a man; he was fully God. 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. Sacrificing animals was a practice that was done many times many years to atone for the sins of man. It was in the design of the loving creator to free man from the burden of sin. Though he has one son, God freely gave him up to die on behalf of humanity. Now, humanity must admit they are sinners from birth and they deserve a savior. It is important to understand that no matter what man he cannot makes himself pure as Gods standards are very high. Believers are certain that the forgiveness through Jesus Christ allows them to be adopted into the family of God.
Christian believers behold a personal bond with their maker which makes their religion different from others. Christians believe that when they go through hard times, God uses it to refine their character. Christians are encouraged to demonstrate selfless love towards every person on earth.
Christians attend church on Sundays. Attending church service is an important aspect in Christian faith. It is a refueling center where Christians go every week to receive spiritual nourishment and exhortations which help them to live healthily. People have come up with assemblies that have different doctrines that guide their teaching.
When Jesus started his ministry on earth, he selected twelve apostles. Though Jesus knew more about Judas flawed character he allowed him to continue being one of his disciples. Due to his love of money, he conspired with the Jewish leaders and betrayed Jesus for thirty shekels of silver. Jews came about with false accusations which led to the crucifixion of Jesus.
Those who confessed their faith in Christ were inhumanely tortured. Despite these persecutions, the church grew, and they believed God even more. Interestingly, Christians are being persecuted even today. Despite the intense suffering caused by those who want to suppress Christianity in China, believers have continued to learn more about Jesus Christ and have thereby increased tremendously. Today, there are many Christians in China than in Europe where persecution is not as much.
