Understanding the Basics of Christian Faith
Believers who believe in Jesus Christ are more than those who believe in Islam. It started in Israel about two thousand years ago. You need to learn that, his parents were Jews who based their faith on the law of Moses.
Christmas Is the most significant event in the world which Christians believe that it is the day that Christ was born. Bible scholars are of the view that the Romans picked this date to coincide with their festivals in December and it is not the actual time for Christs birth.
Jesus came as a human being though he was God. He has come in the world with one sole mission. 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. God desired to cleanse away the sins of mankind. His compassion led him to give his only son to die on the cross. People must first confess his sinful state. 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.
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.
Some people have weekday fellowships but most people to church on every seventh day of the week. Going to church is important to every Christian. 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. The church is believed to be the body of Christ, and thus they have faith in the same God even if there are many denominations.
Jesus appointed twelve disciples who followed him everywhere he went. Judas was a corrupt disciple of Jesus. This led him to satisfy his insatiable selfish desire for money by selling his master for a few coins. During those days, Jews were under the colonial rule of Romans who administered the most shameful and painful punishment to offenders.
Many Christians were thrown into prison and others killed for their faith. Despite these persecutions, the church grew, and they believed God even more. 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. Today, there are many Christians in China than in Europe where persecution is not as much.
