Understanding the Basics of Christian Faith
Christianity has managed to be the most subscribed faith in the globe. 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. 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.
Though Christ was born as a man; he was fully God. Christ left heaven and came to this sin-filled earth to accomplish one purpose. It was the desire of our creator to establish an improved relationship with human beings through remission of sin. 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. People must first confess his sinful state. You must also learn that no human effort can make mankind righteous before God. Christians believe that once they accept salvation through Jesus Christ, they become sons of God.
Christian believers behold a personal bond with their maker which makes their religion different from others. Thus, believers are encouraged to persevere difficult circumstances in order to become more like Christ. Believers in Christian faith are also exhorted to love one another and to forgive each other freely.
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. 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. This led him to satisfy his insatiable selfish desire for money by selling his master for a few coins. Jews came about with false accusations which led to the crucifixion of Jesus.
Those who confessed their faith in Christ were inhumanely tortured. Persecutions did not dampen their faith in Christ but it made them reach more people to believe in Christ. 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.
