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.
Most people celebrate in the world remember the birth of Jesus every year. Despite the fact that this wasnt the precise date of Christs birth people have continued to celebrate it as the birthday for Jesus.
Though Christ was born as a man; he was fully God. Jesus came with a definite goal. It was the desire of our creator to establish an improved relationship with human beings through remission of sin. Sacrificing animals was a practice that was done many times many years to atone for the sins of man. God had a plan to wipe away the sins of man completely. 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. It is important to understand that no matter what man he cannot makes himself pure as Gods standards are very high. Christians become sons of the highest God when they are forgiven sins through the blood of Christ.
Christians dont have to pass through an intermediary to fellowship with their father in heaven as Christ through the Holy Spirit enables them talk to God directly. 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.
Sunday is the main day that believers attend church. 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. 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.
In the next few days after the ascension of Jesus to heaven, Christians were now heavily persecuted. 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. Today, there are many Christians in China than in Europe where persecution is not as much.
