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.
25th December has been assumed to be the date that Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph, and people celebrate with song, dance and exchanging gifts. 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. God has a desire to reconcile with man through the forgiveness of sins. Despite the act of sacrificing beasts to plead for their sin, they were unclean before God. 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. People must first confess his sinful state. 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.
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. Christians are encouraged to demonstrate selfless love towards every person on earth.
Sunday is the main day that believers attend church. Attending church service is an important aspect in Christian faith. 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. Christians gather in churches which have different doctrines through the bible is their primary reference with Christ being the center of their belief.
Among the assistants that Jesus had chosen to walk him in his ministry journey was Judas who was the treasurer in this ministry. He loved money to a great extent. 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. Christians continued becoming more in numbers even though they were mistreated. 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. Christians in China are many that all the believers found in European nations.
