Christianity is a religion that is used my many americans, but it is very difficult to understand. It is a religion based on Faith without a rock, with only sand to build, right? Wrong. Your Faith is the rock. Without faith one is unable to engage in christianity, or in a relationship with God. When one becomes a christian, it is his or her responsability to persue his or her beliefs. Many people think that christianity is based on beleiving in a higher being, going to church, and being a nice person. These people are ignorant. There is much more involved in a relationship with God, and Christianity. This essay will take you inside the minds eye of a christians life, love, and Faith in god.
In this segment I will answer some of the questions asked by non-belivers, athiests and users of other religions. Some of these people wonder why Christians could belive in a god that is so cruel as to punish those who do not choose his religion, they have it all wrong. What God did was create a way for people to get to heaven. No one on this earth is free of sin. Before god sacraficed his only son, there was no way anyone could have etearnal life. If anyone sinned, when they died they would go to hell. When god sacraficed his son, his son died for our sins, now when we sin all we have to do is asked to be forgiven by God. When we become christians we create our own path to heaven, and when we die we go to heaven and live happily and eternally with god. So you see God is good, without him everyone would go to hell. Other people wonder how we can be so sure our god exists. Nothing, no religion can be totally and completey proved, anything is debatable. To Christains we see, and feel god every day working in our lives. When one askes Jesus into their heart, God comes to be with them forever. He lives within you from that day until the day you go to be with him forever. There is also physical proof that parts of the bible are true. For Instance the story of Noah's ark, thats rediculous, isn't it. Well, it might seem rediculous, but sitting on Mt. Ararat, is a large boat fitting the exact description of the ark given in the bible. Also there are things that cannot be explained by sciece, things that had to be a work of God, like people that have come back from the dead, and angels that have appeared. That is how we know our God exsists. I cannot answer every question, but these few Im sure can further help you understand christianity.
Some people think that if you kill someone or if you steal something you go to hell, that is not true. Nothing can keep you from heaven if you are a christian. Of course the christain religion does not support behaviors like these, althoough if commited they are forgiven. All you have to do is ask Jesus into your heart and live a Christian life. After you have done this you will realize that God will give you far more happiness than any girl or boy, substance, alchahol, or money, and throught prayer, god will give you things you want or need. You might think this all sounds so good whats the catch? The catch is that you have to live by god's rules and praise him all the rest of your days, but it will make you happy, and you will live a long and prosperous life, and when its over you will go and be with the lord.
