Christianity has managed to be the most subscribed faith in the globe. Christianity has been around for many years after Jesus came to the world and afterward ascended to heaven. He was a child that was born into a Jewish family who has religious roots in Judaism.
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. Though Christmas is celebrated as the day that Jesus was born, it may not be the exact day.
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 desired to cleanse away the sins of mankind. His compassion led him to give his only son to die on the cross. Now, humanity must admit they are sinners from birth and they deserve a savior. 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.
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. Love is a paramount ingredient in Christian belief.
Some people have weekday fellowships but most people to church on every seventh day of the week. 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. Christians gather in churches which have different doctrines through the bible is their primary reference with Christ being the center of their belief.
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. Though Jesus was innocent these malicious Jews insisted that he be crucified on a cross and a notorious robber be released from prison in exchange even though he had committed no crime.
Those who confessed their faith in Christ were inhumanely tortured. Despite these persecutions, the church grew, and they believed God even more. Interestingly, Christians are being persecuted even today. It is sad to learn that China has had one of the worst treatment for Christians though more people are becoming Christians. Christians in China are many that all the believers found in European nations.
