Christianity is the leading religion in the world. It started in Israel about two thousand years 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. Though Christmas is celebrated as the day that Jesus was born, it may not be the exact day.
Jesus came as a human being though he was God. Jesus came with a definite goal. God has a desire to reconcile with man through the forgiveness of sins. Earlier man had to shed the blood of goat and sheep to obtain forgiveness. God had a plan to wipe away the sins of man completely. Though he has one son, God freely gave him up to die on behalf of humanity. People must first confess his sinful state. Thus, one must rely on Jesus to cleanse his sins and present him before God as people dont have the ability to cleanse their sins through their actions. 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. 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.
Christians attend church on Sundays. Attending church service is an important aspect in Christian faith. It has also been noted that frequent churchgoers have other physical and mental benefits. The church is believed to be the body of Christ, and thus they have faith in the same God even if there are many denominations.
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. 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. 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.
