To be a Christian means first of all, to be delivered from sin, and to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. I don't mean to sound or come across offensive to any other respecting religion, but when one considers Christianity it is set apart from all other religions and God is set apart from all deities. Christianity is a love story about a God who created mankind, his most prized and precious possession, and knew that mankind would eventually fall into moral decrepitude and destruction. This God knowing the eternal ramifications of sin and the possibility of man's volition to chose sin over Him, had a solution already planned in the person of his Son, Jesus Christ.
This man Jesus, came through 42 generations to redeem a humanity that once was connected in fellowship with God through sanctification and holiness. He came to earth not only to show how man can be in fellowship with God but secured the way to that fellowship by taking on, vicariously, the sins of mankind and allowed God to condemn sin through his death. As the Scripture states " To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them...for he hath made him to sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."-2 Cor 5:19&21
Through Jesus the way to salvation was made and established. He died and rose on the 3rd day according to the prophesies of God. Surely this is distinct from any other religion! The true and living God loved us enough to send his Son to die in our stead so that he can have fellowship with us. This is why Jesus is the only way. He forever lives to make intercession and mediation for mankind to God so as to redeem them from a life of sin and disobedience to God's moral law and commandment, and not to just live a life of strict asceticism either, but to live a life of humble submission to God through love and faith. Why Christianity? because Christianity is the only religion I know that will take a crack head and transform him into a new creation. Christianity is the only religion I know that can take a homosexual and fix his sexual orientation and confused identity. Why Christianity? because only through Christ can a man or woman be set fully free from their sins; not having to live in shame and guilt. Only through Christ can a person be fully free from promiscuity, drugs, alcohol, lying, gambling, robbing, killing, raping, injustice, immorality, unethical, miserable, lonely, depressed, oppressed and demon possessed lifestyle! I love Jesus, and he's the only one that can meet society's needs.
Turn to Jesus! Try him and see! He still saves, he still delivers and he still sets free! Without him you can do nothing, but with him you can have life and that more abundantly! Jesus is the answer for this world today, above him there is no other, Jesus is the way! Why Christianity?...Why not Christianity???
