Question? What makes Christianity dIfferent from all other religions?
Christianity IS NOT a religion.
RELIGION is people TRYING by their OWN efforts in whatever form that may take REGARDLESS how sincerely done to make themselves acceptable to God and earn their right to go to heaven.
Christianity is a PERSONAL TRUST ALONE in the SAVING KNOWLEDGE in the person called the Lord Jesus Christ.
(1 John 5:13) These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
(Acts 16:31) And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
The word KNOW is the Greek word EIDO meaning a PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE.
When a person TRUST Christ ALONE as the complete payment for ALL their sins, that person has God’s WRITTEN WORD that they have a PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE in knowing that they are SAVED.
Religion says to DO,DO,DO
(Matthew 7:22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Christianity says D.O.N.E
(Titus 3:5) Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
(John 1:12) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
(Ephesians 2:8,9) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (9) Not of works, lest any man should boast.
What makes Christianity DIFFERENT from ALL other religions we have a LIVING SAVIOUR, no other religion can make that claim they ALL HAVE a dead or a false god or man that they follow and worship.
(Revelation 1:18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
(Hebrews 10:10,12) By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (12) But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins. the MOMENT you believe(TRUST in Christ ALONE) you recieve eternal life.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
