Christianity FAQs

Hello and welcome to yet another wonderful post, hoping that you were amazed by the last one. Today we dealing with a topic that will take us to the heart of Christianity. We shall discuss the major points and hopefully they will help most of you. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about Christianity.

What is Christianity
Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Its adherents, known as Christians, believe that Jesus is the Christ, whose coming as the messiah was prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, called the Old Testament in Christianity, and chronicled in the New Testament. As we can see that Jesus is indeed the centre of this religion called Christianity.

How does it work
Obviously being a Christian works in so many ways. There are simple steps to become a Christian,  you can find a local church in your place of residence, a church that read the Bible and a Church that believes in God and in Jesus Christ.

 Once you choose a church basically leaders from that church will begin a journey with you in Christ. They will teach you about the Bible since it is there to guide us. If you are satisfied that is when you are asked to give your life to Christ. Giving your life to Christ or being born again is admitting that Jesus is Lord, Son of God and the Messiah who died on the cross for our sins. 
After doing that prayer of which you will be guided by church leaders you are now a Christian!

Cool right, It doesn't end there. The Church leaders will walk with you as you grow day by day and the idea is to listen and obey their instructions.

Benefits
Becoming a Christian is a wonderful thing and a perfect choice. There are a lot of benefits both physical and spiritual. So i will start with the physical benefits. Did you know that everything we see in physical begins in the spirit? what we see are the results of what the spirit has produced. 

So when you go to church, there are different departments there, we have the praise team which deals with music and leading the church into the time of worship,  there is the ushering team which welcomes people by the church doors, the ushering team also help when people are being prayed for. 

Their duty is to assist the congregation and visitors too. We have the hospitality team, church elders, deacons and pastors among others.Everyone has a part to play in the church. So imagine going to a church with so many department obviously you can join where your passion is. We have seen great musicians coming out from church, great politicians, great fooball players, great preachers, great men and women of God. 

You could be the next greatest preacher, but because you don't belong to a church, it is hard for people to notice you. So a church is a good place for talent discovery as well as chasing your passion and goals. At church there is a guarantee of family support.In good and in bad times there is always a shoulder to lean on. 
I have witnessed  alot of testimonies from people who are Christians.

When it comes to spiritual benefits, there are what we call spiritual gifts like the gift of healing, speaking in tounges, dreaming dreams, seeing visions, enterpreting dreams, prophecying, giving.... i mean the list is endless.

Does God loves me
God loved us before He created us, the good part about Christianity is the overwhelming evidence in the Bible and also our testimonies day in and day out.We see God's love from the book of John 3:16 it says For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. 

Again in the book of 1 John 4:16 it says We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.
God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.This one is interesting, Romans 5:8 says But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners that is pure love guys and it can only come from God.

Lastly in the book of 1 Corinthians 13:13 it says Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. This means that God loves us and His love is forever. His love never fails!

Will God forgive my sins
Have you figured out that most people are were they are and not where they are supposed to be sometimes because of what they did in the past. Yes your past can surely hold you back forever which will badly affect your destiny. When God sent His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins, this means that we were already forgiven our past, present and future sins.

 You just have to believe this and you will not be guilty of your past. It is Christ's righteousness that makes us right with God. This is grace and by God's grace we were made perfect before God by the blood of Jesus Christ. Here are some verses to help clarrify what I'm trying to say. 1 John 1:9  But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness, Galatians 2:20-21 My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. 

So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die. 

Acts 3:19 Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away. So i believe there are so many scriptures in the Bible that talks about God forgiving our sins, always remember that you are forgiven!

Can anyone speak to God
I'm one person who used to pray that i speak to God as in actually having a conversation with Him. It looked so impossible till that one day God revealed this to me that He always speaks to us but all we have to do is to listen. 

Yes anyone can speak to God through prayer i mean anyone can pray to God. But the important factor is to hear God more than speaking to Him. When you hear God He will be your friend and will guide you in everything you do. 

Once you hear God, speaking to Him becomes as easy as ABC.In the book of Hebrews 4:16 it says So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. This means that when we come to the Throne of our God we must speak to Him!

Conclusion
Christianity is by far a true religion and there is life in abundance. I believe we living in the last days and it is better to turn to Christ while we still have time. I understand there are so many religions out there but there are nothing compared to Christianity. Jesus is the way the truth and the life so find Him today and be set free in Jesus name.
