Christianity has managed to be the most subscribed faith in the globe. 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.
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. Christ left heaven and came to this sin-filled earth to accomplish one purpose. It was the desire of our creator to establish an improved relationship with human beings through remission of sin. Despite the act of sacrificing beasts to plead for their sin, they were unclean before God. God had a plan to wipe away the sins of man completely. His compassion led him to give his only son to die on the cross. One must acknowledge that he is a sinner. 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.
Christians dont have to pass through an intermediary to fellowship with their father in heaven as Christ through the Holy Spirit enables them talk to God directly. Thus, believers are encouraged to persevere difficult circumstances in order to become more like Christ. Believers in Christian faith are also exhorted to love one another and to forgive each other freely.
Sunday is the main day that believers attend church. Attending church service is an important aspect in Christian faith. 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. People have come up with assemblies that have different doctrines that guide their teaching.
Among the assistants that Jesus had chosen to walk him in his ministry journey was Judas who was the treasurer in this ministry. Though Jesus knew more about Judas flawed character he allowed him to continue being one of his disciples. It is noteworthy to say that it is the desire to be wealthy made Judas betray Jesus. During those days, Jews were under the colonial rule of Romans who administered the most shameful and painful punishment to offenders.
In the next few days after the ascension of Jesus to heaven, Christians were now heavily persecuted. Persecutions did not dampen their faith in Christ but it made them reach more people to believe in Christ. 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. Today, there are many Christians in China than in Europe where persecution is not as much.
