Christianity

This week the message from God Questions was, Do all roads lead to heaven? This is what was reported about Christianity.

#1 = Christianity 30% of the world's population

 Followers = 2 billion
Founder = Jesus Christ Who made a claim that no other major religious figure has ever made before or since: He claimed to be God in the flesh. (And did some amazingly convincing things to substantiate that claim.)

Jesus taught that God was One essence, expressing itself in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. So that God was one, but three, which Christians called “The Tri-Unity,” or “The Trinity.” God is in community with Himself and loved that community so much that He expanded the community to include angels and humans who could experience community with him and with each other. So their View of God = Monotheism and Means to God = Atonement/Substitution
 
For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. - 1 Peter 3:18

   View of Afterlife = Heaven A place in the presence of God Himself, where we will have meaningful responsibilities, full knowledge of ourselves and God, and unspeakable joy. The Bible says that when those who have trusted in Christ get to heaven: He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning  or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. – Revelation 21:4

Be wise today and always - know and accept the truth and love of God.
