Christianity Explained, Introduction
According to Wikipedia, a ‘Christian’ is someone who is ‘based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ’. Christianity is, therefore, a unique religion in that it believes that everything hinges upon what Jesus Christ has done for us, not about what we have to do for God, hence the ‘Christ-ian’ name.
Here are the top 10 basic principles and steps of Christianity, all in a natural order from first one understanding the basic principles about God, to how we then live after becoming a Christian. The first five go through the basics until you become a Christian, the later five what you do after you become a Christian.
Breaking this down even further, points one to three are more principles and beliefs that you take on board, followed by points four to six all about how you first respond to these and become a Christian, and then points seven to ten finishing by describing what your new Christian life looks like.
Each point within these sections has this layout:
1. A question - asking a genuine enquiry.
2. A Bible quote - to read in order to discover the answer, as it is essential to see for yourself where this comes from God's inspired Word.
3. The answer - a short as possible, only to be read as confirmation of what you have already discovered with previous Bible verses.
This also works with two people where someone who is already a Christian can show another person these beliefs by first asking the question. The other person can then read the bible verse aloud, and either one then read and speak the written answer after first discussing the answer.
Here then are the ten parts:
There is also a post here summarising what Christian believes through the analogy of a set of traffic lights, with reference back to the ten parts of the Christianity Explained study.
