(Keep It Spiritually Simple)
1 Corinthians 1:27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish (simple) in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. (NLT)
Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus prayed this prayer: “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike. (NLT)
The Father-God has given humanity for all time, the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, who had to manifest in the flesh to satisfy the broken covenant between God and man. That covenant was fulfilled and as soon as the Lord Jesus Christ presented His Blood as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind to the Father-God and then was seated at the Father’s Right Hand. Mankind was redeemed and God through His Son left God the Holy Spirit here on this earth to be His representative and comforter to all who will accept God as their true father and Jesus as their savior.
Christianity is the only way of life that intentionally and honestly presents love, God’s Love (Agape’) as the only true way to live a victorious life here on this sin driven planet.
Christianity is in fact not a religion, but a “way of life.”
All other faiths are religion. Religion is defined in dictionary.com as:
1.) a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
2.) a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects: the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion. (dictionary.com wrongly uses Christianity as an example.)
3.) the practice of religious beliefs; ritual observance of faith.
4.) something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience: to make a religion of fighting prejudice.
The definition unfortunately is incorrect in describing Christianity as a religion. True Christianity, when lived is not ritualistic duties or actions. It is in fact a life that is changed to live a life totally dependent upon a relationship with man’s creator. A life that is spiritually in constant communication with the creator, 24-7.
True Christianity is not a collection of ritualistic actions or thoughts on the part of the believer. It is simply a very personal relationship with his creator, the Father-God. A constant and instant two-way communication.
God calls for global unification. Ultimately a universal civilization. A oneness with all of humanity and with Him. The use of all of earth’s assets. Embracing the elimination of all prejudices. Full equality between sexes as He has said, “There is no male nor female in Christ Jesus.” Elimination of all poverty as we know it. Harmony between science and a relationship with Him. He is the inventor of all science and encourages His children to make use of all assets He gives them. God wants a complete balance between nature (His creations) and technology (His ideas). He even foretells of a time of oneness with all humanity with collective security for all His children.
