    The Benefits of Christianity–Audio Lesson 

    Many reject Christianity, because they see it as too restrictive. The Bible, to them, is a big book filled with rules and regulations that have no apparent reason other than to make humans unhappy. In truth, Christianity is able to yield a depth of happiness and peace that cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. Listen >>

    Why I am a Christian 

    I’m a Christian for no less than two reasons, and these are two reasons that every Christian should be able to give:

    • I believe I am who Jesus says I am – someone who is lost without him and in need of his healing (Luke 19:10, Mark 2:17).
    • I believe Jesus is who he said he was – the bread of life, the light of the world, the door to salvation, the good shepherd, the resurrection and the life, the way, the truth and the life, and the true vine for the people of God (John 6:35, 8:12, 10:9, 10:11, 11:25, 14:6, 15:1).

    The list may sound like a simple version of theology to some, but I’m just fine with that.

    The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” Then they went out of the city and came to Him.” (John 4:28-30)

      I don’t want to sound too technical but shouldn’t your second point say- I believe Jesus is who He says He is- since your first point is in the present tense?

        I didn’t really pay attention to that. But since you mentioned it, I was looking at it from the point of view of when the scriptures were recorded for us…which is past tense, unlike myself which is still present tense 😉
