What Makes Christianity Different?

Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 6 – 12 November 2016


“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

One of the topics that I teach in school is World Religion. As I come across the religions, I realized that one is different from the rest: Christianity.

What makes Christianity different from the rest? For one, it is the religion that claimed that humans are sinful and will receive death as punishment. Another reason is the fact that its founder, Jesus Christ, is the Word of God made flesh, fulfilling the prophecies years before.

But the most striking difference is its belief on the mercy of God. Despite all of the humanity’s sinfulness, God has sent His only Son to be with us and to save us from our sins. To do this, He went down to earth to live as an ordinary man, despite that fact that He is powerful. Jesus Christ did not do anything against God, but He became the sacrificial lamb in order to give us the gift of forgiveness and eternal life.

Today and in all of the days, God is offering us His gift. Will you accept the gift?

God loves us not because of who we are but rather because of what He is.
