However, Christianity is about relationship - relationship with Jesus.
Relationship with Jesus is obtained by believing in Jesus and accepting Him as Saviour and Lord.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Believing in Jesus is:
- He died on the cross to pay for our sin.
- He was resurrected to give us new life--- the God's kind of life, ZOE life, of which eternal life is an attribute.
- Jesus is Man and God. As man, taking man's place, to die on the cross, to fulfill the laws, that we man may be saved.
- Jesus as God in defeating the devil and death caused by sin and be resurrected (by the power of the Holy Spirit), and making a show of them.
