Christianity Is Not a Religion but a Relationship

Religion is generally a set of believes and rules whereby one can follow and attain holiness and be qualified to go to heaven after one death.

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:
  1. He died on the cross to pay for our sin.
  2. He was resurrected to give us new life--- the God's kind of life, ZOE life, of which eternal life is an attribute.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
