"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important" (C.S. Lewis). Christianity is a religion based on the life and teaching, in the New Testament, of Jesus. It is a type of religion that only believes in one God. People who follow this religion are called Christians. Most Christians believe that God is one eternal being who exists as three distinct, eternal, and indivisible persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ the eternal Word), and the Holy Spirit. Most Christians says that the work of the "Spirit of God", the Holy Spirit, is truly important.
They believed that God loved the Earth, so God sent his son, Jesus, to lead them in the right direction. Jesus lived in a town called Nazareth in the 1st century. Christians believed that Jesus was the Messiah of God, who can bring peace and harmony around the world. Christians also believe that as a Messiah, Jesus was chosen as a ruler and savior of both the Jewish people, and hold that Jesus' coming was the fulfilment of the prophecy of the Old Testament and to be chosen to become one of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Most Christians believe that salvation from "sin and death" is available through faith in Jesus as a saviour from all this terror because of his atoning sacrifice on the cross which paid for these sins. The reception of salvation is related to adjusting the world and it is usually understood as the activity of unmerited divine grace. The operation and effects of grace are understood differently by these different traditions. Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy teaches the necessity of the free will to cooperate among themselves with grace. These reformed theologies goes its furthest on dependence on grace by teaching the total existence
of mankind and the irresistibility of God's graces.
Christianity is based on the New Testament. In the New Testament, there are twenty-seven separate works: they consist of the four narratives of Jesus Christ's ministry, called "Gospels"; a narrative of the Apostles' ministries, which is also a sequel to the third Gospel; twenty-one early letters, commonly called "epistles" in Biblical context, which were written by various authors and consisted mostly of Christian counsel and instruction; and an Apocalyptic prophecy, which is technically the twenty-second epistle. The New Testament was probably completely written up in Koine Greek, the language of the earliest manuscripts. Some scholars believe that parts of the Greek New Testament are actually a translation of an Aramaic original. Of these separate works, a small number accept the Syriac Peshitta as representative of the original.
The New Testament, sometimes called the Greek Testament or Greek Scriptures, and sometimes also New Covenant which is the literary translation of the Greek language, is the name given to the final portion of the Christian Bible. It was written by various authors after 45 AD and...
