Why I Am a Christian

Why I Am a Christian: Knowing God.

Download free, next three days: Where Do You Want to Go, Eternally? Healing One Heart at a Time, With John Wesley's Forms of Prayer (Modern English)! The book topics include: The Truth about Eternity, I've Broken the Commandments!, Taste and See, Who Was Jesus, Anyway? Good Man, Crazy Man, Son of God?, The Real Jesus Claimed to be God and Performed Miracles, Jesus Fulfilled Prophesy and Rose from the Dead, Jesus Is God, Bonus Resources For Further Study, and John Wesley's A Collection of Forms of Prayer for Every Day in the Week.

The Jews clearly understood that Jesus was claiming to be God; that is the only reason that they picked up stones to stone Him, and ultimately, crucified Him.

Furthermore, Jesus described himself as omnipresent - clearly a divine traitâ in Matt. 18:20 (For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst.)

He also claimed the following:

Existence for eternity

Power to forgive sins

Resurrection from the dead

And authority to offer eternal life.

Jesus died for me, and performed miracles. What else can we know about the real Jesus?

I am a Christian because Jesus gave me His free gift of salvation. He made me one of His children.

His children are ONLY those who have accepted Him as their savior, repented of their sins, asked for His forgiveness.

While He created everyone, only those who accept Him as their savior are those He calls His children.

Matthew 7:13-14 NIV

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Saved Christians, His children, will enter the narrow gate for life eternal with Him in heaven. The rest will enter the wide gate and spend an eternity of suffering in hell.

You choose.

I agree; it is a choice. God is perfect; I am not. How can I have a relationship, and know a perfect God? If I had only one word to describe salvation, I would say, “Reconciliation.”
