In statistics most people name themselves
christians. To know, what a Christian is, we ought to ask him
, from whom this name comes. Jesus Christ clearly had said in the bible , what a Christian is.
Joh 3,16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.
Simple only, because I belive in God. From the Bible
see I, what this means: believe:
I acknowledge, that God is the Almighty. He created
anything, as well as me. He is holy, he endures
no sin. I am a sinner. I have no chance by myself to have
a personally relation to God
, but this is, what he will. He is righteous.
For God loves me, he had found a way,
that in spite of my sins I can be justified.
For he has to punish on account of the sin. Because he is righteous
, somebody had to pay for that. Since God had defined the death penalty
for the sin, somebody must die.
In his great love he has sent his son Jesus Christ from heaven to earth, on behalf of
us men to suffer this death penalty .
I believe this absolutely firm, have my sin (sins)
confessed and confess them, and i have accepted Jesus as my savior
and Lord. As savior: I can thank him,
that he took away my debt, that I may be a child of
God. As Lord: Because I am saved, I will do God's will.
