What Is Christianity?
Christianity is a religion that teaches that humans are sinful and that they can be saved by following Jesus Christ. Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross to atone for the sins of humanity and that through him, God has restored humankind’s relationship with him.
Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic faith based on the teachings of Jesus and the Bible. It is the world’s largest and most widespread religion, with more than 2.4 billion followers worldwide.
Among the core elements of the Christian tradition is a focus on Jesus Christ as both a historical figure and a present reality. Few Christians, however, would be content to keep this reference merely historical.
Many Christians, with rare exceptions, also focus on the idea of salvation or redemption. They picture themselves as a people in need of rescue–for whatever reason, they have been separated from the source of life (or redeemed), and they are thus in need of a means of getting back to their source.
One of the most common ways that Christianity is practiced is through healings. This is done through prayer and by using special methods, such as holy water or sacred salt.
Casting out demons is a common part of the healing ministry and it was something that Jesus taught his disciples to do. Demons are real and can be destructive, especially to Christians.
