What Is Christianity?
Christianity is the largest religion in the world and has a wide variety of practices. Some are simple and can be done alone at home or others are more complex and require a lot of time and effort.
Christians believe in one God, His son Jesus Christ, and use the Bible as a holy book. They also believe that Jesus died for their sins and was raised from the dead.
Deliverance, Casting Out Demons, Healing the Sick
The early Christians inherited a relatively intimate view of a God who created the universe and carried on discourse with humans. But the Greek part of their tradition added a concept of an ethereal first being who emanated the logos, a word used to organize matter in the universe, and who would become manifest in the earthly Jesus.
Christian clergy were to remain celibate, a practice that required them not to have children or engage in intercourse with men, and to live as living martyrs who sacrificed their normal lives for the cause of Christ.
Christians pray daily for guidance, encouragement, admonishment, restoration, and spiritual help from the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (John 14:13-14; 15:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). They also pray for others, especially those in trouble or need.
Christians trust that God will heal them physically if they ask. He does this for three reasons: to lead them to repentance, to remove hindrances that prevent them from doing God’s will, and to demonstrate the power of his kingdom in their lives.
