What are the challenges of being a Christian?
The challenges facing the church are institutional, ethical, doctrinal, political, and cultural. They cut across different faith traditions, denominations, ethnic groups, and sectors of the population.
How were people affected by Christianity?
Christianity played a role in ending practices such as human sacrifice, infanticide and polygamy. Christianity in general affected the status of women by condemning marital infidelity, divorce, incest, polygamy, birth control, infanticide (female infants were more likely to be killed), and abortion.
What is it called when you become a Christian?
Conversion to Christianity is the religious conversion of a previously non-Christian person to Christianity. The most commonly accepted ritual of conversion in Christianity is through baptism, but this is not universally accepted among Christian denominations.
What’s it like being a Christian?
As a Christian, someone who has put faith in trust in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ through His death on the cross and subsequent resurrection, our behavior mirrors, reflects and resembles Christ. Being gracious and merciful to others is behaving like Christ. Striving for justice resembles Jesus.
What does the Bible say about rejecting God?
Those who reject or neglect Christ will be in Hell. People go to Hell because they do not repent; rejecting God’s perfect plan of salvation. “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).
Why is faith important in Christianity?
Our Christian faith leads us to believe every person is created in God’s image and deserves life in all its fullness. In our work around the world, we see children being kept from reaching their full potential. We are called to be witnesses and serve as a reflection of God’s unconditional love.
