A REPLY to Steve Hall ‘War of the Words’. There are good solid grounds – not just The Bible – for believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that Christianity accordingly is the one and only true religion, revealed by God himself.
Christians therefore believe that while many Jews, Hindus, Muslims and other like yourself may indeed be good, honest people, Jesus’s way – Christianity – is the only right way. You’re spot on! We Christians do bicker and fight, because we are human like everyone else. We know however that we still have failings but believe that Jesus wants each and every one of us to try to become a better person. So, that’s our target.
You certainly have a right, Steve, to your own beliefs, as does each one of us. Christianity though is not about rights. We Christians know that we are sinners and we certainly don’t claim to be better than you or anyone. But our religion leads us to faith in God and gives us hope for a better future, in this world and the next. A letter in the newspaper can suggest the right direction, but learn more from a Christian friend, a local church or, of course, The Bible.
