Is why I am a Christian the reason you should be one? How do I know if you should be a Christian if I cannot answer myself to why am I a Christian? Can I explain it to you in a way which you understand, makes sense and does not take an hour or previous knowledge of the Bible.
Our Pastor has been challenging us and/or telling us we all should be disciples, not just the Pastor and I agree. Yet, I have been floundering over this, for some time, not just lately when the Pastor mentioned it. Why do I not feel like yelling about Jesus of the rooftops? I could not find the word until the other day, it is I don’t feel qualified. Along with not feeling qualified, I don’t feel confident enough.
I can tell you my story of how I became a Christian – but it does not tell you the right now, why I am and remain a Christian. In my posts onward, I will continue to post scripture, but I will also intertwine it with my effort to answer this question.
Here is the most straightforward answer to this question: Why am I a Christian. Because I believe in Heaven and Hell and I believe the path to heaven is through my faith and love in Jesus Christ. It is because I believe Jesus came to earth, lived and then died for our sins. And if I believe he lived and died for my sins, then it is logical I believe the rest of what is written in the Bible. Yes, there are things in the Bible which do not make sense to me, seem strange, mean, dangerous, or irrational. But, as I read through the Bible, I realize people in the Bible, such as JOB had things happen to them they did not understand and yet, they retained their faith.
I am posting this, but will be working on a deeper, maybe more concise answer as well as work on answering other questions.
