I was challenged by brother Thabani Mnyama Jr. to answer the question “Why do you think Christianity is the right religion?”
This is among those questions you can write a zillion books about and still feel like a whole lot is left out, unless Christ hasn’t touch you.
I’ll go about it in two different approaches. One, with comparison to other religions. Second, my own experience after coming to Christ who is the center/heart of Christianity.
First, almost all religions recognize some form of divinity, i.e. praising a supreme being or praising themselves. Generally, people of different religions have attributes they assign to their gods, have some dos and don’ts that guide their lives as a way of setting a line between what is good and evil which may or may not dictate their lifestyles, they define LOVE in a certain way, and have some sort of concept concerning what happens “afterlife”.
That said, judging all the above, namely the attributes of their gods, their perception of morality, their definition and application of LOVE and afterlife concepts proves Christianity to be the only genuine, right and true religion.
The attributes and qualities of the gods of many religions are centered on the adherents’ needs rather than on the gods themselves which conveys enough evidence that they create, shape, mold, and ordain them as their “gods” to suit their needs and their way of life. The attributes of the God of the Bible are unique, unchanged, unmanipulatable and independent. People of other religions believe in “subjective” morality and I am pretty sure their application of LOVE is some form of hate when compared to Mat 22:37-40.
Second, Christianity is best described as a relationship with our Maker through His Son Jesus Christ. I personally experienced changes I would not otherwise have experienced without Christ entering my life, through His love, mercy and grace. Whereas many religions focus on doing and living life a certain way by respecting a set of rules, Christians are changed from the inside out to lead godly lives and to honor their Maker.
(I tried so hard not to use scriptures since using them would mean all religions regard the Bible as the sole written authority for religion and divinity.)
