Christianity

The Followers of Jesus Christ

The Most Important Belief

Christians believe that they should follow the teachings of Jesus, when they believe that Jesus died for their sins they will be accepted to eternal life.

Extremists

Extremists justify their actions because they believe that only Christians will be saved. They believe that Jesus won't return if not everyone believes.

Belief

Christians want to follow the teachings of Jesus, because they believe that it will gain them eternal life.

Current Events

Right now the United States is having a discussion on the use of torture for prisoners of war. Jesus taught to be fair to everyone and "to do unto them as you would have them do unto you.". I believe we are not following the teachings of Jesus because we are torturing others but we do not want to be tortured ourselves.

Song

The song I chose is Rock of Ages by Augustus Montague Toplady. "Rock Of Ages"

Rock Of ages cleft for me
Let me hide myself in thee
Rock of Ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in thee

Let the water and the blood
From thy riven side which flowed
Be of sin the double cure
Cleanse me from it's guilt and power

Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to thy cross I cling
Nothing In my hand I bring
Simply to thy cross I cling

Naked, come to thee for dress
Helpless, look to thee for grace
Vile, I to the fountain fly
Wash me Savior, or I die

Rock of ages cleft for me
Let me hide myself in thee
Rock of Ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in thee
