Converting to Christianty
The Letters is a advice column for questions you may have after converting to Christianity. All of your questions will be answered by me, Paul the Apostle. If you have any questions at all you are welcome to write your comment below.
I am a Gentile who has recently converted to Christianity and am wondering if gentiles are required to follow Jewish laws?
The only requirements given to Gentiles is that they abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.
I am considering converting to Christianity, however my friends say Jesus is not really the son of God. I was wondering about Jesus and what he really did?
Jesus came to earth to save us all from sin. On earth he was truly divine and truly human at the same time and he satisfied all the requirements of the Jewish laws. He died on the cross, sacrificing his sinless life to save us all and then rose back to life on the third day.
My husband and I were divorced one year ago, did Jesus say if is okay to remarry?
Jesus said that when a man and women marry that they become one flesh and what God has joined together no man shall put asunder. Jesus also said that from the beginning divorce was never intended but Moses allowed it because of their hardness of heart.
In my old religion we would sacrifice to our gods. In Christanity do you sacrifice to God?
No, Jesus sacrificed his life for our sins therefore we do not need to make sacrifices to God for our own sins.
Who can be saved by the power of God?
Anyone who believes in Jesus Christ and that he is indeed the son of God can be saved by the power of God.
I am new to Christianity and know about Jesus, but what are the centers of Christianity about ?
Jesus's message was one of love and forgiveness and putting the needs of others before your own.
Are there any Jewish holidays or special events that Christians should celebrate?
Christians are not required to celebrate Jewish holidays however many Jewish Christians choose to still celebrate traditional Jewish holidays such as Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread.
