Christianity -The Religion or Truth

I have come across numerous questions and answers regarding Christianity. The more I heard or read about the questions, the more I became disturbed by it. It is amazing that after so many years of existence, the truth has become distorted and what was the truth became a belief; a religion.

Recently, I've come across a question that separates the eastern and western into versions. After so many effort of trying to spread the truth of the gospel. It is still not understood. the truth are further twisted or are lost in so many interpretations and personal views.

If anyone choose to receive Christ and believe in Christianity for the sake of religion, then it is not the teaching of Jesus at all. Religion is the law. Jesus did not come to demolish the law, He came to save mankind. The law of Moses and 'The ten commandments' is still in effect.

God was grieved by the Garden of Eden's incident with his first human creation. Human was heading to eternal death. Then he send His only begotten son, the word in the flesh to become the perfect sacrifice to redeem all mankind from sin. Because the punishment of sin is death. God so loved the world that He did not even spare His son.

Jesus did not come into the world to condemn the sinners nor start a new religion but He did so in the flesh as an act of obedient to the Father. Jesus Christ came to bridge the gap between creator and creation by being the worthy lamb of God. To clarify the true law of His Heavenly Father, God. From Moses to the time of Jesus, people have twisted the law to suit their own agenda.

Honestly I was born into a Christian family and I was also a youth pastor's kid so our family lived and breathed the word. The only thing I have a problem with Christianity is that the stories we read all our lives seems to be mystifying and tends to be magical yet my family always stressed that witches and the like are horrible and are all going to hell. Yet my family was completely fine with us reading and watching The Lord of the Rings and the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. But they were completely against Harry Potter. We weren't allowed to do anything that was secular. We were whooped with the belt all our lives. I understand that the Christian authors relate bible stories, but regardless how can you be so hypocritical and only like some wizards and magic and then say anyone who practices magic is going to hell. I can't stand hypocrits, but I think we're all a little guilty of it but just plainly being like do as I say not as I do. It's good to accept Jesus but be real and stop telling people what to do. I find it awful that many religions state if you don't believe in them you're automatically going to hell. But honestly it really depends on where you were born and what religion your family is. You're not going to have a family that's Christian who are going to heaven and then you decide you're going to be some random religion and not go to the same place after death without your family. That just seems scary. Right?

Thank you Novalee and Pateluday, for visiting and dropping your comments. I truly believe that a person's beliefs are reflected in their daily lives. The joy of living in itself is a worship, giving glory to God who created us and the world we live in. It is not much difference in the time of our Lord, hypocrisy, self righteousness and judgemental individuals still exist.
