Out of all the religions in the world, why is Christianity the right one?


Firstly Yes, I am a christian and a very passionate one at that. I don't want to cause any stir with this question but I only seek new responses that I myself may not already know.. You see I was asked this question Last week on my campus and was then involved in a long tiring discussion leading into the night. And if you're wondering, I defended god pretty good! But after all that, it lead me to wonder what other persons Christians or non-Christians thought about this topic. Maybe I or someone else could learn some new knowledge about the truth. I hope this question isn't out of place.

    That's a really good answer Dawn...I Like how you are able to identify that you are a christian but at the same time abide in safe net . Decent :). I like that as Christians we don't shy away from the tackling questions but can defend our faith. Thks

    Thank you for you're comment dashingscorpio. Glad you could stop by.A few questions your way. Why is there a BC globally and not something else. Why when people swear or die they're quick to call on Jesus. Stand for something or fall for everything.

    Hi it's nice to see you Yoleen...You know i weep because of the fact that people are being deterred from Christianity because of the negative groups and individuals professing god (past and present). I beg you to try him for yourself PLEASE :).

    I highly favor your response manatita44; very enlightening and true. You see ever since my younger days in high school I've always been battling between the softer loving and the intellectually rigid ministerial approach.

    Thanks for your warm words.

    Emporers of Commerce, Religion and Politics continue to derail our World today. Selfishness, greed and desire for control continue as singularly human traits.

    God's Chosen? Most definitely not!

    And can I ask you one more thing my friend...What would it take for you to believe in god....Describe to me what grand event must take place before you can play the character of one falling to her knees before Christ ?? What's the evidence you want?

    Thanks for your comment Nyc.....and yes we must learn to try and have respect for everyone.....However even though I'm not handing out any objections, why do you believe that there is no right religion? Or were you just playing it safe?

    "You've got me all wrong" quote from 'God's Message to the World' by Neale D Walsch. Whilst I cannot uphold the premise that Christianity is the best religion, I think your last two lines show that your view of the God may not be right either.

    I was a Christian, and got a degree in theology with every intention of becoming a missionary. I have read the Bible in many languages. I could no longer believe it was true. The answer you described can be found in followers of every religion.

    Hey Chelsea it's nice to have you on the matter :) I like the new perspective you're bringing to the table.However what you're saying is all based off theories, and because we can't answer them doesn't mean religion is excluded. theyre only questions

    Interesting Mitchell. I applaud you for your facts. However you trying to demystify from the lexicon "religion" is kind of a fallacious argument. In fact it's Non sequitur. Even when the word didn't exist,the core ideals of religion did from creation

    It beggars the question, what do you mean by pleasing God/Christ? If that pleasure is all about your perceptions of what is "right" or "wrong" according to your interpretation of scriptures, then your perceptions may very well be "wrong."

    He speaks from Nigeria... a country with a very sad reputation for distorting the message of Spirit which christians claim was taught to them by an enlightened man called Jesus. Ugly "christianity," in my view.

    I see that sort of teaching as the reason many people stop even trying to do the right thing. They lie, they steal, they exploit in greediness and selfishness... yet call themselves "saved." BS ! Just drop the religion and be real.

    Cool...... Well as a human being I can tell you to keep searching until you find where you belong and is comfortable.But as a Christian I MUST share with how great our god is and that accepting him will put all your doubts to rest; replaced by joy:)

    What a prodigiously interesting response my friend. I like the build you develop before arriving to a conclusion. As a christian though I want to tell you that Christ is real. The evidence is to have faith in him wholeheartedly then comes proof.

    Thanks Mara :)..... And that's an interesting view too. It's a unique answer, and I can understand it. It's like I've been telling people I don't serve Christianity or religion but god, because a lot of it as become more corrupted over time.

    Wow I never saw that one coming :) Interesting spin to a question. So you're saying I should ask if Christ is real as opposed to Buddha, Zeus, Muhammad and etc... But you know that would group a couple of religions (judaism, islam, Bahá’í and etc)
