Do you see Christianity as a religion, or a relationship?
I recently read a hub about the decline of Christianity, the religion. But is it only a religion, or is it more?
definitely a relationship. Your question strikes the core of everything i believe in Christianity. Religion is 'good' when defined according to scripture...."visiting the motherless and the widows" but what is defined as religion today is false. A fact of our human history that people seem to ignore is that every religion will wane, fade, grow, die i.e. they will have their moment in the sun. And those that practice the 'religion of Christianity' as against the 'relationship of Christianity' walk in the same throes of its fading failure. I can spend hours talking about this but let this suffice for now; beautiful question.
I see it as more than a religion. I see it as the way I formed a relationship with God and Christ. I also see it as the way to know there are people out there with the same beliefs and philosophies as me. It is comforting to know that I can go to any church of the same denomination no matter where I am and find people who are my family. Christianity CAN be more than what most people allow it to be. Great question!
Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus. Without this personal relationship, Christianity is just a religion in the same sense as any other.
Only in Christianity can you - indeed must you - have a personal relationship with God the Father through His Son Jesus.
All other religions teach that they will show you the way to god, only Jesus says I am the Way, The Truth and The Life.
Atheists and Agnostics may not consider their beliefs a religion, but they are indeed a faith.
I think part of the problem with modern-day "Christianity" is that people treat it as if it were a religion, whereas Christ meant it to be a life-style.
