Why Believe In Jesus?

Discovering the fundamentals of Christianity!

Welcome!

Hello there! Welcome to Why Believe In Jesus?

However you came to be at this site, I hope you find it interesting and useful! I decided to create this website for two reasons: firstly as a resource for people of any background or belief who want to explore what the Christian faith is all about, but in simple and easy-to-understand terms and not just confusing religious jargon! Secondly, I want to share some of my own experiences of what it means to be a Christian and how it can change your life if you want it to. Christianity is not so much a set of rules to obey (a religion) but is primarily about getting to know God and growing closer to Jesus Christ's likeness day by day (a relationship). Over the past centuries, many millions of people around the world have found Christianity to enable them to lead joyful and fulfilling lives. This site, hopefully, uncovers some of the reasons why!

I should make it clear that parts of the site are very much my own opinion and are beliefs which are not necessarily held by all Christians. That said, the fundamentals are all that really matter. All Christians accept that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, for starters, and you can check out the other fundamental beliefs in the Apostle's Creed.

Blog!

This site also has a blog section which I update on an ad hoc basis. Here are some of my entries:
 
God in a Box
Are we in the habit of dusting off God when it suits us and then stuffing him back in the box once we're done? Is Christmas a prime example of this? Read more...
 
...And I'll be nice to you!
American rapper Eminem expressed his lack of prejudice when he said he would be nice to anyone who was nice to him but he neglected to say what our attitude should be when people aren't nice to us. Read more...
 
Life After Delivery
Twins in the womb grapple with the concept of birth and what it means for them. Is it the end or just the beginning? Why does it matter? Read more...

Notes

Generally this site will refer to Christianity as a "religion" since it is a way of living which is associated with God. However, it is argued that in many ways Christianity is not a religion in every sense, and even that Jesus was against religion. This is because religion is associated with legalism and achieving certain things to be right with God or to get to heaven. Christianity is not like this because you do not need to be able to tick boxes to get to heaven; you just need to believe that Jesus Christ has already taken the punishment you deserve, and therefore ticked all the so-called boxes for you! So in that respect Christianity is not a religion so much as a faith.

I am a great believer in the use of colour to spice up a web page and whilst some of the pictures and diagrams are my own, the others are from a variety of sources including coolclips.com , christart.com or clipart.christiansunite.com  - thank you!
