WHAT IS CHRISTIANITY What is Christianity This is a question I had never truly thought about before taking the class The Christian Religious Tradition Being raised a Catholic I simply believed what I was told to believe and went to mass and Sunday school every week I have never in my life stopped to think about what it means to be an actual Christian Most Christian denominations teach that man is sinful and can never inherit eternal life with God as a result of the sins of Adam and Eve as well as our own personal sin It thus became necessary for God to become man in the person of Jesus Christ who as the Son of God was sinless and unblemished His purpose was to suffer and die in compensation for the sins of all who accept his sacrifice for sin Individual salvation is dependent upon the acceptance of this atonement I know what I believe but it is clear that Christianity must be defined in a broader sense Upon asking my mother what she believed Christianity to be she replied Well Clare Christianity is seeing the way Jesus Christ lived his life and trying to live our own lives following Christs example as a manifestation of God on earth in human form This is more or less what I have always believed Christianity to be that is before taking this class There are far too many interpretations and versions of the life of Christ to give such a limited definition of what constitutes Christianity as a tradition Differences between such Christianities as Catholicism Protestantism and Orthodoxy are vast and it is very often difficult to unite the three under the same heading Christianity But this fact alone is what constitutes Christianity as a denomination Therefore it becomes necessary to define Christianity as Diverse following in many different theologies and ideologies originating in the belief of the teachings of Jesus Christ Diversity within
