Big difference between Christianity and other religions

Religion is how man approaches God in worship, activity, and tradition. In Christianity man doesn’t approach God or ever search for God. In Christianity God is found within the heart, soul, and conscience and therefore cleansed from sin by Christ.

Religion doesn’t cleanse man from sin but requires human activity. Christianity cleanses man from sin out of faith, belief, and trust in the activity of Christ. Cleansing is instantaneous! Big difference between human religious activity and the redemptive activity of Christ within the human soul! Religion is the operation of man. Christianity is the operation of the Spirit of God.

Religion is ever seeking. Christianity is a new found heart and life. Religion is an attempt to find. Christianity is the actual experience of a morally changed heart and life. Big difference between religion and Christianity!

There are perhaps 4000 religions (or more) in the world. Only (1) Christianity. The Gospel about a Savior that bled and died for man’s personal sins is spreading around the globe. Christianity is not to be missed,  overlooked, or mistaken to be religion. Christianity can be received in your home, on the street, in a jail cell, in a business office, in school, or even remote parts of the world where a Savior is made known to cleanse an evil heart from sin. The person of Christ can clear the conscience from guilt caused from sin.

The Grace of God “flows”from Christianity. Be a partaker of Christ and experience the inward moral change that no religion in the world can offer.  Yes, my brothers and sisters Christianity and religion differ like night and day. Find Christ while there is time. Experience love and forgiveness that religion cannot provide. Touch Christ as He touches you. Let the world know, Jesus lives…glory He lives. The God of your Salvation is alive…and within. Blessed be the name of Christ! Blessed be the name of Christ! Blessed be the name of Christianity that is different from all religions. Reason? Jesus lives.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    Acts 11:26…And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called “Christians first” in Antioch.

    1 Peter 4:16-17…Yet if any man suffer as a “Christian”, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the “end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?”

    Christians obey God. A Christian is a convert from unholiness of heart to holiness of heart by the resurrection power of Christ Jesus. The Grace of God that brings Salvation makes Christians out of sinners by the power of the Gospel message. The Gospel is the power of Salvation that “only” Christians experience (no other religion in the world) through faith and belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ for personal forgiveness and holy living.

    Christianity is not religion. Christianity is the result of a clean heart made clean by an exalted Christ. No religion in the world can clean the heart of man from sin. Only Christianity can cleanse the heart from sin. When the heart is cleansed from sin a moral conversion is made and thus a believer becomes a child of God or Christian. A Christian and child of God are one in the same.

    Christianity is not based on Church membership, any type of Religion, Baptism, Tithing, or denomination setting. Christianity is strictly based on being made into a child of God by the new birth found in the Spirit of God. A Christian is born of the Spirit and delivered from inherited rebellion and a corrupt heart. Only Christ can deliver fallen man from moral corruption. No religious practice on planet earth is good enough to perform such operation. No religion on Earth can profess such great blessing!

    Christianity came into existence when Christ purchased the Church with His own blood. Thank God for Christ our Savior and Redeemer in whom we have redemption even the forgiveness of sin. Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14, Acts 13:38

    My Blogs do not offer personal opinion or a secular position. My position on Christianity comes only from a Biblical perspective…mostly centered on the death, burial, resurrection, and exaltation of Jesus Christ.

    Rick, as you may know I am one of your regular readers. I particularly like the writing you have done on sanctification and your systematic theology stuff. I agree with your examination of “religion” and its pitfalls. I do have concerns about our modern use of the word “Christian”. You may know it’s origin was a derogatory term to describe the people of “the Way” used by those outside the circle looking in. The concerns I have about its use today are two-fold. 1) No one can describe what a Christian is. There are “Christians” on both sides of every social and cultural issue and discussion. You can make calling yourself a “Christian” mean anything you want it to mean. 2) The word has become a cliche many people use who do not want to be labeled Jewish or Muslim or Hindu or non-religious or whatever. I refer to myself as an authentic follower of Christ or a disciple today and not a Christian. I wince now when I hear someone claim to be a Christian, or hear pastors use the term. I use the terminology, “folks who call themselves ‘Christians’ ” when I blog. I know “Christian” has gained wide acceptance across the culture today, but it still falls abysmally short, in my opinion, of describing how Jesus described the kind of followers he wanted in Luke 9:23. I share my thoughts with you in hopes you might be able to offer a helpful, possibly non-religious, non-theological perspective for me. Listening to a video series by Andy Stanley called “Christian” helped me validate my concerns. After listening and studying God’s Word I wrote a 4-part series based on Stanley’s video series called Baskin Robbins Christianity. I have included a link to part 2 of the series below.

    Thank you for your blog and the knowledge and wisdom I have gained from God by reading your stuff.
