If you could ask God one question, what would you ask? There are probably more answers to this than stars in the sky. Why did you make us? Is there life after death? Why don’t you stop all the suffering? Why didn’t you program everybody to believe in you? We are all different and have different things we would like to know.
Different religions explore many of these universal questions – the big questions that millions of people have asked over thousands of years – and reach their own answers. These answers are called beliefs. Some may be very similar – for example, Judaism, Islam and Christianity share a common ancestry and therefore all believe in one good and loving God who created the world and everything in it. However, other beliefs are unique to particular religions. Although both Christianity and Islam both feature the person of Jesus Christ (or Isa), Christians believe he was much more than a prophet – he was God himself, and only Christianity claims that eternal life is found through Jesus.
In this section you can explore some of the most important beliefs in Christianity: beliefs about human nature and freewill; sin and redemption (which, in other words, means what’s wrong with the world and how it is made better); and the person and role of Jesus Christ, among many others. You can also explore the way Christians answer universal questions about the nature of God, the meaning of life, and what happens when you die.
So what are your questions? What do you believe?Bookmark
