What exactly is a Christian? Many people will tell you that a Christian is someone who believes in God, does good things to get into heaven, and then forces their faith onto others. Is this true? If God is good, why do bad things happen? If God is loving, why would He send good people to hell? Unfortunately these questions, and others like it, can stump current believing Christians into answering simply with “Uhm…”
Despite the vast majority of the United States claiming to be Christian, we live in a world where most Christians can hardly explain the basic fundamentals of their own faith. This has produced a judgmental group of “believers” who spout hate at anyone who believes differently than they do, has divided our churches, and has made it so that Christians live no differently than their fellow nonbelieving citizens.
Overall, this book will use Scripture to explain who Christ wants His people to be, it will help you answer the tough questions you will get from the world, and discern true Christian teachings from false rabble.
For you nonbelievers out there, I encourage you to read this as well. See what a Christian truly is for yourself, not what the media tells you we are.
Finally, I pray that this book helps everyone who reads it discover the grace, mercy, and love of Christ. I pray that this book will inspire you to pursue the Lord with all your heart. As the Scriptures say, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…” (Prov. 9:10, NIV) and, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jer. 29:13, NIV).
