Are You A Christian?
What would you say if asked, “Are you a Christian?” Would you be offended if the next question was, “Are you sure?” That second question needs to be asked because there is so much misinformation about Christianity in the world. Regarding how one becomes a Christian, many people believe that they’ve taken the necessary steps when, in fact, they have not. So although we might wish it were otherwise, evangelism often consists (at least in the United States) in converting people to Christ who mistakenly believe that they’re already Christians!
The “question of God” is surely the most important one in life. No other question comes close, despite the fact that many people rarely think about it. If we’re honest, each of us has to admit that we’ve sometimes done things that we knew to be against our Creator’s will. As our Creator, God has the right to be our King, our Sovereign Ruler. In rebellion against our rightful King, therefore, we stand guilty of treason in the worst sense. Our sins have alienated us from the God whom we desire to love.
To say that this is a problem is a considerable understatement. And the question that begs for an answer is simply this: “What can be done about this problem? That’s what we want to know . . . and that’s the subject of this page.
Christianity claims to offer the only path back to God that is possible for us. Jesus of Nazareth claimed to be the Son of God, nothing less than God Himself in human form. He said He came into the world “to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10), and He went so far as to say, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
That is a bold claim, to be sure. The question of its truthfulness is a serious question. But if it turns out to be a credible claim, then we will need to take it seriously rather than dodge it, water it down, or trifle with it. On this page, we wrestle honestly with the claims of Jesus. Are they true? And if they’re true, what must we do about them?
We're glad you are here. If your attitude is that the gospel of Jesus Christ should be considered seriously, then we count you as a friend, even if we’ve never met face to face.
