Benchmark - Gospel EssentialsChristianity is a complex religion that is constantly discussed and debated. There are so many different beliefs and opinions about Christianity. However, most people should agree that the religion revolves around God, human nature, Jesus, and the restoration. God and Jesus are two parts of the holy trinity which holds the entire religion together. Human nature is how humans behave with the knowledge that God blesses them with. Restoration has to do with the salvation God promises to his followers. These elements are what ties together the Christian religion and studying them can help bring us closer to God. GodGod is the creator of everything. He is the creator of all of humanity and the entire universe. God is everywhere and he knows everything. He has knowledge about everything that has happened all throughout history. “Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please” (Isaiah 46:9-10). God is love and He has everlasting love for all His children. “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of Godand knows God.Anyone who does not love does not know God, becauseGod is love” (1 John 4:7-8). God is the most powerful thing in the universe. He wants us to be aware of His power so we can put all of our trust in Him (Who is God, 2011). Last but not least, God is merciful. We continuously sin against him, yet he still finds a way to forgive us if we seek Him. God is the creator of everything, the ultimate forgiver, and He is our father. Humanity1
