Kamilee Poss CWV-101 November 12, 2019 Jonathan Sharpe Gospel Essentials Christianity is based completely around Jesus Christ, God, and the Holy Spirit. Most every person believes in some higher power. “Jesus Christ is a religious leader whose life and teachings are recorded in the Bible’s New Testament” (Biography.com, 2019). There are few religions that believe in no higher power nor a God. I believe a lot of people look at God and Jesus Christ as a mythical person because they do not know his story. Christians believe that Jesus was born from immaculate conception, but he still lived a normal life as a man. Jesus lived his life leading by example. He lived his life without sin. Jesus lived a perfect sinless life so that he could give up his life for our sins. Just like a normal human, Jesus lived his life with temptation, he felt pain and sorrow, and he grieved. Jesus survived hunger, he even fasted. He reached his eventual death which consisted of mockery, being beaten, and nailed to a cross, dying, and rising again. The following paragraphs will go in deeper about Jesus and his life and what he continues to do for people every day along with my own opinion about Jesus. God In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1, NKJV). Christians see God as Eternal. He has always existed, and he will continue to exist forever. God is holy and righteous. God is all powerful as well as all knowing. He decides what happens to us not only during our lives but after them too. People often hear that God has a plan and that 1
everything happens for a reason, this is because of God’s all knowingness. “God is one being who exists eternally as three persons: Father, Son, and Spirt” (Hiles & Smith, 2015). His other names were God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Every person place and thing in the universe is God’s creation. We are all God’s children. God sent and sacrificed his own son to die for our sins so that ours could be forgiven and we could eventually reach the pearly gates of heaven being welcomed with opened arms. Humanity Humanity can simply be defined as the human race collectively. God created the universe in six days. First, “God said “Let there be light”; and there was light” (Genesis 1:3, NKJV). He spent 4 more days creating the rest of the universe before on the last day, God created man. God
