transformation of self and society happen when you leave your old sinful life behind and you follow Jesus. A Christian will still sin, there was only one sinless person and that was Jesus Christ. When Christians sin all they need to do is acknowledge their sin, ask for forgiveness of the specific sin and repent of their sin, try not to do it again.3
AnalysisChristianity offers the good news of Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the unconditional love and forgiveness of God, and salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ’s resurrection. (Lecture 5, 2017) Some people including Christians are confused on how to achieve salvation and eternal life. Most people believe that if they do good works they will achieve eternal life and get to heaven. They spend their whole life doing good works all while having no faith or very little faith in God. The only way to enteral life is through believing and having faith is the fact that Jesus was resurrected from death. Christians are told by Jesus “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34, NIV) Jesus calls all Christians to love one another meaning love everyone including your enemies. Christianity influences people to want to change their behavior and way of thinking so they can achieve salvation and eternal life. When a Christian stumble and sins God is there with us every step of the way.ReflectionThe way I live out my beliefs in the Christian worldview is to be more like Jesus each and every day. I serve others by volunteering my time at my church and in the community. WhenI go grocery shopping I try to buy five extra items to give to the local C.H.O.W (Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse) program. When I see a need I try to fill it. Each day I decide to turn my back on sin and keep Gods commandments. This can be quite difficult, so I pray to Jesusfor help, strength, wisdom and discernment every day. Also, I share the word of Jesus Christ withthose that will listen. I am not an in your face bible thumping Christian. I am more passive If when I try to share the word of God with someone and they say no thank you or just walk away Iwill pray for them. Being a Christian has brought meaning and purpose to my life. Through my 4
belief in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ I know that I am going to heaven when my mortal body ceases to exist.
