Why did Jesus come to Earth? Was it to give birth to Christianity? Was it to began a new religion.?
God never started any religion. In fact, Jesus did not come to began any religion. The Bible tells us in John 1:12 "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:"
Jesus came so that we may receive Him, Believe in Him and become Children of God. Yes, He came so that we may become Children of God. He did not come to Start a new religion.
You can become a Child of God by Believing and receiving Jesus. You cannot be a Child of God because you were born in a Christian, Hindu or Muslim Family. You cannot be a Child of God because you have an English name. But you can become a Child of God only by believing and receiving Jesus.
The first time "Christians" word was used is found in the book of Acts.
Ac 11:26 and when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that even for a whole year they were gathered together with the church, and taught much people, and that the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (ASV)
This name was given to the Faithful disciples. As the time has passed, this word has lost its meaning. Jesus never started any religion. But He came to give us this relationship. Jesus came to give us an opportunity to become Children of God. He actually, extended this relationship to all of us.
And it is very important to become a Child of God before we die or Jesus returns.
Salvation means restoration of the relationship with God. In other words, we can say that Salvation is becoming a Child of God.
Let this Christmas be a reason of Celebration for you. You can be a child of God just by believing in Jesus and receiving Him.
