Why Are You A Christian?

Why are you a Christian/Muslim?

This a question that always bothers me. I always ask myself 
Am I a Christian just because my parents are Christians and I was forced to be one?
Am I a Christian because I go to church or because I bear a Christian name?

One thing we should all realize is that is either we are fully committed to something or we are not committed at all.
We have to learn that being religious has to come with a deep conviction from within us. 
We have to realize the value of our religion and faith. And when you do that you'll come to see that the concept of religion/faith is not as boring and stressful as others make it look like.

Ill like to know your opinion on why you are a Christian/Muslim? And also what's your take on religion?

  • First of all, a christian is not one who goes to church on sunday and answers a christian name. A christian is truly one who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ as savior and Lord. and one who agrees with all his or her hearts the teachings and doctrines of the bible

    consequently, I am a Christian solely because I believe in the Lordship of Jesus Christ and all the teachings and doctrines of the scriptures

  • I am a christian because I have the Holy Spirit living in me which directs my daily living. I am not perfect, I make mistakes but because i know that I have a loving father who is ready to forgive me and wouldn't want to see me go to hell or suffer, I always go back to ask for forgiveness.

  • To be sincere, I was born into a christian family. I really grew up to appreciate it though,despite the decision was made without my consent I still choose to remain a Christian because I believe in the death and resurrection of Christ and he's promise of a better life after.

  • I am a Christian because I believe in all the teachings of Jesus Christ, I believe that He's the Son of God. I believe that he died for my sins. I believe that He's the most supreme being in existence. 

    I also think the Bible is true and very Holy. I love God and I want to continue to serve him, to do that I have to be a Christian, to have that Christlike nature, that's why I am a Christian.

  • Christianity is noida gotten by position  no inheritance  it is a measure of Grace bestowed on mankind who did not worth it at all.  this will not make a Christian to alert is being a Christian to his background of bringing rather he will call it the Grace that Christ has given to him. I am a christian because Christ chose to find me out by his Redemption blood and his redemptive work on the cross of Calvary,  by this he calls me names of Christ that is seed Of Christ.  I am a christian because I understood the reality of loosing for hell in eternity.

  • A Christian is simply defined as Christ-like. A Christian is not someone who goes to church or someone who bear a Christian name but someone who believes that Jesus Christ died on the cross of Calvary for his sins and totally believes in the Holy Bible and ready to do what it says

  • I will like to address something when we hear the word CHRISTIANITY what comes into our mind first. Most people thinks that once you going to church you are a Christian but the answer is No. A true Christian is someone that has the nature of God in him, ready to die with Christ, not afraid of telling the truth about the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Firstly,  you should've known that Nigeria is one of the most religious country in the whole world,, having faith on God has always being our belief. Hardly would you find someone that wouldn't have a one religion or the other,,,  the only difference is the rate or level of our believe in him..

  • I am a Christian because of my family background. I was brought up in a Christian way by my parents. They taught me all I need to know about being a Christian and what it entails. A Christian is a person who believes in God, his teachings and the Bible or scriptures.

    Religion is a way we choose to worship God.

  • We shall know the truth, and the truth shall set us free. Being a Muslim/Christian shouldn't be what to be imposed by parents, it should not be an imitation of what others do. But self conviction by studying the books of God , make more and more researchs about religion by ourselves and never deny the truth we discover .

  • It all happens to us all. We learnt going to church because most of our parents did and we had no option than to follow. However as the we began to grow older, we learnt that there was something deeper that could guarantee a relationship with God which was not sustained by the parent factor

    Except an individual sees God in a new light, church going will be another boring activity

  • The concept of being a Christian need to be addressed properly, Who is a Christian a Christian is someone who believes in the Lord Jesus and also whose lifestyle is Christlike, I'm not a Christian because I was brought up in a Christian home but I'm a Christian as a result of my personal encounter and decision which I made, Christianity is more than religion as it is a way of knowing God experiencially.

  • Being a Christian is not by going to Church or because your parents are Christian niether by bearing Christian name. You ought to believe in the religion you practice. Dedicated and have fate. A Christian is one who truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as his or her personal saviour.

  • First and foremost our lord Jesus Christ said in scripture in john 3:15to16 that who so ever that believeth in him shall not perish but have internal life but whosoever dose not believeth is condemned already so being a Christian is by believing in the name of our lord Jesus Christ period not by law or by your hand work

  • I was born in a musilm family,but am Christian today because i can see the truth in the bible

    Jesus said i am the way,for any one who will go to his father in heaven

    Been a Christian,you should know why you claim Jesus has you savior,not to be of mouth

    Jesus died to save our souls from perish,and he has given us the name above every other names

  • I was born and raised in a Christian home but as I grew up I discover I was just fooling around under the church cover. I prayed and fully committed myself to God. A christian is not a church goer or one in church because of family values and tradition but one that has encounter Christ is has been transformed by the Holy Spirit. Such fellow may fail at times but he is not a conscious sinner. Today I can say I'm a Christian because I now personally know God and has committed my life to him.

  • I am a Christian because Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. And I become a Christian because Jesus Christ is my only Savior and without him there is no way to heaven and I really thank God that am a Christian.

  • Am a Christian because I know that God exist. 

    Am a Christian because I know that am a sinner.

    Am a Christian because I accept the fact that God loves me and because of the love he have for you and me, he sent his only begotten Son Jesus Christ to due for the sin that you and I committed.

    Am a Christian because I believed in the scriptures (Bible) knowing fully well that it is the word of God.

    Am a Christian because I was born to be a Christian.

    Am a Christian because I was born with God's Imagine, I was created by God to represent Him on earth.

  • I am a Christian because it has become my lifestyle and not just my religion. Just like I answer my name when called, I also answer the call of Christ. There is more to it than just religion, true some people are what they are because they grew up in some particular homes but we still have people who fight to be what they want to be. That's what Christianity is all about. Fighting the good fight.

  • I am Christian because God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. And without God you can't make it in life. I thank God that I born to be a Christian.

  • The moment I became born again or became a christian my sole purpose in life on this earth, became to take the gospel to my world and deliver men from the kingdom of darkness into his marvellous light. So yes that is my sole purpose of being a christian which is to propagate the gospel.

  • Firstly a Christian is not just one who wakes up one Sunday morning and says let me go to church, I am a Christian.  No true Christianity is just love ,that is just a common thing between the Muslim and christians.Jesus said the greatest commandment is love and if we love one another the need for division Christian and Muslims will not exist.

  • Let's try and understand this concept; Christianity is not a religion. It is a way of life. Because you are bearing a christian name, or your parent is going to church, and you join them. It doesn't make you a christian. 

    Christian is simply Christ-like. The men following Jesus Never call themselves Christians. The people that are watching them are the ones that call themselves christians, because they are behaving like Christ.

    Anybody that emulate Christ like is a Christian.

  • Am a Christian, I can't claim am a Christian all because am going to church, been born into a Christian family or been born again or been a pastors  daughter. Am a chance when I tend to follow God wills, believe in him,have great faith in him, serves him with all your heart and try to stay away from sin and more over love and help others.thats in when you can say or I can say am a Christian.
