What is Christianity?
Christianity is about God reaching out his hand in friendship to mankind. Christians believe that the whole world and everything in it was created by God. God is a personal being, a living God who is three, yet one: Father, Son and Spirit, just as we human beings have body, mind and soul! (see the Trinity).

The Bible says God created people in his image, to love him. Yet every person has rebelled against God and sinned. Yet instead of turning his back on us, God became a man, Jesus, who most scholars believe was born about the year 4 BC and lived among us. He taught a message of love throughout Palestine but public opinion turned against him and he was executed as a young man.

He died because of us - the death that we should have died. He was crucified on a cross, but he rose from the dead, and now calls us to trust him, to love him and to repent of our rebellion. If we do this, then we our relationship with God becomes restored and we will live forever with God.

Many non-Christians may think that being a Christian is about belonging to a particular church or following a certain set of rule. Most Christians however would agree that at its root, being a Christian means to be in a living relationship with Jesus.

November Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Luke 23 - I Corinthians 10, including the books of John, Acts, and Romans

After Paul had been seized, he was taken before the council. It was the same council that had crucified Jesus; the same council of which Paul had once been a member; the same council that had stoned Stephen; and the same council that had made repeated efforts to crush the church. Paul stood before this council and gave his life's story. In the first five verses of chapter 22 he tells of his early conduct; in verses 6-16 he tells of his amazing conversion; and in verses 17-21 he tells of the special commission that had been given to him. Notice the one factor that made the Jewish people so irate at Paul. It was not his conduct, for he was gracious and gentle as he presented his speech. His heart overflowed with love and pity for them, so he did not offend them with his attitude. It was the truth of the Word of God that offended them. They were sinful, degenerate men; and, when the truth was told to them, they responded against the one who was speaking the truth.

At this point, it would be good to review the nation of Israel in the Book of Acts. The nation had already committed three murders. John the Baptist had been beheaded, Christ had been crucified, and Stephen had been stoned. The people had great intentions, at this point, of committing the fourth murder; but God delivered Paul through the intervention of a Roman guard. It is interesting to note that on several occasions the Lord appeared to Paul to sustain him. During the Jewish attacks at Corinth, Christ assured Paul that He would be with him and give him many converts (chapter 18:9-11); on board ship going to Rome, during the storm, Christ assured Paul that He would not forsake him (chapter 27:21-25). I feel sure Paul must have leaned heavily on Psalm 23:4, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me."
