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.

July Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Psalms 103 - Isaiah 27 including the books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs

Many Christians quibble over whether the Song of Solomon is a homogeneous poem, or just a collection of love lyrics to celebrate an Easter wedding. We believe it is a homogeneous poem and that its purposes are to honor marriage and the joys of wedded love, in a general sense; but primarily to show the Lord's love for Israel, particularly His Godly remnant. The secondary reason for the writing was to show Christ's love for the Church.

This book has a literal meaning, an historical meaning, a doctrinal meaning, and a practical meaning. Some Bible scholars believe there are only two characters in the Song of Solomon, while others believe there are three. Dr. Ironside said the shepherd (or the young man whom the young girl thought to be a shepherd) was Solomon in disguise. Others say Solomon actually did take the maiden away from the shepherd boy she loved, but he could not steal her affections because her love remained faithful to the young shepherd lad. Whether you accept the account of Dr. Ironside or other Bible scholars, it does not change the historical meaning of the book. From the earliest days, the Jews saw in this story a picture of the relationship between Jehovah God and Israel. Israel was wedded to the Lord at Mt. Sinai, when the nation accepted the Law. But she was not faithful to her divine Husband, and played harlot with the idolatrous nations of the world. Eventually she turned her back on her Beloved. However, there will come a day when, like the maiden in the Song of Solomon, Israel will return home and be restored to her Beloved.
