He put a desire in my heart, then called me, I answered Him, and He took my punishment for sin and I took His innocence, and He moved into my heart. That's why I'm a follower of Yeshua the Anointed One, the Son of God, not a christian.We all know the how. And the when.
By really, why are you a Christian?
So you follow because of a command and a debt. Ok I can see that.He put a desire in my heart, then called me, I answered Him, and He took my punishment for sin and I took His innocence, and He moved into my heart. That's why I'm a follower of Yeshua the Anointed One, the Son of God, not a christian.
FYI: Christian is just a label to show one isn't Jewish, Hindu, Taoist, etc. and why I don't believe anyone who says they're a christian because it doesn't mean what it used to. I would rather be called by the Greek definition of christian: a kinsman (relative by blood) of the Anointed-One
You stated: "the Son of the one true God"
You said he saved me as the reason why you follow. So you feel obliged to re-compensate the debt owed by his sacrifice.
OK obligation and compliance. Both perfectly good reasons.Because I don't have enough faith to be anything else.
I don't say that to be cute and witty. The honest truth is that my obedience to Christ has a foundation of reason. To be anything else -- Jewish, Buddhist, Atheist, etc, would mean disregarding reason altogether. The only logical approach to faith is the Christian faith.
You don't choose to be a Christian. You can't ask ''why are we a Christian''.... like we had something to do with it. We suddenly believe a man who walked the earth 2000 years ago is God...by ourselves.... .I wanted to know WHY people chose.
They how and when is always stated. They why, seldom.
And WHY is very important.
