All of us are closely associated with the religion that we follow, and I need not have to tell you a large number of religions that are present in the world. People have the liberty to follow the religion that they want and involve themselves in any kind of religious practice as that choose to. But if we dig a little deeper, only certain religions have the ability to create a deep and long-lasting impact, and Christianity is one of those religions. So here are some of the doctrines of Christianity for which people love the religion.
The doctrine of love:
This is one of the foremost doctrines that people across the world adore, and that is the doctrine of love. Bible tells the importance of love and also states that a good person will also love his enemy. You will be able to forgive even your sworn enemy if your heart is filled with love. There is no point in loving someone who loves you. All of us can do that. But when you love your enemy, you are trying to make a difference there.
The doctrine of forgiveness:
Most doctrines teach you to either hate the evil doers or stay away from them. But that is not the case when it comes to Christianity. The doctrines of Christianity state that you should learn to forgive people no matter how many times they hurt you or wrong. Because the best way to get rid of them is to forgive them and keep them off your thoughts. It takes a lot to forgive than to hate.
The doctrine of salvation:
This obviously has to be the part that inspires many people and draws them into the religion of Christianity. The idea of one man dying for our sins is not possible, and I don’t think there is a religion that gives you this doctrine. This, in fact, is the strongest point that validates the idea of Christianity and it is this greatest deed that people love about in this religion.
Do not judge:
Nobody is perfect in this world, and all of us sin in our own way. But we are also the kind of people who make quick judgements about others who lead a sinful life. Catholicism teaches you not to judge others and also to love everybody equally irrespective of their sins. Avoiding the act of judging others is possible only when you learn to love and forgive everybody.
The doctrine of faith:
Christianity is a religion that is built on the doctrine of faith. Jesus has talked a lot about the importance of faith and the ability to trust even if you haven’t seen him. He calls the people who follow him even in his absence, even if they haven’t seen him are the kind of people He calls blessed. Such is the importance of faith in the religion of Christianity.
Almost all the religions teach you the same doctrines and the same values that you can take for your life. But certain religions are strikingly similar and also believed to have grown from the same root. Christianity and Islam is one such combination. Both the religions have a lot of similarities, and they also believe in similar concepts. SO here are some of the similarities between Islam and Christianity.
Both religions take the same base:
Out of the similarities that these religions enjoy, the first thing that is similar is the starting point of the religion. Both the religions started at the same place and same time and were one religion in the beginning. That is why the Old Testament of Bible and the Quran are almost similar and have the same content and chronology. Almost till the story of Jacob, one of the ideal personalities of the Old Testament, both the books have the same story.
The arrival of Jesus Christ:
Both religions celebrate the coming of Jesus and have almost recorded the same facts in their books. The only difference here is the way Bible sees Jesus Christ and the way Quran Sees Jesus Christ. While the former accept Christ as the son of God, Quran calls him as one of the greatest prophets of time and that he came in the line of Prophet Mohammed and nothing more than that. Though Quran calls Christ nothing but a man with flesh and blood, they have accepted his divinity as well.
Mentioning Mary, the mother of Christ:
Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, is one of the most influential and holy characters you will ever get to see in the Bible. The role that she plays in the institution of Christianity is very much significant. This is because without her supplication things would have taken a different track. Quran also records Mary, in the name of Mariam, as one of the greatest women of the religious history. They speak of Mary more than they speak of their own prophets.
The concept of One God:
Both Christianity and Islam believe in the idea of one true God, and there is no one else. Though Christians believe in the idea of the Holy Trinity that is one God in three different forms, they still haven’t boycotted the rule, and that is the way they have their doctrines set in the same way. One god in three different forms, nevertheless one true God.
It is quite evident that they have the same set of commandments to follow as there are a lot of common rules and dictum that is practised in common. The 10 commandments that the Catholics hail are the commandments that were received during the period of Moses and that is why the same rules apply to Islam community as well.
We’d love to hear from you.
