What is the primary difference between Christianity and all other world religions?

The person of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible differentiates Christianity.

The cross of Christ forever bridged the gap between sinners and a Holy God. The Bible, rightly called the book that made our world, has inspired the best of Western civilization: science, technology, education, and political and economic freedom. Because we are made in God’s image, Christianity values human dignity and liberates those who are often marginalized in other cultures: slaves, women, children and outcasts.

The founders of all other religions are dead. They have offered some sound platitudes for living a moral life, but no hope for eternity based on solid evidence. Theirs are religions of good works and self-sacrifice to gain a pardon for the worshiper’s sins.

So far as we know, humans are the only beings who feel the need for a power beyond themselves and then define that power from their own perspective. We create images and fashion theologies to negotiate and “cut’ deals with God; developing rituals that often misrepresent God.

Christianity draws on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, God’s son who came to earth to teach us how to live and to serve as the sacrifice for our sins. Christianity represents God as all-powerful, all-knowing, and present everywhere. This God, whose nature is Love, redeems and empowers those who accept and trust God’s Grace. (i.e. salvation in Jesus Christ)

In short, world religions are man made. Christianity is God Inspired.
