1 Corinthians 1:23-24 – We Preach Christ

1 Corinthians 1:23-24
23
But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

-What separates true Christianity from every other “religion” in history (aside from Christianity being real) is that all religion is built upon rules and ceremony.  Rituals that must be kept, elaborate proceedings and steps that keep everything moving along.  Our faith requires none of that.  Christianity is not about a service, it is not about a building, and it is not about legalities.  Christianity is all about Jesus Christ- a man who was also God.  He is the start and end of our religion; “the author and finisher of our faith”. (Hebrews 12:2)  The more you can learn about God’s Word and His plan for the Universe, the better off you’ll be; but if you don’t know anything else, just know Jesus- and that will be enough.
