Jesus Christ is the Difference
If you are going to follow Jesus Christ, it may be necessary to go through trials and tribulations because of your faith. To be a Christian, one must turn from sin and turn to Jesus Christ. It is a mind set on Christ instead of the former lifestyle lived in disobedience to God. The Bible tells us that as believers, we are to be holy. Christians are obedient to Christ and His Word (the Bible).
There are many religions in the world and they may all seem to be similar things. However, Christianity is different, it is all about Jesus. He says He is the only Way to Eternal life in Heaven with God. ‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” (In the Bible, John 14:6)
From the Bible:
‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. ‘
1 Peter 1:3-5
