I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is!

How Can I Help a Friend Understand Christianity?


I have a friend who says he is a Christian, but is very liberal and doesn't seem to really "get it."  How can I help him understand true Christianity?

The first thing you need to do is to pray for him. Then you can have a loving talk with him, and you should be sure that you emphasize that Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. Christianity is not just a set of rules or laws we must follow; it is a personal relationship with the living Lord of the universe. This is the most important truth you will want to leave him with, as this is a key ingredient of Christianity. Point out how a personal relationship with Jesus provides all the strength needed to deal with life's harsh realities. Inform him that if he really wants to experience the love of God, the place to begin is a close and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. One of the best ways to make this a strong point is to tell him about your relationship with Jesus. Good luck, but do remember it is God who will ready his heart to receive the truth, and it will be in His perfect timing.

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him."  John 14:6,7
