I Give My Life To God

2978 words - 12 pages

Christians believe Jesus Christ was sent to Earth to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament. Christians believe Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again three days later. Jesus Christ ascended into heaven after the third day, and now sits at the right hand of God, the father, in Heaven. As Christians, we wait for the day Jesus Christ will return to judge both the living and the dead. But, before the judgment day comes, we are called to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Bible). The previous verse mentioned means, as Christians we are to spread the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, to everyone and give them the option to accept the Christian belief and have eternal life in Heaven when Jesus Christ returns.
I was born into the Christian faith, although I did not have a church to call home until I was four years old. My mom was raised in the Catholic Church, my dad was influenced by the Baptist Church, and I was raised in the Lutheran Church; growing up, I have gotten to experience these three different denominations of Christianity. Although I was born into the Christian faith, I stayed by my own choice. I am proud to call myself a Christian!
Every denomination of Christianity is unique in some way. Each denomination holds the Bible as their sacred text, believes Jesus Christ is the son of God and died for our sins, and believes in the Triune God (the father, son, and Holy Spirit). The differences between the denominations of Christianity range from the interpretation of the Bible to the holy sacraments of baptism and communion. I have been influenced by three denominations of Christianity; these denominations are the Catholic Church, the Baptist Church, and the Lutheran Church.
The Catholic Church believes someone becomes a member of the church once they are baptized. To continue this membership after baptism this person must acknowledge the one true faith and cannot “withdraw from the unity of the body of the Church in schism, heresy, or be excommunicated by legitimate authority because of serious sins” (Most). Catholics believe the Church is in the form of a “hierarchical society,” meaning it is made up of subjects and superiors who rightfully rule the subjects. The Roman Pontiff, high priest, and the bishops under him are the superiors. “The [Catholic] Church is also a monarchical society,” where “the Pope rules with full power…with jurisdiction over the entire Church” (Most). Catholics believe they are the one true church of God because the other churches were founded by men who had no authority from God to do so (Most). The Catholic Church has seven sacraments, but the two it shares with Baptist and Lutherans are baptism and communion. Catholics baptize people not only in to the Christian faith but also into the Catholic Church. Communion is the Lord’s Supper, Catholics believe when someone is receiving the bread and wine, they are actually receiving the body and blood of Jesus Christ; this is called...
