Don’t trust Christianity

Don’t trust Christianity, trust Christ.

If your hope is in a system, your success will be measured by your ability to adhere to the codes and rules of that system. If your hope is in a Person, your success will depend on the strength and power of that Person.

Jesus saves you, through your faith, which is a gift from God. Jesus is our Warrior-King, who will not let any of his own be snatched from his hand. Look at him. Trust him.

Don’t trust Christianity, trust Christ. Don’t put faith in faith, put faith in Christ.

  1. hmmm….I’m not sure about this one brother in law. I understand the point and agree, but is this a wise way to word it? We have to be careful not to dichotomize between Christ and His Church. Of course, our final faith in Christ is the most important, but that means faith in all Christ does, including his Church.

    I know that’s not what you meant, but i just think this is an area where we need to tread carefully in our words, especially published ones. The church already has enough doubt being thrown at it without our help.

    1. The wording is an attention-getter. And hopefully that’s made clear in the post. I do trust in Christianity, but only because at the center of Christianity is Christ. Christianity without Christ is a mere system like every other religion in the world.

      I didn’t mean to insinuate anything about the Church. That’s why I never mentioned it in the post. I love the Church! But ultimately my faith doesn’t land in the church either. A Christ-less church might as well be Mormon or Hindu. I’m trying to make the distinction between trusting in systems and trusting in a Person– and I think it’s a necessary distinction.

      The name of the post is kinda a play on words– it’s impossible to trust in true Christianity without trusting in Christ.

      Misleading? Maybe– until you read the rest of the post, I hope.

      Am I missing your critique here?
