What Is Christianity

1.  Christianity is NOT a Western religion.

The birth place of Christianity was Jerusalem, Judea (Israel), just as Judaism was. Christianity is the religion derived from Jesus Christ, based on the Bible as sacred Scripture, the Old Testament and the New Testament. Due to the fact that the Roman Emperor Constantine adopted Christianity as the state religion, Christianity predominates in the Western world; but Christianity is not a Western religion.

Mat 1:1, THE book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:

Note: According to the flesh, Jesus was born a Jew, a descendant of Abraham.

Mat 2:1-2, Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying: Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him."

Note: The people who first worshiped Jesus were wise men from the East, not from the West.

Christianity takes its start with Jesus of Nazareth, the historical Jesus. Almost everything that is known of Him, comes from His apostles and disciples who put the events of His life and the content of His teaching in the Gospels and Acts as well as the Epistles - the New Testament. It can be said the only authentic account of Jesus Christ is the New Testament. Any human reconstruction is invalid and inaccurate, for only the Scriptures inspired by the Holy Spirit is the sole authority. The twelve apostles appointed by Jesus were all Jews, and it is within that framework of the Old Testament that they interpreted the significance of what they had received and perceived, seen, heard and experienced: He was the Christ, or Messiah, who had been promised to the patriarchs of Israel. As the record of those promises, the Hebrew Scriptures were sacred for early Christians no less than for Jews, fulfilling the claim to a continuity with the history of the people of God since the creation of the world. The apostles Paul, John, Peter and others were revealed the message of Jesus Christ to His church and peoples of the world. Together with the selective memories of Jesus in the Gospels as inspired by the Holy Spirit, the early writings of the apostles (letters or epistles to churches) were circulated widely in Christian communities throughout the Roman Empire; eventually they formed the Christian New Testament as distinguished from the Hebrew Scriptures or the Old Testament.

During the second and third centuries the church suffered persecution and martyrdom, but in the fourth century the emperor Constantine (306–337) made Christianity the official religion of the realm. This is the beginning of apostasy and corruption of the state religion which later was known as the Roman Catholic Church. Christianity is not a product of Greek and Roman thought, therefore Greek and Roman thought cannot be used to interpret Christian theology. Although the New Testament was written in Greek, but it was not a product of Greek civilization or thought. The fusion of imperial and ecclesiastic powers created corrupt religious practices such as worship of the images of Jesus Christ, Mary and apostles and un-Scriptural liturgy and rituals.

Christianity as a religion, is not just respect for what is sacred; it is used in 

Jam 1:27, Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Note: Here the word religion in Greek is thrēskeia  which means fear of God, piety toward God, worthy to be embraced by all nations, religious discipline; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Christianity is the revealed religion, not self-made religion, not man-made religion. In other words, you must worship God according to His Word, His Way – not your way, man’s way, or anyway. Unstained in Greek is aspilos which means spotless, unsullied, free from vice, irreproachable; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Christianity as practiced in the West is stained by imperialism, colonialism, capitalism, hegemonism and secularism. Christianity can be summed up in

1Ti 3:16, By common confession, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, was vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. Christianity is divine, historical, spiritual, transcendental, and eternal. By this Biblical definition, Christianity is not the religion practiced by Western powers known in history and today. Western powers sadly and systematically have misrepresented Christianity.

At the National Prayer Breakfast recently, Obama testified “as a Christian” coincides with Jesus’teaching that “for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.”

Luk 12:45-48,“But if that slave says in his heart: My master will be a long time in coming, and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers. And that slave who knew his master's will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.”

Jesus was speaking about the faithful servant and the evil servant.

Although Obama misapplied the Scriptures, it is in accordance with Christian principle of justice that the rich should and must pay taxes in higher proportion. Since America is not a Christian nation, even based on a secular principle of justice, the rich must pay more taxes. It is not fair for the rich to pay a tax rate lower than the middle class. If is very un-Christian for Obama to support same-sex marriage and sent a letter of congratulation to a gay couple. It is very un-Christian for officials to lie in public or in private. It is un-Christian to attack any nation under the pretext of freedom, democracy, justice, etc. It is un-Christian to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other nation such as the US-Taiwan Relations Act. It is the will of God that nations should seek peace and harmony and not war and aggression. Obama's "pivot to Asia" policy is American code word for aggression and expansion into Asia Pacific to rob and loot China's territories and resources in the South China Sea and the East China Sea.

All religious beliefs are generally called religions, except Christianity. Christianity in the true meaning of the word is not a religion as other religions. Christianity is a personal relation with Jesus Christ. You can be a member of a local church, but without relationship with Jesus Christ. For that reason the Church of Jesus Christ is the body of Christ. You can be a member of a local church without being a member of the body of Christ. To be a member of the body of Christ, you must have the Spirit of Christ dwelling in you. That is why Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

2.   Christianity is NOT based on Western or any human tradition.

Not only Western traditions are contrary to the teachings of the Bible, many church traditions (as demonstrated by the Roman Catholic Church and others) are also contrary to the teachings of God’s Word. For that reason Christians do not accept the traditions of men.

Mat 15:3, He answered them: And why do you transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?

Mat 15:6, So, for the sake of your tradition, you have made void the Word of God.

There are many traditions of men such as in the Roman Catholic Church and others are contrary to the Word of God.

Mar 7:8, You leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of men."

Mar 7:9, And He said to them: You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God, in order to keep your tradition!

Mar 7:13, Thus making void the Word of God through your tradition which you hand on. And many such things you do."

Col 2:8, See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ.

Note: Here the word tradition quoted above in Greek is paradosis which means a giving over or handing down which is done by word of mouth or in writing, i.e., tradition by instruction, history, narrative, precept, belief, conduct, etc., - it occurs about 13 times in the New Testament.

All has been used in a negative way about the human tradition contrary to the Word of God. Some aspects of Western culture and many traditions such as Halloween, etc, and superstition, lucky charm, astrology, and racial beliefs, etc. are not compatible with the Bible.

There is also good tradition handed down by the apostles as written in the Book of Acts and the Epistles which Christians must follow.

2Th 3:6, Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is living in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us.

Note: Whether tradition is good or bad it depends on the source. If tradition comes from man it may make void the Word of God. If tradition handed down by the apostles as written in the New Testament, it is according to Christ. Christians live in accord with the tradition received from the apostles as it is written in the New Testament.

3.   Christianity is NOT a white man religion.

The white man’s burden was the greatest historical fraud. The greatest historical evil was caused by the deeds committed under the pretext of white man’s burden.The greatest evil which happened to the world was the white man’s burden. The white man’s burden has been the greatest historical fraud with vast political, military, economic and financial and social implications. Under pretext of the white man’s burden, Western imperialism and colonialism and capitalism were born and justified. The evil created by imperialism and colonialism and capitalism is incalculable and inestimable and immeasurable. Even today hegemonism has replaced imperialism and colonialism, it continues to divide the world, and seeks to dominate the world by wars of aggression, political armstwisting, military supremacy, legal terrorism, and economic colonialism, massive fraud and financial looting, etc. White supremacists may call themselves Christians, but Jesus Christ defines liars and killers as children of the devil.

The history of white men and white nations is the history of wars of conquest, brutalities, atrocities, aggressions, oppressions, exploitations, demarcations, and dominations. White men had and have plundered and plagued the world as practiced by Western imperialists, colonialists and capitalists and hegemonists. The wisdom of Jesus: You shall know them by their fruit. White men under the guise of Christianity did not and do not produce good fruit.

Mat 7:17-18, So, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A good tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

You shall know them by their fruits, this is the only reliable empirical evidence.

Mat 12:33, "Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.

Luk 6:43-44, "For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit; for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thorns, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush.

Gal 5:22-23, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law.

Mat 7:16-17, You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit.

Note: The trees of imperialism, colonialism, capitalism and hegemonism of the West produce much evil fruits. By the authority of Jesus Christ, because the white nations do not produce good fruit, so you know they are un-Christian. Therefore, Christianity is not a white man religion.

4.   Christianity is NOT a tool of Western democracy and capitalism.

There is no such a thing called Christendom; there are only Western powers that pretend to be Christian nations. There are no Christian nations; there are Western nations that claim to be Christian but practice un-Christian activities under the sun. There is not one nation in the world which is fit or qualified to be called a Christian nation. There are nations whose populations are mostly nominal Christians. There are very strange white people who think they are Christians simply because they were born white.

Democratic government is supposed to be a form of government in which supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them through a system of representation usually involving free elections. Elections have become meaningless and useless because they are hijacked by moneyed interests. Whoever has the money got elected. Special interests control the election process. Money poisons politics and political process. Democracy is a political theory based on the majority rule, but the reality is that today it is the tool of making the masses to serve the interests of the few. Political parties serve themselves and serve the special interests but they do not serve the interests of the people. Democracy as practiced by the West has made the few the elite and privileged class. The so-called democratic nations rest their power in the hands of the few for the benefits of the few. Abraham Lincoln probably believed in government of the people, by the people and for the people. Today who can honestly tell what government is of the people, by the people and for the people? The Western propaganda machine spews out lies, falsehoods, delusions and illusions and propagandas that fool the masses and the world. Government and politics are darkened by corruption and greed and lust. Wall Street and Washington have powerfully proved the fallacy of democracy and capitalism.

Capitalism was born of greed and bred by greed. From million-dollar college presidents, to 2.5 trillion predatory health-care industry, to 2.5 trillion flawed legal system, to hedge funds managers earning several billions a year, to all former U.S. presidents becoming multi-millionaires and a great number of former high-ranking appointees becoming multi-millionaires, to tax-cuts for the rich, to highest debts and deficits in the world, to dollar dropping and losing value, to uncontrollable and innumerable financial frauds and scams, to high unemployment, to huge income inequality, to bailout of Wall Street with billions in bonuses for executives, etc. all point to the fact that Capitalism is bad for America and bad for the world.

Capitalism is a fraud, the biggest fraud, as demonstrated by Wall Street. Quantitative easing still means printing money. Orderly resolutions still means bailout. You cannot dress up lies with the veneer of truth. You can dress up a corpse; but it is still a dead body. Politicians and bureaucrats and technocrats do not know how to manage, they only know how to spend and waste, so they resort to words, flowery and hollow words, to charm and cheat the peoples.

For about 300 years American preachers have preached that capitalism is compatible with Christianity. By the Word of God, capitalism is not compatible with Christianity. 1Ti 6:10, For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced their hearts with many pangs. Root in Greek is rhiza which means cause, origin, source, offspring; - it occurs about 17 times in the New Testament. The love of money is the origin of all evils. Evil is the offspring or progeny of greed. Evil in Greek is kakos which means wrong, crime, wickedness, perniciousness, destructiveness; - it occurs about 51 times in the New Testament. The evils created by capitalism or the love of money are apparent and prevalent and universal in the world.

The love of money makes people wander away from the faith. Capitalism focuses on earthly things. Col 3:1-2, If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. Christians are supposed to seek the things that are above, and set their minds on things that are above. Capitalism produces materialism and set the minds of people on things that are on earth.

Christianity is heavenly, but capitalism is earthly and worldly.

Hbr 13:5, Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for He has said: I will never fail you nor forsake you."

Note: People who love money, their lives are not free. They are enslaved by money. Greed is a bondage. Prosperity gospel has caused the Crystal Cathedral to file for bankruptcy, and the love of money even has ruined many preachers and their followers.

5.   Christianity is NOT a tool of Western imperialism and colonialism.

The history of Western imperialism and colonialism is the history of atrocities, inhumanities, brutalities and injustice. Imperialism does not mean the rule of an emperor. China was a peaceful and civilized nation and had many emperors; most Chinese emperors did not have an expansionist ambition. Most Chinese emperors did not wish to have any dealing with foreign nations in particular the West. Imperialism was a Western phenomenon, an undertaking that employs oppressive expansionist systems, based on territorial acquisition, political domination and military suppression of other nations by the imperial power. Imperialism is both a form of polity and policy or practice. The infamous Opium Wars instigated by Britain, France, Spain, Russia, the United States, Japan and others shed the light on the vicious nature and pernicious practice of imperialists.

Colonialism is a political-economic phenomenon whereby various European nations explored, conquered, demarcated, oppressed, settled, controlled, and exploited large areas of the world. Europe became very rich by economic exploitation and absorption of the colony’s natural and human resources in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Imperialism and colonialism are twin brothers of white supremacists for the expansion of power and wealth, religious and political beliefs.

Imperialism and colonialism represent the worst of the Western powers, the irony and iniquity is the claim made by these Western powers to be Christian nations. The justification of imperialism and colonialism was the infamous white man’s burden – the alleged duty of white peoples to bring their civilization and religion to other peoples regarded as backward or inferior. They even sent missionaries to the nations they attacked such as China where they oppressed, robbed, looted, and killed the Chinese people. How in the world do you expect the oppressed Chinese would believe in a religion that caused so much evils, atrocities and brutalities? The truth is: Christianity was not and is not the religion represented by Western imperialists and colonialists and capitalists. These white supremacists betrayed and dishonored the Lord Jesus Christ by pretending to be what they were not and what they are not. Jesus Christ says, 

Luk 6:46, "Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you? 

The West was not and is not practicing Christianity as written in the Bible.

Recently an 18th-century Chinese vase was sold for world record-breaking $85.5 million at an auction in London. It must have been among the countless treasures looted by British and other Western and Japanese troops when they sacked the imperial palaces in Beijing during the second Opium War, from 1856 to 1860. This just gives you a glimpse of the whole sum (items in millions) of China’s treasures now kept in Western and Japanese and other public museums and private collections. These thefts, robberies and lootings of China’s national treasures were incredible and invaluable. According to market value, these treasures amount to at least US$100,000 trillion, not counting interest, not counting the profits made by illegal auctions, and not including the priceless Yuan Ming Yuan (the imperial summer palace) burned by Western imperialists.

If there is any decency in these Western nations and Japan that instigated and looted China’s national treasures over the years, it is about time for them to return to China. What belong to China should return to China. Mar 12:17, And Jesus said to them: Give back to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they were amazed at Him. In Greek give back is apodidōmi which means to pay off, discharge what is due, return, restore, requite, recompense; - it occurs about 48 times in the New Testament.

All imperialistic powers are aggressive warmongering nations. The evils created by imperialism and colonialism are incalculable, inestimable, and immeasurable. Imperialism and colonialism are tools of evil; they are not compatible with Christianity. 

Mat 26:52, Then Jesus said to him: Put your sword back into its place; for all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Imperialism and colonialism have a bloody history. All who take the sword will perish by the sword; Japan was a good example after the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Empires have come and gone. Where is Babylon now? Where is the Roman Empire? Where is the British Empire?... As long as humans have passions for money and power and sex, there will be wars. 

Jam 4:1-2, What causes wars, and what causes fightings among you? Is it not your passions that are at war in your members? You desire and do not have; so you kill. And you covet and cannot obtain; so you fight and wage war. Passion in Greek is hēdonē which means lust, pleasure, inordinate desire; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. The word hedonism comes from this Greek word.

Imperialists and colonialists have used Christianity as a tool to subdue other peoples and nations, and missionaries have been used as their agents, but Christians must reject imperialism and colonialism. For imperialism and colonialism are not compatible with Christianity. Imperialism and colonialism do not know the way of peace. Jesus Christ says, 

Mat 5:9, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Note: By the same token, warmongers can be called sons of the devil.

Rom 14:19, Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.

Note: Building military bases and missile and anti-missile sites all over the world do not pursue what makes for peace and harmony. That is exactly what is wrong with imperialism and hegemonism.

2Cr 13:11, Finally, brethren, farewell. Mend your ways, heed my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.

Note: Live in peace is the best way of life for this world.

Hbr 12:14, Strive for peace with all men, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.

Note: Strive in Greek is diōkō which means to run after, press on, pursue, seek after eagerly; - it occurs about 44 times in the New Testament. Peace is something that we must seek after eagerly. Militant nations know how to make wars, but they do not know how to make peace. Make war is easy, make peace is difficult.

Jam 3:18, And the harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Note: Western powers sow seeds of division among nations and reap the harvest of conflict and wickedness and wars.

1Pe 3:11, Let him turn away from evil and do right; let him seek peace and pursue it.

Let Western powers that have a history of imperialism and colonialism, turn away from evil and do right.

6.   Christianity is NOT a tool of Western hegemonism.

Western hegemonism today pursues world domination under the pretext of promoting freedom and democracy. Under the pretext of freedom and democracy, Western powers have done so much evils in the world. They employ divide and conquer tactics. They pursue military supremacy to blackmail and threaten other nations. They make military alliances to target some nations.

In practice, freedom and democracy are hollow and meaningless. What freedom if you are discriminated, exploited, abused, threatened, oppressed, raped, robbed, and even killed?  What democracy when the system of government serves the interest of the rich and powerful? What is the use of freedom if the government does not do the will of the people? What is the use of democracy when the insiders get richer and richer while the vast majority of people get poorer and poorer? Western democracy is a fraud because it does not serve the interest of the greatest number of people. The Bible does not support corrupt political system of the West. Jesus Christ says, Jhn 8:32, And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

The so-called the Western-sponsored world order is a product of Western hegemonism today. White supremacists try by hook or by crook to contain China, the most un-Christian activities since 1949. Hegemonists today are the direct descendants of the Western imperialists and colonialists in the Opium Wars. Since the Opium Wars imperialists and colonialists, and now hegemonists, have been threatening and destabilizing and dominating the world. Now they even maliciously charge China’s expansionism. The fact is unlike the sole superpower; China does not have one overseas military base and does not build anti-missile sites all over the world. Hegemonism is a toxic combination of unholy ambition for world domination with dirty tricks of frauds and false charges plus seeking absolute military supremacy. There are two greatest threats confronting the world today, two international bad actors, namely hegemonism and terrorism, neither of them is Christian and should be rejected by the whole world.

Jdg 9:8-15, "The trees once went forth to anoint a king over them. And they said to the olive tree: Reign over us! But the olive tree said to them: Should I cease giving my oil, with which they honor God and men, and go to sway over trees?  Then the trees said to the fig tree: You come and reign over us! But the fig tree said to them: Should I cease my sweetness and my good fruit, and go to sway over trees?  Then the trees said to the vine: You come and reign over us!  But the vine said to them: Should I cease my new wine, which cheers both God and men, and go to sway over trees? Then all the trees said to the bramble: You come and reign over us!  And the bramble said to the trees: If in truth you anoint me as king over you, then come and take shelter in my shade; but if not, let fire come out of the bramble and devour the cedars of Lebanon!  White supremacists want to reign over other peoples and nations although they do not have oil to honor God and men, they do not have sweetness and good fruit, they do not have new wine to cheer both God and men, they do not have anything (except nuclear weapons) to deserve to rule and to sway over the world. Western hegemonism is not compatible with Christianity. They kill and rob people.

It is a historical fact that Western powers have used Christianity as an imperial tool to oppress China, especially the Roman Catholic Church the monolithic politico-religious organization which is called the State of Vatican under pope. Consequently China may have a negative attitude about Christianity. Western powers make a total false presentation. Christianity is not a Western religion. The United States of America is not a Christian nation, in fact it is the most secular and un-Christian nation in the world. How?

(A). America is practicing a false version of Christianity because it embraces the prevalent values of money, power and sex which are contrary to the Christian value of faith, hope and love.

(B). The U.S. Supreme Court outlaws prayers and Bible reading in public schools.

(C). There are some states and courts that respect homosexuality and recognize same-sex marriage which is an abomination in the sight of God.

(D). The United States is a very greedy nation which violates the teaching of Christ. Mat 23:25, “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.” Col 3:5, “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.” Although most Americans do not worship idols (except primitive immigrants), however most Americans worship money. Greed is the same sin as idolatry.  People who represent Wall Street, Washington, and Hollywood are experts in greed. Wall Street created an economic and financial crisis which looted the world more than $50 trillion.

(E). Most Americans give to church not because they love Christ but because they get tax deductions.

(F). Many who call themselves Christians (including people who call themselves pastors or ministers) commit sexual immorality and divorce which Christ forbids. The American way of life is not the Christian way of life.

(G). Christianity is not represented by any nation; it is hypocritical that the U.S. has religious freedom envoy or ambassador to represent Christianity. Christianity has nothing to do with the United States of America, it only disgracefully distorts Christianity. Jesus Christ does not authorize any nation or organization or individual to represent Christianity.

(H). Falun Gong is a cult with political ambition. It America believes Falun Gong is a religion; it is fine to welcome of members of Falun Gong to immigrate to America. It would not a spectacular to watch 10,000 Falun Gong members encircle the White House or the Capitol in practice of their religion.

(I). The followers of Dalai Lama, a high-paid foreign agent used by Western powers to divide and destroy China has failed miserably as he is coming to the end of his life, do use riots under the cover of religion for political reason. China has every right to crackdown on any subversive or unlawful activity under the cloak of religion.

I do hope Chinese government and leaders realize true Christians are not agents of foreign imperial powers to do subversive work to destabilize China. I do hope Chinese Christians may have the right to freely proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ anywhere and establish churches without permission of any state authority or the Three-Self-Reliant Organization. History has taught it is a very bad thing for any organization or nation to have monopoly of religion.

7.   Christianity is NOT a supporter of Western values.

Western values are secular, Christianity teaches spiritual values. Western values of money, power and sex are contrary to the Christian values of faith, hope and love. I cannot find any sin or crime which is not related to the love of money, power and sex.

1Ti 6:10, For the love of money is the root of all evils; it is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced their hearts with many pangs.

Capitalism was born and bred and is sustained by the love of money.

2Ti 3:2-5, For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.

Hbr 13:5, Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for He has said, "I will never fail you nor forsake you."

Note: Wall Street has looted the whole world through creating the recent economic and financial crisis. Wall Street created billionaires who did nothing of value except gamble on other people’s money. ?Washington has incurred the largest debts and deficits in the world. Politicians and bureaucrats live in lavish lifestyle at taxpayers’ expense. All former presidents have become multi-millionaires, and many more high-ranking officials through buying and selling influence also have become multi-millionaires

Psa 62:11, Once God has spoken; twice have I heard this: that power belongs to God.

Note: Power belongs to God. When power is in the hand of man, it corrupts. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Government is the monopoly of power. For that reason, it produces dictators and corrupt officials and self-serving bureaucrats. The biggest character flaw of a white supremacist is that he seeks power over others just as a hegemonist nation seeks power over other nations. The bigger power a man has, the more dangerous he becomes. You see the arrogance of Wall Street business executives because they have power. You see the arrogance of Washington because they have power. Wall Street and Washington exercise power over peoples and nations. The Babylon of corruption. For example, Pilate said to Jesus: Do you not know that I have power...?

Jhn 19:10, Pilate therefore said to him: You will not speak to me? Do you not know that I have power to release you, and power to crucify you?"

Note: All little men become puffed up when they have power? An arrogant preacher of prosperity gospel said, Do you know who I am? A son of a politician who killed a person in drunk driving said, Do you know who my father is? For the same reason, children and adults in the West like to play with guns. For guns have power to kill people. Psychopathic persons like to kill people to demonstrate they have power. For that reason, a police is dangerous because he has gun and he can kill people. Sometimes police are more dangerous than criminals. You know criminals will kill people but you do not expect a police to kill people and abuse his power. All warmongers and terrorists are inflicted with the disease of power syndrome.

A desire to have power over people is a most dangerous and deadly desire. People who have power can abuse and mistreat and even torture people without cause. The West uses World Bank, IMF and WTO to work and strengthen the advantages of Western powers over other nations in order to perpetuate their status of domination and exploitation of the world. The West uses NATO and alliances to have military bases and missile bases all over the world to achieve absolute military supremacy. Having absolute military supremacy, Western powers can blackmail and threaten and oppress any nation. The political, economic, financial, and military systems of the world tilt in favor of Western alliances. The Western mass media spreads the culture of violence, greed, and degradation.

A journalist who does not know the Lord wrote, What I’m not saying is that Christianity should be disengaged from politics. In fact, the early Christian movement was born in politics, in oppositional circles within Judaism fighting Roman oppression. There is great debate over how to understand the relationship between Jesus’ spirituality and his approach to politics, but his preaching clearly challenged the powers-that-be. He was, after all, crucified.

Absolutely false. This is a rotten distortion and misrepresentation of Christianity. There was no early Christian political movement. It was the great commission of Jesus Christ to proclaim the Gospel to the whole world. 

Mat 28:19,“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Jesus Christ did not come into the world to fight Roman oppression. Jesus did not lead a revolution to overthrow the evil Roman Empire. The truth is the liberating force; the truth does not need liberating. Jesus declares, 

Jhn 8:32,“And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

1Ti 1:15,“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” Note: Jesus Christ came into the world, sent by the Father, to save sinners. The mission of Jesus Christ was spiritual, not political; heavenly, not earthly. With regard to Jesus’approach to politics, Jhn 18:36,“Jesus answered: My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My Kingdom is not of this realm.” This is the root cause of confusion and conflict by which the founders of Western imperialism and colonialism used Christianity to serve its secular goal of world domination. Western powers have used Christianity as a tool to conquer the world and oppress China and other nations. The West is practicing a false version of Christianity. Many American presidents and those aspire to be presidents had and have used Christianity to advance their ambition. See  An Open Letter to President Bush. The Kingdom which God promised to His children is not Western democracy, not capitalism or so-called freedom. Christianity is not a Western religion; the West has disgraced Christianity. Prosperity gospel is a false gospel born of greed, love of money and the world.

1Ti 6:17,“Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.”

Note: Christians do not fix their hope on this present world which capitalists do. The prevalent values of the West are money, power and sex. The Christian values are faith, hope and love.

1Cr 15:19,“If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.”

Western way of life is geared to this life only. Christian way of life is geared to the life to come – eternity.

In summary, what the Westerners seek are earthly, material, and carnal things of this world. Christians seek heavenly, spiritual and eternal things. Christianity is not compatible with the Western way of life. 

Hbr 11:16,“But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.”

Note: Christians desire a better country than anyone in the world; that is a heavenly one. The Holy City is the New Jerusalem.

1Cr 2:9,“But as it is written: The things which God has prepared for those who love Him, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and have not entered into the heart of man.”

“The Easter season is a celebration of deliverance, and the liturgical calendar sets Easter Week up as a kind of catharsis.”

No, Easter is neither a liturgy nor a catharsis.

Mar 16:6, “And he (angel) said to them: Do not be surprised; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him.”

Easter has to do with the historical and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. The empty tomb is the evidence of the power of God. 

Rom 4:24-25, “But also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness--for us who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.”

The two cardinal doctrines of Christianity: Jesus died for sinners and was raised to life for our justification. Please read JUSTIFICATION.  

Rom 10:9,“If if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Liberation gospel is a political gospel, a false gospel. Christian is rooted in the idea of salvation, the salvation of souls. 

Rom 1:16,“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”

2Th 2:13,“But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth.”

A man without the Holy Spirit cannot know the faith in the truth. The Christian faith is not based on Augustine or any philosopher, but based on the Son of God and the Savior of the world. Jhn 14:6,“Jesus said to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Jesus Christ is the only way to God, the only way to have salvation, this is the truth.

8.   Christianity is the teachings of Jesus Christ and the faith that He is our God and Savior.

Christianity is defined by Jesus Christ as it is written in the Bible, specifically the New Testament. The interpretations of men cannot define Christianity. The interpretations of men contrary to the teachings of Christ are false and heretic. Christianity is a monotheistic faith essentially distinguished from other religions by the fact that in it everything is crucially connected to the person of and work accomplished by Jesus of Nazareth. The historical Jesus was the true Jesus – God who became Man. The work of Jesus Christ was not primarily healing the sick or performing miracles (although He did); it was the redemption of mankind by His vicarious and substitutionary death on the cross. Jesus Christ came to save sinners from eternal death.

Christianity is the monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament. Among the three largest groups which claim to be Christian, the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox, and the Protestantism, Protestantism is by far better and closer resemblance of stemming from the teachings of Jesus in the 1st century both in belief and practice. Monotheistic religion is not necessarily Christian, for example Unitarianism, Islam, etc. Christianity is not only monotheistic but Biblical. Judaism is the monotheistic religion according to the Old Testament. Christians believe especially the New Testament, also the Old Testament. The New Testament fulfilled the Old Testament, just as Christianity fulfilled Judaism.

The sacred scripture of Christianity is the Holy Bible, particularly the New Testament. Its principal doctrines are that Jesus is the Son of God (the second Person of the Holy Trinity), that God’s love for the world is the essential nature of His being, and that Jesus Christ died to redeem humankind. Christianity was originally an obedience of Jews who accepted Jesus as the Messiah, and the obedience to the Great Commission to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ quickly became global and including much of the Gentile world. The early church was led by the apostles presiding in Jerusalem as directed by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was the Head of the church; His apostles were ministers of the church. The authority of the apostles was given by Jesus Christ and led by the Holy Spirit who was and is the sole Representative of Jesus Christ on earth. The pope or any man is not the representative of Christ on earth. You cannot say that Paul or Peter or John shaped the early church; they were only instruments in the hand of God. 1Cr 1:1, Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and our brother Sosthenes.Jam 1:1, James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greeting.2Pe 1:1, Simeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours in the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ.” 

Jud 1:1, Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James, to those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ.” 

Rev 1:9, I John, your brother, who share with you in Jesus the tribulation and the Kingdom and the patient endurance, was on the island called Patmos on account of the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 

These were the convictions and views of the apostles as they were called to be servants of Jesus Christ.

The apostles and early disciples were not church fathers. The idea of church fathers is un-Scriptural. Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp of Smyrna, Origen of Alexandria, John Chrysostom, Tertullian, Augustine of Hippo, etc. were not fathers of the church. The Church of Jesus Christ has only one Father who is God. The false idea of church fathers was originated by the Roman Catholic Church. Jesus Christ says, 

Mat 23:9, And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 

The Word of Jesus is supreme and final. Jesus Christ says, 

Jhn 6:63, It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.

Jhn 20:17, Jesus said to her: Do not hold Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brethren and say to them: I am ascending to My Father and your Father, to My God and your God." God is the Father of Christians – the followers of Jesus Christ.

1Cr 8:6, Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.

Note: God the Father and the Son are One. For Christ says, 

Jhn 10:30, I and the Father are One."

Eph 4:6, One God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all.

Jam 1:17, Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

Although it is impossible to present an exhaustive summary of all that Christianity is and has ever been and will forever be; Christianity can be succinctly said to be the personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This article is not trying to sketch some of the main points in the history of Christianity; it mainly presents Jesus Christ as our God and Savior. 

Tts 2:13-14, Looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. The Word of God does not require a consensus of men, much less a majority consensus. The Bible speaks for itself and interprets itself. 

Jhn 14:6, Jesus said to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. Jesus Christ is the only Way to God, this is the Truth. If you believe the truth in Christ, you will have Life. 

Jhn 17:3, "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. This is the simple essence of Christianity. If you don’t know this, everything else you know would not matter. The words of eternal life do not need human agreement or affirmation.

Christianity is a historical religion in the sense the Christian faith is historical, with real people and real time and place – it is not fairy tale or myth. It appears as the central events of human history both the redemption it promises and the revelation to which it lays claim: Jesus was born under Caesar Augustus and "suffered under Pontius Pilate," at particular dates in the chronology of the history of Rome. In this respect Christianity shows its continuing affinities with the Judaism because Christianity fulfilled Judaism, in the progressive revelation of Divine dispensation. Dispensation means the divine management of periods of time. The primal revelation for Judaism is the divine declaration to Moses,

Exd 3:6, "I am the God of your father - the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." To this primal revelation Christianity adds the assertion, 

Hbr 1:1-3, GOD, who at myriad times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. The Scripture cited above definitively describes the historical process of progressive revelation and capsulizes the succinct summary of the substance of Christianity. Christianity is centered in the incarnation, life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus, the Christ, the anointed and chosen One of Godthe coming King of kings and Lord of lords.

All Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God, God having become human and the Savior of the world, and this is commonly referred to Jesus as Christ or Messiah. Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah prophesied in the Hebrew Bible (the part of Scripture common to Christianity and Judaism, and referred to as the "Old Testament"). The foundation of Christian theology is based in the early writings of the apostles (the New Testament) which contain claims universally accepted and believed by followers of the Christian faith. These professions state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, and was resurrected from the dead by the power of God to open heaven to those who believe in Him and trust Him for the remission of their sins. The Bible maintains that Jesus Christ bodily ascended into heaven where He rules and reigns with God the Father. All Christian churches teach as it is written that Jesus will return to judge all humans, living and dead, and grant eternal life to His followers and send the wicked to hell for eternal punishment. Christ is considered the model of a sinless and perfect life, and both the revealer and physical incarnation of God. The Bible calls the message of Jesus Christ the Gospel ("good news") and hence refers to the earliest written accounts of His ministry as Gospels.

Christianity as the revealed religion was not founded in Palestine by the followers of Jesus. The disciples and apostles proclaimed the Gospel in all the world. Christianity is not an evolutionary theism. Christianity is unlike all other world's major religions. All other religions are man-made religions, Christianity is the revealed religion.

In conclusion, Western imperialism, colonialism, capitalism and hegemonism are not compatible with Christianity. It is a fallacy to think Christianity is a Western religion. This does not mean white Christians have never done anything good. In fact they had. It does not mean there have never been white missionaries who were true believers and servants of Christ. There were. It simply means Western powers have abused Christianity, disgraced themselves and dishonored the Lord Jesus, and many Western missionaries were agents of imperialists, colonialists, capitalists and hegemonists and betrayed their faith. Whether Western powers decline or not, whether Western civilization degrades or perishes or not – is not as important as whether you know Christ or not. Jesus Christ says, 

Mat 7:13, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.

No matter what race you belong to, what color of your skin, your educational background, your socio-economic class, etc. in the end there are only two groups of people in the judgment of God.

Mat 25:31-34,41,46"When the Son of man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. Before Him will be gathered all the nations, and He will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and He will place the sheep at His right hand, but the goats at the left.  Then the King will say to those at His right hand: Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.。。。 Then He will say to those at His left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;。。。 And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." Which group do you belong to? Do you belong to the sheep at the right or the goats at the left? Are you the righteous or the wicked?

I do not know Pastor Robert Jeffress. The liberal media accused him of religious bigotry because he said he does not believe Mitt Romney is a Christian. I too do not believe Romney is a Christian, because he is a Mormon. A person is not a bigot who says what is true. A Mormon is not a Christian just as a Christian is not a Mormon. A Mormon is a follower of Joseph Smith. A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ. If Mitt Romney denounces Joseph Smith and declares that he accepts and believes in Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior, then I might believe Romney is a Christian. I applaud Robert Jeffress for courage to say the truth. To speak the truth is not religious bigotry. Mormonism is not compatible with Christianity. I want you to know I do not believe any former living or current U.S. president is a Christian either. For two reasonsFirstly, you cannot be a disciple of Jesus Christ and support same-sex marriage and homosexuality. Secondly, you cannot be a Christian and an evolutionist at the same time. There is a former president who often advertises himself as a born-again Christian, but he believes in evolution. To believe in evolution is to deny the word of Jesus Christ. For Jesus says: 

Mar 10:6, “But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female.” You cannot claim to be a Christian and reject the word of Christ. I do not believe the leader of Taiwan Ma Ying-jeou is a Christian either. Mr. Ma claims to be a Christian and yet he publicly worships idols. For that reason I have warned him publicly. A Christian cannot worship God and idols. No matter how Taiwan develops its religion, it is not legitimate for a Christian to worship idols. Idolatry is a grave sin against God. If Ma is a true Christian, he has to repent and give up idols. If he wants to worship idols, then do not claim to be a Christian. Idolatry is not compatible with Christianity. The previous Taiwanese leader is also a false Christian; he professes to be a Christian only to solicit American support for his political cause and he also publicly worships idols. Ma should not follow his step in worshipping idols and claiming to be a Christian at the same time. Mr. Ma must come clean one way or another. Christianity is not a man-made religion; it is the revealed religion of Jesus Christ. 

Jhn 14:6,“Jesus said to him: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Mitt Romney is not the right leader for America, not because he is a Mormon but because he is not suitable to lead America. If Romney becomes the Republican candidate for the presidency, it will be disastrous for the Republican Party, disastrous for America, and disastrous for global economy. For Romney is a protectionist and probably a supremacist and interventionist. 

9.    Christianity never becomes lethal.

There have been many false charges against Christianity; this one is sensational, senseless and sinful. An unbeliever and pseudo-scholar wrote, When Christianity becomes lethal. This is a contradiction in terms. Ignorance has no value, false charge incurs divine judgment. This line of accusation is like those of old who said Jesus had a demon. 

Jhn 7:17-21,“If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him. Did not Moses give you the law, yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill Me? The people answered and said: You have a demon. Who is seeking to kill You? Jesus answered and said to them: I did one work, and you all marvel.” 

Imagine the Son of God whom the demons fear had a demon?

Mat 26:52,“Then Jesus said to him: Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword will perish by the sword.

Note: Jesus condemns warmongers, they will perish by the sword. Jesus condemns terrorists, they will die by the sword. Suicidal bombers killed others and themselves thinking they will go to paradise to enjoy sexual pleasure with many virgins as their wives. How ludicrous and ridiculous! What an insane and insidious religion! Christianity is never lethal because Jesus is the Savior of the world. No murderer can claim to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. A murderer is a son of the devil.

1Ti 1:15,“This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.”

The Norwegian terrorist is not a Christian, how can you know? By the authority of Jesus Christ, 

Jhn 8:44, “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” Anyone who kills his father is the devil who is the murderer from the beginning. The father of terrorists, warmongers, and murderers is the devil. I do not know whether this pseudo-scholar is a murderer or not, it is sure all who charge that Christianity is lethal are liars. The devil is the father of all liars. The devil is the father of all murderers and liars. This is the truth of Jesus Christ. To call a mass murderer a “Christian fundamentalist” is also a misnomer. Let me tell you some of Christian fundamentalists I know about such as G. Campbell Morgan, R. A. Torrey, J. C. Ryle, James Orr, Benjamin B. Warfield, H. C. G. Moule, James M. Gray, W. H. Griffith Thomas, C. I. Scofield and many noble and great Christians. Fundamentalists are basically Christians who oppose Modernists who deny Jesus is the Son of God and who deny the Bible is the infallible Word of God. Furthermore, white supremacists are not Christians; they are imperialists, colonialists, hegemonists, capitalists and warmongers. The world belongs to them and they belong to the world.

10.  Christianity is Christ’s Teaching.

Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. There cannot be Christianity without Christ. Christianity is based on the Holy Bible, the Word of God. Christianity is according to the words of Jesus Christ. Christianity is not based on tradition or the teachings of men or any church. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church. The Holy Spirit is now the sole Representative of Christ on earth.

Jhn 8:23,“And He said to them: You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.”

Jhn 18:36,“Jesus answered: My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My Kingdom is not from here.”

Eph 2:19,“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.”

Phl 3:20,“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Note: No Christian teaching inspires terrorism. 

Mat 26:52,“But Jesus said to him: Put your sword in its place, for all who take up the sword will perish by the sword.” True Christians believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world, and the Bible is the infallible Word of God. Christians are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God. Christian citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the second coming of Jesus Christ to be King of kings and Lord of lords.

On the other hand, to have sympathy with an evil religion that practices polygamy, bigamy, oppression of girls and women, beheading those converted to Christianity, teaching suicide bombers will have more than 10 virgins to be their wives in paradise for them to enjoy sexual pleasure, etc. – does not make one a Christian.

Jesus Christ is calling you:

Mat 11:28, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Jhn 7:37, On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying: If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.

Rev 22:17, And the Spirit and the bride say: "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

Friends, the salvation of God is free, it was paid by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Jesus Christ says, 

Rev 3:20, Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with Me.

Jesus Christ is knocking at the door of your heart. Will you open your heart and accept Him?  Will you come to Jesus? Come wherever you are. Come to accept and believe Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now.

马太福音2:1-2,“当 希 律 王 的 时 候,耶 稣 生 在 犹 太 的 伯 利 恒。 有 几 个 博 士 从 东 方 来 到 耶 路 撒 冷,说: 那生 下 来 作 犹 太 人 之 王 的 在 哪 里?我 们 在 东 方 看 见 他 的 星,特 来 拜 他。”

基督教的历史是拿撒勒人耶稣,历史上的耶稣开始。几乎一切知道耶稣的,来自他的使徒和门徒,把他的生活事件与他福音以及教学和使徒行传,书信的内容都记录在- 新约圣经。可以说新约是唯一真实耶稣基督的历史记录。任何人的重建耶稣是不准确和无效的,因为只有圣经由圣灵启是唯一的权威。耶稣任命所有的十二使徒都是犹太人,并在该旧约的框架,他们解释了他们所收到的感觉,所见,所闻和经验丰富的意义:他是基督,或弥赛亚,就是以色列先祖的应。由于这些应的记录,希伯文圣经(旧约)在早期基督徒没有比犹太人少神圣,履行声称与神自从创造世界他子民历史的连续性。使徒保罗,约翰,彼得和其他人,得到耶稣基督,对他的教会和世界人民启示的信息。再加使徒对耶稣在福音上选择性的记忆,由圣灵灵感使徒早期的著作和教会书信,广泛流传在整个罗马帝国的基督教社区;他们最终形成了基督教的新约,从希伯来文圣经旧约区别。


基督教作为一种宗教,它不只是 “什么是神圣的尊重”,它是
雅各书 1:27,“在 前, 诚, 妇,并 俗。

thrēskeia,这意味着宗教,对神的虔诚敬畏,值得所有国家,宗教学科拥抱; - 它发生在新约中只有4次。基督教是启示的宗教,不是自行制造的宗教,而不是人为的宗教。换句话说,你必须按照神的话崇拜神,照神的样式- 而不是你的路,人的方式,或任和方式。不沾染在希腊文是aspilos,这意味着一尘不染,脱俗,摆脱恶习,无可指责; - 它在新约中发生只有4次。在西方实行的基督教已被帝国主义,殖民主义,资本主义,霸权主义和世俗主义沾染。基督教可以概括为 提摩太前书 3:16,“大 哉, 秘, 然, 现, 义, ), 使 见, 邦, 服, 耀 里。基督教是神圣的,历史的,属灵的,超越和永恒的。根据本圣经的定义,基督教不是西方列强历史已知和今天实行的宗教。


马太福音15:3,“耶 稣 回 答 说,你 们 为 什 么 因 着 你 们 的 遗 传, 犯 神 的 诫 命 呢?”
马太福音15:6,“ 他 就 可 以 不 孝 敬 父 母。这 就 是 你 们 借 着 遗 传,废 了 神 的 诫 命。”
马可福音7:8,“ 你 们 是 离 弃 神 的 诫 命, 拘 守 人 的 遗 传。”
马可福音7:9,“又 说, 你 们 诚 然 是 废 弃 神 的 诫 命, 要 守 自 己 的 遗 传 。”
马可福音7:13,“ 这 就 是 你 们 承 接 遗 传 , 废 了 神 的 道 。 你 们 还 作 许 多 这 样 的 事 。”
歌罗西书2:8,“你 们 要 谨 慎 , 恐 怕 有 人 用 他 的 理 学 , 和 虚 空 的 妄 言, 不 照 着 基 督, 乃 照 人 间的 遗 传 , 和 世 上 的 小 学 , 就 把 你 们 掳 去。”
注解:这里所说的传在希腊文是 paradosis,这意味着给予或移交下降,这是通过口耳相传或书面形式,即由指令,历史,叙事,
戒律,信念,行为等传统, - 它在新约发生大约13次。

帖撒罗尼迦后书3:6,“弟 兄 们, 我 们 奉 主 耶 稣 基 督 的 名 吩 咐 你 们, 凡 有 弟 兄 不 按 规 矩 而 行, 不 遵守 从 我 们 所 受 的 教 训 , 就 当 远 离 他 。”


“白人的负担” 是历史上最大的欺诈行为。历史上最大的罪恶是由于 “白人的负担” 的名义下犯下的事迹。世界最大的恶事是 “白人的负担”。 “白人的负担” 是历史上最大的欺诈,因为已经与政治,军事,经济,金融和社会影响广大。根据 “白人的负担”,西方帝国主义和殖民主义和资本主义的诞生是合理的借口。帝国主义,殖民主义和资本主义所创造的罪恶是无法估量和难以计算的。即使在今天已经取代了帝国主义和殖民主义,霸权主义继续瓜分世界,并试图主宰的侵略,政治的扭臂,军事至上,法律恐怖主义和经济殖民主义,金融掠夺和大规模的诈骗等来称霸世界。

白人和白人国家的历史就是征服的战争,残暴,暴行,侵略,压迫,剥削,划分,战争史和支配权。白人由西方帝国主义,殖民主义,霸权主义和资本家实行掠夺和困扰世界。耶稣的智慧:凭着他们的果子, 你应该认他们。白人在基督教的幌子下,没有产生好的结果。
你 们 或 以 为树 好, 果 子 也 好。 树 坏, 果 子 也 坏。 因 为 看 果 子, 就 可 以 知 道 树。
因 为 没 有好 树 结 坏 果 子。 也 没 有 坏 树 结 好 果 子。 凡 树 木 看 果 子, 就 可 以 认 出 他 来。 人 不 是 从 荆 棘 上 摘 无 花果, 也 不 是 从 蒺 藜 里 摘 葡 萄。
圣 灵 所 结的 果 子, 就 是 仁 爱, 喜 乐, 和 平, 忍 耐, 恩 慈, 良 善, 信 实, 温 柔,节 制。 这 样 的 事, 没 有 律 法 禁 止。
凭 着 他 们的 果 子, 就 可 以 认 出 他 们 来。 荆 棘 上 岂 能 摘 葡 萄 呢? 蒺 藜 里 岂 能 摘 无 花 果 呢?这 样, 凡 好 树 都 结 好果 子, 惟 独 坏 树 结 坏 果 子。


没有这样一个所谓基督教的世界, 有的只是西方列强假装是基督教的国家。没有基督教国家,只有一些自称是基督徒西方国家,但在阳光下执业非基督徒活动。没有一个国家在世界上是适合或有资格 被称为一个基督教国家。有国家的人口大多是名义上的基督徒。还有很奇怪的白人认为他们是基督徒,仅仅因为他们出生是白人。

毒害政 治和政治的进程。民主是一种政治上的多数人统治的理论基础,但现实是,今天它是使人民群众以满足少数人的利益的工具。各政党为自己和特殊利益服务,但他们 不服务于人民的利益。民主的实践取得了西方少数人的精英和特权阶级。所谓的民主国家在其余为少数人的利益,权力在少数人的手中。亚伯拉罕林肯可能相信人民 的政府,民主,民治,。今天,谁可以诚实地告诉什么是人民的政府,由人民,为人民?西方的宣传机器喷涌出来的谎言,欺诈,妄想和幻觉和宣传愚弄人民群众和世界。政府和政治是黑暗的腐败和贪婪。华尔街和华盛顿都有力地证明了民主和资本主义的谬论。

生 于贪婪和贪婪繁殖。从百万美元薪水的大学校长,到2.5万亿美元掠夺性医疗保健业,2.5万亿有缺陷的法律制度,以对冲基金经理年收入数十亿美元,到所有 美国前总统成为百万富翁和大量的前委任高官成为百万富翁,到为富人削减税收,到世界最高的债务和赤字,到美元下跌,失去价值,无法控制和无数的金融诈骗和 诈骗,高失业率,巨大的收入差距,以华尔街高管奖金为十亿美元,等所有救助点的事实,资本主义对美国是坏,对世界是不好的。

资本主义是一个骗局,最大的欺诈,正如华尔街证明。 “量化宽松” 仍然意味着印钞票。 “有秩序的决议” 仍然意味着救助。你不能用真理来打扮谎言的

神的话语,资本主义与基督教不兼容。提摩太前书 6:10,“贪 根。 财, 道, 了。” 在希腊文根是rhiza这意味着事业,起源,来源,子女或后裔; - 它在新约发生大约17次。贪财是一切罪恶的起源。邪恶是贪婪的后代或后裔。在希腊文邪恶kakos这就是错误的,犯罪,罪恶,危害性,破坏性; - 它在新约发生大约51次。由资本主义对金钱的爱造成的弊端是显而易见和普遍的,而且在世界上具有普遍性。

活, 事。 边。你 事, 事。基督徒都应该寻求的东西,是在上面的事,并设置他们的思想在上面的事。唯物主义和资本主义生产和设置人们的心在地上的事。

  财。 足。 说, 你, 你。”




自称为基督教国家,是多么讽刺和邪恶。帝国主义和殖民主义的理由是臭名昭著的 “白人的负担” - 白人据称有责任将他们的文明和宗教带到其他视为落后或劣质的民族。他们甚至派出传教士到他们攻击的国家,如中国人被他们压迫,打劫,抢劫,杀死。如何在世界上你期望会相信一个压迫人的 “宗教”,造成如此多的罪恶,残暴和野蛮?事实是:基督教不是这样,不是西方帝国主义,殖民主义和资本主义为代表的宗教。这些白人至上主义者的背叛和耻辱主耶稣基督,假装是基督徒他们都不是。耶稣基督说,路加福音6:46,“你 阿,主 阿, 呢?” 西方不实践不信仰圣经中写的基督教。

攻打北京皇宫时,被他们抢劫的无数宝。 这只是给你一个整体的总和一瞥(百万项目)中国的宝藏现在在西方和日本及其他公共博物馆和私人收藏保管。这些盗窃,抢劫和中国的国宝掠夺了令人难以置信, 而且非常宝贵的。根据市场价值,这些宝物的金额至少1O,000万亿美元,不计利息,不包括非法拍卖所取得的利润,不包括无价的圆明园(避暑宫)由西方帝 国主义烧毁。

风化,多年来煽动和抢劫中国的国宝,是时候把他们返回中国。什么是属于中国要回到中国。马可福音12:17,“  说, 撒, 神。 在希腊语归给是apodidōmi,这意味着还清,履行债务,返回,恢复,回报,回归; - 它在新约发生大约48次。

计算的,和难以估量的。帝国主义和殖民主义是邪恶的工具,它们与基督教不兼容。 马太福音26:52,“  说, 吧。 刀动 刀, 下。” 帝国主义和殖民主义有血腥历史。所有动刀剑会死于刀剑之下,日本是一个好例子,在广岛和长崎投掷原子弹。帝国来帝国去。巴比伦现在在哪里?罗马帝国在哪里?大英帝国在哪里?...只要人类只要有金钱和权力,性,就会有战争。雅各书4:1-2,“你 殴, 呢? 吗?  恋, 着。 妒, 战, 得。在希腊语私欲是hēdonē,这意味着欲望,性,过度的欲望; -  它在新约发生只有5次。英语hedonism享乐主义一词来自希腊字本。  

帝国主义者和殖民主义者已使用基督教作为一种工具,来征服其他民族和国家;传教士被用来作为他们代理走狗,但基督徒必须拒绝帝国主义和殖民主义。因为帝国主义和殖民主义与基督教不兼容。帝国主义和殖民主义不知道通往和平的道路。耶稣基督说,马太福音5:9,“ 使 了, 子。”
事,与 事。”

  话, 乐。 人。 慰。 意。 睦。 神, 在。
睦, 洁。 主。”
继续前进,追求,热切追求; - 它在新约发生大约44次。和平是我们必须急切地追求。好战的国家知道如何使战争,但他们不知道如何实现和平。发动战争是容易的,创造和平是困难的。
并 且 使 人 和 平的,是 用 和 平 所 栽 种 的 义 果。
善。寻 睦,一 赶。


今天西方霸权主义追求世界霸权,以促进自由和民主为借口。以自由和民主为借口,西方列强在世界上做了这么多的弊端邪恶。他们采用 “分而治之” 的策略。他们追求的 “军事优势” 讹诈和威胁其他国家。他们让军事联盟为目标针对其他国家。

做人民的意愿?什么是民主,国家内部人士越来越获得更丰富,而绝大多数人越来越穷?西方民主是一个大骗局,因为它不服务于最广大人民的利益。圣经不支持腐败的西方政治制度。耶稣基督说,约翰福音8:32,“你 理, 由。”
的活动。霸权主义是当今西方帝国主义和殖民主义者鸦片战争的直接后裔。自从鸦片战争以来帝国主义和殖民主义,现在霸权主义已威胁,使不稳定,和独霸世界。他们甚至恶意责 中国的扩张。事实上,跟唯一的超级大国是不同的,中国没有一个海外军事基地,不在世界各地建立反导弹基地。霸权主义有毒的组合,有野心的邪恶,用欺诈的行 为和虚假谋求绝对军事优势,加上卑鄙手段来统治世界。当今世界面临有两个最大的威胁,两个国际不良行为者,即霸权主义和恐怖主义,他们既不是基督教的,并 应受到整个世界的拒绝。

士师记9:8-15,“有 一 时 树 木 要 膏 一 树 为 王, 管 理 他 们, 就 去 对 橄 榄 树 说 , 请 你 作 我 们 的 王。 橄 榄 树 回 答 说 , 我 岂 肯 止 住 供 奉 神 和 尊 重 人 的 油 , 飘 摇 在 众 树 之 上 呢 ? 树 木 对无 花 果 树 说 , 请 你 来 作 我 们 的 王 。  无 花 果 树 回 答 说 , 我 岂 肯 止 住 所 结 甜 美 的 果 子, 飘 摇 在 众 树 之 上 呢 ?树 木 对 葡 萄 树 说 , 请 你 来 作 我 们 的 王 。  葡 萄 树 回 答 说 , 我岂 肯 止 住 使 神 和 人 喜 乐 的 新 酒 , 飘 摇 在 众 树 之 上 呢 ?众 树 对 荆 棘 说 , 请 你 来 作 我 们 的 王 。  荆棘 回 答 说 , 你 们 若 诚 诚 实 实 地 膏 我 为 王 , 就 要 投 在 我 的 荫 下 。 不 然 , 愿 火 从 荆 棘 里 出 来 , 烧灭 利 巴 嫩 的 香 柏 树 。”



西方的价值观是世俗的,基督教教属灵的价值。金钱,权力和性欲是西方的价值观,违背基督教的价值观: 信仰,希望和爱。
  根。 财, 道, 了。”
提摩太后书3:2-5,“ 因 为 那 时 人 要 专 顾 自 己, 贪 爱 钱 财, 自 夸, 狂 傲,诽
谤, 违 背 父 母, 忘 恩负 义, 心 不 圣 洁, 无 亲 情, 不 解 怨, 好 说 谗 言, 不 能 自 约, 性 情 凶 暴, 不 爱 良 善, 卖 主 卖友, 任 意 妄 为, 自 高 自 大, 爱 宴 乐 不 爱 神。 有 敬 虔 的 外 貌, 却 背 了 敬 虔 的 实 意。 这 等 人 你 要 躲开。”
希伯来书13:5,“你 们 存 心 不 可 贪 爱 钱 财 。 要 以 自 己 所 有 的 为 足。 因 为 主 曾 说, 我 总 不 撇 下 你,也 不 丢 弃 你。”
没做什么有价值的, 除非用别人的钱赌博。华盛顿招致世界最大的债务和赤字。政客和官僚用纳税人的钱过奢侈的生活方式。所有前总统已经成为百万富翁,还有更多的高级官员通过购买和销售影响也已成为百万富翁。

  次, 次, 见, 神。”
约翰福音19:10,“彼 拉 多 说, 你 不 对 我 说 话 吗? 你 岂 不 知 我 有 权 柄 释 放 你, 也 有 权 柄 把 你 钉 十字 架 吗?”
因为他们有权力成为自高自大。 一个繁荣福音傲慢的传教士说:“你知道我是谁?” 一个官僚的儿子在酒后驾车杀了一个人说,“你知道我爸爸是谁?”出于同样的原因,西方儿童和成人喜欢玩枪。枪支有权力杀人。心理变态的人喜欢杀人来证明他 们有权力。出于这个原因,警方是危险的,因为他们有枪,他们可以杀死人。有时,警察比罪犯危险。你知道,罪犯会杀人,但你不指望警察杀人和滥用他的权力。所有战争贩子和恐怖分子患了权力恶症。

一 个渴望拥有权力的人是最危险,最致命的愿望。谁拥有权力可以滥用和虐待,甚至无故酷刑人。西方利用世界银行,国际货币基金组织,和世界贸易组织工作,加强 西方列强对其他国家的优势,以延续他们的统治和剥削世界的地位。西方使用北约和联盟在世界各地有军事基地和导弹基地,以达到绝对的军事优势。拥有绝对的军 事优势,西方列强可以讹诈和威胁和压迫任何国家。世界的政治,经济,财政和军事系统倾斜西方的利益。西方大众媒体传播暴力,贪婪和退化的文化。 


基督教的定义是耶稣基督,因为它是在圣经,特别是新约写的。人的解释不能定义基督教。人违背基督的教义解释是假的,异教徒。基督教是一神教信仰与其他宗教的本质有区别。它的一切是极为连接到,拿撒勒人耶稣既成的事实和工作。历史上的耶稣是真正的耶稣 -  神成为人。耶稣基督的工作主要不是医治病人或执行神迹(虽然他都);他替代人类并死在十字架上的救赎。耶稣基督来从永恒的死亡拯救罪人。


外邦人世界的部分。早期的教会在耶路撒冷由圣灵的领导主持指示门徒。耶稣基督是教会的头,他的使徒是基督的仆人教会的牧师。使徒的权威是耶稣基督所和借着圣灵领导;圣灵是地球上唯一代表耶稣基督的。教皇或任何人不是基督在人间的代表。你不能说,保罗或彼得和约翰形成了早期的教会,他们只是在神之手的工具。 哥林多前书 1:1,“奉 意, 使 罗, 。” 雅各书1:1,“作 各, 安。” 彼得后书1:1,“作 使 西 得, 神, 义,与 人。犹大书1:1,“  人, 大, 召, 爱,为 人。”  启示录1:9,“我 兄,和 难, 度, 分。 道, 证, 上。这些都是使徒的信念和意见,他们被称为是耶稣基督的仆人。

的克莱门特,安提阿的伊格内修,士麦那的波利卡普,亚历山德里亚的奥利,约翰金口,德尔图良,河马的奥古斯丁等等不是教会的父亲。耶稣基督的教会只有一个父亲是神。虚假教会父亲的想法是起源于罗马天主教会。耶稣基督说,马太福音23:9,“也 不 要 称 呼 地 上 的 人 为 父。 因 为 只 有 一 位 是 你 们 的 父, 就 是 在 天 上 的 父。” 耶稣的话是最高和最终的决定。耶稣基督说,约翰福音6:63,“叫 人 活 着 的 乃 是 灵, 肉体 是 无 益 的。 我 对 你 们 所 说 的 话, 就 是 灵, 就 是 生 命。
约翰福音20:17,“耶 稣 说,不 要 摸 我。 因 我 还 没 有 升 上 去 见 我 的 父。 你 往 我 弟 兄 那 里 去, 告 诉 他们 说, 我 要 升 上 去, 见 我 的 父,也 是 你 们 的 父。见 我 的 神,也 是 你 们 的 神。”

神是基督徒的父亲 - 基督徒是耶稣基督的追随者。
哥林多前书8:6,“ 然 而 我 们 只 有 一 位 神, 就 是 父, 万 物 都 本 于 他, 我 们 也 归 于 他。 并 有 一位 主, 就 是 耶 稣 基 督, 万 物 都 是 借 着 他 有 的, 我 们 也 是 借 着 他 有 的。”
  神, 父, 上, 中, 内。”
赐, 赐, 的。 的。 变, 儿。”

虽然目前不可能对基督教所有的全面概述,基督教曾经是而且将永远是,基督教可以简洁地说是个人与耶稣基督的关系。这篇文章不是要素描在基督教历史上的一些要点,它主要表现我们的神和救主耶稣基督。提多书2:13-14,“  等候 所 盼 望 的 福, 并 等 候 至 大 的 神, 和 我 们 救 主 耶 稣 基 督 的 荣 耀 显 现。 他 为 我 们 舍 了 自 己, 要赎 我 们 脱 离 一 切 罪 恶, 又 洁 净 我 们, 特 作 自 己 的 子 民, 热 心 为 善。” 神的话并不需要这么多人共识,就更不必大多数人的共识。圣经自言明和解释本身。约翰福音14:6,“耶稣对他说:我就是道路,真理,生命,没有人能到父,而是通过我。” 耶稣基督是神的唯一途径,这是真理。如果您认识在基督的真理,你就有生命。约翰福音17:3,“
  神, 督, 生。” 这是基督教的简单本质。如果你不知道这一点,一切你知道不要紧。永生的道并不需要人协议或肯定。

基督教是一个历史的宗教,这个意义基督教信仰是真实的,真实的人与时间和地点, - 这不是童话故事或神话。它作为人类历史上出现的两件最大事,救赎的应许和神的启示:耶稣诞生在恺撒奥古斯都统治下, 和在本丢彼拉手下受苦,在罗马历史年表有特定日期。在这方面,基督教显示其继续履行与犹太教的亲和力,因为在基督教的福音是神圣完成犹太教渐进式的启示。神管指神圣的时间段管理。犹太教原始的启示是神对摩西的神圣宣言:
说, 神, 神, 神, 神。 西 脸, 神。” 为了达到这个原始的启示基督教加断言,希伯来书1:1-3,“神 知, 祖,  世, 们, 的, 。他 耀 辉, 像, 有, 罪, 边。

注解:圣经介绍了上述明确的渐进的历史进程,和总结启示的基督教内容的简洁。 基督教以道成肉身,耶稣的生命,死亡,和复活,升天为中,耶稣基督是神的膏选者,要来的万王之王和万主之主。

所 有的基督徒都相信耶稣是神的儿子,神成为人和世界的救主,这就是通常所说的耶稣基督或弥赛亚。基督徒相信耶稣是弥赛亚在希伯来文圣经预言(基督教的圣经和 犹太教的共同组成部分,被称为 “旧约”)。基督教神学的基础是基于早期使徒的著作(新约),其中包含普遍基督教信徒接受和信仰的。这些


经有过。它仅仅意味着西方列强滥用基督教,耻辱自己和不荣耀主耶稣。许多西方传教士是帝国主义,殖民主义,霸权主义和资本家的代理人,背叛他们的信仰。不管西方列强下降或不下降,西方的文明退化或灭亡 - 最重要的你是否认基督。耶稣基督说,马太福音7:13,“你 门。 亡, 的, 的, 多。”

马太福音25:31-34,41,46,“  当 人 子 在 他 荣 耀 里 同 着 众 天 使 降 临 的 时 候, 要 坐 在 他 荣耀 的 宝 座 上。万 民 都 要 聚 集 在 他 面 前。 他 要 把 他 们 分 别 出 来, 好 像 牧 羊 的 分 别 绵 羊、 山 羊 一 般 。  把绵 羊 安 置 在 右 边 , 山 羊 在 左 边 。  于 是 王 要 向 那 右 边 的 说, 你 们 这 蒙 我 父 赐 福 的, 可来 承 受 那 创 世 以 来 为 你 们 所 预 备 的 国 。。。王 又 要 向 那 左 边 的 说 , 你 们 这 被 咒 诅 的 人 , 离 开 我 ,进 入 那 为 魔 鬼 和 他 的 使 者 所 预 备 的 永 火 里 去 。。。这 些 人 要 往 永 刑 里 去 。 那 些 义 人 要 往 永 生 里 去。”


马太福音11:28,“凡 人, 来, 使 息。”
日, 日, 说,人 了, 。”

哪, 门。 的, 去, 他, 席。”
