What Makes Christianity Unique from Other Religions?

Episode 467 Show Notes 

From the Show

Well, Christianity is not just another religion like all the other religions of the world. Christianity is distinct in that it is the truth, the revelation of God to humanity through his Son, God’s Son Jesus Christ. Paul says very clearly even though there are so-called idols or gods in the world, they don’t really exist. They’re not real.

Questions in this Episode

1. Jehovah’s Witnesses have a different kind of Bible. So how can you even have a discussion on an issue with a person, when you are reading the word, but their Bible doesn’t even say the same thing as your Bible? It is like you are at a dead-end or something. 

2. I have a question regarding the Old Testament and hell. I know that hell is taught in the Old Testament, but does this mean that every single person that lived prior to Jesus who was not a part of the old covenant is in hell? There seems to be so many people that lived prior to Jesus who were not part of Israel, and it can make hell hard to stomach. Any help?

3. Is Christianity a religion just like any other?

4. I accepted Jesus Christ when I was a 9-year-old kid. I believed I was forgiven, but then I went through a long period of doubt. I accepted him again at 17. In my mid-20’s, I accepted him again. When I was 30, I accepted him again. But then I would doubt. I don't doubt that Jesus is God or that he died for me or that I'm a sinner or that I asked for forgiveness, I just wonder if God did forgive me and when he did forgive me? I struggle with the passage that says perfect love casts out all fear. Well, I fear all the time, and I fear that I didn't have enough trust when I accepted Christ.
