Jesus to me is much more than just the person whom I worship on Sundays. Jesus to me is a best friend. He is someone that I go to when I am sad, happy, mad, confused, or hurt. He is a close friend to me that goes beyond Sunday masses and theology class. For an example, I pray to Jesus outside of school and masses. He is someone that I am constantly talking to; whether it is for forgiveness or help. Talking to Jesus is my time to securely express my feelings out, knowing that He cannot tell anyone.
For Kierkegaard’s opinion, he thinks it is more truth for “become a Christian” rather than “be a Christian”. Because in Kierkegaard’s era, it is easy to be a Christian. Just born and grow up in a certain society and accept baptism, go to the church. Because in 19th century, almost everyone born in a such environment that the whole society is Christian. Though, Kierkegaard thinks totally being a real Christian is impossible in a person’s life. It seems like a task that never be completed. The essence of “become a Christian” means renewing the relationship with God in every moment, at the same time, required their lives in pious way in every moment try to achieve their goal that being a Christian.
Christianity has proven to be very essential in my life. 1. it has provided a sense of protection for me. I first experienced this as a child while while growing up in a household without a father figure.

This standard has allowed me to hold myself accountable in situations where I otherwise would have been weak. Finally 3. it gives me the assurance of life after death. Through teachings of my grandmother I look forward to the blessed return of Jesus Christ at the last trumpet sound. For the Lord himself will decend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and
People are not committed followers of Christ just because they study the Bible. That is only part of the process. The Great Commission tells us to make disciples, baptize them, and teach them to obey (Matthew 28:16). The Great Commandment tells us to love God and others. (Matthew 22).

Christianity is one of the most influential religions on both ancient and modern Western society, with the religion based on the teachings of the prophet Jesus Christ who lived approximately between the years of 5 BC and 33 AD. It is claimed that Christ was the son of God whose spirit was embodied and sent to Earth as a human being to bring peace and prosperity to the less fortunate, and absolve the world of its sin. Jesus preached a doctrine of a supreme monotheistic god who ruled over the universe, as well as ethics and morals especially centred on the concept of faith and forgiveness.

Having a Christian worldview should not limit me from having a normal conversation or even engage with someone who differs from my beliefs. The very idea irritates me for I have encountered closed-minded people who will only speak and interact with who ever relates to their idealism, perhaps, a close-minded one. Further, when it comes to the future and type of work I would like to do, I would want for God to open doors in places where there is people that do not have a relationship with Him, no matter how bad it is. Perhaps, consequently my relationship and testimony would ignite a desire to have a relationship with God.

For instance, a person who steals another person’s property or a person who worships other gods apart from the Almighty God contravenes Christian teachings. Therefore, to be a Christian, a person should try to follow the Ten Commandments.
