Excerpt from Term Paper :
The aim of Christian faith is not to reject the truth of the universe or our individual characteristics, like some religions give, but to gratify our genuine yearnings. Christian faith gives an extremely reasonable contentment, as it encompasses the most ideal manner and justifies our encounter of the world and our own feelings of being. Christian belief accords importance to reason and, of course has a justification for reason. Among the other religions, Christian faith is the most sensible, and thus it can be proposed as the most advanced.
A question might be posed that if God has the supreme power as per Christianity, then what is the reason behind the Almighty unable to resolve the evils of the universe completely. Christianity considers that the Almighty was not behind the making of this world in this collapsing state of affairs or with immorality and pain. He made it entirely good and subsequently human beings created immorality and crime into the universe due to his own blunder. This is not to declare that all illness and wounds is linked to specific immorality perpetrated, but that had we not committed any immoral acts we will not experience any suffering. Whereas man possesses a determination and is to be blamed for immorality, the Almighty is in full command of the situation and not anything can occur outside His everlasting objectives. However, in case the Almighty had the option of prohibiting immorality, but did not, it is usually held in that case that the Almighty do not adore everybody. However, this opposition stands on a baseless presumption -the presumption that an adoring will not have incorporated immorality in His plan to exalt and elevate Himself. It appears that almighty had holy and valid causes for permitting immorality.
A pious and virtuous Almighty would accord endless importance on His own value - on the contrary He will not be completely weighing what is absolutely precious, that would be adulation. It appears that as though if the Almighty permitted immorality to completely exhibit the enormity of His supremacy in defeating it, the sanctity of His nature in evaluating it, and the acumen of His plan in producing excellence out of that. The character of the Almighty glows in conquering immorality and evaluating it. In this act, the splendor of the Almighty is revealed very much and therefore His community is very much benefited. Christian religion exhibits an Almighty who not just resolutely handled immorality and offence, not like "the Almighty" of any other faith, rather who unleashed a superior good from the short-term incidence of immorality in the world.
Christianity believes that the problems of the world, the evils present in the world can merely be explained by the action of the Almighty, not by our self-action. Moreover, the Almighty has settled it in an extremely breathtaking manner. He came in flesh and blood in the form of Christ to take the responsibility of punishment of our immoral acts by meeting crucification. The Christian religious belief considers that Almighty who has made Him appear in the form of Jesus has become concerned in our torments and agony. Moreover, it is only Him who has unfalteringly tackled immorality. He assumed the form of a human being and experienced the most terrible anguish and death. While crucifying he surmounted death, immorality and offence. This demonstrates his heroic love, empathy and strength. Did any founders of other religions give up their life for our offences? No one of these founders ever did this. Given to understand in a different manger, is it not relatively surprising that not even one of the creators of a belief system ever declared and gave evidence that he answered the dilemmas of human offence, immorality and death, the most basic dilemmas of individuals among all others?
It was only Christ who disentangled the dilemma of immorality and surmounted death, in such a reasonable manner; only Christ is the path to deliverance and the path to attain God and perpetual life. Besides, Jesus arrived in this World not just to emerge as a form of the Almighty to show his nature, and make us learn his truth, but even to reunite us to the Almighty. Since, this was the primary cause of his descending on this world, the Bible accord far more interest to the death and revivification of Christ compared to what they do regarding the way of his arriving in this Universe or the magnificent living that he led. The compassion of God revealed in such a forceful manner in the surrender of Christ to the Jews on the cross, which created pardoning a probability. At this point, the distinctive characteristic of Christian religion becomes most intelligible. Other religious beliefs either refute the necessity for mercy or put forth insufficient thought to how it might be attained.
It is only through forgiving one another, by forgiving our enemies that the problems of the world can be solved. The terrorist activities and the infightings going on in many parts of the world can only be solved by the spread of the Christian belief of forgiveness. Christian religion showers the quality of love to the repentant offender. It bestows the complimentary compassion of the Almighty by Christ, and forgives and receiving even to the abandoned. Christianity unfurls pleasure encompassing its way. Real pleasure can only be created in an agreement with Almighty in Christ, who proclaimed him to be a kind God, and still a rescuer, still, and still the defender of everybody who repose faith in Christ, truthful and only to pardon us our offences, and to purify us from wickedness.
To conclude, the reality that Christianity appropriately enlightens regarding the truth of our being compared to another religion, reasons out, to some extent, that Christian religion is the rightful belief system.
