Most people celebrate in the world remember the birth of Jesus every year. Bible scholars are of the view that the Romans picked this date to coincide with their festivals in December and it is not the actual time for Christs birth.
Though Christ was born as a man; he was fully God. Jesus came with a definite goal. Man had soiled his relationship with God when he sinned willingly in Eden, but God was seeking a way of blotting out the sins of humanity. Earlier man had to shed the blood of goat and sheep to obtain forgiveness. God had a plan to wipe away the sins of man completely. Though he has one son, God freely gave him up to die on behalf of humanity. One must acknowledge that he is a sinner. Thus, one must rely on Jesus to cleanse his sins and present him before God as people dont have the ability to cleanse their sins through their actions. Christians become sons of the highest God when they are forgiven sins through the blood of Christ.
Unlike Judaism where one has to go through priests to talk to God, Christianity suggests that you can have a personal relationship with God. Christians believe that when they go through hard times, God uses it to refine their character. Believers in Christian faith are also exhorted to love one another and to forgive each other freely.

It has also been noted that frequent churchgoers have other physical and mental benefits. People have come up with assemblies that have different doctrines that guide their teaching.
Jesus appointed twelve disciples who followed him everywhere he went. Judas was a corrupt disciple of Jesus. Due to his love of money, he conspired with the Jewish leaders and betrayed Jesus for thirty shekels of silver. Jews came about with false accusations which led to the crucifixion of Jesus.
In the next few days after the ascension of Jesus to heaven, Christians were now heavily persecuted. Christians continued becoming more in numbers even though they were mistreated. Just like early days of Christianity believers are even now going through persecution in several parts of the globe on account of their faith. Despite the intense suffering caused by those who want to suppress Christianity in China, believers have continued to learn more about Jesus Christ and have thereby increased tremendously. Christians in China are many that all the believers found in European nations.
