The Purpose of Christians

Whenever you here the word “Christianity” or anything related to that on TV, there are mixed feelings. Some say that Christians are all good. Some say they are all bad. And some say we should change our ways. This is what a Christian’s purpose is (from my perspective).

As Christians, we are supposed to love. This concept is tainted a little bit. Some bad apples do spoil the bunch. There are some radicals who stand on the streets, damning everyone who does not meet a certain criteria of specific person or a specific church. Properly, we are to do the exact opposite. We are supposed to be a loving people who do not intimidate or agitate anyone because they don’t believe. And in doing so, hopefully we can convert them instead of sending the message that they are not wanted.

Christianity is also meant to be spread. So far, the religion itself has made a great progress in the past 2,000 years. But it needs to spread a little bit further. This does not only mean in different countries (while there is still much work to be done in that area). This also means removing the plank out of our own eye, by spreading the word through the entire country. Sadly, not everyone will be saved. But there needs to be as many people saved as possible.

Finally, Christians are to be peace-keepers. In the Bible, it says to turn the other cheek when someone strikes us. And that is exactly what we are supposed to do. We need to not start so many fights, no less partake in them. It can also mean by preventing as many fights as possible  by any means.

I am not the perfect Christian. No one is. It is impossible to be perfect in faith. But this is what I see as the purpose of Christianity.
