    Christian distinctives

    This thread is to outline Christian distinctives, which do not seem to appear in other religions, with the exception perhaps of Judaism, in some instances.

    ● Grace - God giving us what we do not deserve, in other religions grace is earned
    ● Mercy - God not giving us what we do deserve
    ● Love - God is love, this is not a principle in other religions
    ● Abba Father - Being in God's family, having him in a relationship as Father
    ● Bride of Christ - Marriage being a picture of our relationship to Christ
    ● Burden bearer - God bearing our burdens
    ● Not tasting death - Death has lost its sting

    These are some that come to mind...

    Blessings,
    Lee

    Prophet, High priest and King of kings - the three fundamental offices essential to the Scriptural roles and offices of Jesus Christ, who is of course, God's promised Messiah.

    Along the lines of Jesus as a prophet, fulfilled prophecy in the Bible comes to mind. Whole books of prophecy!

    "Declare and set forth your case;
    Indeed, let them consult together.
    Who has announced this from of old?
    Who has long since declared it?
    Is it not I, the LORD?
    And there is no other God besides Me,
    A righteous God and a Savior;
    There is none except Me." (Isa. 45:21)

    Blessings,
    Lee
