Why be a Christian?

In this world where the search for truth is of paramount importance it would be good to deepen our answer to the present topic.  We do not and should not despise other religious convictions.  But the important thing is to defend each person’s freedom to search for the truth.  There is no need to force other people to accept our own beliefs.  What is important is to help one another in the free and important task of seeking for the ultimate truth in all things.

If you believe in Christianity, that should be left to every person’s option or decision, we can provide the help and arguments to aid his search for the truth.  Truth is not a monopoly but ought to be shared with our neighbor.  Why?

Because truly as Jesus says:  “If you make my word your home you will indeed be my disciples, you will learn the truth and the truth will make you free” (Jn. 8:31-32).  When Jesus spoke He reinforced His statements with facts, deeds and miracles, His were not just a matter of nice words but always associated with deeds and divine power.  After all, actions speak louder than words.
