What Christianity Is About

Christianity is fundamentally about forgiveness.
We all have those “Aha!” moments, when it’s like someone switches on a light in our brains, and suddenly we get it! I remember it was like that when I suddenly understood how long division worked at school!
But there’s another, more recent “aha” moment that I want to tell you about. For most of my life, I never really got what Christianity was about.
Now I know that Christianity isn’t basically about something to believe in, or rules for living, or about going to church, and all those kinds of things. Good stuff, maybe, but it’s not the main game.
Now I get it. Now I know that Christianity is fundamentally about forgiveness.
The right way to see this is to understand that God is the First Forgiver, and you are always the one who needs it most.
And if a Christian doesn’t forgive, they need to reconsider their name. Remember: Forgiveness. It’s what being a Christian is all about.
