The fight that Jesus fought was a fight for freedom from sin and death, but this can be opened to pinpoint areas in a person’s life that has had them in bondage. People in religious bondage do not need psychology, humanistic and religious trappings which are associated with teachings other than Christ. The Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Atheists are looking towards the Christians to see the difference.
Christians Victory, liberty and freedom should be the exultation of a Born-again Christian. Dancing and singing before the Lord should be the example and demonstration that Christians portray to the lost and dying world. Christians have been set free from the bondage of sin and death by the grace and love of a wonderful God through the Divine sacrifice on the cross of Golgotha for the atonement of our sins. Neither death nor sin can hold the Christian down anymore now that he or she has been set free. It is through this new found transformation that all Christians can walk in this life with their heads held high with a smile on their faces. Christians look forward to the return of Christ waiting for the resurrection, when they will receive a new house (body) and new clothes, our new resurrected body of greatness and permanence. As Christians we neither struggle to hold on to life at all costs, nor do we pine to die. To us, both positions are irrelevant. It is a positive outlook on eternity to adhere to now; therefore we can live to the full knowing of our destination. Our place of judgment is this side of the resurrection and it is our decision to accept salvation now, so we will receive a reward and not a penalty.
Muslims The followers of Allah anticipate a resurrection, as Christians do and it is at that time they will be judged for good or bad done in this life. So beyond the resurrection, for the devout Muslim, there exists a horrible literal hell, and a remarkable sensual paradise. For the Muslims, paradise has nothing to offer higher than any wealth a Muslim male may already enjoy now. Some are violent and aggressive about the Islamization of people.
Islamization is the Muslims’ efforts to permeate throughout the whole world in an effort to breed and out-populate any nation over time, with a view to implementing their Sharia laws, and taking away the right of Christians to worship (Revelation 16:14) or for others the right not to have any belief.
Buddhists The Buddhists do not believe in a god. They believe that the belief in a god comes from fear and that each individual has the power to change himself. They follow the doctrines of reincarnation and karma, which means liberation on a journey of death and rebirth toward Nirvana, which literally means extinction. This is to say that they believe in the removal from ones makeup, the desires, memories and habits of the flesh and as they do not believe that a person has a soul or spirit, the cycle ends one day in nothingness ending suffering through enlightenment.
Hindus Hindus believe in a one, all-pervasive Supreme Being and the individuals karma, which means he or she can create his or her own destiny through the law of cause and effect. Hindus seek “nirvana”, through the process of re-incarnation where the believers come into a state of nothingness, becoming absorbed into the supreme impersonal Soul of the Universe. Re-incarnation is a long process of trans-migration of the soul to get to a Transcendent Absolute. The believer through his or her efforts achieves this state by personal discipline, good conduct, purification, pilgrimage, self-inquiry, meditation and surrender to a Supreme Being (god). There is no promise of moving forward and therefore they have very strong pessimistic view of eternity, which is full of fear and accountability.
Atheists Atheists do not believe in life after death and they say that death is the end and they base this on their rational thinking. Atheists have as their goal the cemetery; their destiny is death. They hope only for dissolution of the flesh and extinction of consciousness, a total annihilation. This is a strong statement of faith.
Christians should proclaim the Gospel of Jesus, as all need to find freedom that Jesus Christ presented. We need to get away from humanistic, sociological and psychological approaches which have gripped mankind throughout the ages and some parts of the Church. Preach Jesus, the Cross, the atoning blood, and repentance.
