Christian beliefs are teachings of Jesus Christ the incarnate Word of God.
Jesus is the Son of the Living God. He came to earth, was crucified, died and was buried. The Word tells us that if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God has raised Him from the dead, we will be saved. Romans 10:9
The person of Jesus Christ is 'Truth' itself.
Jesus brought to earth the Kingdom of God. He taught us through His words and His life's example what the Kingdom of God was all about. He showed us how to live, talk, and even how to think to become the very best we can be.
Basic Christian beliefs are simple and can be found written plainly in the Bible.
They are also profound. Beliefs
deepen as you grow in your Christian faith and will change you from the inside out.The Holy Spirit is given to us to lead us into all truth which implies that we will grow in our understanding and beliefs.
Whatever you really believe in your heart will profoundly effect your whole life, body, soul, and spirit. A Christian is a person who believes and follows Jesus Christ. A Christian is someone whose heart willingly strives to pattern their behavior to reflect Jesus. A Christian is someone who desires to be a "Christ one".
And the Fruit of the Holy Spirit will be manifest in their life.
But Christian Doctrines are different in that they are subject to certain philosophies or schools of thought. They are mans' interpretations of Christian beliefs. They can and should be good but because Man can make mistakes they cannot be considered absolute 'Truth itself'. Church doctrines can change as the Holy Spirit reveals more Truth, more of the word to the believer.
Absolute Truth is Jesus. Embrace Truth seek after it and you will find Him.
When you were a child you may have believed something you were told was the truth but with maturity you realized that it was not true. (i.e., the tooth fairy) It may have been hard to take at first but knowing the truth is better that believing a lie. When it comes to believing false doctrines it's really hard to take.
But there is GREAT Freedom on the other side where truth is. Don't be afraid of the Truth for the Truth is Jesus. As you grow, keep yourself open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He will always guide you with Scripture.
Sanctification is a growing process and if you are willing God will mold you and shape you as the potter does with the clay. God will correct our doctrines if need be as we grow in Faith and His Grace.
Throughout the History
of Christianity there have been those who have been over zealous for
doctrine while being mislead with teachings that were not of God.
Misunderstanding and out of context Bible Scriptures have lead to abominations of so
called Holy Wars, Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition and even fights
among different Church denominations.These were not the will of God but the will of men.
As you draw closer and closer to God more revelations of Christian beliefs can be revealed as the Holy Spirit leads. But the Holy Spirit will Always agree with the written Word and Scripture will accompany revelation.
Time spent with God opens your understanding and doctrinal perception of Christian beliefs will deepen. Your understanding can expand with maturity from glory to glory as the Lord reveals them to you.
The Word of God is not like any ordinary book that you just comprehend as you read. There are mysteries in Bible verses must be revealed by the Spirit of God – The Holy Spirit. But the most simplest among us can understand the deep things of God as God chooses to whom He will reveal them.
3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. KJV
