The ZigZag Café

We will be convening here at the ZigZag café, Suisse, on Thursdays for conversation and dialogue. I invite you to stop by every Thursday for the question of the day. Your thoughts and participation are most welcome. Pull up a stool, avec un café, un thé, ou un chocolat chaud, et un croissant, and join in here on Thursday at the ZZ café.

For today:

What are some of the claims in Christianity that distinguish it from religions?

Most religions say something like: "Do all these good things, and you will be saved by god". Christianity says something like: "God already saved you, now go and do these good things". The difference is Grace. God's unconditional, unmerited love for his messy children.

PO, Thanks. Excellent way of putting it. Grace is indeed amazing and one of the marked differences between Christianity and religion.
