Simply claiming to believe in the Christian faith does not make a person is a Christian. Contrary to the belief of Jews being born Jews, a peoplehood, a person is not born a Christian, but sometime after their birth they must be born-again into the spirit of Christ. Specifically, to become a Christian a person must believe in the doctrines depicted by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, follow God's plan of salvation by asking with their mouth to be forgiven of their sins, and subsequently continue to obey all of God's laws. Remaining to be a Christian requires a conscious daily choice, it is not a one time commitment.
On the other hand, Jews consider themselves a part of a peoplehood, coming from the tribe of Judah. One is said to be born a Jew not converted to one, although a person can accept and practice Judaism. Jews believe salvation is attained by their obedience to God's laws.
Christians and Jews have a great deal in common regarding their beliefs and religious background. Jews who are of the Jewish faith (Judaism)live and worship according to the Old Testament and the Talmud. Christians, wheather of Gentile or Jewish descendants, live under the Grace of God and worship according to both the Old and New Testaments. Gentiles were grafted into God's elect through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, a Jew.
The World's Most Influential man is Jesus Christ. Jesus stands at the center of human history. This Jew from Galilee changed society, the world's justice system, and the concept of time. During His time on earth men were drawn to Him. He healed the sick and blind, ministered to the sinner, and taught mankind to love one another. Then, He gave up His life on the cross as a sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, and for those who accept Him as their personal savior He gives eternal life.
The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ were the most powerful events ever known to mankind. There impact changed the entire world and man's destiny forever!
