Son, and Holy Spirit
A Short Course on Christianity
by Rev. Fr. Joseph T. Hilinski
Interfaith Director, The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland
Christianity faces great challenges as it begins its third millennium of life in the world. Its divisions are still very real although those churches that have accepted ecumenism have worked to overcome those divisions and to act more and more as one body of Christ in the world.
Christianity is faced with the great multiplicity of religions-with some it shares many aspirations and values with those same and still others it finds itself with great differences. And yet the Christian community is united in offering to the world this witness:
|That the God, who has created this world, loves it and everyone in it. |
| That the human race needs to recognize it dignity as one family, stemming from the creation of this loving God and destined for eternal life in Jesus Christ, won for us on the Cross. |
| That our effort of collaboration for the meeting of human needs is a demand on every human being. We need to recognize each human being as having a dignity that comes from God and thereby human life is sacred, from beginning to end. |
The message of Jesus Christ is called Gospel in our tradition. Gospel is the old English for Good News. Christianity proclaims the Good News, works to be Good News, and invites all to share and be part of God's Good News for his world.
