Early Christian Doctrines – The Enlightenment of Jesus Christ
The Enlightenment of Jesus Christ was a turning point in religious history when He began the greatest dispensation ever known to mankind. He opened the door of God’s throne and declared that He is God and the ruler of Heaven and earth. He dispelled the myths which darkened His followers’ view of Him and brought them closer to the One who does indeed rule all things. This article covers the key historical moments during which the religion of Jesus Christ began to prosper.
The enlightenment began with the coming into being of the messiah or Jesus Christ. Known as the “Master of the Faith,” He came to teach His Disciples the true meaning of life, suffering, and happiness. The teachings of Jesus Christ changed the course of religion from paganism to monotheism, as taught by the father down to his descendants.
During the time of the last Christian king, Constantine converted from a pagan religious to a Roman Catholic
At the Council of Nicea, in 324 AD, Constantine made official what had been going on in Jerusalem for many centuries. The council legalized the crucifixion of Jesus and pronounced Him as the saviour of men. With this new confidence in his divinity, a new zeal for religious movements swept through the world.
The first manifestation of the enlightenment of Jesus Christ occurred at the synagogues of Nazareth in the year three. Having felt the presence of God, He began to preach against sin and the kingdom of the world. The followers of Christ could not believe in His words at the time, for they knew that God had raised Him from the dead. Many, however, continued to disbelieve, even after watching the risen Jesus. It was only when death approached that they received the realization that their sins had been done. The power of the Holy Spirit thus began to take possession of Jesus, and the Christian religion was reborn as Christianity.
The next major development concerning the life of Jesus Christ occurred with the birth of His son, Jesus Christ. As the son of God, it was fitting that His teachings be divine. This was further reinforced by the fact that the heavenly powers were around to support him. After receiving the baptism of His father, Jesus returned to earth to preach the gospel to people, claiming his role as the Son of God. From this point on, the Christian religion was built upon the teachings of Jesus Christ, with the belief that he alone is the Lord, able to redeem mankind from sin.
The Enlightenment also included a strong opposition to ritualistic practices
The followers of Jesus Christ came to detest the rites associated with the past religions, which they felt were a waste of time and caused excessive pain and suffering. In order to eliminate these rites, the followers of Jesus Christ introduced what came to be known as the worship of God. Worship of God involved reverence of God as a power associated with heaven and told of his ability to save mankind from sin. The main elements of this worship are what are known as angels, saints, demons, and God himself.
Another very important development regarding the religious history of early Christianity relates to the idea of a universal religion, which is different from monotheism. Monotheism regards one God as being the supreme authority over all others. The enlightenment of Jesus Christ replaced the idea of a single god with that of a global god. The global aspect of a universal religion allows for a better understanding of how god’s love can be expressed through every individual. This concept was especially important to the early Christians, who had been instructed not to judge or speak negatively of fellow Christians.
The enlightenment of Jesus Christ led to the preaching of the Sermon on the Mount, one of the most famous sermons in the history of Christianity. It emphasizes the idea that we are saved by faith in God alone, without any works. This teaching was a key step towards the doctrine of the Reformation, when reformed Christians began to argue against islam and Christianity. Today there are countless debates regarding islamic matters, such as women should be allowed to attend Muslim mosques, or not.
