The Holy BookFor many, Christianity and the Lord Jesus Christ provide direction in life. The holy book provides followers with important values to live by and a direction which above all encourages love, compassion and peace on earth. Followers do not question the vision god has for us because there is no need to question. Our path is defined by gods will and if we follow his teaching, we will live a happy and prosperous life before joining him in his Kingdom known as Heaven.
