The claim that all religions are basically the same is an inaccurate over-generalization, but one that many people unfortunately believe. Since Christianity is a religion based on Christ and not mere teachings, discovering what makes Jesus unique reveals what distinguishes Christianity from every other religion.
In this 2-disc CD set, Dr. D. James Kennedy shows that Jesus Christ is unique, not only because of who He is but because of what He offered to the world—Himself. This powerful resource includes two full-length sermons, titled What’s So Amazing About Grace? and Christ and Christ Alone, in which Dr. Kennedy elaborates on how Jesus’ sacrifice was the ultimate gift of grace and why He was the only one who could give it.
Grace is, according to Dr. Kennedy, “undeserved favor to people who deserve absolute disfavor.” Jesus Christ, in the ultimate act of grace, bore our sins on the cross even though He was free from sin. This kind of grace is rare because God is the only one who can give it; it is unusual because it is not how our selfishly-motivated world operates; it is powerful because it transforms our lives; it is invaluable because it was purchased at the price of Christ’s blood; and, most importantly, it is a gift because it is freely given to us. And yet, God “pours it out on the most unworthy of people.”
These powerful messages show the unparalleled magnificence of Christ, and therefore the uniqueness of Christianity. In a world that more and more sees faith in Christ as unreliable and untenable, knowing what makes Jesus stand apart as the one true Savior allows us to more effectively communicate the Gospel in truth and love.
