Whether you are European, African, Asian, Latino, black, white, brown, red, yellow, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant, Catholic, atheist, agnostic, rich, poor, weak, strong, felon, gay, straight, single, married, divorced, literate, or illiterate, you are invited. Christianity is the biggest of the big tents.
No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done, no matter where you live, Jesus would love for you to become his follower. Many millions do just that every year. No religion is more inclusive than Christianity.
That’s because all other religions are based on performance. In other words, you have to do something in order to make God happy—or avoid his wrath. They are “exclusive.”
But Christianity is not based on performance. In fact, it’s actually based on making an admission that we are “not” good enough – that we can’t perform. And it’s on just that point – that we can’t “earn” our way in – that makes Christianity the most “inclusive” religion of all. Christianity is for everyone—which may help explain why the Christian faith looks so messy and attracts so many kooks: We'll take the ones the other religions don't want.
