Holy places of Christianity



Its funny how we humans believe that there is a holy place and if we visit that place we will become more holy and all our sins will be washed away. Every religion has a specific place where people go to that place every year to get their sins washed.  We have a good way of pleasing yourself.  We do something wrong, and when we feel guilty about it, we tend to go to a place and believe that if we do certain things, the sins which we committed will be gone and won’t matter. Let me just tell you that no matter what do or where you go,  unless you confess your sins and plead guilty to the lord you will not be forgiven.  To do this, you don’t need to go to any fancy holy place. You can do that wherever you are.


There may be some significant places which may be considered as holy because Jesus Christ and his disciples would have been in that area or preached in that place. But if you are a Christian then you need to understand that you are the temple of God.  Thus you need to keep your heart clean, and no other place is more holy than where you are right now.  Jesus preaches to us that we are the temple of God and only when we keep our hearts clean we can be a true follower of Jesus Christ.

Holy Places

Many people believe that Christianity is a religion, it may be classified as a religion, but it is more of a beautiful relationship with God himself.  You worship him as a God, and at the same time, he can be your best friend. There is nothing you need to be afraid of since he is always by your side.

When God is always on your side why do you have to go in search of God? Unlike many religion where people believe that God is in a holy place and you need to go there to visit him, Christians believe that God is omnipotent. God is everywhere,  he everywhere you go and come.

Previously in the Old Testament days before the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, things were very different. God was considered very holy, and no one could enter the holy place without shedding blood to cover their sins. An animal was sacrificed to cover the sins of people. It is believed that only blood can cleanse your sins, so an animal had to be sacrificed for your sins to be cleansed.  But in the New Testament, God himself came to the earth in the form of a man, but without any sin, he took upon all our sins on him and died on the cross for you and me;

We can stand peacefully today and say that we have been cleaned by the blood of Jesus Christ and so we do not have to sacrifice any animals or go to any holy places to get our sins cleansed. Read More
