The Doctor: Christianity is Christ

‘Christianity is Christ.’  He is central, He is vital, He is all in all.  It does not matter how good a life may be, how moral it may appear to be, if it is not entirely dependent upon the Lord Jesus Christ and what He has done, it is not Christianity.  It may be morality, it may be some other religion, but it is not Christianity.  You can have religion without Christianity; you may have morality without Christianity; but the thing that makes Christianity Christian is the centrality, is the cruciality of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Hence, any claim that is made, if it does not directly relate everything to Him, and give the glory to Him, proves at once that it is not Christian at all. … If your position is not entirely dependent upon this blessed Person it is not Christianity at all; it is a sham, it is counterfeit.  – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 6, p. 35
