Taste and see that the Lord is good.

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
(Psalms 34:6-8)

"Other religions do not claim to have an infallible verbal revelation from an all-knowing personal God" Greg Bahnsen - Christianity in a League of Its Own

Christianity is unique. There are some sects or cults that attempt to copy Christianity while adding their own devilish twist on what God has relieved in the holy Scriptures. Christianity alone teaches that we are justified before God by Grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. All other religions say that we either do not need salvation or that we can merit our salvation at least in part by what we do. Christianity says that we are counted righteous by faith in Christ's perfect work apart from any meritorious works of our own. That is indeed good news for people like us. Taste indeed and see that the Lord is good!
