The one thing that is unique about Christianity

During a conference on comparative religions, experts from around the world debated what, if anything, was unique to Christianity. They began eliminating possibilities and the debate went on until C.S. Lewis, the famous Cambridge professor of English Literature, joined the discussion. ‘You want to know what’s unique about Christianity?’ Lewis asked, ‘That’s easy. It’s grace – God’s unconditional love.’ After some discussion, the delegates had to agree. The notion of God’s love coming to us free of charge, no strings attached, seems to go against every instinct of humanity. The Buddhist eight-fold path, the Hindu doctrine of Karma, the Jewish covenant, and Muslim code of law—each of these offers a way to earn God’s approval. Only in Christianity is God’s love given unconditionally.
