How do christians achieve their purpose?
Christians can become closer to God through many ways; one of the traditional practices in Christianity is Baptism; this ritual varies in different branches of the religion but essentially requires immersion of the body in water. The importance of this ritual is that it is believed to wash away original sin and with it, the temptation towards following the wrong path from Christians.

But if we do decide to give into the temptation of evil and sin, then we will no longer be considered good until we try to reconcile with God. As a result of Adam and Eve’s first encounter with sin,
