What is Christianity?

I have been thinking about all that I owe to the late John Stott, pictured here in a photo by John Yates taken at The Hookses, near Dale in Pembrokeshire. I'm still not ready to put my thoughts into a blog post. I will, but not yet.

Meanwhile, here is his answer to my question - what is Christianity?  
"Christianity is not primarily a theological system, an ethical system, a ritual system, a social system or an ecclesiastical system - it is a person: it's Jesus Christ, and to be a Christian is to know Him and to follow Him and believe in Him."
Thank you 'Uncle John'.

For some tributes to him see here (a special section of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity website) among many other places.
