It started when a nice guy hundreds of years ago pretty much said, "Hey guys, maybe we shouldn't be assholes to eachother." For this, he was nailed to a tree.
However, everyone didn't seem to be able to understand "Be nice" so they made up a ton of reasons why he said this.
Eventually this was spun out of hand and one question led to another.
Eventually it started being used to give reason to biggotry. Such as hatred twords gays. When the real reason that these christians hate gays is simply because they are different from them.
It was mainly used to squeeze money from followers (similar to Sceintology). And to gain more followers the christians decided to smear other religons, like Saitanism, to have more followers and more money.
They did this by naming the guy they blamed everything on Saitan, putting their nonsense holidays on the same days as other holidays, and even taking over the holidays of other religons (like Christmas).
Today it is used for, the mental controll of the population of America, stealing money from it's followers, making hate laws (no gay rights), making yourself feel better than everyone else because you belive the story about the cosmic jewish zombie who is his own father, etc...
There are too many christians on the interent.
"No, I'm pretty sure it was Christianity that started WWII."
The largest religion in the world. Christianity contains many sects, and it teaches that there is only one God, and that his is Jesus Christ who's people were the Jews and he was sent to die on the cross to forgive mankind’s sins, so that we may go to heaven by believing in him. Teaches to love your enemy and seek peace.
Christianity is the largest religion in the world. It teaches that Jesus Christ is the son of God and died for our sins on the cross and came back up from the grave to ascend into Heaven. We need only believe in Jesus and his sacrifice to get to Heaven, as it is the one true way. Teaches to love your enemy and seek peace.
A beautiful religion based off of peace, equality, trust and love. Originally a sect of Judaism, Christianity believes in most things Judaism does, except that Christianity follows the concept that Jesus Christ is the divine son of God. Followers of Christianity also tend to have a very personal relationship with God, who is seen as a forgiving and loving God. The place of worship for those who follow Christianity is known as a church.
The follower of Christianity went to pray at church.
A religion which, according to its holy book, the bible, began over 2000 years ago.
It has for a long time been the most commonly followed religion in the world, mostly in the west and parts of Africa.
Recently, there has been a decline in followers, mostly in the west, due to a lot of anti-Christian material in the media - for example, controversies surrounding homosexuality, and in the US, the Westboro Baptist Church.
The truth is, even as a non-Christian, I know that in a nutshell, the bible teaches pretty much nothing more than to love one another and to have a fulfilling life... contrary to what a lot of people say; it being nothing but made up gibberish. True, most of the stories in the bible are made up, but those stories are used mainly to interpret many unanimous Christian beliefs.
Sadly, many modern Christians face a lot of prejudice due to what the media portrays them to be. Most Christians just want to live a fulfilling life and don't wish to impede their beliefs on others.
I don't follow Christianity, but at least it isn't as bad as Islam.
if you want to do it then its a sin.
Nick sat down and watched tv
thats christianity for you
Christianity is a monotheisic religion that originated from Judaism. There are many denomiations of Christianity and every one of them is different. You have the up-tight Baptists, The guilt-ridden Catholics, the laid-back Methodists, and the very loose Episcopals (my denomiation). It is pretty ignorant to say that all Christians are close-minded and/or hateful. This is untrue for true christians are accepting and try to be loving like Christ.
Examples of the denominations of christianity:
Baptist Prayer-"Lord Almighty, I have sinned badly and please spare me from eternal damnation!"
Catholic Prayer-"Our Mother of Perpetual Sorrow, I am a terrible sinful person, I know i deserve to burn for stealing my neighbor's garden gnome, Please Forgive Me!"
Methodist Prayer-"Well, Let's see here, I sinned pretty bad so how about we just forget about it and star off new."
Episcopal Prayer-"Oh yeah, I'm sorry i passed out on the street after winning the tequila contest. Also, I think I should add a MY BAD for punching George in my drunken rage but George was annoying the hell out of me"
The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree...
Person1: I attend a pseudocannibalistic ritual every Sunday.
Person2: You must be a follower of Christianity.
Person1: You are correct.
One of the three religions that involves the worship of God, along with judaism and islam (judaism refers to God as "Yahweh", and islam refers to God as "Allah").
Christianity revolves around the belief of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Christianity also has different branches, including catholicism (popularly-believed to be a radical and strict form of christianity), lutheran (said to be christianity for blacks), protestant, and presbyterian.
Unfortunately, christianity has been perverted by the world to be an awful religion based around occult-relations....this is because there are stupid people who claim to do bad things in God's name (see Al Qaeda & KKK; the KKK discriminates in the name of christianity).
Christianity revolves around love for everything, including fellow human beings. Unfortunately, we as human beings are doomed to hate one another because of our nature. Nevertheless, there are those who try to follow christianity strictly, so much that they don't say words like "damn" or "fuck" (christianity has been popularized as a personality where people don't swear).
On a sidenote, the dominant religion now is a battle between christianity and islam. Many are converting to islam for countless reasons; it is apparently a fascinating religion, albeit strict (and you're forbidden to eat pork).
"Christianity is misunderstood now; christianity is, by nature, a greatly respectable religion."
"Do unto others as they would love to have done unto you."
"Love your enemies....for if you love only those who love you, where is the reward in that?"
