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.

First of all, Christianity is not only a religion, it's a relationship. In spite of all the hyposcrisy, stereotypes (as well as truths), and blame, this special faith has proven to be a lending hand when all else fails.

True Christians actually do not Bible-beat you or shun you for not believing in what they do. They may feel sad, worried, or guilty, but they won't turn their noses and walk away. They believe in spreading the Word of their faith, but a true Christian won't attack your ideals and morals if they contradict the mission. Christianity is about open doors and opportunity; the gate to heaven is never closed. The signs are right there in front of your nose every day of your life, and Christians only want you to see them. When you may be struggling in life, it is the role of Christians to allow you to seek shelter and to realize that you indeed have someone to turn to who will always be there for you will never stop caring about you.

Also, true Christianity is not stupid and ignorant. It doesn't have to butt heads with science; it can co-exist and agree. Part of the faith is the ability to be open minded and use logical reasoning, such as realizing the Bible contains many symbols and metaphors that represent the overall message. Jesus Himself often spoke in parables; to take them literally would completely alter the symbolism and meaning of the moral of the story (Sadly, this is a common case). As Christians, we don't necessarily know for sure which stories are parables or not. For example, there are two different stories of creation in the book of Genesis. One involves the creation of the earth and universe in seven literal days. the other actually suggests that humans were made from the dry, waterless ground. (Genisis 2:1-9) So which one do we believe? Arguing over which one is "true" has tragically split the religion unecessarily when the overall picture of God's creative design is the most important part. Even evolution has been considered by some Christians to factor into the creation at some point.

So if you are struggling, searching, or realize that something in your life may be missing, just remember that there is a friendship right there, whenever you are ready to give it a try.
Girl: "I've been so depressed lately. I'm struggling with my decisions, my family, and my weight. I've considered suicide before, and sometimes I feel like I have nowhere to go, and no friends to turn to."

Other Girl: "Have you considered Christianity?"

Girl: "Yeah, but aren't they gonna hate me for my messed up life?"

Other Girl: "Well, I know of someone who may help. Look around you. He's right here; He's been with you this whole time."

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"

not a religion, but a relationship with the loving God of the universe who created us in his image. God sent his only Son Jesus, as a man, who lived a blameless life, the one man who didn't deserve to die, to be crucified for the sins of every man who was, is, and will live. through this sacrafice, we can enjoy a wonderful relationship with God. all you have to do is ask for forgiveness and believe Jesus died and rose again on the 3rd day. Salvation is a gift that not one of us deserves but is given freely!
Christianity has allowed me to live a Glorious life, full of healings, love, and prosperity!

The belief that Jesus is the Son of God, came to Earth to die for all, and lives today for all Christians. Christians are those who believe in God as being their Savior.
Those of us who love Jesus are called Christians and rightfully accused of being involved with Christianity.
