During his life Jesus teached, told parables, performed miracles,etc. Some people started to follow him and then crowds followed him. Then they started to call him Messiah and then other people got angry. Even though Jesus never did anything wrong people still hated him. They thought he wanted to become king. Then they planned to kill him. Over the time of Jesus's live he gathered 12 people and called him there disciples. They are like personal followers of Jesus. One day while Jesus was in the garden praying one of his disciples betrayed him. The guards captured him and then later sentenced him to death. He was crucified on across and died while his hands and feet were nailed to the cross) As Christian's we believe that Jesus died on the cross to save us from our deadly sins. There is a price to pay for our sins. And that us death. But Jesus died for us to save us from a enternal burning lake of fire, a burning hell. 3 days later he did something even more amazing he rose from the dead. So in summary Christianity is the belief of God's son Jesus coming to Earth saving us and raising from the the dead. But there is more to Christianity than you think. So much more. Like the Holy Spirit. We also believe that Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us to God. Then when we die we go to heaven and praise,worship and live with God until the end of the world. Even still there is so much more. God loves you. That is just my definition of Christianity.
I believe that Christianity is not a religion. It is a relationship.

Faith system in which the believer follows Christ and obeys His commandments.
Todd believes on Christ and follows Christ's example, therefore Todd is a Christian and part of Christianity

Hitler was not following Christ's example or obeying His commandments. Therefore Hitler wasn't Christian. He was a wolf in sheep's clothing and was not a true subscriber of Christianity.

Some politicians try to use Christianity to justify their actions and/or gain popularity.

A religion that would have made sense had it not been for the nature and character of its followers.

A religion that follows primarily the teachings of Jesus Christ and the New Testament of the Holy Bible. Christianity has warped over the years. One perfect example is Mark 16:15. Because of this verse, many modern-day "Christians" take it upon themselves to go door-to-door and convert people to their religion. Real Christians, however, don't try to force their religion upon others, as they try to be more Jesus-like, and Jesus never forced his religion upon others; People followed him willfully.
Due to Mark 16:15, many a man believes that Christianity is made up of nothing more than some door-a-knockin' hooligans who only want to bother you while you watch Magnum P.I. to spread "the good news".

A religion based on the new testament section of the bible, containing the life and works of Jesus Christ. Main beliefs can be found in the prayers, Apostle's Creed and Nicene Creed. Some beliefs also based on Judaism and the Old Testament. Teaches that there is one singular God who if merciful and forgiving. Unadultered principles of teachings are kindness and forgiveness, basically to hate the sin and love the sinner. Has many sects and denominations.
Mother Teresa was and is a fine example of somebody who truly follows Christianity.

A pyramid scheme based on a philosophy that was fairly progressive 2000 years ago. It has been rendered obsolete by modern scientific understanding largely due to its inability to resolve its inconsistencies through intelligently-applied critical thinking. It now serves as a means of deterring social and political advancement and as a tax on the gullible.
The christian-controlled majority in congress voted to withdraw federal funds to help support financially disadvantaged infants, reminding the public that the babies will go to heaven.

A popular religion founded by a pacifist proto-socialist who promoted social justice, tolerance, and peace. Jesus Christ was a remarkably liberal man for his time, accepting prostitutes and murderers, among others, into his group. Unfortunately corrupted over the years, some branches of Christianity now seem to promote the opposite of the religion's founding aims, drawing on the works of St Paul, an evangelist who lived 50 years after the death of Jesus Christ. These sects of Christianity reverently follow Paul's interpretation, but refuse to accept any more modern interpretations of Christ's life.

Nevertheless, most mainstream Christians, (that is mainstream in the European sense, not the American sense) continue to try to fulfill the original aims of the religion. Please don't judge Christianity on a few mad sects in America and a old-fashioned German pope. Despite getting the most media coverage, they do not accurately represent Christianity and most Christians.
Archbishop Rowan Williams, Cardinal Hume and Mother Teresa are all people who try/tried to follow true Christianity.
