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.

Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.

Christianity is monotheistic religion which worships one patriachal all-powerful God. The Holy Book of Christianity is the Bible, from the greek word Biblios, which translates to 'Book', although technically the Bible is not one book but indeed 66 books.

There are many different denominations of Christianity, and it is incredibly hard to estimate how many Christians there are in the United States because there is no common belief on what defines a Christian. The most liberal view of everyone who says they are a Christian being a Christian would place the figure around 75%, whereas the considerably more conservative belief that anyone outside your own denomination is not a Christian can place the figure as low as 0.1%.

Denominations sprout from the original idea of Christianity because some phrases from the bible contridict each other, and thus to harmonise this people say phrase A is literal whereas phrase B is symbolic. However, one group might say A is symbolic, but another might say B is symbolic. Thus, there are now hundreds of different denominations preaching slightly different versions of effectively the same source material.

Unfortunately, as Christianity is the 'big' religion of the Western World, it gets a lot of negative press. However, like all groups, Christianity has the best and worst among their number. The Christians who get the most press are the ones who give the stereotypical image of never doing anything wrong, and sitting on streets shout 'REPENT OR GO TO HELL', or something similarly pleasant.

However, many Christians - most, in fact - are decent people who just want the right to practice their own religion, like everyone else (or the right to NOT practice a religion, in the case of some).
Christians believe in a single, patriachal god.

A religion that would have made sense had it not been for the nature and character of its followers.
Some of the most violent wars and genocides during the last 2000+ years can be blamed on the spread of Christianity.

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".
