Christianity

From Heterodontosaurus Balls

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Jesus Christ, Matthew 4:4

Christianity is the most popular religion in the world, with more than 2.38 billion followers. Moderates believe in living according to the Ten Commandments along with the teachings of Jesus Christ, while radicals might go as far as crusading against non-Christians.

Since the beginning of Christ’s original teachings, over the years, Christianity has been largely corrupted, and the meanings of Christ’s words misunderstood.

Beliefs[edit | edit source]

Christianity believes that God has sent his son, Jesus Christ, down to earth to save all people from sin and eternal suffering in hell. All one needs to do to earn salvation is to believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and is King. Christianity believes in one God, which is the Holy Trinity. The Holy Trinity states that The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit are all the same God, but they are not each other. This type of trinity is something that does not exist in our mortal world and is one of its kind. Christianity also values morals very much, being kind to others.

History[edit | edit source]

Jesus Christ preached his ideas in Roman Judaea. He was hated by the Jewish leaders at the time because he was claiming to be the son of God, which is threatening their authority. This eventually led to Jesus Christ's crucifixion. But, three days later people found that Jesus's tomb was empty, and that he had rose up from the dead. Jesus Christ appeared to many people, for 40 days he stayed on earth and promised a second return. His disciples founded Early Christianity, which later, caused by a variety of factors including the split of the Roman Empire, divided the Christian church into two: the Roman Catholics in the west and the Eastern Orthodox in the, well, east. Later, due the the growing corruption of the Catholic Church, another new branch was split off, called “ Protestantism”, as in protesting against the Catholic authority. Catholicism and Protestantism became the two biggest branches of Christianity today, while Orthodoxy mainly settled in Russia and other Eastern European countries.
