Actually, it should be the category entitled "The Bible" that is
divided that way. While the Bible is a very important book for
Christianity, putting all the books of the Bible under the
"Christianity" category doesn't make nearly as much sense.
This may become possible in the futu…
Answer 1: to me as a christian it doesn't mean nothing. I do
believe in a new and transformed glorious body, but not to be
incorporated into someone else's body or any other type of body.
Jesus was conceived by the Holy Ghost, but then again was God in a
human body, his own body. Incarnation means "…
Christmas is NOT celebrated in Russia on January 7th. It is celebrated on December 25th. Of course, the follow up question would be "When is December 25th?" Pre-revolutionary Russia used the Julian calendar universally, i.e. for government, personal purposes and church purposes. When the Soviet gov…
No matter what quotes the revisionists find, there is overwhelming evidence that almost all of the founding fathers believed in the Judeo-Christian Diety and were members of established churches even though some made statements that were critical of organized religion.

It depends on what you mean by founding the country on Christianity. Most of the founders were Christians. Some of them were Deists but it was a particular form of deism that was heavily influenced by Christianity and involved a deep reverence for the Bible as a source of divinely inspired guidance …
Hugely interesting question and requires a book or two to answer fully.First, however, I'd like to correct you on the use of the term human rights-- if you mean the Founders' of the US, then they were more interested in civil rights and freedoms. The term "human rights" only came after WWII (1945 Sa…
That is a question of faith, not history. But there are some
people, especially Biblical Christians, who believe that is true.
That is actually a line from the Old Testament, or Hebrew
Scriptures. It was applying to the nation of Israel, not
necessarily today's modern State of Israel.
A simple web search or glance through an encyclopedia will tell that Samaritans came from the ancient city Samaria, located in an area which was called Canaan until Christians and Muslims began calling it...Palestine.

This was also confusing to me as well.

Belief in God
Here are opinions on this potentially contentious question:
Free Will. The gift from God is also the curse to Man. The Fall
of Man is based on Free Will. Without Free Will, we would be
robots. With Free Will, we are children, always looking for
freedom. God's provisions are enough to…
Mormons believe in a modern-day prophet to provide revelations about God's will and they say they believe in the Bible and what it has to say (as far as it is translated correctly). They believe faith is based on good works and they strive to be perfect in all that they do. They believe that the KJV…

According to the Bible, He was crucified on a cross at Golgotha, or "The place of a skull," undoubtedly outside the wall of Old Jerusalem.

There's only one Christian community I have ever heard of in my life, and that would be a church. If there was an all Christian living community, I would surely be there. :-)

The term "Mormon" is an informal nickname for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Brutality of the Cross
Although the symbol of the cross appears in much pagan history
prior to Jesus, the crucifixion cross has historical meaning due to
the fact that crucifixion was a real, historical method of
execution. As an instrument of death, the cross was detested by the
Jews, so it be…
Easter is the name of the English Goddess of Light. Her annual Spring-time festival was ancient before the Christians appeared and caused the people, in the words of the Venerable Bede, to "celebrate the old feast in the spirit of a new solemnity."

This is a really strange question with several answers.
First of all, to clarify: the Jews did not kill Jesus. The
Catholic Church even issued an apology for that one.
Second, Jesus was never a king. He was a rabbi, a teacher.
Third, you don't have to be Jewish to hate Nazis.
Catholic Answer Below you will find many viewpoints and "arguments" about this topic, but the Church does not put forth any arguments for the simple reason that the Pope has ruled infallibly that only men can be ordained to the priesthood, and this is to be held as part of the deposit of faith.

What forms of ministry, ordained or otherwise do the Catholic/Anglican/Orthodox and Uniting Churches have?
The Catholic, Orthodox + Anglican churches have the following ordained ministries:
Episcopacy (overseeing a diocese i.e. group of parishes)
Answer:The main form of worship for Catholics and Orthodox is the Mass which is NOT a commemoration of the Last Supper. It is the Passover, the Dying of Our Blessed Lord on the Cross for our salvation. Think of it this way, to attend Mass is to actually witness the One and Only Event of Our Blessed …
Christians are not better; we are sinners like everyone else. We've simply accepted Gods gift.

The divine right of kings is a belief system that was widely held in the past that a king's right to rule his people is a right granted by God. This belief is probably as old as the idea of kingship and many monarchies around the world attributed their powerbase to the "fact" that they wer…

Islam doesn't fight anyone. In fact a Muslim is no Muslim unless he believes in Moses and Jesus as prophets sent by Allah to guide people to the right path just as Muhammad (PBUH) is. Islam teaches people how to be tolerant with all other people of all faiths unless they-other people-started war.
nope... he is a Muslim
I dought that he is christian. if he was christian then he wouldn't descrase his own religon by saying bad things about it.
no he is a buddist don't believe me then go to answers.com and type muhammed hassan
No they do not. Muslims believe that the Lord Jesus is a prophet of Allah, but, they believe Christians are blasphemers for believing that the Lord Jesus Is Divine.
