How did Christianity originate?
From the birth, teachings, and death of Jesus Christ. >It may surprise many people but Christianity originated not in the middle east but in what is now modern day Turkey.<
Please provide a link to proof for this statement. According to the Bible itself, this originated in Jerusalem, Galilee, Damascus, the surrounding areas of the Dead Sea- All in modern day Israel. What you are saying here is a borderline anti-christian statement, and I don't think we want to offend anybody.
