Christianity originated roughly 2000 years ago in the Middle East in what was then the Roman province of Judea. The New Testament tells of a Jewish citizen named Jesus of Naza…reth, who claimed to be the son of God. He is said to have performed many miracles, and gained devoted followers. His disciples believed that he was the Messiah - a figure spoken of in Jewish prophecy that would usher in a golden age for the Hebrew people. However, some of the religious leaders and other Jews did not believe Jesus, and thought he was a false Messiah. One of Jesus' own disciples turned him over to the authorities, and he was executed by crucifixion. His disciples claimed that three days after he died, he rose again and ascended to heaven. While the Old Testament of the Bible is based upon the Jewish Torah, the New Testament is about the teachings of Jesus, which is where the two religions split paths. The Jews do not believe that Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of the Messiah, such as ruling over an independent Jewish nation. Christians believe that Jesus was the Messiah, and the Greek translation Kristos, is where Christianity got its name from.
Being a Christian is someone who practices Christianity to the best of their ability. A christian does their best to live like Christ, and therefore, love everyone to the best… of their ability.
Being a christian is about loving God, understanding his word, evangelizing to those who are lost. Mostly understanding what Jesus Christ did for us like dying on the cross so… we can live for all eternity in heaven with him if we believe in his name. By God sending Jesus Christ he showed us His unending love for us. If you have any questions go to a bookstore and buy a bible.
God, the creator of all things. Christianity came from followers of Jesus Christ who spread the word about his teachings and death.
Christianity is a fulfillment of the prophesies of the Jews. Jesus was the Messiah that they had prayed and waited for. It therefore, originated in the Middle East after Jesus… came to earth. "Christianity" means a following of Christ.
Just a few years after Jesus died on the cross. But, as soon as Christianity was founded, the Christians were tortured and slaughtered like animals.
Christianity sprouted out of the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, a Jewish man who lived roughly 2000 years ago in the Roman province of Judea - now modern-day Israel..
Christians came about from Jesus Christ. If they accept that he did that for them, they become Christians...and well, they have to try to live like him, obviously they aren't …perfect like him, but they need to try to love everyone, and accept people others don't. A lot of the time they blend in with non-believers, or stand out in a bad way, but there are ones trying to show Christ's love.
Lexicographic Answer Christianity is the belief that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and that through his sacrifice all of the sins of humanity can be atoned. Catholicism is one… form (and the most populous form) of Christianity based on the fact that Jesus spoke to Paul saying that "Upon Him Should His Church Be Founded." Paul founded the Papacy in Rome and it has served as the guiding force in Roman Catholicism and all other Churches that are in communion with the Pope (such as Maronite, Coptic, Byzantine, and other Non-Roman Catholic Rites). There are those who either belong to one of the Orthodoxies (i.e. Russian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, etc.), one of the Protestant Groups (i.e. Methodist, Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, etc.) or the Armenian Apostolic Church (among others) who do not hold allegiance to the Pope. These faiths are still Christian in that they hold the first sentence of this answer true, but are not Catholics because they are not in communion with the Papacy. Roman Catholic Answer Yes, Catholic and Christian are two words that mean exactly the same thing. There has arisen some confusion in the past five centuries due to those attached to the heresy of protestantism. They have appropriated the word "Christian" to mean what they believe. Unfortunately "Christian" refers to a follower of Christ, who established only one Church and guaranteed that It would remain One, and that He would be with It and send the Holy Spirit to guide it until the end of time. Protestants are considered Christians insofar as they are baptized in the name of the Trinity and believe in the Nicene Creed in its traditional interpretation. We must not put protestants into the same category as those who left the Church originally, as they were brought up in ignorance of Christ's Church and taught to believe that the Catholic Church was mistaken; but because of these difficulties we are bound to pray for them and to bring them the truth insofar as we can. The word "Christian" used by a protestant means something entirely different and is basically meaningless, so in that sense and used by a protestant , they do not use it to mean the same thing.
It came from Judaism. Jesus was a Jew and so was all his followers
Christianity was essentially created as a rejection of Judaism, therefore, the core tenets of Christianity are diametrically opposed to those of Judaism. Some examples of C…hristian beliefs and concepts that are not accepted by Judaim are: - The trinity - Original sin - The Christian concept of sin - The devil - Heaven and hell - The idea of eternal damnation - The Christian concept of messiah - The virgin birth - That G-d can be man or son of man - The need to pray to G-d through intermediaries - The Christian concept of salvation and grace
being christian is believing in God and the birth of Jesus and the fact he saved us even though we didnt deserve it.
In Religion & Spirituality
In the hope that they will convince others.
Being Orthodox is the same as being Christian, because it is the religion that started Christianity.
Before Christianity, people believed in God according to faith. Most were Jewish, but there were Jewish converts and those who just believed. The early believers simply were l…ooking forward to the time of Christ, and according to Paul, they were justified by faith.
Many would point to the start of Christianity being Pentecost Sunday, 17 June 31 AD, in Jerusalem, Israel.
If you are speaking of the English Protestants that separated from the English Church and held more closely to Scripture they were considered Christian. Other groups using the… name Puritan (non religious) would not be considered Christian.
