God, wrote the original bible, which created judaism, but when Jesus came, he made his own group of followers called "Christians" Jesus of Nazareth was the prophet who preached most of the philosophies behind Christianity. However, after his death, many of his followers believed that their they sho…uld only preach Jesus' teachings to Jews. However, Christianity was greatly expanded thanks in large part to Roman soldier Paul of Tarsus, who believed that they should spread the word of God to everyone, including people who were not Jews, or Gentiles.

Many Christians believe the earth was created somewhere between 20,000 and 12,000 years ago. No one knows for sure, because none of us was there.

In the middle east. Saint Paul traveled amongst the various peoples and spread the word. Read the New Testament.
Basically, a Christian is to follow Jesus Christ as their perfect example. Jesus put God the Father above all and did the Father's Will without exception. He followed Gods Law and Sabbath completely - to the letter and the spirit of it as it was originally given in the Garden and will be restored ag…ain in the Millennium. The Church began on the 1st Pentecost after Jesus' resurrection in the year 31 AD. Followers then were called people of the 'Way' or members of the Church of God. It was intended to be only one Church (many different locations) for all people. Today, however, the rainbow coalition of churchianity has over 30,000 sects of Christianity. There is no way each of these differing variations can be the correct or true church. Yet adherents in each would strongly disagree. ( Full Answer )

Yes. In one sense, religion is a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny and the practices and institutions associated with such belief. Religion takes many forms but world religions are dominated by a group of organized religious belief systems and organizations o…f which Christianity, in all of its forms, is the most common. The Christian religion, was founded on the life and teachings of Jesus. Although religious belief is extremely personal and means different things to different people, by definition Christianity is most definitely a religion. ( Full Answer )
In a simply, summary word: Love. We are commanded to Love God completely and then to Love our fellow man just like Jesus love each and everyone of us. Answer: Christianity is about relationship not religion. A Christian is someone who has entered a new relationship with God. The Bible sa…ys everybody is born spiritually dead. Another way of saying this is people don't have a relationship with/know God. This is because the first man and woman did not obey God and so their relationship with God - the creator and sustainer of life - was broken. This is sin. Throughout the history of mankind - as told in the Bible - the way for a person to restore their relationship with God is to acknowledge their relationship with God is broken and to offer a sacrifice. In the early history of mankind this is what people did. God chose the nation of Israel to be His representatives on earth. Israel was supposed to show the other nations what a relationship with God is like. But Israel turned from God and His ways and followed other gods. So God came to earth as a man - Jesus - and died as the 'lamb of God', a sacrifice for the sin of all who believe. If a person believes this, the Bible says God forgives the person and that person gives them eternal life. 1John 5:11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1Johnn 5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. This eternal life is a free gift. To receive it you only have to believe Jesus is the saviour of the world. There are other blessings from accepting Jesus Christ as saviour for example the Christian is adopted into God's family ( Full Answer )
Answer A Islam is an Arabic word that means Submission to God, the one and only one God. All God creations were created on basis of submission to god (Allah in Arabic); including the universe and what is in the skies, the earth, what is in between, and what is under the earth. All people since sta…rt of mankind were called by god prophets for Islam (submission to God). Islam was called Judaism per Torah revelation to Moses, Christianity per the Bible revelation to Jesus, or the very name Islam per Quran revelation to Muhammad. Accordingly, Islam is as old as the earth creation date itself. However, Islam religion per Quran revelation by God (Allah) to prophet Muhammad (PBUH) through the angel Gabriel (Jibril) began by the date of revelation of the first quran verses that was in year 610 AD. Answer B 610 A.D. Also Adam was sent from the heavens to bring Islam from God Islam is great a religion a true religion and the RIGHT religion ( Full Answer )

Christianity began on the day of Pentecost 50 days after Jesus Christ was crucified in Jerusalem. The date would have been approximately 37/38 A.D.
Jesus Christ began Christianity. He was the son off God, who came to earth and lived a perfect, sinless life. He died on a cross to take the punishment we deserve for our rebellion against God- sin. This punishment we deserve is death. He then rose from the dead, and promises that all who have faith… in him will also have eternal life with him.. The people who were around at the time of Jesus, for example, Peter, John and Paul, wrote down much of what Jesus had said and done in historically reliable books. They also went around telling lots of people of all races the good news about Jesus, and because of this, the earliest churches developed.. So to sum up, Jesus Christ started Christianity, and his early followers such as Peter, John and Paul helped to spread it. ( Full Answer )

That depends largely on your definition of Christianity, but typically all Christians agree that the death of Christ is an important aspect of the modern religion, and his death occured in the vicinity of 0AD. It is worth noting that Christianity is in fact an expansion of Judaism. According to Jud…aism, Adam spoke routinely with God, which would make him a prophet, thus by Christian beliefs, Christianity can be considered to be as old as man. ( Full Answer )
The Bible says that God, who is eternal, created the entire universe and everything in six days, and it was good. The full account of creation is in the first few chapters of Genesis.
It is hard to pinpoint exactly where and when the 'religion' began. The beliefs of the Church start at the beginning of time - Creation. God created Adam and Eve and they certainly had a relationship with God. When the eating of the apple happened though (original sin) the relationship between human…s and God changed. This needed to be corrected and that is why Jesus coming is so important - his death and resurrection saves us from sin and promises us eternal life. So that's the beginning or foundation of basic beliefs, but is this the beginning of the official religion. As stated in the creed, the Catholic Church is apostolic which means there is a direct line from Jesus apostles to the people of the Church today - basically the apostles shared the Good News and appointed or ordained new 'leaders' to carry on the Church, who ordained more 'leaders' and so on through to the Pope, cardinals, bishops, priests etc who lead the Church today. So the Church could have started officially with the apostles, However they used Jesus as the model for their work so really it started with Jesus. The Feast of Pentecost is the Church's birthday. This is when the Holy Spirit came down upon the apostles and gave them the confidence and the guidance to continue Jesus mission. So the religion could have started officially at Pentecost. The apostles carried on Jesus mission which he himself had begun in and around Jerusalem. So this again suggests that the Church or certainly the basic ideas of the Church started with Jesus. In more modern times however, there have been a number of councils set up to discuss the catecism of the Catholic Church. So perhaps these councils, where the beliefs were discussed, debated and decided upon is the official founding of the religion. ( Full Answer )
If by Christian you purely mean those who believed in Jesus as God, then it began most officially after the resurrection of Jesus, in 32-35AD. Catholicism continues to be of the same branch of Jesus' original followers, the apostles.. I would consider it being started once Jesus had his disciples s…tart to follow him, for they believed he was the son of God before he died. ( Full Answer )
Judaism started in Canaan but it is present day Israel. Hinduism started in India. Buddhism started in India also. Christianity started in Israel. Islam started in Mecca.
The Christian religion began after the death and ressurrectionof Jesus Christ. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in the country now called Israel. The Bible is the Christian Holy book.

The Christian religion is belief in one supreme God. They believe that God sent his son Jesus to die on the cross and save all people from their sins. They also believe that Jesus rose from the grave three days after burial and lives today in Heaven. Christians believe that if you accept Jesus into …your heart and live according to the Bible, you will go to Heaven. If you deny Jesus, you will go to Hell. Is that really the Gospel Jesus taught? If you have accepted, without question, the almost unanimous voi ce of mainstream Christianity in this regard, you probably think that it is. Do you really know what constitutes the genuine Gospel that Jesus and His Apostles preached? Or have you made a careless assumption, following the crowd . What, then, is the actual Gospel that Jesus preached? Did He simply tell people to believe on Him-or was it far more than that? This is a vital question. For if you believe a lie rather than the Truth, you will eventually find yourself holding a bag of false hopes and unfulfilled expectations! In Luke 13: 23-28 Christ explained the plight of those holding false hopes. We need to deeply appreciate and proclaim this Truth. But that in itself does not constitute the complete Gospel. Regrettably, many do not have faith that God Almighty means what He says and says what He means! God clearly states in these prophecies that He is going to completely transform civilization. God has repeatedly foretold His end-time rule over the nations of this earth: "He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth" (Psalm 96:13). Again, for emphasis, God repeated this prophecy: "For He is coming to judge the earth. With righteousness He shall judge the world, and the peoples with equity" (Psalm 98:9) Why do we not hear that kind of Gospel in today's world? You probably know why. This message is extremely unpopular with most of the religious, political and social leaders in today's power structures. They do not want to lose their power! This was one of the reasons the chief priests and the Pharisees sought to kill Jesus (John 11:47-53). Nevertheless, there will be a real "new world order" established under Jesus Christ's leadership, totally changing this world's political and religious institutions. Will you believe what God says, or will you swallow the "philosophical concoctions" brewed up by disobedient, sinful men who have been deceived by Satan the Devil, the "god" of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4)? Many today worship a false Jesus who supposedly did away with the Father's commandments. People just praise his name and feel nice sentiments about him . So when you hear people preaching about the wonderful "Gospel," you had better make sure they are not just talking about the first phase of the Christian life-our forgiveness from past sins through Jesus' blood. The true Gospel goes far beyond that ! It goes far beyond what most people understand or comprehend. For the ultimate Good News is absolutely transcendent in its implications. It challenges you toward a glorious life of active service in the Kingdom of Godthroughout Christ's soon-coming reign on this earth, and further serving and ruling over the vast universe for eternity! This is the full good news . This is the real Gospel of Jesus Christ ! Could this be the Gospel you believe in or have you been deceived and put up with a false Gospel? ( Full Answer )
Yes, Jesus who Christianity is based around lived in modern day Israel, which is located in the middle east. All of Jesus' followers spread the message around the world. It grew mostly in the eastern European area. Eventually the Emperor Constantine forced all the Roman Empire to convert to Christia…nity. That is when it took off in Europe. But essentially it started in the Middle East. ( Full Answer )
Christianity developed from Judaism. It is built on the same holy book, the Torah, with additions making the Torah the Old Testament and additions the New Testament. After Jesus was born, many declared him to be God's Son and this evolved into Christianity. Answer: Christianity is not a deve…lopment of Judaism. Jesus said this: Mark 2:22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins." The New Testament says this: Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, Hebrews 10:20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, Hebrews 10:21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, Christianity is based on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As the "lamb of God" he paid the penalty for sin and made it possible for people to have a new relationship with God. The relationship with God through Judaism was through blood sacrifice but Jesus......"after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God," - Hebrews 10:12 ( Full Answer )
This is a difficult question as there are so many possibilities. What most people agree on is that there is no one 'official' event that started Christianity.. Some might say that the Incarnation of Jesus Christ (his birth of the Holy Spirit where he became fully human and yet fully God) was a deci…sive moment.. Others would say that his death on the Cross as an atonement for our sins was the decisive moment as this was necessary for our salvation.. Still others would say that the resurrection and ascension - the final conquering of death - was the decisive moment when Christianity started as at this moment the true revelation of just who Jesus is became very evident.. However, it seems to most Christians that the start of the Christian Church as an organisation started after these events - at the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, where the resurrected Christ allowed his Spirit to be poured out on al who turned to him. After this watershed moment, the disciples, alsong with Paul, who had a special revelation of the Holy Spirit on the road to Damascus at his conversion, proclaimed the gospel to all around, and the Christian Church grew astronomically all over the Roman Empire and beyond.. Another perspective: . The church began on the first Day of Pentecost following Jesus' ascension as recorded in Acts chapter 2, and the founding of Christ's church can properly be thought of as the "event" that "officially began Christianity.". Before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, Jesus' immediate followers were twelve apostles and a comparatively small, mostly unorganized group of disciples. After the coming of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, Peter's sermon resulted in the baptism of over 3,000 that day , and Acts 2:47 says, "And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved." Followers of Christ had never been "added to the church" before, nor had they been "saved" just for being His disciples. Though Christ had already ascended, the birth of the church was the crowning glory of His earthly mission, just as He had told the apostles it would be. His final words to them are recorded in Acts 1:8 - But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. . While He was on earth, all "power" resided in Jesus and those to whom He directly bestowed it. With the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church (John 16:20-22), the power of Christ began taking up residence in all who believed and obeyed (Acts 2:38), and "Christianity" is the outcome.

Judaism. Paul, who wrote most of the New Testament, was a Jewish rabbi, before following Jesus. Jesus, was brought up Jewish, in Galilee, and also had rabbinical training. The disciples were also Jewish.
This is such a big issue and you will get such a diverse range of answers on the internet In brief there are 2 main schools of thought 1 - Being a christian or part of christianity means you come from a "christian" nation and perhaps you go to church at christmas/easter etc, and also you perha…ps get baptised as a child. Its quite nominal, doesnt really affect your life and also can cover a wide range of beliefs (protestant - catholic - orthodox - Anglican - Jehovahs witness etc etc) 2 - Personally i dont believe number 1 - My beliefs and alot of others say that christianity is ALL ABOUT CHRIST (JESUS) its in the name!! Jesus was fully man and fully God The bible is Gods word The bible is true Every person on earth by his her actions have fallen short of Gods perfect standard God loved us so much that he sent Jesus to help, to save us by dying for us... He rose again Following Jesus can have real power to change your life for the better Dont let so called "christians" put you off looking into who Jesus was This is so brief its silly, please let me know if you would like anything expanded on, id love to help with your questions! i'll do my best to see what i can answer Gareth ( Full Answer )
Christianity is not a religion. Christianity is most definitely nto a religion. Christianity is aRELATIONSHIP with a living God. Christianity is a monotheistic religion. Meaning: The belief that there is only one God. Answer2: Jesus said to his followers: "You are my friends if you do what Iam …commanding you." ( John 15:14 ) Since Jesus' teachingsaffected all aspects of their lives, Christ's disciples initiallyreferred to their religion as "The Way." ( Acts 9:2 ) Soon thereafter, "[they]were by divine providence called Christians." ( Acts 11:26 ) This new name they boremeant that they believed that Jesus was the Son of God, who hadtransmitted to mankind the will of his heavenly Father. This beliefled them to follow a way of life that differed from that of theworld around them. Christ's teachings moved his followers to follow Bible teachings,which meant avoiding "fornication, uncleanness, loose conduct,idolatry, practice of spiritism, enmities, strife, jealousy, fitsof anger, contentions, . . . drunken bouts, revelries, and thingslike these." ( Galatians5:19-21; Ephesians4:17-24 ) The apostle Paul reminded Corinthian Christians thatsome of them had once practiced these very things. Then he added:"But you have been washed clean, but you have been sanctified, butyou have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord JesusChrist."- 1 Corinthians6:9-11 . E. W. Barnes relates in his book The Rise of Christianity : "In its early authoritativedocuments the Christian movement is represented as essentiallymoral and law-abiding. Its members desired to be good citizens andloyal subjects. They shunned the failings and vices of paganism. Inprivate life they sought to be peaceful neighbours and trustworthyfriends. They were taught to be sober, industrious andclean-living. Amid prevailing corruption and licentiousness theywere, if loyal to their principles, honest and truthful. Theirsexual standards were high: the marriage tie was respected andfamily life was pure." Such were aspects of being a Christian inthe early days. Another distinctive sign of early Christianity was its zealousevangelizing work. Christ commanded his followers: "Go thereforeand make disciples of people of all the nations." ( Matthew 28:19, 20 ) JeanBernardi, a professor at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France,noted: "[Christians] were to go out and speak everywhere and toeveryone. On the highways and in the cities, on the public squaresand in the homes. Welcome or unwelcome. To the poor, and to therich encumbered by their possessions. . . . They had to take to theroad, board ships, and go to the ends of the earth." ( Full Answer )
Christianity began when Jesus was on the Earth. Matthew 16:18 is where Jesus the beginning of His church (Not to be confused with the Catholic church). The true church follows the scripture, and the scriptures alone. Catholics cannot claim this as they follow the traditions of the church as well as …the decrees of the Popes. . So Christianity began about 2000 years ago and comes out of the Jewish religion as Jesus was the fulfilment of the Prophecy of the Messiah who came to take away the sins of the world. The continuing of the Jews today is simply because they did not all accept Jesus as God's Son. . Though many groups today claim to be Christian among the Catholics, Protestants and Baptists, only those who have kept the faith of the Word of God are true members of God's church on earth. The Church of God has been carried down through the ages by peoples and groups known by these names; Paulitians, Albagensies, Novations, Donatists, Huguenots, Waldensians, Anabaptists, Pedo-Baptists, Baptists, New Evangelicals, and Southern Baptists. Today's Bible following Christians (Those who hold to God's Word alone as the spiritual guide to life and the church) are known as Independent, Fundamental, Bible Believing (KJV) Baptists.

During the various revolutions of the empire, the Christians had flourished in relative peace and prosperity, with two brief periods of official persecution in 249-251 and 257 CE. The Great Persecution was instituted by Diocletian (284-305) in 303, and lasted until 305 in the western Empire, but unt…il 311 in the East. During this period, nearly two thousand Christians are beleived to have died for their faith. During more than eighteen years from the start of the reign of Diocletian, he exhibited a mild and liberal spirit of toleration towards Christianity. The emperor's principal eunuchs, Lucian and Dorotheus, Gorgonius and Andrew, were Christians. The bishops held an honourable rank in their respective provinces and were treated with distinction and respect, not only by the people, but by magistrates themselves. In almost every city, the ancient churches were being replaced by more stately and capacious edifices for the public worship of the faithful. Meanwhile, Diocletian's two associates, Maximian and Galerius, held the most implacable aversion for Christianity. Examples of Christian civil disobedience, even treason, were becoming widespread and well known. It seemed that the Christians, renouncing the gods and institutions of Rome, had constituted a distinct republic that needed to be suppressed before it had acquired any military force. It was atready governed by its own laws and magistrates, was possessed of its own public treasury and was intimately connected to all its parts bv the frequent assemblies of the bishops, to whose decrees their numerous and.opulent congregations yielded obedience before their obedience to the emperor. It was enacted that the churches, in all the provinccs of tho empire, should be demolished to thcir foundations; and the punishment of dcath was denounced against all who attempted to hold any secret assemblies for the purpose of religious worship. The judges were authorised to hear and to determine any action that was brought against a Christian, but the Christians not permitted to complain of any injury which they themselves had sufferred. Within fifteen days of the edict being published, the palace of Nicomedia, even the bedchamber of Diocletian, were twice in flames. Both times they were extinguished without any material damage, but the repetition of the fire was justly considered as an evident proof that it had not been the effect of chance or negligence. The suspicion naturally fell on the Christians. A few days later Galerius hastily left Nicomedia, declaring his fear that he would fall victim to the rage of the Christians. In some ways, the empire seemed to be in a state of civil war. Galerius may have been the instigator of the Great Persecution, but it was Diocletian whoi authorised it and determined the extent to which it would be pursued. ( Full Answer )

It started in the Arabian Peninsula, specifically in Mecca. Islam is the heavenly religion It is not limited to any particular region or country. The first Man and Prophet of Almighty God Hazarat Adam (AS) started Islam Religion. Islam is the set of rules given by Almighty God to the Prophets fro…m time to time for the guidance of humans, especially when they turned astray. These rules were given to Hazrat Adam (AS), Hazrat Noa (AS), Hazrat Abraham (AS), Hazrat Moses (AS), Hazrat Jesus Christ (AS) and the last of the series of Prophets Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (May peace be upon him). Withe passage of time the teachings of the earlier prophets were obscured, altered, or changed. There was a need of a new Prophet. Thus the last prophet came. He was born in Makka, Arabia in 570 AD and started preaching Islam in 610 AD when the first verses of the holy Qur'an were revealed to him. Thus Islam is the heavenly religion given step by step as human society advanced. Just as we pass one class and are promoted to the next class with advanced syllabus to read and practice. It was completed at the last Prophet but the message of all the Prophets (May peace be upon them all) was the same: ONENESS of Almighty God Who alone is the Creator, Sustainer, Provider and Ruler of all the worlds He has created. He has No Son, No Parents and No Partner or Associate. ( Full Answer )
Christian tradition holds that Emperor Nero (54-68 CE) began the official Roman persecution of Christians, even having the two greatest apostles, Peter and Paul, executed. However historians say that, apart from blaming the Christian residents of Rome for the Great Fire, he seems not to have persecu…ted the Christians at all. And there is no real evidence that either Peter or Paul was executed on his authority. The correspondence between Pliny and Emperor Trajan (98-117) indicates that there were no general laws or decrees of the senate in force against the Christians and that neither Trajan nor any of his predecessors had publicly declared their intentions concerning the new sect. It is generally agreed that there was no organised, general, centrally directed persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire before the edict of Emperor Decius in 249. This remained in effect until 251 CE. While there were localised and isolated instances of persecution of Christians prior to Decius, he was the first emperor to seriously persecute the new faith. Even so, the learned Origen, who from his experience as well as reading was intimately acquainted with the history of the Christians, declared that the number of martyrs was not great.

The Christan's Belief's of how the world began is almost in your question word Christan begins with the word Christ as in Jesus Christ in the belief Adam and Eve were the first people on Earth and were given the commandment to multiply ..."have many children" and till the earth meanwhile Jesus Chris…t Was creating the universe it was described that it happened over the space of seven days but days to us may be different to them it could have been seven years !on the seventh day he rested earning the name Sunday the day of rest a nother response: A great many educated Christians find no contradiction between their faith in the Creator God and scientific explanations of the universe and the evolution of life. Answer There has been much in the media recently about Creationism and Creationists. Creationists are Christians who insist on interpreting the story of Creation in the Bible absolutely literally. Creationists insist that Genesis must be taken as literal fact, or you cannot be called 'Christian'. As a Christian and as someone who has been involved in scientific research and education all his working lfe, I find this offensive. Genesis, in the original Hebrew, is an allegorical Hebrew poem - it contains much truth about human/God relationships, humanity's sinful nature, our tendency to reject our own Creator and so on. But not even the ancient Jews accepted Genesis as fact. Even Paul, in his letters, who quoted parts of Genesis involving Adam, used the terms allegorically. The number of cases Jesus himself referred to Adam, or to Genesis, is precisely zero. Yet there are those who insist that Genesis should be taken as literal fact, despite the Jewish and Christian traditions, and despite the original Hebrew poetic nature, and despite its literal acceptance flying in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence that simply does not suppoer a literal interpretation of Genesis. This does more harm than good, as it brands Creationists as crackpots, and rightly so, but, in doing so, brands all Christians - especially the majority who take a much more informed view of Genesis - as crackpots too, which is wrong. Most Christians accept the Big Bang, the formation of the stars and planets and evolution as would any other person. The evidence is plain to see. However, within that evolution, they also believe in a God who set that evolution in motion, by creating the universe with a unique set of values and constants that enables life to exist. Moreover, they believe in a God who is still at work in Creation, maintaining it through love. ( Full Answer )

Jesus Christ began the Christian religion. The followers of the Apostles erected Churches and the Apostles themselves appointed Bishops and Deacons to head up those Churches. Those Bishops, built other Churches and appointed other Bishops who would succeed them. In Rome, for instance, there have bee…n a total of 265 Bishops of Rome in the last 2000 years, starting with the Apostle Peter and continuing with Pope Benedict XVI. All of these Bishops contributed to the building process of Churches and Dioceses. While much worship consisted of the commemoration of the Last Supper (or the Holy Mass) in private homes, due to the persecution of the Christians by Rome, Churches were erected, some of the withstanding constant attacks from the secular Roman authorities. Remnants of some of these Churches still remain and are a part of either the Holy Roman Catholic Church or of the Eastern Orthodox Church. ( Full Answer )

Yes, Christianity is a religion. 33% of the world's population is Christian. The main beliefs of Christians are in God, his son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit (sometimes called the Holy Ghost). Being a Christian means that you believe in God, you believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and …died on the cross for your sins, and that if you repent, or ask for forgiveness, Jesus will forgive your sins. The eternal punishment of sin is death. God believes that you should be holy, god-like and sinless as he is. This is completely impossible since humans are sinful creatures. God is so good that he sent his only son to die on the cross to save us of our sins. In the moment of his death, Jesus felt the weight of all of our sins on him at once. We should not feel bad about Jesus's death because he rose from the dead three days later. This showed everyone that he was in fact the son of God. Now when we sin, we can pray to Jesus and ask for his forgiveness. When you have prayed and asked Jesus into your heart and know that he is the son of God, you will be saved. Being saved means that you will go to heaven when you die. Unsaved people will unfortunately go to Hell after death and spend eternity with Satan. its what you call the people who are catholic ( Full Answer )

At first people thought that this wouldn't last long but everyday Islam grew in no. and in power so people started torturing those who entered Islam.When the prophet saw the pain that the Muslims suffered he decided that they should travel to a place where no one would harm them and so they did travel to a place called madyna and continued to grow in power but a lot of people did not like this so they decided to fight the Muslims but from the first fight they lost and Muslims won even though Muslims were less than them in no. after that god wanted the prophet to let everybody that lived know about Islam so the prophet Muhammad would go to each country and ask them to teach people about Islam but all of them refused the prophet would give the country 3 days to think if still the answer was no he would have to invade it so that people could learn about Islam. p.s : when the prophet went to war he ordered the Muslims not to kill or hurt a woman or a child or an old man and even not to cut a tree or set anything on fire he basically told them to fight the army who was fighting them. very very short summary _____________________________________________________ Islam started with start of universe creation. refer to question below.

According to tradition, Abraham founded Judaism, and Moses laterreceived the Torah from God. Abraham, tenth generation descendant of Noah, of Hebrew lineage,was the son of Terah, uncle of Lot, father of Isaac, grandfather ofJacob, and ancestor of the Israelites. His story is in Genesisch.11 (end), t…hrough ch.25. Jewish tradition states that he was thefirst to teach belief in One God; and it is in his merit that Jewscontinue to exist (Genesis 18:19, and ch.17). Abraham (18th century BCE) came from ancestry that had beenGod-fearing a couple of centuries earlier but had afterwardsslipped into idolatry (Joshua 24:2). Nimrod, the idolatrous tyrant,had brought Abraham's father (Terah) from the Semitic ancestralseat near the conjunction of the Balikh and the Euphrates, andinstated him in a position of power in his army in the royalBabylonian city of Ur, where Abraham was born. Nimrod persecutedany who would question his idolatrous cult. The Kuzari (Rabbi Judah HaLevi, 1075-1141) states that Abraham wasgifted with high intelligence; and, as Maimonides (1135-1204)describes, Abraham didn't blindly accept the ubiquitous idolatry.The whole populace had been duped, but the young Abrahamcontemplated the matter relentlessly, finally arriving at theconclusion that there is One God and that this should be taught toothers as well. This is what is meant by his "calling out in thename of the Lord" (Genesis ch.12). As a young man, he remonstratedwith passersby in public, demonstrating to them the falsehood oftheir idols; and our tradition tells how he was threatened andendangered by Nimrod. Subsequently, Terah relocated to Harran; and it is here thatAbraham began to develop a circle of disciples (Rashi commentary,on Genesis 12:5). Later, God told Abraham in prophecy to move to the Holy Land, whichis where Abraham raised his family. He continued his contemplations, eventually arriving at theattitudes and forms of behavior which God later incorporated intothe Torah given to Moses. Abraham taught disciples (Talmud, Yoma28b), gave tithes (Genesis ch.14), strove to raise a family(Genesis ch.15, 17, and 24) which would serve God (Genesis 18:19),made a covenant with God (Genesis ch.15 and 17), welcomed guestsinto his home (Genesis ch.18) unlike the inhospitable Sodomites(Genesis ch.19), prayed for people (Genesis ch.18), rebuked otherswhen necessary (Genesis ch.20), eulogized and buried the deceased(Genesis ch.23), and fulfilled God's will unquestioningly (Genesisch.22). He became renowned as a prince of God (Genesis 23:6). All of these forms of behavior were based upon the ways of God,which Abraham comprehended through his contemplations. These, andsimilar personality traits, were the teachings of Abraham and hisdescendants. It is therefore clear why God expresses His love for Abraham(Isaiah 41:8) and calls Himself the God of Abraham (Genesis 26:24),and says that Abraham obeyed Him fully (Genesis 26:5). And this iswhy, according to our tradition, Abraham is credited with havingbegun the religion which became known as Judaism. However, Abrahamand his descendants observed their traditions voluntarily, untilthe Giving of the Torah to Moses 3325 years ago, when God made itobligatory. ( Full Answer )
A: Although Christians probably still comprised less than half the population of the Roman Empire, Emperor Theodosius made Christianity "as taught by the bishops of Rome and Alexandria" the official religion of empire in 380 CE. In 391, he closed all the temples and made the public worship of the …pagan gods punishable by death. Against such ferocious persecution, it is natural that paganism went into rapid decline, at least in the parts of the empire most closely under Roman control. Gnostic Christianity had also been proscribed as a heresy and was already in decline by the time of Theodosius; he simply accelerated the process. His edict also meant that Arian Christianity was illegal, and could no longer be practised in the empire. ( Full Answer )
