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 Nazareth, who claimed to be the son of God. He is said to have performed many miracles, and gained devoted followers. His discipl…es 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. ( Full Answer )
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, they are one and the same. Answer: The Roman Catholics are a sect of the Christian religion - all Roman Catholics are Christians but not all Christians are Roman Catholics. Roman Catholic Answer Christianity is the religion of, the body of faith and morals taught by, the Catholic Chur…ch of Christ. The word may be properly extended to include the religious systems of the dissident Eastern churches and of some Protestant bodies (see Christian below). The current popular use of the word [Christianity] in an ethical, subjective sense, is to be deplored: it is stripping it of all objective or historical connotations. Please note that protestants, whose ecclesial unions broke away from the Christian Church in the sixteenth century, have since appropriated the term "Christian" to themselves, although classically, their "churchs" are known as sects. In other words, as Mr. Attwater explains in his dictionary, the term "Christian" has become devoid of any real meaning as evidenced by the answer above and below. Christian . A name first given to the followers of our Lord at Antioch (Acts xi, 26). Since the rise of Protestantism the name has been used in so many different senses as to have become almost meaningless: it may indicate a Catholic or a Unitarian, or even be applied to an infidel who displays some virtue which is associated with Christ. It may reasonably be applied to the members of all the ancient churches, whether in communion with the Holy See or not, and to those Protestants who profess, explicitly or implicitly, the Nicene creed in its traditional interpretation . the Church puts no definite official meaning on the word, as she does on Catholic. from A Catholic Dictionary, Edited by Donald Attwater, 2nd Edition, revised. Non-Catholic Answer They are not one in the same. There are many denominations of Christians, Catholics are only one and many non-Catholics would be offended with the inference. ( Full Answer )
Answer . The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or Mormon Church regards itself as a Christian Church, although most other Christian denominations disagree.. In favour of the Mormon Church being a Christian religion is that the Church worships Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Saviour.… This belief is central to Christianity.. Against the Mormon Church being a Christian religion is the Mormon belief in polytheism. However, there is arguably an element of polytheism in at least some other Christian denominations.

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 )

God, the creator of all things. Christianity came from followers of Jesus Christ who spread the word about his teachings and death.
Christianity has its roots in Judaism, the religion on the Jewish people. The very first Christians (including Jesus and his Apostles) were Jews, keeping the Sabbath on Saturday, for example, and presumably making sacrifices to the God of Israel at the Temple in Jerusalem as was the custom of the da…y. Jesus' parents Mary and Joseph are described in the Gospels as having gone to the Temple to make an offering in thanksgiving for Jesus' birth. Both Judaism and Christianity have changed considerably since the first century, however, so that neither closely resemble the practices of the time of Jesus. The Judaism of Jesus' day was centered on the Temple in Jerusalem, which was permanently destroyed by the Romans about 40 years after Jesus' crucifixion. Judaism today (often called "rabbinic" Judaism) is governed by the writings called the Talmud codified by rabbinic sages who lived a few hundred years later. Christianity quickly shed its ties to Temple Judaism. The Apostle Paul (aka Saul of Tarsus, believed to also be the Paul who wrote the New Testament epistles bearing his name), supported the conversion of nonbelievers into Christianity without first requiring a conversion to Judaism or the adopting of Jewish laws. This worked to make Christianity "easier" for Roman subjects who did not have to alter their food, dress or customs to those of the Jews in order to convert. When Christianity was legalized in the Roman Empire in the year 313, the ties to Judaism were all but completely severed. At the Council of Nicaea, in 325, the basic tenets of modern Christianity were laid out, including the Sunday Sabbath, divinity of Jesus, etc. The tenor of many of the documents coming from the council was less than positive about the Jews, however, solidifying centuries of mistrust and bloodshed. (As an aside, the Council also kicked off centuries of in-fighting amongst various Christian sects which cost many lives and was at least partially responsible for the break up of the Empire). Today, both Jews and Christians consider the Hebrew Bible (in Hebrew, the Tanakh, which is the Christian Old Testament) a sacred text, but Christians and Jews arrange the books in a different order and interpret some of the passages quite differently. There are some verses that are seen by Jews as talking about a messiah who has not yet come (or about unrelated events in history) which are seen by Christians as foretelling of Jesus. See Micah 5:2, Daniel 7:13-14, Isaiah 9:6-7 and Isaiah 52:13 to 53:12. Further, the laws of the first five books (the Torah ) are also approached differently, with Jews having three millennia old (and still evolving) legal code based on Torah law, and Christians seeing many (but not all) of the laws as having been "fulfilled" by Jesus' death and resurrection and therefore no longer applicable. ( Full Answer )
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.
Christianity comes from Judaism. The Jewish Holy Book is the Torah, which is the Old Testament in the Christian's Bible.
You think that protestantism should not be classified as Christian because if they belief some different things than Christians do they should come up with their total own religion?
Protestants are Christian. They believe in Christ the same as Catholics do. Protestants may have some different beliefs but they believe that Jesus is the saviour of the world and that he died and rose from the dead. Christians are people who believe in Christ, therefore Protestants are Christian.
It is difficult to answer this question without making a judgment based only on opinion. Any loyal Christian would immediately say that Christianity is a good religion; in fact, some very devout Christians believe it is the only true faith. Certainly, there are a number of positive things about Chri…stianity that believers see as especially important: these would include Christianity's message of a loving savior, forgiveness of sins, and hope for the resurrection of the dead (so that they may be reunited with their loved ones who miss them). But in fairness, it should be noted that all religions have good in them, and each one has made important contributions so society. If you were to ask Jews or Muslims or Hindus or Buddhists (or members of other world religions), they would say their faith too has teachings about goodness, forgiveness, and compassion. And it should also be said that sometimes, Christians have not followed the teachings of Jesus and have instead been guilty of fanaticism or prejudice or indifference to the poor. (The same is true of other faiths as well: the religion offers a set of guidelines about how to live a good life, but first, you have to follow them.) The majority of Christians make a sincere effort to follow the path Jesus laid out for them, and if you asked, they would say they believe Christianity is the right religion for them. ( Full Answer )
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.
Obama's father was Muslim, his mother Christian. There are many cultures who assign the child's birth religion according to the father or to the mother. In America, adopted religion or belief takes precedence, and Obama has lived his life as a church-going Christian.
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..
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 Bible says everybody isborn spiritually dead. Another way of saying this is people don'thave a relationship with/kn…ow God. This is because the first manand woman did not obey God and so their relationship with God - thecreator and sustainer of life - was broken. This is sin. Throughoutthe history of mankind - as told in the Bible - the way for aperson to restore their relationship with God is to acknowledgetheir relationship with God is broken and to offer a sacrifice. .

It is a denomination of Christianity, yes. Not all churches that are of any particular denomination are presently teaching Christian doctrine, so you have to be careful and examine ANY church's doctrine by comparing it to the Bible.
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 )
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 )
Yes. Jesus was Jewish. He was (is) the Jewish Messiah that modern followers of Judaism are still waiting for. In the first century, all of the first followers of Jesus were Jewish.
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. ( Full Answer )
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.

The beginning of almost all religions is obscure and vague, as for the goal; it could range from a money scam to getting together an army without having to force people to serve.
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 )
chistainity evolved after Christ came to earth and died on the cross to save all people from their sins. the Romans saw Jesus as a threat to the empire because of the massive numbers of followers. as an effect the tried to wipe out Christianity by killing all of Jesus' followers.
Jesus the Christ was born 2010 years ago but the Christian religion only began to develop after His death in 33 CE when His disciples began to spread Jesus' teachings.
Roman emperors, almost since the time of Augustus, held absolute and unfettered power over their subjects. So, when the Christian emperor Theodosius proclaimed Christianity to be the official religion of the Roman Empire, this was a fact that could not be argued. When, in 391, he decreed that the pu…blic worship of pagan gods was prohibited, then the temples could no longer function. And when the Christian churches then appropriated the temples and all their property that had not already fallen into Church hands, there was nothing the pagan priests could do. Christianity had grown rapidly throughout most of the fourth century, since Constantine gave this religion state patronage and began the persecution of the pagan temples. By the time of Theodosius, Christians, at least nominally, constituted the majority of the population of the empire, making its eventual declaration as the official religion beyond doubt. It simply took a single-minded individual to take that final step. ( Full Answer )
One thought: Who knows? They're all just a small deviation of the one before the one before, and they all claim to have the correct version. You don't need religion to find God. Another thought: Most likely it would be the original Roman Catholic because this was the pure form of Catholicism… and it was before Luthern, Protestant, or any other deviation of Catholicism. A Scriptural view: Back in Jesus' day, there was only one Christian congregation. IT was called 'the Way' by many (Acts 9:1+2 ) because it was so separate and identifiable by the teachings of Christ. After his conversion, Paul spread Jesus' teachings, saying that ALL Christians should agree " with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought" .(1Corinthians 1:10 NIV) There IS a 'true Christianity' and it is united worldwide in what Jesus taught...but declaring one religion over another here on a public forum will do nothing but inflame and confuse. IF you have a sincere interest in finding the true religion, and are willing to work for it, pray for God's help and he'll direct you. The Bible is God's word, and it says " Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light to my path." (Psalm 119:105 NIV) "Your word is truth" (John 17:17 NASB) This being the case, with an earnest desire for truth, hard work and God's holy spirit, the truth CAN be found using the Bible as your textbook. Jesus said very plainly " "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven....", so discovering 'the will of the father' is important, and can be done through prayer, Bible study and an open mind. One can certainly believe in God by looking at creation...his handiwork is everywhere...but to give back to God what he requires, takes 'a form of worship'. The true 'religion' originally spelled out by God through Jesus, asks that Christians have one faith and meet together to accomplish God's work and to encourage one another. You can find this one faith.(Hebrews 10:24+25)(Matthew 28:19+20, and 24:14) ________________ Roman Catholicism was not corrupted by Protestantism. Historically the Church at Rome began well, only after time did it corrupt itself by abrogating to itself powers that were not given to it of God. Eventually the Roman Church became known as the Roman Catholic Church, the mother church of all churches world wide. The answer to what religion is true religion is plain, it is pure and undefiled before God (Jms.1.27). "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." The above is true religion, which comes from an act of God in convicting men and women of original and personal sin, pardoning them on the grounds of election in Jesus Christ (Eph.1.4), bringing them into the Church of Jesus Christ, to make up the said Church.

Currently the words Christian Science as a religion discovered by Mary Baker Eddy, is Christian. The words Christian science as a means of belief about science as based on a fundamentalist Christian interpretation of the Bible is also Christian. The diversity of the word Christian is not one of rest…riction. When one considers the first use of the word Christian was in Antioch was a freedom from restrictive beliefs imposed on those who believed in One God by Judaism which considered certain people or practices to be "unclean" while Peter was told by God in a vision that "what God has cleansed, that call not ... unclean." Similarly we can say that as one has understanding of God as one God and Jesus as the Christ, then those who hold those beliefs are Christian. Answer 'Christian Science' is not a Christian religion. True Christianity is centred on Christ: get that wrong and it is automatically not a Christian religion. True Christianity [ie not Christian Science] teaches that: . Joh 1:1-3, 14, 29, 35-37, 40-41 MKJV (v.1) In and the beginning was the Word,the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (v.2) He was i n the beginning with God. (v.3) All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. . ...(v.14) And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled [lived] among us. And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father , full of grace and of truth. ... (v.29) The next day John [that is, John the Baptist] sees Jesus coming to him and says, " Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" ... (v.35) Again, the next day afterward, John [that is, John the Baptist] stood with two of his disciples. (v.36) And looking upon Jesus as He walked, he says," Behold the Lamb of God!" (v.37) And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. ...(v.40) One of the two who heard John and followed Him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. (v.41) He [that is, Andrew] first found his own brother Simon and said to him, " We have found the Messiah (which is, being translated, the Christ) ".. In contrast, Christian Science teaches that: . "Jesus is the human man and Christ is the divine ideal" ( SH, 473:15-16) "Not that the human Jesus was or is eternal...not one with the Father...but fleshly....Christ is "the ideal truth", "Divine Idea", "reflection of God". The dual personality (Jesus Christ) continued until the ascension, when Jesus disappeared, while Christ continues to exist in the eternal order of Divine Science taking away the sins of the world." (see SH, 333:32, 334:1). God warns of this:- . 1Jn 2:22-23, 26 GNB (v.22) Who, then, is the liar? It is those who say that Jesus is not the Messiah. Such people are the Enemy of Christ---they reject both the Father and the Son. (v.23) For those who reject the Son reject also the Father; those who accept the Son have the Father also. ... (v.26) I am writing this to [warn] you about those who are trying to deceive you. . (And that is only one of their errors.) Christian Science may call itself 'Christian' but it is not.

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 )
Catholicism is only another form of Christianity, like Lutherian or Baptist. So Christianity is the base religion here, therefore there is no way Catholicism can be older than it's base.

Judism If you're asking who founded Christianity Jesus , who Christians believe is the son of God, the savior, and Messiah; but many of the customs and beliefs of Christianity came from the apostles, most notably St. Paul.

A: No. The Apostle Paul, in his sermon on Mars Hill, noticed an altar to an unknown God. He went on to explain the beliefs of the One and True God to the Athenians. B: Yes. The Christian religion is like the Greek religion in it's flexibility. At the time of Jesus, the Roman empire ruled. Jews …and gentiles lived under Roman rule. The Romans were not athiests. They also believed in gods, but their believes were very very flexible. The Roman theology stemed from the Greek theology. They had many gods, and they (Romans and Greeks) didn't have any strict religious rules that would govern their believes as a whole. For this reason it was easy for the Romans to allow and live with people with other believes. After Jesus died and many years after, the Romans compared Jesus to one of their own Gods. Today the similarities between that god and what we know as Jesus is so strickingly similar that you can help to wonder which came first. Keeping in mind that the people at the time didn't abandon their Roman and Greek theology completely at Christianity's beginnings. ( Full Answer )

This "New Covenant" was primarily for the Jewish people, but God would include Gentiles and in fact when the Jewish people rejected Jesus as the…ir Messiah the Gospel was given to the Gentiles and they readily accepted the free gift of salvation. This "New Covenant" is mentioned in the book of Jeremiah 31:31. Jesus mentions this "New Covenant"/ "New Testament" in Matthew 26:28 ; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20. Christianity is the Will of God and Jesus Christ is the Way. ( Full Answer )
