Person A says:. I'm a Christian because I was lovingly pursued by God through His Holy Spirit who spoke to my heart/spirit. I realized I was a sinner and needed a Saviour. I believed what the Bible said, that Jesus Christ was the Saviour I needed, who had paid the penalty for my sin by dying on the… Cross. He then was resurrected, breaking the power of sin and death.. I gave my life to God, and am now seeking to live as Christ did. I have never regretted this life-changing decision which I made 44 years ago. I have great joy, strength and peace because of my relationship with God.. The good changes I have seen in myself and others because of the transforming work of God have confirmed my beliefs many, many times. God has revealed Himself to be a faithful, true, just, good and loving Father despite all of the hardships of this earthly life.. I highly recommend Christianity as revealed in Jesus Christ to everyone!. Person B says:. I'm going to try and give the totally clinical, objective response here. The reasons why some individuals hold to the Christian faith are the same as for any person that holds any kind of belief. There are one's upbringing, personal experiences, and developed personality. Your parents, or whoever might have raised you, had a tremendous impact on your current beliefs. Not so simple as "my parents are Christians and they taught me to be", but they were a symbol to you of what that religion stood for. If you had bad parents that professed to Christianity and justified their actions through that, you might discount the faith because you have that experience of Christianity failing to provide goodness into your life. Or you may have good Christian parents who brought you up in the faith, and you feel content in that. There are an infinite number of variables and scenarios regarding your upbringing, but it's undeniable that your impressionable early childhood can sway your adult thought patterns and values in such a way as to make a religion a safe haven of faith and spiritual comfort, or a fool's delusion. Your personal experiences can effect it as well. If one who perhaps never truly considered religion found occasion to pray, perhaps for the safety or health of a loved one, and those prayers were answered in a common or less so manner, that may influence once to believe in a faith. Alternatively, unanswered prayers might have the opposite effect. Once again, these are the simplest of situations, and an actual life has so many variables and different scenarios as to make it impossible to list them, but it may be seen that personal experiences can lead one to or away from a faith. Lastly, consider the mind you mold during your life. Some psyches are certainly more welcoming to faith than others. Life may have brought you up to value pride in oneself, to believe in the power your own hands wield and the works you can create. If so, the humility and acknowledgment of inferiority to an Almighty in Christianity may not sit well with you. Or you may well indeed be accepting of the idea of a super being, one who accepts your flaws and grants unconditional love, one with whom you can rest your problems and worries, and find peace. There are variables uncountable as to why somebody might eventually find faith in Christianity to be an integral part of their life, and just as in any religion or lack thereof, it's more up to the individual to evaluate other individuals based on what they know rather than what they might deduct based on something so amorphous as faith.

I was convinced at an early age that the man Jesus Christ is theSon of God. In my studies and teachings as an adult the evidenceavailable today clearly supports this truth. I chose to followJesus Christ's teachings and try to follow his way of life which isoutlined in the Bible. Though I may fail at… this on a daily basisJesus Christ is true to his word concerning His forgiveness which Ipersonally ask for every day. Accepting God's love for you ( JesusChrist ) is a wonderful thing. Everyone should give Him thatchance. I just want to say that I'm not the same person who wrote theabove. Life is cruel isn't it? I mean, would you say that you havebeen living in a happily ever after story? This is why you shouldaccept Him in your heart, to have a happily ever after even whenthere are problems. Personally, I am a Christian because I have apersonal relationship with God, not because I call myself one. Thismeans that I accepted Him. I decided to give my life to Him becauseI was in so much pain and with him there is only peace which bringsjoy. When I was 9 years old I wanted to get out of this world (thisis something I'm not proud of). Soon though, my family and I beganto go to church. You wouldn't believe how many joyful people stoodup each morning just to come and sit and sing and listen and readthe Bible. I wanted that joy! now, thanks to Him, I have that joyevery single day! Because I love the Lord! I believe that there is a God in heaven. Why else would there bethis wonderful world we live in. Atheists seem to think that theBible was made from some people that wanted to start something likeBuddha. I almost read the Bible everyday and it is there to make usas people better Christians. When I was a child I wanted to be ableto spread the Word of God and have people saved. I don't see howpeople aren't scared to go to hell. It is almost mentionedeverywhere you turn! Somehow the Bible is called a "fake" which Idisagree with. And all the promises He gives us are awesome. Ithink that if anyone read Romans 8:38-39 " I am persuaded that nordeath, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, northings present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor anycreature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, whichis through Christ Jesus our Lord." That they will not let anyone oranything get in the way of it. God has His arms out to you. He wants you to come up and live withHim; that's why you need to get saved! God is always watching youfrom heaven. He is there 24/7 no matter if you feel it or not. Heis and He is always watching you. As a Christian I have learnedthat the hard way, my family just went through a death and I feltthat God had left me and my sadness turned into hatred. I went intotherapy and was asked " Are you a Christian?" I broke down crying,I had turned my back to God and put myself in His place. I am aChristian because it became clear to me that being religious andhaving all the right answers intellectually is just nonsense as allour righteousness and cleverness is 'filthy rags' - I realized it'sall nothing when I came to face the reality of the loving person ofJesus Christ. He changed my life in many ways and still is. He hasnever once let me down or forgotten me, although I regularly failHim. His word is absolute truth and able to be tested. Through itHe changes lives and its truth provides answers to the questions oflife and the future. Well, first off, I would like to say that I can kind of see why youwouldn't believe in Christianity (or any religion, for thatmatter). The essence of any religion is lack of proof, in believingin something you can't be sure of. Remember how, when you were akid, you believed in Santa, even though there was no proof? Well,it's kinda the same thing (with obvious differences, of course,since Santa isn't real). However, if you only truly believe inthings you've seen with your own eyes, then religion would appearto be a "load of rubbish" as you put it. But, riddle me this: haveyou ever directly seen a black hole? Have you ever seen an atom?While I am guessing here, the answer is probably "no." But youstill believe in them, even though you haven't seen them with yourown eyes. Now, I'm not a particularly religious person (I don'tattend church every Sunday,) and I do agree that while somethings in Christianity do appear to be impossible, it doesn't meanthat they necessarily are.

Opinion I have learned over time that the church does not follow the bibleI was taught, the one where people are instructed to love theirneighbors before themselves. Everyone may have their own opinionsbut mine are that if there is a god (which I do not think ispossible), then as long as I am a good… person in this life she willhonor me. It is my experiences that shaped my beliefs and those ofmy friends. Everyone should make their own choices so thinkcarefully and look into many religions before you decide which oneis best for you. The right question would be: "Why are you aChristian?". If you knew why you are a Christian, it would becomevery easy for you to understand why most people on Earth are not. Opinion Because reading the Bible made it more and more apparent to me thatthis could be no more the word of God then anything else written.It has too many statements to prove that it was written by a groupof people that simply had no concept of modern Science andtherefore should not be trusted as the word of a God. If oneunderstands this to be true of any part of the Bible then anintelligent person must become skeptical of other parts as well. Ilater came to terms with the fact that there is nothing more toreligion, in general, than just trying to believe something becauselife can make a complex and lonely. We are the only animal inexistence that is this complicated so we often wish for anotherlife form that we can relate to so we start making things up todeal with this fact. Opinion My mother decided it would be wrong to baptize me, so she left meto decide for myself later in life. I was later taught Christianvalues in school, but although I could sympathize with some values,I came to the conclusion that I would not be part of the systemsurrounding Christianity, a system which I hold responsible forendless evils. I am also appalled by the way some shady creatures seek shelter inthat religion, drawn in by a notion of being able to be forgivenfor all sorts of misdeeds. I have concluded that there is no god,and that there is no afterlife. Sometimes this is a very lonely andscaring thought that make me feel like an infinitely small speck inthe universe, but it is also a great freedom. I also find comfortin the views of Sami shamanism, which states that all things areconnected in some sense. Opinion I remember the day i stopped being a Christian. The church decidedto show a video about how you can only get in to heaven if you knowof Christ. it basically boiled down to that it was the guy's bestfriend's fault he could not get in because his friend never toldhim about Christ. it made me so angry! how could a supposedlyloving god, forsake a good person over some thing SO trivial. so iasked "what about the people who do not have a chance to hear ofhim, or the ones where it is not a viable option?" and theresponse? "every one hears of Jesus" so i said "that is impossible"and they replied "no, every one hears about him!" that was the dayi started looking at things my own way. as i got older i came tothe conclusion that humans wrote the bible, and even if it wasoriginally dictated by God, humans messed it up. i will never be aChristian again. Opinion My reasons for steering clear of Christianity are many, but threepredominate: . Firstly, the Abrahamic god is rather harsh, and yet we aresupposed to believe He is kind and loving. In the Bible, what arecalled the hard passages, God is unyielding in the atrocities Hecommits, from commanding genocide to nuking entire cities. Bycomparison, the Geneva Convention, demonstrates the morality thathumankind can conceive is at a higher standard than is held by thebiblical deity. . Secondly, the Bible, often considered the divinely inspiredliteral word of God, is frequently confusing and contradictory,which explains why there are so many denominations, and yet almostall of them dictate Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus (No salvationoutside [their] church) which is an absurd standard by which a godwould judge His creation. I have yet to encounter a ministry thatdoes not make liberal use of parsing and interpretation to mold theword of God to its own end, i.e. of all the abominations in the OldTestament, homosexuality is the only one that continues to berecognized. Similarly, Jesus advocates prayer in private: on themountain, in the field, in the closet. Not one church acknowledgesthis, as it is contrary to organized religion. . Thirdly, and I must admit this is rather prejudicial of me, butcontemporary Christians as they conduct themselves in the media andonline are not folks on whom I would want to model my own behavior.This is partly due to the increased visibility of obnoxiousness,but the frequency by which I see judgment and damnation to hellfireand the ferocity with which I see pundits and politicians try tobreach the wall of separation and inflict their Procrustean valuesupon the rest of society, frankly, makes me cringe even to bewished Merry Christmas, or God Bless. I'd rather not have theholiday at all, and have Evolution taught in schools, and therights of gays and women honored. Opinion Not only am I not Christian but I am increasingly worried howChristian fundamentalism closes many people off in their own mindsfrom accepting obvious scientific findings. It may not beabsolutely obvious to the layperson how old the Earth is, but todismiss the fact that tectonic drift takes place - to determinedlyignore the glaringly obvious fit between South America and Africa(as some do) is to deny one any logic. To have the idea thatpreconceived religious ideas better scientific breakthroughs showsan unwillingness to accept logic itself, which is very worrying. Opinion I am not Christian or any other religion because I use logic andcritical thinking skills. I have read the entire Bible, most parts of it several times, andhave sought explanations for everything that could be proof of aGod. When carefully studied, the Bible itself becomes proof thatGod does not exist ,rather than proof that he does. Opinion Because I am an American and I have the right to choose whether ornot to believe in anything, and frankly I think it is infuriatingthat people are so easily willing to demean other people that don'tbelieve in, "ALMIGHTY GOD". Opinion I am not a Christian because I am incredibly indecisive, and wouldlike a half-hour chat with any god or gods I end up devoting myselfto, in order to clear up some points. Opinion Because I am part of another religion. Opinion Because [the Christian] god is a propagandist figure someone or agroup created before history can remember. Opinion Because I choose to not believe in imaginary things. The same reason why I don't believe in Santa Claus and Spiderman;they are both the creation of men. Opinion Because God is just a character from ancient times.There is toomuch going against Christianity. I'm not just going on faith. Opinion Because I believe that Christianity is just an idea and belief thatpeople support in order to seek comfort form their ignorance of theunknown. It is natural for human beings to be afraid of the unknowndue to survival instincts and therefore to try and seek safety inthe form of false or pretense knowledge. Opinion I made up my own mind about what I believe because what theCatholic church was teaching just didn't sit quite right with me. Iresearched other religions, found one that better reflected what Ibelieve to be right as well as making more sense to me, and I'm nowa happy pagan with no intention of going back. And for the record,religious and the ability to use logic, reason and criticalthinking skills are not mutually exclusive. Opinion The real question should really be why are you not any of the otherthousands of religions out there. Christianity is only one religionone that many are born into. This many religions all claiming thatthey are the one true religion is one of the strong reasons I amnot Christian. I was born that way. I think most of us are... but some of ussuccumb to teaching and/or training. The proper question is not "why am I not a Christian", the questionis "why are you?" Opinion Any and all religions are a matter of personal conviction, that is,of 'being convinced' of it's truth. A religion does not necessarilyhave to be true in reality in order for a person to be convinced inhis or her own mind that it is true. People who are not Christiansare not convinced to their personal satisfaction that Christianityis true. Rather they are convinced of the opposite. Opinion I was never given a good reason to be a Christian. Every timesomeone tried to give me a reason to become a Christian it onlyfurther convinced me that that was not who I was. Opinion I have read the "holy bible" cover to cover. It is flawed isseveral hundred places, contradicts itself at least 30 times, andit was just flat out wrong in at least 25. The more I read it, the more I doubted it. I can think for myself,and like the person above me said, i don't need an invisible friendto control my life and my actions for me. I don't believe it'sright to condemn people of other religions (Hindus, Buddhists,Muslims, etc) because they don't believe in the same invisibleavenger that you do. Opinion The question,"Why are you not a Christian", is basically the sameas asking,"Why do you not worship Zeus" ? Or any other of thethousands of gods that have ever existed. Clarence Darrow, whodefended John Scopes in the Dayton Tennessee "monkey trial" forteaching evolution said, "I don't believe in God because I don'tbelieve in Mother Goose". Every Christian is an atheist when itcomes to all the other gods that have ever been worshipped. Thedyed-in-the wool atheist just goes one god further. Opinion Because I'm sticking with my tradition, which is the original:Judaism. ( Full Answer )

My point of view in a short statement : It's about living in peace , loving our Father with our heart soul and mind and praising Jesus for giving us victory over flesh and the the principalities of darkness. Excepting eternal life in peace with Our (Abba) Father and Jesus sitting at His right side a…nd all the heavenly host.

ANSWER: A Christian is a follower of Christ. In the original, theword Christian was coming from Christ and even in English bears aresemblance. The word not only meant that, but it meant also :being like Christ. The Bible teaches that if you want a life withGod, free from sin and have eternal life yo…u have to become afollower of Christ (John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but byme."). To become a Christian you need to accept Jesus who sacrificedHimself on the Cross as your Savior from sin and Lord of your life.You confess your sins to God, and repent from them. That is thestart of your life as a Christian. Then you develop your relationwith God by listening to Him. You need to know His will fromreading the Bible and praying. In the Christian life there is alsosinging to God, praise, fellowship and others things described inthe Bible. Christianity does not mean blind faith in some conceptof a distant God but a close relationship with a loving God and aSavior God. Some people believe a Christian is someone who has followed a planof salvation involving: 1. Romans 10:17 (hearing the message), 2.Hebrews 11:6 (believing the message), 3. Luke 13: 3 (repenting), 4.Romans 10:9 (confessing "Jesus is Lord" publically 1 Timothy 6:12)5. Acts 2:38 (getting baptized) 1 Peter 3:21. They believe you aresaved by God's grace, and your faith, plus baptism. Colossians 2:12Ephesians 2:8 we are saved by God's grace. Formula: your faith +God's grace= salvation. Jesus extended the invitation to be his follower, saying: "Ifanyone wants to come after me, let him disown himself and pick uphis torture stake and continually follow me." (Matthew16:24) Thosewho are true Christians have full faith that Jesus Christ is God'sSon, the Promised Seed who sacrificed his human life as a ransom,was resurrected and exalted to the right hand of God, and receivedauthority to subdue his enemies and vindicate Jehovah'ssovereignty. (Mt 20:28; Lu 24:46; Joh 3:16; Ga 3:16; Php 2:9-11;Heb 10:12, 13) Christians view the Bible as the inspired Word ofGod, absolute truth, beneficial for teaching and discipliningmankind. Christian means Christlike, so Christians imitate to thebest of their ability to be like Jesus Chris. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- That is a good question, what the hell is a christian?

Christianity originated in the Middle-East as a sect of Judaism. However, it quickly became a separate religion with separate teachings and spread itself throughout the world. Yet even today, there are quite a bit of similarities between Judaism and Christianity, owing to Christianity's roots.

Opinion Christianity exists because there are many people who attest to andhave experienced the truth of Christ and his message, whether it bethe intellectual, historical, archaeological, or scientific truthpresented in the Bible. They find no need to suspend rationalthinking or intelligence in orde…r to believe because all harmonizeperfectly. Many are involved in fulfilling the Great Commission ofbringing the message of Christ's amazing work and presence to allpeople, despite intolerance and persecution against them and themessage. Christianity came about because of sin in the garden of Eden. Yousee in the beginning God made everything very good. But because ofAdams disobedience sin came into the world.

All of us have take somethingthat wasn't ours that is stealing even if it were a paper clip.Most of us have hated someone and if we have hated someone then wehave actually committed murder in our hearts.

Aksum began a long slow decline after the 7th century due partly to Islamic groups contesting trade routes. Eventually Aksum was cut off from its principal markets in Alexandria, Byzantium and Southern Europe and its trade share was captured by Arab traders of the era.

Axum was the center of the marine trading power known as theAksumite Kingdom, which predated the earliest mentions in Roman erawritings. Around 356 CE, its ruler was converted to Christianity byFrumentius.
It left behind a lasting religious achievement with Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity, stone architecture, and terrace farming.
Could Muslims and Christians agree on a revised Holy Trinity and settle their differences relating to the Bible and Qur'an?
No. This violates both religions.One tenet of almost every religion is that the religion must not be changed. The Bible even provides a penalty (in the last chapter of the last book) for anyone trying to change it. Posted by jrnjames: It's not Logical that religions cannot be changed, when new ev…idence is recognized. Posted by MidiMagic: Religion is based on belief, not logic or evidence. But in the case of Christianity, there are no contradictions between Biblical beliefs and the evidence produced by real science. Only where bad science has been used is there any contradiction. - The earth circling the sun is not a violation of any Christian tenet. Catholic belief used to accept Aristotle as fact. Aristotle believed in impetus physics and a geocentric universe conceived by Ptolemy. But Aristotle is not a Christian source. - There is nothing in the Scriptures that requires the earth to be only a few thousand years old. There is no time period given between the time of creation and the time when man fell and became mortal. - Evolution is not proved science, but only a theory. - Homosexuality is not hereditary. Bad science was used to "prove" hereditary homosexuality. ( Full Answer )

As a 13 year old atheist how do I settle conflicts about religion with some of my best friends who are Christian?
Opinion The problem you face is that many Christians simply assume they are right and therefore all others must be wrong. This is a problem you share with many millions of Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Daoists and others around the world. For some of your friends, it is probably a bonus that you 'b…ite' when antagonised. If you choose to debate with your Christian friends, you must remember that, although they may be no better informed at a fundamental level than you are, they have the resources of the churches to provide them with glib and plausible arguments and responses. Unless you have similar resources available to you, or are much better informed about theology, you will not win many debates. What is good is that you still refer to them as "best friends", which means that neither you nor your friends have allowed your different worldviews disturb your friendships. Simply let it be known that you remain an atheist but you no longer wish to debate religion with them; you realise that neither side will convince the other and that you value their friendship more than silly arguments. You may find that, as they grow older, some of your Christian frriends will cease to hold Christian views anyway. Actually, as a 13 year old atheist myself, i think you should just avoid debates. Agreeing with the person above, most people that are willing to debate you about religion are very firm believers and are not willing to admit that they are wrong. Obviously, this isn't true for everyone, I have a very diverse and logical group of friends. Among us, debates are more for entertainment and to learn new things. It depends on the people. If they are the kind to simply say "God knows the answer" when they loose a debate, then they are not likely to accept that they have lost or change their views. It's not like that with my freinds and I, but whatever. We are Atheists, agnostics, Muslims, Jews, christians and satanists. Personally I'm an atheist that is slightly pagan, but i consider myself atheist. Anyway, my suggestion would be to do some research and admit you don't know when you lose a debate. ( Full Answer )
The pillars of Aksum were built. Their purpose was to celebrate great victories and achievements. The writing on them stated what great things had been done.
Christianity is this-- Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved. Its not a religion as we would commonly understand it. It is believing in God through Christ and that brings about a change in people. The history has its ups and downs but the religion teaches morals.
The Kingdom of Aksum was an empire located around modern Ethiopia that lasted from about 100 A.D. to 940 A.D. The kingdom reached many important milestones, and achieved a multitude of things, including a written alphabet. The Kingdom of Aksum was also the first in Africa to fully convert to Christi…anity, which lead to the present-day Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church. The Kingdom was also known for being the first African state to issue its own system of coins as currency. ( Full Answer )
You have to believe and trust in Jesus with all your strength and soul, he is the only way to heaven. And believe in God in three persons, God,Jesus and The holy Spirit. ANSWER: 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath gi…ven to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he [God; The Father] hath made him [Jesus Christ; God's only begotten son, God in the flesh] to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. God has forgiven the sins of the world (everyone; past, present, future) thru the finished cross work of Jesus Christ, so the issue is not our sins, but what we do with the Son; the Savior. Righteousness is the issue. By believing these good news, you're identified with and joined to the Savior himself; his test scores written on your paper. You can't tell if someone someone is saved, based on their performance, appearance and so forth.

Answer # 1 That depends on whether the other parties involved in the issue are Christians themselves. And it depends on if the Christian is the one who wronged the other person involved in the issue. If the other party are Christian(s) or Jews (Hebrews): The issue is settled as brothers of a …family, according to Hebrew law (10 commandments and the law of the book of Leviticus, minus the blood sacrifices. All Christians are under their King, Christ and therefore must act as such as family members settling their issues according to the law of their King and in brotherly love toward one another. Knowing you are individuals under the same King and using forgiveness and brotherly love are the key to Christians working out issues between each other. Christians are expected to provide an example to the world of how they behave and act toward one another. Christians are supposed to show great respect for each other, their King (Christ) and their Father (Lord God of Israel). True Christians, are supposed to be a shining example to the remainder of the world of how they act toward one another based upon the Law of their King and their Father. Behavior not in accordance to the law, can be overcome through forgiveness. If the other party are not Christian, or Jewish (Hebrew): In this case then the person who is Christian always acts in accordance with the 10 commandments, they must be an example of a true Christian. However since the other party is not Christian or Jewish (Hebrew), then the Christian can not settle the issue under Levitical law and must therefore turn to the courts systems of the land in which they live to get the matter settled, if it can not be settled privately. Acting under the 10 commandments, gives the Christian credibility as they are not going to lie or deceive others, nor can they falsely accuse other involved in the issue (10 commandments). Other parties who are not Christians might lie, and cheat, in order to get their way before a court of men. Christians should not get discouraged in this, as it is not their point to win every single case in a court of mans law, its the point of a Christian to clear what is written in the book of life against their name (Revelation 20). Further note about Mans laws: Christians might not be treated fairly by the courts of men in every single case, however its the point of a Christian to be accounted for in the book of life, as having done that which is right (good works), even to the point of persecution by others. Christians should always keep in mind what is written in Revelation chapter 20, which is we are all judged according to our works. Christians must always keep their slate clean (writings against their name in the book of life), in order for their soul to rest with our Father and Christ in the next earth age (2nd Peter chapter 3). As long as Christians know their actions are according to the law (10 commandments and the Laws of Leviticus), then even if they loose in the court of mans law, they have won in our Fathers court, which is held at the end of the Millennium (Revelation 20, Christ's 1000 years of teaching). Forgiveness, and good works, keep the slate clean in the book of life, next to each persons name. Everyone faces judgment as its written in Revelation 20. No one escapes this judgement, not those souls which have passed from flesh life. All are souls are judged at that point in time. We are in this flesh on probation, and Christians need to keep that in mind, always. Answer # 1 ends ( Full Answer )
Because i went to mcdonalds and my grandmother fought over the counter with a lightsaver and stole 9 happy meals, which is why trade is an important part to the aksum community
Aksum became a major trading hub and meeting place. Trade goodscame to this area from Arabia, Persia, India, and other parts ofAfrica.
Because it was a long and slow process, the concrete causes of thedecline of the Aksumite kingdoms are inconspicuous. The underlyingcause of its decline is the shift of power southward. After thePersians ended Ethiopian involvement in southern Arabia and theIslams replaced the Aksumites in the Red S…ea, Amda Tseyon's andZara Yakob's campaigns into southern lands proved to be permenentsettlements. Until Adulis suffered a destructive attack in the middle of the 7thcentury, the Aksumites exported ivory, incense, tortoise-shell, andobsidian and they imported clothing, glass, iron, and weapons fromEgypt, India, and Arabia (Pankhurst 23). But as Islamic expansionsgrew in the Red Sea and overpopulation and over-cropping wore downthe once fertile land, Aksum's presence in the seashores began todiminish. Trade with other countries, however, did continue, buttrading ports that were located much more southern had become moreprominent. The power shift into southern regions had become necessary oncedeforestation and degradation had taken its toll on the land. Whileforests were being cut down for construction and irregular rainfalleroded the soil, Aksumite agriculture began to collapse. The powershift southwards was also influenced by revolts occurring insurrounding areas, most notably by the Beja tribes from the north. Ethiopia'expeditions into south Arabia territories played a role inweakening its troops (Henze 44-6). ( Full Answer )
Christian Perspective: Christianity is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as presented in the New Testament as the continuation of the Old Testament revelation to the Ancient Israelites. Most Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God, fully divine and ful…ly human, the savior of humanity prophesied in the Old Testament, and and that He will again return as promised. Consequentially, Christians refer to Jesus as Christ or Messiah and the term "Christianity" itself is a derivative of "Christ". There are currently 2.2 billion Christians in the world and growing, making Christianity the largest religion in the world. Islamic Perspective: . Christianity is Islam (or submission to God) per the Bible God revelation to Jesus. . Jesus is referred to as Christ or Messiah. . Christianity is one of the Abrahamic religions; namely Judaism, Christianity, and Islam per Qur'an God revelation to prophet Muhammad. Christianity is an Abrahamic religion. It is also a monotheistic religion, although its Trinitarian doctrine is seen by Muslims as non-monotheistic. Adherents believe in the Bible, and that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, and that He will return as promised. Different Christian Sects There are five major sects in Christianity and some say even more, but the easiest way to break up Christianity is into these five categories: Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, Eastern, and Mormon. Each of these groups believe the other groups are failing in their attempt to reach proper salvation through the Christ and as such have their own methods of attaining this goal. Orthodox Christianity is the one of the oldest Christian Sects in the sense that it represents a fragment of the original Church and holds many doctrines in common with Catholicism as concerns the Sacraments. The disagreement between the Orthodox and Catholic is over leadership. The Orthodox maintain that the Church is a community of Patriarchs all with equal standing as opposed to a Pope with supreme power over all cardinals. Orthodox are most famous for praying with icons. There are several movements in Orthodox Christianity, the most famous being the Greek Orthodox and the Russian Orthodox, but there are also Georgian Orthodox, Bulgarian Orthodox, Slavic Orthodox, and Eastern Orthodox. Catholicism is also one of the oldest Christian Sects in the sense that it represents a fragment of the original Church. Catholics hold that all seven sacraments are necessary to be saved along with the proper Eucharist. Catholicism also has several co-equal rites such as the Roman Rite (the most popular), the Byzantine Rite, the Slavic Rite, and so on. All Catholics (and exclusively Catholics) recognize the infallibility of the Pope on certain matters and the Pope's rule over Christendom. Protestantism incorporates a wide variety of different movements and in certain cases, different sects in its umbrella. As a result, it is hard to pin down Protestantism. It formed as a rejection of Catholic doctrine in some cases, especially as concerns Calvinists and Lutherans or Catholic power in some cases, especially as concerns Anglicanism/Episcopalianism and Presbyterianism. As Protestant doctrines most often derive from the idea that the Bible should be the only source of Christian belief, differing interpretations of the Bible have made Protestant movements most prone to splitting. New Protestant movements are being created all of the time, with the Evangelical Movement among the fastest growing forms of Christianity. Most African-Americans ascribe to Protestant movements such as the Baptist Church. Mormonism is a uniquely American form of Christianity (that is to say it embodies many American cultural ideas and American locales not that exclusively Americans are Mormons). Mormonism holds the Divine Revelation extended beyond the Biblical Period, resulting in additional Testaments of His Will. The most famous of these new documents is the Book of Mormon. Additionally Mormons believe that Divine Revelation continues into the present day and the Elder Mormon Leadership has partial access to Divine Knowledge in order to arbitrate Questions of the Faith. Many Christians outside of Mormonism consider Mormonism to be a heresy as it does not hold to the Nicene Creed's understanding of the Trinity. The Eastern Christian Churches are not a uniform group of churches, but this group represents all of the Churches of the Old World that do not fit neatly into the categories of Orthodox, Catholic, or Protestant. These churches include the Armenian Apostolic Church, the Egyptian Coptic Church, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and the early Christian Heretical Religions (such as the Nestorians and Justinians). What makes these Christian sects unique is different in every case. The Ethiopians have additional holy books and a unique liturgy, the Coptics hold to Monophysite Heresy, the Armenian Church did not join with the Early Patriarchs of the Church, and so forth.
