Christianity is an Abrahamic religious religion, also known as the religion of Jesus. It is the largest religious community in the world, with around 2.4 Billion followers worldwide. The basic beliefs of Christianity are that: Everyone in the world is God in disguise, humans are mortal and God is almighty. This is the most popular belief among Christians, however the Bible also portrays Jesus as the Son of God, and the Redeemer. Many Christians also believe that salvation is available to everyone, though salvation is not a Christian concept, the majority of Christians do have this concept in their minds.
A major influence of Christianity was the Roman Catholic Church, which itself was founded by Constantine. The Roman Catholic Church stressed the message of Christ being the Son of God, and that He had come into the earth to save humanity from sin. Many scholars have argued that Constantine’s religious views (notably his Babylonian expedition) led to the decline of the Roman Empire, and the spread of Christianity.
Christianity has continued to grow as many other religions have, even after the spread of the Roman Catholic Church. It has experienced an upturn in growth in modern times, due to social changes. It has experienced a resurgence in popularity, mainly in Europe, where the economic recession has spurred social change. There is also a growing appeal for Christianity among women. As people look to return to a ‘time-honored’ tradition, Christianity is flourishing.
