There are over 2.4 Billion Christians around the world, making Christianity the largest organized religion in the entire world. It is a faith that was started by the Greek Orthodox Church and has developed branches in almost all major countries of the world. Its main aim is to spread the word of God to as many people as possible, by any means necessary. Some people call it a “people’s religion” because of its tolerance towards other religions, such as Islam.
Christianity believes that salvation is through the grace of God, therefore being a god fearing individual is not a sin in the eyes of God. There is no heaven or hell in this belief, only God. Jesus Christ is the son of God, and the founder of Christianity. Other important beliefs of Christianity include the belief in one gods’ plan for the universe and the idea of salvation from eternal suffering.
The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is a key part of the Christian religion and is considered a vital part of Christian life. The crucifixion is thought to be the taking of one person’s life on the cross, during which their body was torn apart in order for the sins of the world to atone for them. Most Christians believe that there is a Hell, but most do not think that it actually pains anyone. The taking of the cross is thought to be an act of sacrifice by which they atone for the sins of their ancestors.
