Christianity is a monotheistic, Abrahamic religion founded on the teachings and life of Jesus of Nazareth. It is the world’s biggest religion, with nearly 2.4 Billion followers. One of its most important revelations is that God is one. Each person in the heavenly realms is associated with a star, each day carrying their name. Christians believe this to be the reason for the existence of the universe and the existence of time.
Christianity was officially recognized by the Roman government during the 3rd Century. In order to gain support from the Roman government and eventually gain power as a fully fledged state, many churches were constructed in different regions throughout the country. After the first three decades of Christianity being established, converts to Christianity began pouring into the country in increasing numbers. The growth of Christianity gave rise to a number of influential figures in European history. Among these people were the reformed bishops, popes, and the English king Henry VIII who sent a force to Ireland to spread the Christian religion.
The modern Christian church is governed by the teachings of its founder, and are considered to be a mainstream religion in much of the Western world. Christianity believes in the concept of salvation, and the atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross. They also believe in the idea of free will, predestination, and God’s rule over the universe. They differ mostly on issues such as belief in the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the salvation of all mankind, and the need for universal salvation which they believe will happen when the sun sets. Most Christian beliefs are commonly referred to as denominations but there are also individualistic beliefs shared by some believers.
