Christianity: Outside Looking In In the Western part of the world, Christianity is familiar with almost everyone. Many people, at the very least, claim to believe in God in the Western world. But what exactly is Christianity? The obvious answer is, of course, that Christianity is the religion that believes in God and Jesus Christ's sacrifice to save humanity from their sins. There's more to Christianity than this, and shall be discussed in more detail. Specifically, the origins of Christianity and how it became a world religion, what makes Christianity unique, and the differences in the denominations of Christianity shall be discussed.
Let's start with Christianity's origins, and how it came to be a major world religion. Christianity started off as a sect of Judaism in Palestine and Israel in the 1st Century AD, so the first Christians were Hebrew. Christianity then spread to other nations across the Middle East, into Egypt, and the Roman Empire (so
Agnostic Atheist How do you go about proving God's existence or nonexistence? I would like to discuss it because it's usually avoided in polite conversation for good reason. But this essay or rant or whatever is not polite conversation and will probably offend some people.
First of all, how do we prove God's existence? Well, from what I know, there is no hard, empirical evidence that proves God's existence. There isn't any, none, and the Bible obviously doesn't count because it only assumes God exists; it never factually proves that God exists. Miracles don't count either, common sense can even dictate they aren't real. And people that say they know God helped them out can't actually prove it, they just believe that a coincidence was simply an act of God. It's not just limited to beneficial coincidences, some people even believe God punished them for being sinful. Is there any proof that God seems to randomly help or hinder his creations? No, there isn't, only assumptions are made as t

America..... Seriously? I really hate it how people in America are saying that Christianity isn’t right and how they don’t teach in public schools. People all over the world are being killed by governments and military groups for believing in Christianity. ALL OVER THE WORLD. Most of us Christians are sitting around lounging with not a care in the world. We sit around in an eggshell world and if that shell breaks or cracks, we break, just like the egg. We do have a voice, and I’m tired of sitting around and doing nothing. Even though I’m just a senior in high school, the things that I hear on TV, radios, websites, and newspapers have caught my attention. People all over America are starting to say that America isn’t Bible based. This country’s FOUNDATION was firmly planted in the Bible. Athieists try to use the Declaration of Independence against Christianity, but the it uses several quotes that support Christianity. Check this out:
