Worlds religions, that Is exactly what it Is,
religions of the world, Man - made.

Not of God.
---Lawrence on 9/1/10


Christianity is not a religion. Christians follow Jesus, and are a faith group which is based on the Holy Bible. What is different about Christianity is that it has a book that tells the history of humanity. Most religions are based on a human being, but ours is based on the Son of God, prophesied of old, self declared, and accompanied with signs and wonders. There was just one true monotheistic faith in the very beginning, Judaism, and then the Messiah came, and Christianity was born.

The one thing all Christians know and believe
Acts 4:12

Acts 4:10-12
10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 He is " 'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone.

12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

They were first called Christians at Antioch & this was after God's Church was borned on the day of Pentecost. Apostle Peter brought this God given Salvation message Acts 2 v's 37-40 which Fulfills Matt 28 v's 19-20 to the Jewish people FIRST & then Apostle Paul brought this Very Same Salvation Message to us gentiles a lil later.
Everything else is Matt 15 v 9.

stevenq: "There are many "good" people having good intentions, but are not Christian." There are many (correction, most) people who call themselves "Christians" who are not "good" people. I find about the same ratio (good:bad) outside the churches as inside.

ashley: "Steveng: I have one question for you. You just said in your blog that any church formed by man is of satan. That is what you said. You then say you should check out starting your own home based church."

The meaning of the word "church" today is completely different than it was during the first three hundred years of Christianity. I was using today's terminology as a point of reference to research the word "home church" because that's what they're call. The churches in Revelation (and other parts of the NT) are simply locations of Christians, not a denomination, a building, or a non-profit corporation.

It's easier to express myself over a cup of coffee than in a blog, don't you agree?
---Steveng on 8/12/08


The 'Church' is the body of believers. We are commanded to worship and the place where we gather is a church.

I've been a member of three churches in my Christian walk they were/are vital to my Christian growth. We receive much, including vital teaching which informs and keeps us on the Biblical path.

I met and continue to meet with folk who love and serve the Lord. Of course nothing which involves people will be perfect, because of our fallen nature.

Where we now attend we see the love and kindness of Christ shown in the way members serve, love and help one another.

The church isn't any denomination but the meeting of those who follow and serve Him, plus some who attend church out of habit or tradition.
---Warwick on 8/12/08


The gulf between Christianity and the religions is that they are beliefs created by man whilst our mighty God was not created by man but in reality created man.

In human terms that may appear arrogant but that's what Scripture says.

Christianity isn't a religion but the acceptance of ultimate reality. We are the children of the one God who spoke all there is into existence and so loves us that He sent His Son to die in our place, taking the punishment we have earned, that we may be saved and inherit eternity with Him in heaven.

Praise God!
---Warwick on 8/12/08


Do a keyword search for church in an online bible. How do you suppose "[They] had gathered the church together" (Acts 14:27) as meaning buildings or non-profit corporations?
---Steveng on 8/8/08

Have you erased Matthew 16:18 from your Bible?

Jesus said He was building His Church on Peter. Not wood, brick or making materials.

No, He just said He was building His Church on a stable foundation.

Humans, Steveng,
Human beings.
My search for Church turns up as the Church of Jesus Christ, RCC.


So, Catholic or Lutheran or whatever makes to him no difference. They all make him itch.
---Nana on 8/9/08

Yes, you are right.
---Nicole on 8/11/08


Nicole: Yeah, I know.
---jerry6593 on 8/9/08




Nicole and jerry6593,
Steveng indeed is very different. He has had a Church allergy for most of his life. In the "Was Mary Always Sinless" blog, he said: "I was a devote RC, living with a devote RC family,living in a devote RC Italian neighborhood in Chicago. That is until I got my sister and I kicked out of a RC school and eventually forced to leave the neighborhood because I wanted answers to such questions as "why the statues" and "why pray to Mary" - I was nine years old." So, Catholic or Lutheran or whatever makes to him no difference. They all make him itch.
---Nana on 8/9/08


Steveng: I have one question for you. You just said in your blog that any church formed by man is of satan. That is what you said. You then say you should check out starting your own home based church. That is the same as creating your own cult to worship as you see fit. Many people have done that. Remember waco, Texas, Jonestown, Ghana, Warren Jeffs in Utah. Everyone denounced them as being cults because one man took it upon himself to start a church and deceive the people to follow him. Everything you said points in the same direction as those men or are you too naive to see it. I agree that all Protestant faiths were created by men, not God and that is why no two agree, even though everyone has the same bible.
---ashley on 8/8/08


jerry6593: "You can spot them, not by what they say, but by how they treat the "least" among them."

There are many "good" people having good intentions, but are not Christian.
---Steveng on 8/8/08


Nicole : "He truly thinks he is different from all denominations."

I'm not any denomination. Do the two witnesses mentioned in Revelation belong to any denomination? The names of the churches found in the beginning of Revelation are not the names of the churches, but their locations.

"The word Christian is different to him."

There is a huge difference between your definition of the words "christian" and "church" and the definitions found in the Bible. Do a keyword search for church in an online bible. How do you suppose "[They] had gathered the church together" (Acts 14:27) as meaning buildings or non-profit corporations?
---Steveng on 8/8/08


Stevenq: Interesting. I've had somewhat similar experiences. However, I continue to disagree with your statement: "They don't belong to any denomination." I've found that in most every congregation of any given denomination you'll find at least one or two Jesus-loving souls. You can spot them, not by what they say, but by how they treat the "least" among them.
---jerry6593 on 8/8/08

Excellent point!

But, I debated this with him in another topic in several posts.

He truly thinks he is different from all denominations.

The word Christian is different to him.

jerry6593: "Stevenq: Remember, God still has His 7,000... spread about in most all denominations."

They don't belong to any denomination. Being caught up in a denomination is the same as being caught up in Satan's web. In 1993, a couple of Lutheran friends asked me to launch ESL classes (Im Calif. State certified to teach college) for the Lutheran Church. Within a year, God grew our classes to over capacity of 150 students. In 1994, I was asked to preside over the Sunday service the week before Easter because the pastor had to go out of town. The congregation was expecting an Easter sermon, but the Holy Spirit had other plans. I was chased out of the church and within six months, the ESL classes fell to only six students.
---Steveng on 8/6/08


You see, jerry6593, the congregation was expecting the same sermon about Easter that they hear every year for the past 60 years. Every Sunday each member recieves a program: what to sing, when to stand and when to sit, some verse recitation, a small sermon lasting only ten to fifteen minutes, etc. The members of the church were going through some tough times with rumors and hatred. So, for forty five minutes the Holy Spirit used me to talk to the congregation. Two weeks later I was asked to leave. I was led by the Spirit to move to Detroit MI where I stayed April 1994 to April 1997 and was led to Atlanta GA until Sept 2001. I decided to return back to the Los Angeles area because my job in Atlanta was finished and the Spirit wasn't speaking.
---Steveng on 8/6/08


Besides, the two witnesses mentioned in Revelation will NOT belong to any denomination.
---Steveng on 8/6/08


Stevenq: Remember, God still has His 7,000 (so to speak). They are spread about in most all denominations.

Here as opposed worth rereading,
"All the false religions of the world have one thing in common. Their vengeful god is placated only by the sacrificial works of the people.

In the one true religion, the loving Creator willingly gives Himself as a sacrifice to save the people.

I'm glad I'm a Christian!
---jerry6593 on 8/2/08"
---Mima on 8/4/08


All worldly religions (RCC, Lutheran, Methodist, Protestants, Baptists, Mormons, Buddhists, Wiccas, JWs) are all man-made religions originated by Satan. Chruch deniminations do not think in harmony with each other, each having their own traditions, ways of living and Bible interpretations. This is the deception that will deceive the world, even the elect, if that were possible. Doing an online Bible search for "one another" and "each other" proves that today's "churches" failed the Christian, turning Christians into hearers only. There's a huge difference between the "church" of Christ's time and the "church" of today. Search for the benefits of joining or starting a home "church."

It is different because of Jesus..
---melanie on 5/26/08


Elisabeth::If christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Then how do you explain his meaning of "One flock one shepherd" and also all his words and teachings like Matt16:17-19 Jn6 and his body and blood.Reflection would it, not be hard on Him if HE as king of kings had to visit each one individually ,or grant audience individually.?
---Emcee on 5/26/08


Christianity is not a religion..It is a personal relationship with the one true Savior of the World...Jesus Christ...It is accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.It is called being born again...It is Salvation. etc.etc.Religion is all about works and rituals...It was the Religious people who gave Jesus the hardest time when he walked on earth...Religious people always rebel against the Word of God and they always oppose the Word of God.Jesus is the way, The Truth and the Life.
---Elisabeth on 5/25/08


Yes Jody, that's why Christianity must be quickly snuffed out by Gov. It's bad for buisness and hampers the Middle East take over of the U.S. Then there is the fear of this invasion from space where our Lord Jesus Christ and all the forces of the Heavens appear to execute global takeover.
That isn't popular with our athiest society or the Muslums. God is not mocked.. Hold on to your Faith Jody.

Jody explained it well.
---frances008 on 4/30/08


Yes it is different. It is the only religion/way of life ruled by a living saviour who was a sacrifice for our sin and links us directly to God. There is no other way or religion that takes you to our heavenly Father. Others may make a follower FEEL freer or more spiritual but they are not of the God of creation:)They do not save your soul for eternity:)
---jody on 4/29/08


I believe the main differencee between Christianity and other beliefs is that our God is The Creator, who created via His spoken word exactly as in Genesis. Further that the Biblical story makes sense when compared to any other belief including the religion of evolutionism.

Therefore Christianity isn't religion, but ultimate reality, it being the perfect revelation of the one and only God.That same God who came and died in our place that we might inherit forgiveness and eternal life.
---Warwick on 4/25/08


It's indeed a wonderful reality that our God rose again. However Jesus said(luke 16:31)that if people don't listen to Moses and the prophets they won't be convinced if someone rises from the dead. He is saying that Genesis etc is the real historical foundation,as written,for His coming,His death,and resurrection. If we reinterpret Genesis etc away from its straight-forward meaning as historical narrative then we undermine the reality of why He came and won't therefore be convinced even if He rose again.

All the founder of all the other religions in the world are now dead. Christ still lives and loves and protects the members of the flock that God gave him.
---notlaw99 on 4/24/08


The overriding difference between Christianity and all other religious beliefs is, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the dead, thereby proving that God the Father was satisfied. With the Sons sacrifice for our sins. No other religion has a savior that rose from the dead!!!!! Glory hallelujah to the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!
---Mima on 4/24/08


Christianity is not a religion. Religion is a belief where adherents are obligated to fixed rules and regulations. Religion never saved anybody. Christians worship Christ only as their only personal Lord and Savior, and follow only him, and if the person does this they are Christian. "Whosoever will Call upon the Name of the Lord will be saved": Joel 2:32, Zech.13:9, Rm.10:9-13. And by asking him into our lives, God will send the Spirit of Christ into our hearts, crying Papa, Father: Gal.4:6.

All religions are idolatry, all religions, and only faith in Christ saves the sinuous life and converts the soul.

For the Christian, the motive for every thought, word, feeling, act, is to be love for all mankind. Other world religions emphasize power, wealth, and ego.
---Geraldine on 4/21/08


"Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'" (in John 14:9)

The basic is that Jesus Himself is the only way to get into personal relating with God as our Father. But even many people claiming to be Christian are busy with theorizing about what God wants and trying to get themselves to do this . . . without first personally submitting to God and seeing what He really has us doing (o:

Years and years of blogs have been written by those studying comparative religious beliefs. Apologetics, end times, and paganism links are a good place to start, and work your way through them.

The Christianity link and quizes will help you discern the Gospel of Jesus Christ from everything else that is in contrast. Some of it subtle and some of it is in direct contrast to the true Gospel.
---Ted on 4/21/08


Religion is not much different from one to the next- people steeped in hipocracy alienating themselves from the one true God of grace.

Christianity is different because of it's founder who was raised from the grave. Through his death he paid the penalty for all the sin men will do.
Different still, because the life he lived was perfect and became the justification for sinners one and all.
His law is love, salvation in him is sure, and no other religion can claim such a thing.

Rob is correct. The most religious ritualistic religions in the world are, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhist, orthodox Jewish belief and at the sake of sounding like a Catholic basher. The RCC falls in there too. What they have in common is certain duties which fall under the heading of works. Yet blinded by their leaders. They meticulously scrupulously follow blindly. As a Catholic lady once told me when I tried to witness to her, sir. I'll have you to know I just got up from saying my devotionals.
---Mima on 4/21/08


True Christianity has nothing to do with religion, being religous, or the ways of the world.

But True Christianity has everything to do with having an intimate and personal relationship with God through Chtist and Christ alone.

I sometime wonder how many people know there are scriptures that warn us about being or becoming religous.
