God didn't order people to take slaves, He taught the Hebrews and the Levites a better way to treat them.

Technically that’s not the case. The term “Christians” appears in the bible in Acts 11:26. Christians were the first disciples and followers of Christ. There is no reference to the term “Catholic,” anywhere in the bible. The term Catholic shows up in a letter over 100 years after Christ ascended. None of the original disciples ever wrote the term “Catholic.” Jesus never mentions or references the Catholic Church.
So the term “Christians,” appears from the very beginning in Paul and Barnabas ministry in an area that is now Turkey & Syria.
Acts 11:26
King James Version (KJV)
26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
Antioch is about 15 miles inland from the Medeterranean sea, in what today is Turkey, just north of Syria. This city became home to the first Christian church outside of the land of Israel and was the first place in which followers of Jesus were referred to as Christians
The city was founded by Seleucus 1 in 300 BC, and its port, which was called Selecus, was founded at about the same time. Antioch had a population of Greeks from Athens and Macedonia, and also a sizeable Jewish population.
The Romans took it in as part of their empire, and next to Rome and Alexander, it became the third great city of the empire.
After Stephen's martyrdom in Jerusalem, some of the disciples scattered to Antioch and started preaching to the Greeks. When the Christians in Jerusalem heard that many people in Antioch were becoming believers in Christ, they sent Barnabas there, who in turn brought Paul, to help the new converts (Acts 11:19-26).
Paul and Barnabas stayed there for one year, and Paul began and ended his second missionary journey from there. When the prophet Agabus predicted a famine for Israel, the church in Antioch generously sent financial aid to Jerusalem to aid their brethern. Peter also visited Antioch (Galatians 2:11).

He has verbally attacked my husband
He has verbally attacked my sex life
He has verbally attacked my motherhood
And lowest of the low he has lowered himself into the gutter by verbally attacking my children
He, as you, comes on topix to promote his god ideas. The difference is his ideas of christianity are always as sick and perverted and hateful as yours on a particularly bad day.
So in future before jumping in try checking out what is actually happening, it save some fool sticking their foot in you mouth

Yes but you are comparing apples and oranges. 2.3 is not the same as 7, the FACTS and FIGURES tell us that 1.3 % of 2.3 billion is considerably less than 1.2% of 7 billion, actually about 1/3
I.E. Less than is needed to maintain parity
Or you having a brain malfunction?
Let me make it easier for you
Would you prefer 1.2% of a whole cake or 1.3% of 1/3 of the cake
I,e 1.2% or 0.43%
Or put it another way you have a choice
1.2% of 7 billion dollars
1.3% of 2.3 billion dollars
Which would you choose?
And of course the trends in growth tell their own story
Christianity 1970 - 1985 - 1.64%
Christianity 1990 – 2000 - 1.36%
Christinaity 2000 – 2005 – 1,32%
And by you own admission yesterday more recent figures give the rise of christianity at 1.3%
Wrong, Just accept it. We are winning and you are losing.

I did some research into your claim. Your claim is on the same level as unbelievable UFO abductions, Roswell New Mexico UFO Crash site, Dayton Ohio’s Wright Pat AFB holding alien creatures in a secret vault, the authenticating Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster.

Sensational claims with block buster headlines but short on real facts. I noticed you left no references to support your claim. However there seems to be a connection in the Sumerian writings and the Noah’s flood from what I can see.

How does this commonality prove the writings originated from the Sumerians? Because Noah’s flood shows up in two different cultures points that it actually happened. And the descendants of Noah’s family passed the information down several generations. According to the bible every living human being is related to Noah’s family.

The Sumerians had descendants of Noah in their lineage. This explains the commonality with Noah’s flood and any other Old Testament stories. Now for the actual proof that the Old Testament was copied from the Sumerians. There’s not any evidence. Just a lot of speculation from people like yourself who refuse to believe in the Bible.

What I’m saying here is you have an unsubstantiated claim. Just like those who claim to have been abducted by Space Aliens. It has an astounding ring to it but no evidence.

The answer to you question is no. Since we have already concluded that the Catholic Church came 100 years later after Christ died. The term 1prot·es·tant derived from those that broke away in protest from Catholicism. Protestant is a derivative of the word protest.

Members of the early church in the New Testament were commonly referred to as Christians. Acts 11:26

a: any of a group of German princes and cities presenting a defense of freedom of conscience against an edict of the Diet of Spires in 1529 intended to suppress the Lutheran movement

b: a member of any of several church denominations denying the universal authority of the Pope and affirming the Reformation principles of justification by faith alone, the priesthood of all believers, and the primacy of the Bible as the only source of revealed truth; broadly: a Christian not of a Catholic or Eastern church

What are you serious? You have brain damage I think.

Origins
"This detail of a fresco (1481–82) by Pietro Perugino in the Sistine chapel shows Jesus giving the keys of heaven to Saint Peter.

Catholic tradition holds that the Catholic Church was founded by Jesus Christ . The New Testament records Jesus' activities and teaching, his appointment of the twelve Apostles, and his instructions to them to continue his work.[7][8] The Catholic Church teaches that the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles, in an event known as Pentecost, signaled the beginning of the public ministry of the Church"

Christianity was pretty much ordered and developed by the
Emperor Constantine I in the year 315.

Belief is a funny thing to you christards , you believe what you want no matter what the truth is eh?

Christ is the head of the Church. Nowhere in Jesus ministry did he talk about setting up a Pope to rule over the church. Not one of the disciples were ever referred to as “Father,” by any of the church members. It was forbidden.

Matthew 23:8-10
King James Version (KJV)

8. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

9. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

10. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

Amplified Version

Matthew 23:8-10
Amplified Bible (AMP)

8. But you are not to be called rabbi (teacher), for you have one Teacher and you are all brothers.

9. And do not call anyone [in the church] on earth father, for you have one Father, Who is in heaven.

10. And you must not be called masters (leaders), for you have one Master (Leader), the Christ.
