Ok today PONDER WHAT DID WE HAVE before any religions? how about before man could read? how did we make it to here from there?
research will find it was practiced world wide and before Jehovah came, before Mahamad came and yes even before the Christed One, Jesus, came....the world practiced .........LIVING IN HARMONY WITH ALL THAT IS UPON MOTHER EARTH.
Since everyone wants to claim First and Right Religion, knock yourself out....I am practicing shamanism and I do believe the White Buffalo Calf Woman came BEFORE all of those men were born and before any religions were founded.
Wado, and Thank you Rabbeen for your support of embracing our diversities and finding #Solutions 'for the good of the ALL"
meanwhile back to my real job.....praying for all of Mother Earths Inhabitants, not just the two-leggeds, for balance and harmony in a place of faith hope and love. I highly suggest trying it. beats arguing a dead horse that new technology is proving and disproving daily......these days.

The disciples of Jesus founded the Christian Church and the first church was in a house of one of the followers.

Christians were persecuted in the days of the early Church. I will not give the complete history but within the lifetimes of the people of Jesus generation (his early followers) most of them died for their belief in Jesus because the Jews believed Christians to be guilty of blasphemy for believing that Jesus was the Son of God. That is also the reason why the Jews demanded the crucifixion of Jesus.

Christian people were fed to the Lions in the Roman Arena and that included little children.

However, not all of the Jewish people thought Jesus blasphemous because the people who had seen his miracles and heard his sermon on the Mount, became his followers too!

There Is a Green Hill Far Away

1. There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.

2. We may not know, we cannot tell
What pains He had to bear;
But we believe it was for us
He hung and suffered there.

3. He died that we might be forgiv'n,
He died to make us good,
That we might go at last to Heav'n,
Saved by His precious blood.

4. There was no other good enough,
To pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of Heav'n and let us in.

Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved,
And we must love Him too;
And trust in His redeeming blood,
And try His works to do.

All religions are inherently war-driven activities. All religions are inherently destructive forces.

Christianity is not spread by the sword. In the past Christianity has fought Islam to retain the lands that were Christian but it did not succeed in Egypt and Syria and Afghanistan, and these Lands are now Islamic. In Europe, Spain and Italy, Greece was under attack from Islam through the sword of Islam but Christianity fought back and retained these Lands. When l say that Christians fought back and won, l am explaining that the Christian people who were being attacked and oppressed to convert to Islam, we Christians managed to save them and chase off Islam as Christians did not want to become Muslims.

To this day, Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims for not wanting to become Muslims. Christian people are not fighting Islam to defend those people.

Christianity is not spread by the sword and there is no directives in the Bible for Christians to fight violently to spread the Word of God and the Bible is not pressed onto reluctant people who don't want it.

Islam is spread through oppression at best and violence at worse including beheadings and Islam has always operated and spread in the past and in the present and probably in the future by the physical sword. Muslims also use coersion and persuasion as all tools are used as a means to spread Islam and occupy a people and their Lands.

Christianity is not the same as Islam and it truly is the Religion of Pacifists and Peace. Islam only purports to be a religion of peace.

Religions are not life-focused. The primary focus of all religions is death.
