    What is the sum total of Christianity?

    Sum total? Is this like "in a nutshell?" LOL well then, what all of Christianity has in common is the basic gospel story, as it were: that Jesus Christ, the one and only son of God (who is also God in human form, part of the three-part God-head called the "Trinity) was born to an earth-mother, a child really, called Mary, who was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph. Mary was a virgin - it is essential in Christianity to believe in the virgin birth and accept this divine conception. From the day he was born Jesus had a destiny to fulfill: he was born to be a human sacrifice - he was to be murdered for the sins of all humans so that all human beings, Jew and Gentile alike, would be able to be forgiven for their sins. And then three days after he was placed in a tomb, miraculously, Jesus rose from the dead after he had died and descended into Hell to pay the price for the sins of the entire world.This he did in order to replace the existing covenant between the Jewish people and God - God opened up to the Gentiles and all who would accept his son, Jesus. After Jesus returned from the dead, he stayed a while and then finally left his disciples, rising up to Heaven on a cloud. But he sent down a third figure, an unseen spirit, The Holy Spirit, to dwell in the hearts of humans who believe in Jesus Christ and his teachings and accept him as the Savior of the World. That just about covers it.

    My Dear Sweet Freinds,

    First, Christianity is not a religion per se, as most think it is.  Christianity is the path of all existence that continually work its Way back to the Creator. 

    Christianity is God in expression through the activities of mankind.  This activity is Love, and only Love.  Any expression of Love in the world is the work of Christianity as the only path for all creation back to the Creator.  Not as a religion, placing itself above all religions, but as Love Itself, the Son of Love as expressed in the acts of man. 

    So, in the final analysis, Christianity is Love Itself,  expressed one man unto another upon Earth.  As Jesus said, by this shall the world know that ye art my disciples.
