Is Christianity a religion or a way of life?
I was once taught that religion is what you can be a religion which can be going to church, how often you pray, and pilgramages. Even your job, and money can be a religion. Then I was taught that true Christianity is a walk, or even a relationship. Tell me what do you think?
One of the biggest myths today is that Christianity is a religion.Christianity is a way of life a committed life that fellows the example set by Christ doing his time on earth. Religion is the practice of traditions and ordinances that really has little to do with pleasing God.Christianity unlike religion is all about being pleasing to God.
Yes Christianity is both a religion and a way of life. A religion because you have to follow a slated method of worship and pray in a particular way and also do certain rites at so and so time. All these is what is called religious activities - that is a form of worship of some sort.
But christianity is also a way of life because you are led by the christ - that is the 'Word of God' and the Holy Spirit that moves like the wind and by so doing you are led by the spirit and become unpredictable to your enemies.
i believe christianity is a religion. I was taught since i was age 5. went to classes, taught how to ray and communicate with GOD. I go to church every sunday with my family and prayed everytime i reached school. Feels like GOD is looking after me, answering my prayers and taking care of me. However, now that I am married to a Buddhist, I don't go to church anymore except on christmas day with my family. Buddhist doesn't like other religion except themselves. Love is blind. But I do pray at night on my own.
It's both, except that those who are "religious" but do not adopt it as a way of life. . . .aren't really Christians. Does that make sense, or was that just confusing?
Christianity is a Way Of Life, because it defines the Belief in Jesus Christ and all He did for us. The Gospels in the New Testament quote Jesus. He says, "I am The Way, The Truth and The Life."

It's easy to deconvert to atheism because they are disappointed, hurt or because they have lost their faith due to God making sense. It's harder to suddenly make a rational atheists convert to Christianity, which is faith-based. How does it happen?

The religious forums for the most part are highly contentious and not for the faint of heart and sensitive of disposition. Only those who are strong mentally can and do surivive, even thrive. The rest of us mortals find it BEST to avoid such contention and argument. Name...

If not even Christians can agree on Christianity... then is it doomed to fail?Do we need to simply let Christianity continue the way it is and once it is gone start a new faith?In my opinion there needs to be 1 Christian church, 1 Christian Bible, 1 Christian Faith. If that can't be done then I...
