    The founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ, is known to be very peaceful. His real dedicated followers are peaceful too. But there are so many who claim to be Christians and do so much evil....they are the ones that give Christianity a bad image.

    Christianity is a faith to love others, to serve and support them. However, too often people think God wants them to force, fight or kill in God's name to make others believe. The basic tenants are of peace and love, it just gets messed up when people who want to either stay in power or get more power get involved.

    Answering the question "Do you think that Christianity is the most peaceful religion?"    To get directly to the point of my intentionally provocative title - Christianity is not the most peaceful religion because Christianity simply is not a... read more

    no religion can make such a claim, partly because it's impossible to apply such a general idea across any culture, religion or people

    Yes it is the most peaceful religion unlike how it is portrayed in the media. Fault Christians not the master of the universe who gave us a lifestyle and the words to go with it.

    Yes and no.

    If followed and practiced like Christ had intended...Yes.

    If, you mean the form of psuedo-Christianity practiced by Roman Catholics...No.

    If, you mean cults who attempt to latch-on to the Holy name of Christ Jesus in order to gain credence and converts, like the LDS Church, for example...No.

    There are many who claim to come in the name of the Lord, but are only wolves in sheep's clothing. Only a true Christian knows the voice of their Shepherd.

    Rev. Akins - if that's how you feel then all religions should be deemed peaceful.

    We shouldn't look at it through what is written, but what it has caused. I could go through a very large list of atrocities under the book:

    1. The founding and enslavement of hundreds of countries, under the words: "I certify to you that, with the help of God, we shall powerfully enter in your country and shall make war against you ... and shall subject you to the yoke and obedience of the Church ... and shall do you all mischief that we can, as to vassals who do not obey and refuse to receive their lord and resist and contradict him."

    2. 1492 - 1600's - The murder of near to all civilisations and tribes living in the Mexico and Central African lands. Under the eye of God, they slaughtered the Aztec's, a civilisation so unique that the Spanish couldn't bare it.

    3. Nazi exterminations camps - Not just in Germany, but in Croatia too. Murdering anyone whom wasn't Catholic. Let me just add, the Pope was aware of this, and he even visited the camps.

    4. The Crusades - Under the name of the lord, the Catholics would crusade on the Holy Lands, killing whatever they should find in their way. Millions of children murdered.

    It may not be in the scripture, but since the book was written, the Catholics and many under the Christian name have murdered around the globe, under 'God's' name.
