    God never created any Christians. Christianity is just another religion with similarities and differences to others. The religion you choose to follow if at all is largely dependant upon the society you were brought up in.

      ITT: Norine believes the Gospels were the first religious texts ever written, despite the earliest ones being written around 90 AD.

      You realize the Sumerians wrote their religious texts thousands of years before Hebrews were even a thing, right?

      Being a Christian can also reach degrees unknown.

    As for who created 'the others": speaking for myself, my parents created me.

    Well God created all of those "others" too. They just don't know it. That's why missionaries and other proselytizers have to work tirelessly to get these other people to understand that they have made a mistake...and that they need to correct it before it's too late!   
    Sometimes we have to torture people or even go to war with them, because they are blind to the truth. It's absolutely worth it, because we do it out of love. ei, we love them so much that we will do anything to keep them from going to hell.
    There is NO OTHER GOD, except Jehovah...who sent his son to sacrifice himself for us, so that we may be saved. Its important that people all over the globe know this, lest they risk the ultimate torment...for eternity.
    ...Well...at least that's the story I was told. LOL!

    The original bible allegedly written by God was at a time when there were no Christians, and Christians didn't appear until the second bible.

    Christians try to connect the two bibles by using the Trinity. But the God of the first bible is nothing like Jesus in the second bible.

    The Jews that were supposedly involved in both bibles, chose not to follow Jesus.

    Neither bible was written by the hand of a deity, and no one ever saw the God of the first bible. Neither bible was written contemporaneously with the events depicted in them. But both bibles were written by mere mortals.

    God created everyone, and gave everyone free will.  He created ALL living things but humans are special and set apart from the animal world, and this includes those "early humans" and ape-people.  If we evolved from apes, why are there still apes here today?

      Changing languages and religion are choices people can make.  People can't really choose to alter their physical make-up and appearance, unless they have laboratories and scientists, which they didn't thousands of years ago.

      Lolita - evolution doesn't mean that one species entirely changes to another and wipes out the original. We share the majority of our DNA with chimps, but have evolved over time to be different - difficult to explain in a comment space. Google it.

      When there is a term or concept that is not understood, the intelligent approach is to research that term or concept...to grasp the understanding. Failure to do so suggest an irrational approach to discussion...meaning one cant be taken seriously.

    Cop out answer? Satan did.

    ...another cop out answer? God created everyone with free will, meaning you can choose whether or not to be Christian. Oddly enough, if you listen to the more hard core Christians, people are punished for using the free will god gave them to not believe in his purported existence, which is backed by nothing other than an ancient book that contradicts itself, literal nutjobs, by people who are either too closed minded to step out their comfort zone, are brainwashed, or are simply comfortable believing in something they know they can't prove.

    I personally like the last group of people the most, much easier to have conversations with.
