.Christianity (from the Greek word Xριστός, Khristos, "Christ", literally "anointed one") is a monotheistic religion[1] based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament.^ Wherefore, Christ (Maashua) has been present throughout the entire Spiritual Evolution of Man and the entire history of God on earth-even in the New World before the coming of Columbus.

^ Who Christ is referring to are those Europeans and Indo-Europeans who practice the religion of Judaism as in keeping the Spirit of the original Hebrew faith, and Hebrew Israelites, who make similar claims on the Old Testament and the linage of Abraham to suggest that their religion or way of life is also in keeping with the Spirit of the original Hebrew.

^ The whole of the Tibetan Religion is based upon the Rinpoche, a "Precious Jewel" who transfers his consciousness lifetime after lifetime into a new body and then again rules.

.Christians believe Jesus is the son of God, God having become man and the savior of humanity.^ According to Christian dogma, Jesus is the Son of God.

^ So who is the Lord God that John (the brother of Jesus) refers to, as having been crucified in Sodom and Egypt?

^ Jesus came a fulfilled the culmination of the mission by becoming one with the Pure and Perfect Mind of God, and one with the Creation of the Universe in the sight of men.

.Christians, therefore, commonly refer to Jesus as Christ or Messiah.^ It was used as a derogatory reference to the unusual amount of devotion and attention paid to the Catholic Saints, often in preference to Jesus Christ.

^ Therefore, once the thousand years were up, the Aryan ego and pride of the Romans (Satan) was loose to start the Great Christian Crusades, the first of which started exactly one thousand year after the death as resurrection of Christ Jesus.

^ Church Fathers invented historical Jesus Christ some five hundred years after the advent of Christianity to install a Messiah.

[3]
.Adherents of the Christian faith, known as Christians,[4] believe that Jesus is the Messiah prophesied in the Hebrew Bible (the part of scripture common to Christianity and Judaism, and referred to as the "Old Testament" in Christianity.^ Rest assured that the truly righteous will be attacked like the Prophets and Apostles and the Messiah of the Old and New Testaments.

^ One of the most interesting parts of the book is a section in which the author discusses the racial identity of Jesus and offers evidence that the Christian Savior was a black man.

^ Therefore, to the rest of the world, the Messianic faith and the Hebrew faith remained divided-despite the fact that Jesus had fulfilled both the transformation and the resurrection.

). .The foundation of Christian theology is expressed in the early Christian ecumenical creeds, which contain claims predominantly accepted by followers of the Christian faith.^ Consider, for instance, the following claims of Bolaji Idowu, one of the most cited scholars on Yorb theology: .

^ Hence, one can engage in some linguistic license and claim that, while Christian theology has a mono-demonic conception of evil, Yorb religion has a poly-demonic conception of evil.

^ In a footnote reference to his claims that in Yorb theology the Deity created the world in four days, Idowu refers us to page 112 of his book, were we read the following: .

[5] .These professions state that Jesus suffered, died from crucifixion, was buried, and was resurrected from the dead to open heaven to those who believe in him and trust him for the remission of their sins (salvation).^ Jesus was not the first son of Heru to be resurrected from the dead.

^ Surely these two Pass-Overs were a sign that heaven was preparing a day of judgment for those who claim to be Hebrew descendants of Abraham, but refuse to keep the original Hebrew faith.

^ The purification and perfection of such knowledge also gave him power to appear before those whom he loved the most, as one who was resurrected from the dead.

[6] .They further maintain that Jesus bodily ascended into heaven where he rules and reigns with God the Father.^ The Indians say, "Our Mother, the Earth" and our Father, who art in Heaven is God, the energy in the center of the universe.
  • The Kundalini Kriyass of Kriya Yoga!! Energy Enhancement Meditation Course Level 1 14 January 2010 10:19 UTC www.energyenhancement.org [Source type: General]

^ All of that brings us back to Jesus, and what the Heavenly Father Heru sent him into the earth to fulfill.

^ Father Heru...When the prophets like Isaiah in chapter 6:1-5 speak of seeing the Lord (YHWH) are they speaking of the Heavenly Father and God (Power) of the earth, Heru?

.Most denominations teach that Jesus will return to judge all humans, living and dead, and grant eternal life to his followers.^ After all, most of the people he sought to elevate to higher levels of human behavior, metaphysical thinking, and scientific understanding were highly religious people.

^ Hence one must have lived life as a human before becoming an ancestor.

^ Sahu - The incorruptible spiritual body of man that could dwell in the heavens, appearing from the physical body after the judgment of the dead was passed (if successful) with all of the mental and spiritual abilities of a living body.

He is considered the model of a virtuous life, and both the revealer and physical incarnation of God.[7] .Christians call the message of Jesus Christ the Gospel ("good news") and hence refer to the earliest written accounts of his ministry as gospels.^ Nevertheless, the resurrection of Heru's son is the root of how Horus became known as the god of the resurrection in Egypt, and Jesus coming to fulfill the resurrection written of in the Gospel of Heru.

^ It was used as a derogatory reference to the unusual amount of devotion and attention paid to the Catholic Saints, often in preference to Jesus Christ.

^ My Dearly Beloved Sister Jennifer, If I tried to understand the Revelation of Christ Jesus from a purely religious point of view, or from the point of view of traditional Christianity, I too would have some problems with the idea of an old serpent called Satan and the Devil.

Christianity began as a Jewish sect[8][9] and is classified as an Abrahamic religion.[10][11][12] Originating in the eastern Mediterranean, it quickly grew in size and influence over a few decades, and by the 4th century had become the dominant religion within the Roman Empire.
.During the Middle Ages, most of the remainder of Europe was Christianized, with Christians also being a (sometimes large) religious minority in the Middle East, North Africa, and parts of India.^ One of the most interesting parts of the book is a section in which the author discusses the racial identity of Jesus and offers evidence that the Christian Savior was a black man.

[13] .Following the Age of Discovery, through missionary work and colonization, Christianity spread to the Americas, Australasia, and the rest of the world, therefore Christianity is a major influence in the shaping of Western civilization.^ The common language of the country at that time had become assimilated to the Semitic dialect, especially through the influence of the Assyrians, and was the language that was used for all civil purposes.

^ Therefore, to the rest of the world, the Messianic faith and the Hebrew faith remained divided-despite the fact that Jesus had fulfilled both the transformation and the resurrection.

^ To save lives, the missionaries cleverly decided to spread their religious message slowly throughout the populations by allowing them to continue to celebrate pagan feasts, but to do so in a Christian manner.

.As of the early 21st century, Christianity has between 1.5 billion[14][15] and 2.2 billion adherents.^ During the early stages of Christianity reincarnation was accepted as revealed in Matthew 17: 10-12; 16;13; 11:14 and John 9: 2-3; Revelation 13: 10 and so on.

.The Chalcedonian Creed, developed at the Council of Chalcedon in 451,[26] though rejected by the Oriental Orthodox Churches,[27] taught Christ "to be acknowledged in two natures, inconfusedly, unchangeably, indivisibly, inseparably": one divine and one human, and that both natures are perfect but are nevertheless perfectly united into one person.^ Only two persons turned up; one didn't turn up, so we were only three.

The Athanasian Creed, received in the western Church as having the same status as the Nicene and Chalcedonian, says: "We worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; neither confounding the Persons nor dividing the Substance."[29]
Most Christians (Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox and Protestants alike) accept the use of creeds, and subscribe to at least one of the creeds mentioned above.[30]
Many evangelical Protestants reject creeds as definitive statements faith, even while agreeing with some creeds' substance. The Baptists have been non-creedal “in that they have not sought to establish binding authoritative confessions of faith on one another.” [31]:p.111 Also rejecting creeds are groups with roots in the Restoration Movement, such as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Churches of Christ.[32][33]:14-15[34]:123

Jesus Christ

The central tenet of Christianity is the belief in Jesus as the Son of God and the Messiah (Christ). The title "Messiah" comes from the Hebrew word מָשִׁיחַ (māšiáħ) meaning anointed one. The Greek translation Χριστός (Christos) is the source of the English word "Christ".[7]
A depiction of Jesus as a child with his mother, Mary, the Theotokos of Vladimir (12th century).
Christians believe that Jesus, as the Messiah, was anointed by God as savior of humanity, and hold that Jesus' coming was the fulfillment of messianic prophecies of the Old Testament. The Christian concept of the Messiah differs significantly from the contemporary Jewish concept. The core Christian belief is that through belief in and acceptance of the death and resurrection of Jesus, sinful humans can be reconciled to God and thereby are offered salvation and the promise of eternal life.[35]
.While there have been many theological disputes over the nature of Jesus over the earliest centuries of Christian history, Christians generally believe that Jesus is God incarnate and "true God and true man" (or both fully divine and fully human).^ The earliest Jaina inscription from Mathura is of 150 B.C. Jainism got a foothold there by the beginning of the second century B.C. if not earlier.

Jesus, having become fully human, suffered the pains and temptations of a mortal man, but did not sin. As fully God, he rose to life again. According to the Bible, "God raised him from the dead,"[36] he ascended to heaven, is "seated at the right hand of the Father"[37] and will ultimately return[Acts 1:9-11] to fulfill the rest of Messianic prophecy such as the Resurrection of the dead, the Last Judgment and final establishment of the Kingdom of God.

Little of Jesus' childhood is recorded in the canonical Gospels, however infancy Gospels were popular in antiquity. In comparison, his adulthood, especially the week before his death, are well documented in the Gospels contained within the New Testament. The Biblical accounts of Jesus' ministry include: his baptism, miracles, preaching, teaching, and deeds.

Death and resurrection of Jesus

Christians consider the resurrection of Jesus to be the cornerstone of their faith (see 1 Corinthians 15) and the most important event in human history.[38] Among Christian beliefs, the death and resurrection of Jesus are two core events on which much of Christian doctrine and theology is based.[39][40] According to the New Testament Jesus was crucified, died a physical death, was buried within a tomb, and rose from the dead three days later.[Jn. 19:30–31] .[Mk. 16:1] [16:6] The New Testament mentions several resurrection appearances of Jesus on different occasions to his twelve apostles and disciples, including "more than five hundred brethren at once,"[1 Cor.^ The Dalai Lama for example is the same soul who has returned to a new body on 13 different occasions for thousands of years.

before Jesus' Ascension to heaven. Jesus' death and resurrection are commemorated by Christians in all worship services, with special emphasis during Holy Week which includes Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
.The death and resurrection of Jesus are usually considered the most important events in Christian Theology, partly because they demonstrate that Jesus has power over life and death and therefore has the authority and power to give people eternal life.^ Craig Adamson Overall, I think that this video gives the two most important and often overlooked keys to meditation.

[43] Some liberal Christians do not accept a literal bodily resurrection,[44][45] seeing the story as richly symbolic and spiritually nourishing myth. Arguments over death and resurrection claims occur at many religious debates and interfaith dialogues.[46] Paul the Apostle, an early Christian convert and missionary, wrote, "If Christ was not raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your trust in God is useless."[1 Cor. 15:14] [47]

Salvation

Paul of Tarsus, like Jews and Roman pagans of his time, believed that sacrifice can bring about new kinship ties, purity, and eternal life.[48] For Paul the necessary sacrifice was the death of Jesus: Gentiles who are "Christ's" are like Israel descendants of Abraham and "heirs according to the promise".[Gal. 3:29] [49] The God who raised Jesus from the dead would also give new life to the "mortal bodies" of Gentile Christians, who had become with Israel the "children of God" and were therefore no longer "in the flesh".[Rom. 8:9,11,16] [48]
.Modern Christian churches tend to be much more concerned with how humanity can be saved from a universal condition of sin and death than the question of how both Jews and Gentiles can be in God's family.^ THIS MAP SHOWS HOW WE HUMAN BEINGS CONNECT INTO THE HIGHER AND HIGHER ENERGIES OF THE UNIVERSE. .

According to both Catholic and Protestant doctrine, salvation comes by Jesus' substitutionary death and resurrection. The Catholic Church teaches that salvation does not occur without faithfulness on the part of Christians; converts must live in accordance with principles of love and ordinarily must be baptized.[50][51] Martin Luther taught that baptism was necessary for salvation, but modern Lutherans and other Protestants tend to teach that salvation is a gift that comes to an individual by God's grace, sometimes defined as "unmerited favor", even apart from baptism.
Christians differ in their views on the extent to which individuals' salvation is pre-ordained by God. Reformed theology places distinctive emphasis on grace by teaching that individuals are completely incapable of self-redemption, but that sanctifying grace is irresistible.[52] In contrast Arminians, Catholics, and Orthodox Christians believe that the exercise of free will is necessary to have faith in Jesus.[53]

Trinity

.Trinity refers to the teaching that the one God comprises three distinct, eternally co-existing persons; the Father, the Son (incarnate in Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.^ Only two persons turned up; one didn't turn up, so we were only three.

Non-trinitarians

Nontrinitarianism refers to beliefs systems that reject the doctrine of the Trinity. They are a small minority of Christians. Various nontrinitarian views, such as adoptionism or modalism, existed in early Christianity, leading to the disputes about Christology.[66] .Nontrinitarianism later appeared again in the Gnosticism of the Cathars in the 11th through 13th centuries, in the Age of Enlightenment of the 18th century, and in some groups arising during the Second Great Awakening of the 19th century.^ Samantabhadra, who is known to be the great leader of Jaina religion and thought through his works, lived in the second century A.D.

Scriptures

Christianity regards the Bible, a collection of canonical books in two parts (the Old Testament and the New Testament), as the authoritative word of God. .It is believed by Christians to have been written by human authors under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and therefore for many it is held to be the inerrant word of God.^ Also the triple word, Sat Chid Ananda - Sat is our Father, the Truth, Chid is the purified Mind which alone can absorb the Holy Spirit of Bliss, Ananda.

[67][68][69] Jews, Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants each define separate lists of Books of the Bible that each considers canonical. These variations are a reflection of the range of traditions and councils that have convened on the subject. .Every version of the complete Bible always includes books of the Jewish scriptures, the Tanakh, and includes additional books and reorganizes them into two parts: the books of the Old Testament primarily sourced from the Tanakh (with some variations), and the 27 books of the New Testament containing books originally written primarily in Greek.^ The Indian sages, according to the Greek writers, have been divided into two categories (1) the Brhmaas and (2) ramaas.
  • CHAPTER - VI 14 January 2010 8:18 UTC www.jainworld.org [Source type: Original source]

[70] The Roman Catholic and Orthodox canons include other books from the Septuagint which Roman Catholics call Deuterocanonical.[71] Protestants consider these books to be apocryphal. Some versions of the Christian Bible have a separate Apocrypha section for the books not considered canonical by some Churches or by the groups publishing them.[72]

Catholic and Orthodox interpretations

In antiquity, two schools of exegesis developed in Alexandria and Antioch. .Alexandrine interpretation, exemplified by Origen, tended to read Scripture allegorically, while Antiochene interpretation adhered to the literal sense, holding that other meanings (called theoria) could only be accepted if based on the literal meaning.^ As philosophical, moral, and eventually allegorical overlays came to be applied to Hercules death-cheating superhuman exploits, behind their outer, literal meaning, the Hercules figure came to represent an inner mystical tradition, and thus the labours could be interpreted in terms of the spiritual path.

[73]
Catholic theology distinguishes two senses of scripture: the literal and the spiritual.[74]
The literal sense of understanding scripture is the meaning conveyed by the words of Scripture. The spiritual sense is further subdivided into:
Regarding exegesis, following the rules of sound interpretation, Catholic theology holds:
  • the injunction that all other senses of sacred scripture are based on the literal[75][76]
  • that the historicity of the Gospels must be absolutely and constantly held[77]
  • that scripture must be read within the "living Tradition of the whole Church"[78] and
  • that "the task of interpretation has been entrusted to the bishops in communion with the successor of Peter, the Bishop of Rome".[79]

Protestant interpretation

Clarity of Scripture
Protestant Christians believe that the Bible is a self-sufficient revelation, the final authority on all Christian doctrine, and revealed all truth necessary for salvation. This concept is known as sola scriptura.[80] .Protestants characteristically believe that ordinary believers may reach an adequate understanding of Scripture because Scripture itself is clear (or "perspicuous"), because of the help of the Holy Spirit, or both.^ Christianity, on the other hand, teaches that our bodies (both men and women) are temples of the Holy Spirit (cf.

[81] John Calvin wrote, "all who...follow the Holy Spirit as their guide, find in the Scripture a clear light."[82] The Second Helvetic (Latin for "Swiss")[83] Confession, composed by the pastor of the Reformed church in Zurich (successor to Protestant reformer Zwingli) was adopted as a declaration of doctrine by most European Reformed churches.[84]
Original intended meaning
Protestants stress the meaning conveyed by the words of Scripture, the historical-grammatical method.[85] The historical-grammatical method or grammatico-historical method is an effort in Biblical hermeneutics to find the intended original meaning in the text.[86] This original intended meaning of the text is drawn out through examination of the passage in light of the grammatical and syntactical aspects, the historical background, the literary genre as well as theological (canonical) considerations.[87] The historical-grammatical method distinguishes between the one original meaning and the significance of the text. The significance of the text includes the ensuing use of the text or application. The original passage is seen as having only a single meaning or sense. As Milton S. Terry said: "A fundamental principle in grammatico-historical exposition is that the words and sentences can have but one significance in one and the same connection. The moment we neglect this principle we drift out upon a sea of uncertainty and conjecture."[88] Technically speaking, the grammatical-historical method of interpretation is distinct from the determination of the passage's significance in light of that interpretation. Taken together, both define the term (Biblical) hermeneutics.[89]
Some Protestant interpreters make use of typology.[90]

Justin Martyr[100]

Some Christian denominations practice closed communion. They offer communion to those who are already united in that denomination or sometimes individual church. Catholics restrict participation to their members who are not in a state of mortal sin. Most other churches practice open communion since they view communion as a means to unity, rather than an end, and invite all believing Christians to participate.
Some groups depart from this traditional liturgical structure. A division is often made between "High" church services, characterized by greater solemnity and ritual, and "Low" services, but even within these two categories there is great diversity in forms of worship. Seventh-day Adventists meet on Saturday, while others do not meet on a weekly basis. Charismatic or Pentecostal congregations may spontaneously feel led by the Holy Spirit to action rather than follow a formal order of service, including spontaneous prayer. Quakers sit quietly until moved by the Holy Spirit to speak. Some Evangelical services resemble concerts with rock and pop music, dancing, and use of multimedia. For groups which do not recognize a priesthood distinct from ordinary believers the services are generally lead by a minister, preacher, or pastor. .Still others may lack any formal leaders, either in principle or by local necessity.^ And still others agree wholeheartedly with the manifesto and do as many of the "best practices" as are suggested by leaders of the movement.

The two most widely accepted sacraments are Baptism and the Eucharist, however, the majority of Christians recognize seven Sacraments or Divine Mysteries: Baptism, Confirmation (Chrismation in the Orthodox tradition), and the Eucharist, Holy Orders, Reconciliation of a Penitent (confession), Anointing of the Sick, and Matrimony.[101] Taken together, these are the Seven Sacraments as recognised by churches in the High church tradition—notably Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Independent Catholic, Old Catholic and some Anglicans. .Most other denominations and traditions typically affirm only Baptism and Eucharist as sacraments, while some Protestant groups, such as the Quakers, reject sacramental theology.^ In all If poems (and other traditional Yorb genre such as Ijala and Iwi Egungun), Oldmar is gender neutral.

Liturgical calendar

Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Eastern Christians, and traditional Protestant communities frame worship around a liturgical calendar. .This includes holy days, such as solemnities which commemorate an event in the life of Jesus or the saints, periods of fasting such as Lent, and other pious events such as memoria or lesser festivals commemorating saints.^ Six hours a day he is wasting, and it is such a small life; and he is a coward.'"

History and origins

Early Church and Christological Councils

Christianity began as a Jewish sect in the eastern Mediterranean in the mid-1st century.[4][8][9] Its earliest development took place under the leadership of the Twelve Apostles, particularly Saint Peter and Paul the Apostle, followed by the early bishops, whom Christians considered the successors of the Apostles.
From the beginning, Christians were subject to persecution by the Jewish religious leaders, who disagreed with the apostles' teachings. This involved punishments, including death, for Christians such as Stephen[Acts 7:59] and James, son of Zebedee.[Acts 12:2] .Larger-scale persecutions followed at the hands of the authorities of the Roman Empire, first in the year 64, when Emperor Nero blamed them for the Great Fire of Rome.^ As the Nandas held sway over the Magadhan empire in the fourth century B.C., Khravela, who flourished more than 300 years after Nandarja, should be assigned to the first century B.C. .
  • CHAPTER - VI 14 January 2010 8:18 UTC www.jainworld.org [Source type: Original source]

According to Church tradition, it was under Nero's persecution that early Church leaders Peter and Paul of Tarsus were each martyred in Rome. Further widespread persecutions of the Church occurred under nine subsequent Roman emperors, most intensely under Decius and Diocletian. From the year 150, Christian teachers began to produce theological and apologetic works aimed at defending the faith. These authors are known as the Church Fathers, and study of them is called Patristics. Notable early Fathers include Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria, and Origen.
.State persecution ceased in the 4th century, when Constantine I issued an edict of toleration in 313. On 27 February 380, Emperor Theodosius I enacted a law establishing Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire.^ Vijay Nagara kingdom was established in 1346 A.D. Though kings of this kingdom were Champions of Brahmanical religion, they followed the policy of religious toleration.
  • CHAPTER - VI 14 January 2010 8:18 UTC www.jainworld.org [Source type: Original source]

[109] From at least the 4th century, Christianity has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization.[110]
Constantine was also instrumental in the convocation of the First Council of Nicaea in 325, which sought to address the Arian heresy and formulated the Nicene Creed, which is still used by the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, Anglican Communion, and many Protestant churches.[30] Nicaea was the first of a series of Ecumenical (worldwide) Councils which formally defined critical elements of the theology of the Church, notably concerning Christology.[111] The Assyrian Church of the East did not accept the third and following Ecumenical Councils, and are still separate today.

Early Middle Ages

With the decline and fall of the Roman Empire in the west, the papacy became a political player, first visible in Pope Leo's diplomatic dealings with Huns and Vandals.[112] The church also entered into a long period of missionary activity and expansion among the various tribes. Whilst arianists instituted the death penalty for practicing pagans (see Massacre of Verden as example), Catholicism also spread among the Germanic peoples ([112] the Celtic and Slavic peoples, the Hungarians, and the Baltic peoples.
Around 500, St. Benedict set out his Monastic Rule, establishing a system of regulations for the foundation and running of monasteries.[112] Monasticism became a powerful force throughout Europe,[112] and gave rise to many early centers of learning, most famously in Ireland, Scotland and Gaul, contributing to the Carolingian Renaissance of the 9th century.
.From the 7th century onwards, Islam conquered the Christian lands of the Middle East, North Africa and much of Spain,[113] resulting in oppression of Christianity and numerous military struggles, including the Crusades, the Spanish Reconquista and wars against the Turks.^ Orcs cannot walk in the light so Sauron creates black smoke to cover the sky as a prelude to spreading his Orcs all over the Middle Earth in his war against Humanity.
  • The Kundalini Kriyass of Kriya Yoga!! Energy Enhancement Meditation Course Level 1 14 January 2010 10:19 UTC www.energyenhancement.org [Source type: General]

The Middle Ages brought about major changes within the church. Pope Gregory the Great dramatically reformed ecclesiastical structure and administration.[114] In the early 8th century, iconoclasm became a divisive issue, when it was sponsored by the Byzantine emperors. The Second Ecumenical Council of Nicaea (787) finally pronounced in favor of icons.[115] In the early 10th century, western monasticism was further rejuvenated through the leadership of the great Benedictine monastery of Cluny.[116]

High and Late Middle Ages

In the west, from the 11th century onward, older cathedral schools developed into universities (see University of Paris, University of Oxford, and University of Bologna.) .Originally teaching only theology, these steadily added subjects including medicine, philosophy and law, becoming the direct ancestors of modern western institutions of learning.^ We can only heal ourselves when we learn to fill ourselves with energy by these methods.

[117]
Accompanying the rise of the "new towns" throughout Western Europe, mendicant orders were founded, bringing the consecrated religious life out of the monastery and into the new urban setting. The two principal mendicant movements were the Franciscans[118] and the Dominicans[119] founded by St. Francis and St. Dominic respectively. Both orders made significant contributions to the development of the great universities of Europe. Another new order were the Cistercians, whose large isolated monasteries spearheaded the settlement of former wilderness areas. In this period church building and ecclesiastical architecture reached new heights, culminating in the orders of Romanesque and Gothic architecture and the building of the great European cathedrals.[120]
Pope Urban II at the Council of Clermont, where he preached the First Crusade.
From 1095 under the pontificate of Urban II, the Crusades were launched.[121] These were a series of military campaigns in the Holy Land and elsewhere, initiated in response to pleas from the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I for aid against Turkish expansion. The Crusades ultimately failed to stifle Islamic aggression and even contributed to Christian enmity with the sacking of Constantinople during the Fourth Crusade.[122]
Over a period stretching from the 7th to the 13th century, the Christian Church underwent gradual alienation, resulting in a schism dividing it into a so-called Latin or Western branch, the Roman Catholic Church,[123] and an Eastern, largely Greek, branch, the Orthodox Church. These two churches disagree on a number of administrative, liturgical, and doctrinal issues, most notably papal primacy of jurisdiction.[124][125] The Second Council of Lyon (1274) and the Council of Florence (1439) attempted to reunite the churches, but in both cases the Eastern Orthodox refused to implement the decisions and the two principal churches remain in schism to the present day. However, the Roman Catholic Church has achieved union with various smaller eastern churches.
Beginning around 1184, following the crusade against the Cathar heresy,[126] various institutions, broadly referred to as the Inquisition, were established with the aim of suppressing heresy and securing religious and doctrinal unity within Christianity through conversion and prosecution.[127]

Protestant Reformation and Counter-Reformation

Opening of Luther's 95 Theses
The 15th-century Renaissance brought about a renewed interest in ancient and classical learning. Another major schism, the Reformation, resulted in the splintering of the Western Christendom into several Christian denominations.[128] Martin Luther in 1517 protested against the sale of indulgences and soon moved on to deny several key points of Roman Catholic doctrine. Others like Zwingli and Calvin further criticized Roman Catholic teaching and worship. These challenges developed into the movement called Protestantism, which repudiated the primacy of the pope, the role of tradition, the seven sacraments, and other doctrines and practices.[129] The Reformation in England began in 1534, when King Henry VIII had himself declared head of the Church of England. Beginning in 1536, the monasteries throughout England, Wales and Ireland were dissolved.[130]
Partly in response to the Protestant Reformation, the Roman Catholic Church engaged in a substantial process of reform and renewal, known as the Counter-Reformation or Catholic Reform.[131] The Council of Trent clarified and reasserted Roman Catholic doctrine. During the following centuries, competition between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism became deeply entangled with political struggles among European states.[132]
Meanwhile, the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus in 1492 brought about a new wave of missionary activity. Partly from missionary zeal, but under the impetus of colonial expansion by the European powers, Christianity spread to the Americas, Oceania, East Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa.
Throughout Europe, the divides caused by the Reformation led to outbreaks of religious violence and the establishment of separate state religions in Western Europe: Lutheranism in parts of Germany and in Scandinavia and Anglicanism in England in 1534. Ultimately, these differences led to the outbreak of conflicts in which religion played a key factor. The Thirty Years' War, the English Civil War, and the French Wars of Religion are prominent examples. These events intensified the Christian debate on persecution and toleration.[133]

In the Modern Era

In the Modern Era, Christianity has been confronted with various forms of skepticism and with certain modern political ideologies such as Marxism. Events ranged from mere anti-clericalism to violent outbursts against Christianity such as the Dechristianisation during the French Revolution,[134] the Spanish Civil War, and general hostility of Marxist movements, especially the Russian Revolution.
Christian commitment in Europe dropped as modernity and secularism came into their own in Western Europe, while religious commitments in America have been generally high in comparison to Western Europe. The late 20th century has shown the shift of Christian adherence to the Third World and southern hemisphere in general, with western civilization no longer the chief standard bearer of Christianity.
Some Europeans (including diaspora), Indigenous peoples of the Americas, and natives of other continents have revived their respective peoples' historical folk religions. (see Neo-paganism, [1])

Demographics

Nations with Christianity as their state religion:      Orthodox Christianity      Protestantism      Roman Catholicism
With an estimated number of adherents that ranges between 1.5 billion[135] and 2.1 billion,[135] split into around 34,000 separate denominations, Christianity is the world's largest religion.[136] The Christian share of the world's population has stood at around 33 per cent for the last hundred years. This masks a major shift in the demographics of Christianity; large increases in the developing world (around 23,000 per day) have been accompanied by substantial declines in the developed world, mainly in Europe and North America (around 7,600 per day).[137] It is still the predominant religion in Europe, the Americas, the Philippines, and Southern Africa.[138] However it is declining in many areas including the Northern and Western United States,[139] Oceania (Australia and New Zealand), northern Europe (including Great Britain,[140] Scandinavia and other places), France, Germany, the Canadian provinces of Ontario, British Columbia, and Quebec, and parts of Asia (especially the Middle East,[141][142][143] South Korea,[144] Taiwan[145] and Macau[146]).

[147] Some sources view this simply as part of a drift away from traditional membership institutions,[148] while others link it to signs of a decline in belief in the importance of religion in general.[149]
Christianity, in one form or another, is the sole state religion of the following nations: Armenia (Armenian Apostolic),[150] Bolivia (Roman Catholic),[151] Costa Rica (Roman Catholic),[152] Denmark (Evangelical Lutheran),[153] El Salvador (Roman Catholic),[154] England (Anglican),[155] Finland (Evangelical Lutheran & Orthodox),[156][157] Georgia (Georgian Orthodox),[158] Greece (Greek Orthodox),[154] Iceland (Evangelical Lutheran),[159] Liechtenstein (Roman Catholic),[160] Malta (Roman Catholic),[161] Monaco (Roman Catholic),[162] Norway (Evangelical Lutheran),[163] Switzerland (Roman Catholic, Old Catholic, or Protestant—denomination varies per canton)[164] and Vatican City (Roman Catholic).[165]
There are numerous other countries, such as Cyprus, which although do not have an established church, still give official recognition to a specific Christian denomination.[166]

Main grouping of Christianity

The four primary divisions of Christianity are Roman Catholicism, the Orthodox church, Anglican, and Protestantism.[34]:14[167] There are other Christian groups that do not fit neatly into one of these primary categories.[168] The Nicene Creed is "accepted as authoritative by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and major Protestant churches."[169] There is a diversity of doctrines and practices among groups calling themselves Christian. These groups are sometimes classified under denominations, though for theological reasons many groups reject this classification system.[170] Another distinction that is sometimes drawn is between Eastern Christianity and Western Christianity.

The 2,782 sees[179] are grouped into 23 particular rites, the largest being the Latin Rite, each with distinct traditions regarding the liturgy and the administering the sacraments.[180] .With more than 1.1 billion baptized members, the Catholic Church is the largest church representing over half of all Christians and one sixth of the world's population.^ I had had this shaking experience before with the more advanced level one techniques of the DVD Course but this time all that was required was correct posture.

The Old Catholic Church is in communion with the Anglican Communion.[184][185]

Orthodox churches

Eastern Orthodoxy comprises those churches in communion with the Patriarchal Sees of the East, such as the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.[186] Like the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church also traces its heritage to the foundation of Christianity through Apostolic succession and has an episcopal structure, though the autonomy of the individual, mostly national churches is emphasized. A number of conflicts with Western Christianity over questions of doctrine and authority culminated in the Great Schism. Eastern Orthodoxy is the second largest single denomination in Christianity, with over 200 million adherents.[181]
The Oriental Orthodox Churches (also called Old Oriental Churches) are those eastern churches that recognize the first three ecumenical councils—Nicaea, Constantinople and Ephesus—but reject the dogmatic definitions of the Council of Chalcedon and instead espouse a Miaphysite christology. The Oriental Orthodox communion comprises six groups: Syriac Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, Ethiopian Orthodox, Eritrean Orthodox, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church (India) and Armenian Apostolic churches.[187] .These six churches, while being in communion with each other are completely independent hierarchically.^ Each APPRENTICE LEVEL is entirely independent of the others and complete in itself.

Protestantism

Historical chart of the main Protestant branches
In the 16th century, Martin Luther, Huldrych Zwingli, and John Calvin inaugurated what has come to be called Protestantism. Luther's primary theological heirs are known as Lutherans. Zwingli and Calvin's heirs are far broader denominationally, and are broadly referred to as the Reformed Tradition.[190] .Most Protestant traditions branch out from the Reformed tradition in some way.^ Believe it or not, there are some stories out there that you may not have heard about - or perhaps didn't look at the way we did.

In addition to the Lutheran and Reformed branches of the Reformation, there is Anglicanism after the English Reformation.

The oldest Protestant groups separated from the Catholic Church in the 16th century Protestant Reformation, followed in many cases by further divisions.[190] For example, the Methodist Church grew out of Anglican minister John Wesley's evangelical and revival movement in the Anglican Church.[192][193] Several Pentecostal and non-denominational Churches, which emphasize the cleansing power of the Holy Spirit, in turn grew out of the Methodist Church.[193][194] .Because Methodists, Pentecostals, and other evangelicals stress "accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior",[195] which comes from John Wesley's emphasis of the New Birth,[196] they often refer to themselves as being born-again.^ The techniques of Energy Enhancement show you how to QUICKLY AND EASILY TRANSMUTE YOUR STRESS because it works at the level of Energy which underlies AND IS THE BASIS of all Life.

[197][198]
Estimates of the total number of Protestants are very uncertain, partly because of the difficulty in determining which denominations should be placed in these categories, but it seems clear that Protestantism is the second largest major group of Christians after Catholicism in number of followers (although the Orthodox Church is larger than any single Protestant denomination).[181]
A special grouping are the Anglican churches descended from the Church of England and organised in the Anglican Communion.. Some Anglican churches consider themselves both Protestant and Catholic.[199] Some Anglicans consider their church a branch of the "One Holy Catholic Church" alongside of the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches, a concept rejected by the Roman Catholic Church and some Eastern Orthodox.[200][201]
Some groups of individuals who hold basic Protestant tenants identify themselves simply as "Christians" or "born-again Christians". They typically distance themselves from the confessionalism and/or creedalism of other Christian communities[202] by calling themselves "non-denominational." Often founded by individual pastors, they have little affiliation with historic denominations.[203]

The Second Great Awakening, a period of religious revival that occurred in the U.S. during the early 1800s, saw the development of a number of unrelated churches. .They generally saw themselves as restoring the original church of Jesus Christ rather than reforming one of the existing churches.^ THE SWORD IN THE STONE - PIEDRA PETER - MY CHURCH IS FOUNDED ON THE ROCK - JESUS CHRIST .

[204] A common belief held by Restorationists was that the other divisions of Christianity had introduced doctrinal defects into Christianity, which was known as the Great Apostasy.[205][206]
Some of the churches originating during this period are historically connected to early-19th century camp meetings in the Midwest and Upstate New York. American Millennialism and Adventism, which arose from Evangelical Protestantism, influenced the Jehovah's Witnesses movement (with 7 million members),[207] and, as a reaction specifically to William Miller, the Seventh-day Adventists. Others, including the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Evangelical Christian Church in Canada, Churches of Christ, and the Independent Christian Churches/Churches of Christ, have their roots in the contemporaneous Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement, which was centered in Kentucky and Tennessee. Other groups originating in this time period include the Christadelphians and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the largest denomination of the Latter Day Saint movement with over 13 million members.[208][209][210][211] While the churches originating in the Second Great Awakening have some superficial similarities, their doctrine and practices vary significantly.

Ecumenism

Most churches have long expressed ideals of being reconciled with each other, and in the 20th century Christian ecumenism advanced in two ways.[212] One way was greater cooperation between groups, such as the Edinburgh Missionary Conference of Protestants in 1910, the Justice, Peace and Creation Commission of the World Council of Churches founded in 1948 by Protestant and Orthodox churches, and similar national councils like the National Council of Churches in Australia which includes Roman Catholics.[212]
The other way was institutional union with new United and uniting churches. Congregationalist, Methodist, and Presbyterian churches united in 1925 to form the United Church of Canada,[213] and in 1977 to form the Uniting Church in Australia. The Church of South India was formed in 1947 by the union of Anglican, Methodist, Congregationalist, Presbyterian, and Reformed churches.[214]
.Steps towards reconciliation on a global level were taken in 1965 by the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches mutually revoking the excommunications that marked their Great Schism in 1054;[215] the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) working towards full communion between those churches since 1970;[216] and the Lutheran and Roman Catholic churches signing The Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification in 1999 to address conflicts at the root of the Protestant Reformation.^ In Energy Enhancement Level 2 the techniques were given to remove those resistances – the first few baby steps towards ultimate freedom.

In 2006, the Methodist church adopted the declaration.[217]

The name was given by the non-Jewish inhabitants of Antioch, probably in derision, to the disciples of Jesus. In the New Testament the names by which the disciples were known among themselves were "brethren", "the faithful", "elect", "saints", "believers". The earliest recorded use of the term "Christianity" (Greek Χριστιανισμός) was by Ignatius of Antioch, around 100 AD. See Elwell/Comfort. Tyndale Bible Dictionary, pp. 266, 828
