Christianity (from the Ancient Greek: Χριστιανός Christianos and the Latin suffix -itas) is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as presented in canonical gospels and other New Testament writings as well as the Old Testament. Most adherents of the Christian faith, known as Christians, believe that Jesus is the Son of God, fully divine and fully human and the savior of humanity prophesied in the Old Testament. Consequentially, Christians commonly refer to Jesus as Christ or Messiah.
The foundation of Christian theology is expressed in the early ecumenical creeds which contain claims predominantly accepted by followers of the Christian faith. These professions state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, and was subsequently resurrected from the dead in order to grant eternal life to those who believe in him and trust him for the remission of their sins. They further maintain that Jesus bodily ascended into heaven where he rules and reigns with God the Father. Most denominations teach that Jesus will return to judge all humans, living and dead, and grant eternal life to his followers. He is considered the model of a virtuous life, and his ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection are often referred to as the gospel, meaning "Good News" (a loan translation of the Greek: εὐαγγέλιον euangélion).
Christianity began as a Jewish sect in the mid-1st century. Originating in the Levant region of the Middle East, it quickly spread to Syria, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor and Egypt. It grew in size and influence over a few centuries, and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire, replacing other forms of religion practiced under Roman rule. 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, Ethiopia and parts of India. Following the Age of Discovery, Christianity spread to the Americas, Australasia, sub-Saharan Africa, and the rest of the world through missionary work and colonization. Christianity has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization.
Worldwide, the three largest groups of Christianity are the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the various denominations of Protestantism. The Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox patriarchates split from one another in the schism of the 11th century, and Protestantism came into existence during the Reformation of the 16th century, splitting from the Roman Catholic Church. As of the early 21st century, Christianity is the world's largest religion, with approximately 2.2 billion adherents.

Where in the bible does it say blasphemy will be forgiven?
Q. I comitted blasphemy on Christ before I'm only 14. I have asked on yahoo answers before saying yes and no. My Sunday school teacher said god will forgive anything. It says in the bible god won't forgive blasphemy on Christ. But I'm receiving answers saying I will get forgived. Where does it say god will forgive blasphemy in the bible or what makes you think god will forgive blasphemy not that I'm disagreeing I'm just asking. Also this isn't my main question but if your a non Christian aren't you comitting blasphemy.

A. It seems pretty clear to me... Mark 3 'Assuredly, I [Jesus] say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation. In Matthew 12:31-32, Jesus says to the Pharisees, "Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come" That doesn't really fit with modern day Christianity though, so best we forget that one.

What is the difference between Christian and Christian Orthodox?
Q. I was baptised as a Christian Orthodox but I have not been practicing for the last 9 years since I have left my home country. There aren't any Christian Orthodox churches nearby but I feel it's time to learn more about religion and let God in my life. My university has Christian worship nights and I would like to go to them. I also feel that I would be more welcome with them than with the Romanian Orthodox church. I'm confused what the difference between Christian and Christian Orthodox?

A. There are many sects of Christianity that do not hold to the teachings of the ancient Christian Church. Among these are all the Protestants. The Orthodox Church has held steadfastly to the doctrines it received from the early church, with out addition or deletion. Primarily, most of the Protestant churches reject several points of the creed, if not all of it, and do not have sacraments ("mysteries", in the Orthodox Church) at all. University for Orthodox Christian students can be a lonely time. Keep the faith; say your prayers, read the scriptures and study Orthodox spiritual works. Blessings. /Orthodox More on Orthodox Christianity:
