I used to be a Christian, but that was a while back.

Basically this is where you can talk about anything that has to do with Christian beliefs. You can talk about Catholic or Protestant sides of it, whatever. AS long as it has to do with something Christian.

I just found that a lot of stuff didn't add up, and didn't like all the stuff they were trying to tell me and stuff. Basically, I found that being an Agnostic fit me better.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with a decent amount that Christianity says, but not most of it.

Orthodox is almost the same as Christianity right Feral? If not, then I need to ask Gabs (Sinitar)

Anyway, as far as I'm concerned, christianity never support divorce. It has been stated that once you marry someone in a church or under divine law, you are bound to it or as how I know it.

I don't know whats the difference with these 'Roman Catholic' and 'Baptist' and simply 'Catholic' Christians either. Any of you guys want to tell me?

I also wanted to ask you Christians about whether you believe there to be other gods apart from your Christ. What was there before he was born? Whom did the people worship then?

I didn't know that you are a lutheran Keith, though, I don't know what lutheran people do. Hammer Death Who do you worship? (if you are worshipping someone like a god) Also, what do you call your religion? Lutherianism? (Just a guess)

well, I have only heard of that religion vaguely. Reading it triggered the memory. Anyway,

artrain, even if two or three or even four religions believe in god, they still have different celebrations, and different meanings and symbols to things. any type of Christian believes in god, that or they are something else. I cant really answer the last question, because Im orthodox, but I can say what we believe in?

well, Jesus was still there, just not in human form.

Baptists are a group of Christian denominations, churches, and individuals who subscribe to a theology of believer's baptism (as opposed to infant baptism), salvation through faith alone, Scripture alone as the rule of faith and practice, and the autonomy of the local church. They are generally characterized by the practice of immersion (as opposed to affusion or sprinkling) and a disavowal of authoritative creeds. Baptist churches are regarded as falling within the family of Protestantism, and some churches or individuals further identify with evangelicalism or fundamentalism. Diverse from their beginning, those identifying as Baptists today differ widely from one another in what they believe, how they worship, their attitudes toward other Christians, and their understanding of what is important in Christian discipleship.

Baptists number over 110 million worldwide in more than 220,000 congregations and are considered the largest world communion of Protestants. 2009 marked the 400th anniversary of the first Baptist congregation.

Most Christians believe the same thing don't we? I mean we beleive in the Bible most of us anyway. We believe in the creation, the Flood, and so on and so forth are religion's just have some differences but not as far apart as people believe. For example Catholics believe that Gods day the Sabbath was changed to Sunday and others do to, But other religions believe that Saturday is still the Sabbath, I am one of them, I just don't see why so many people make such a big deal out of someones religion being different because they are really not that far apart as people make them out to be.

Feral. As Christians, the bible says it's only okay to divorce if the other spouse is cheating on you, and wants to leave. That's the only time it's considered acceptable...although many Christians these days are bending that rule and it makes me sad.

There are some large differances in beliefs with Christians, for instance, Baptists don't believe in any Alchohol and dancing.

Well I'm certainly not religious (anymore) but I am far too informed about this so I thought I'd answer some of the questions...not the ones regarding why Christians believe what they believe, because although I guess I got answers for that, but I’ll leave it to those who will actually be sharing their own beliefs and reasons I think.
Rain Stinks wrote:

Well I think that Zach explained this one, but the faith basically stems from the idea that children should not be baptised soon after birth. They believe that only adults in a faith should be baptised.

Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity were originally a whole belief. In the first few centuries the two main religious centres for Christianity in the world were Rome and Constantinople. Sometime after the year 1000 the two places separated forming two different faiths. To this day Christianity and Orthodoxy remain pretty similar, sharing almost the same beliefs, and Orthodoxy is not stricter than Catholicism as far as I’m aware. Though it is far less lenient than the various other denominations.

The four main branches of Christianity are Catholicism, Protestantism, the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox. There are also various other lesser denominations across the world. Each follows different teachings but with the overall Christian belief in the Holy Trinity. Catholicism was the original worldwide faith. (Catholic and Roman Catholic are one and the same – the ‘Roman’ part is just describing how the Catholic Church is based in Rome). There are also various other smaller denominations, one of which is Baptist Christianity. Overall each of these denominations has the same beliefs in God, but different views on how the faith should be put into practice and different ideas on ‘the best way to live’. For example, someone mentioned divorced. Catholics believe that divorce and remarriage is the same as adultery, that once you marry someone you are bound with them for the rest of your live. Protestants on the other hand don’t have a problem with divorce, whilst Methodists share the beliefs of Catholics, and Baptists are inconclusive. Some have no problem with divorce whilst others do not support it. So even within denominations different views exist. Originally Catholicism was the one belief, the Protestant church was established at some point in the sixteenth century by those who didn’t agree with the practices of Catholicism, various other branches were created at a similar point and also later on.
And in answer to the second lot of questions(hope it’s okay that I talk about this, you did say ‘you Christians’ but anyway, Christians believe in the Holy Trinity, which is made up of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, i.e. God, Jesus. A triune God that is itself a single entity. They believe that God always existed, and his son Christ was sent to Earth at the time when he was to reaffirm people’s beliefs and to save the people. It was his death that made it possible for people to repent and have their sins forgiven. The faith is based in Christ’s teachings, but they also accept all the teachings of the Prophets that came before him.

Right well this is all I’ve got in regard to the differences: Catholics believe that to be a part of their faith and practice Catholicism well you must be baptised and united with God. You have to practices the Catholic virtues. (I won’t get into that) On the other hand Lutherans (sorry I’m kind of telling you about your own faith here) but basically, as you’ll know they believe that all you need is faith in God. There is also of course the fact that Catholics believe in the Pope as a religious authority on Earth whereas Lutherans believe only in following God. There are probably other things I’m not aware of but as far as I know other than what I’ve said the two denominations are pretty similar.

My question is, did the Christians discover their god after Christ was born, or were they aware of him even before it? To say god always existed is very easy now. I was wondering if the people who lived in the "B.C." realized that or not. And if they did, what/how was his nature?
