I'm not really sure what you mean by "took off".  Christianity certainly started in the Roman Empire.  But Ethiopia and Armenia both adopted Christianity as their state religion some time in the early 4th century, before it was made the state religion of the Roman Empire.  And at the time of Constantine's conversion, about a tenth of the Empire had already converted.


Yes, like gangrene, it's spread rather fast.

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.

I would think when Christianity stopped being persecuted in the Roman empire those areas are  minuscule when compared


Barbaric Tribes even became Christians

Also, just because an area/country like Ethiopia make an official religion doesn't mean it'a a majority

Ethiopia today has a 60% Christianity %.  There was a lot of new converts in the modern era.

In that case then how come that most priests don't do a thing?


To be fair,  some of them bugger children.

I really have no idea what points you're trying to make in this post.

Yes, and the church prevents them from getting their just pay for that, IE a lifetime in jail!

When I was a Christian, other more elder Church members would often say " It's a personal relationship with Christ and not religion "

It's religion no matter how you spin it!   Wink


I do agree that Christianity is classified as a religion. We Christians believe our faith is true religion. The reason why you will meet Christians who say Christianity is not a religion is because of all the negative $tereotypes atheists cast on the word "religion," making it out to be an ugly and undesirable word. But Christianity is a religion just as atheism is. Atheism is a secular religion but its roots are traced back to various pagan cults that held to the exact same beliefs as atheists believe here in the 21st century. Atheism and Christianity are also called worldviews.

It is difficult to put into words how outstandingly, majestically stupid this is.

Try and grace us with your superior IQ and intellect.  Your remarks are void of anything adult like.

Why didn't you post something intelligent about his remarks?  Ah right, they're unintelligible gibberish.

I saw no insults from Fez so if you have an issue, try losing the typical political swamp talk and engage OR just ignore his posts.  Pretty straight forward.  Not really interested, if you have yet to figure this out, in turning this forum into an insult fest.  You can simply agree to disagree. I think the cancer of the usual dialogue tends to spill out to other forums and I prefer conversations rather then child like insults.  It does nothing but show a level of immaturity or inability to discuss topics that you may not know much of.
