1.What is the most important belief in Christianity?

Justification by Death-If you live a good and holy life, you will be resurrected into heaven.

2. Why do they believe this?

They believe this because after Jesus lived his life and was crucified, his disciples went to visit his tomb and found that he was not there. They believe that God resurrected him into heaven.

3. Why do Christians follow this religion?

We believe they follow this religion because they are either born into it or because they want to join their loved ones in eternal paradise.

4. How do extremists in Christianity justify it's actions against nonbelievers?

Some extremist Christians threaten, assault, and murder abortion doctors, and bomb abortion clinics. The KKK was an extremist group that wanted to "reestablish protestant Christian values in America by any means possible." They believed that "Jesus was the first clansman." They burnt crosses for intimidation and to demonstrate their respect for Jesus Christ. They did heinous crimes against Jews, African-Americans, and Catholics.

5. Current event regarding Christianity.

In Peidmont, Alabama, the theme of their Christmas parade was "Keep Christ in Christmas" This has angered the F.F.R.F (Freedom From Religion Foundation). The people later changed the theme of the parade, but kept the same religious floats. This has a negative effect on the Christians because it might discourage them from trying to spread the religion or from trying to put this in other parades.

6. Christian Art

"The Last Supper" is an important piece of Christian art because it depicts Jesus' last meal with his apostles. It was created by Leonardo Da Vinci between 1495 and 1488.

7. Christian music

This is the start, this is your heart
This is the day you were born
This is the sun, these are your lungs
This is the day you were born

And I am always, always, always yours
And I am always, always, always yours

These are the scars deep in your heart
This is the place you were born
And this is the hole where most of your soul comes ripping out
From the places you've been torn

And it is always, always, always yours
And I am always, I'm always, I'm always yours

Hallelujah, I'm caving in
Hallelujah, I'm in love again
Hallelujah, I'm a wretched man
Hallelujah, every breath is a second chance, yeah

And it is always, always, always yours
And I am always, I'm always, always yours

Always, always, I'm always yours, I'm yours
Always, always, I'm always yours


The lyrics to the song "Always" relates to Christianity because it signifies that God is always with you from birth to death and beyond. he's with you through love and heartbreak. he'll be with you through your sins.
