I don't think so. Christianity is not a religion. There are people who call themselves Christians but they are far from it. Christianity is a way of life. A true christian is the one who accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, a born again christian. It is very simple just believe that it is true that is all. I have read the bible and have read the Koran. I did not read both fully but I can tell at the very beginning that they both are so different. the bible is very well written in context in form and is so easy to follow. The Koran is confusing. Just a bunch of sentences that don't follow each other. They don't make sense.

The bible was written many many years ago. It was written by different people at different times some are 100 years or more apart but every book sounds like it was written yesterday the stories follow each other. The writers could not have known what the other was writing about because at that time there was no Internet no newspapers no telegraphs etc. they did not even have a way of printing and to top it all some where persecuted so they where in hiding when they wrote some of the books in the bible. how did they write about the same things how did they relate to each other if they had never met in person? because they were not even born at the same time?

How did the bible manage to stay so well organized in more than 2000 years? without it being changed? They recently found scrolls that where written in Hebrew that when they are translated sound exactly to what the bible says in the same format. This scrolls are parts of the original bible. Only God could have kept it ( word by word) without it being changed by us. There are churches now who are adding things to the bible or taking things out of the bible. When they do that the book does not make sense because it contradicts itself. The bible the true bible will never change because it does not contradict itself is perfect. If you read the Koran and you don't have to read it all it does contradict itself is confusing. The same with other religions they don't make sense, because they are in chaos the are false.

You can take all the religions out of people's life and what you have left is cannibals because they live without any rules is that kind of world you want to live in? Very well then go to the jungles of the amazon they will love to have you there for lunch.
We were created in God's image we have His rules written in our hearts that we can not change just as being born. We all have a soul whether you like it or not its there and will be there for eternity and there is eternity even Einstein new it and he tried to prove it but he died before he could finish it in his theory of everything or now called the String theory. Our little minds can only understand so much. This universe was created for us we are very unique and special. We are created to worship God and to be with Him. He kept everything in order and well organized. Hell is a real place, a place without God a place of darkness and pain. I know there are people that do not want to follow God and will not and will die of old age not knowing Him personally. God is so real and he is a God of love. True Christians will not punish you or hate you for not being a christian. a true christian will love you just the same and help you if you are in need. The bible says if you help the least is like you have done it to Him. Jesus came to this earth and was one of us He was perfect without sin and He lived like that until his Crucifixion. He was the offering of sacrifice for our transgressions that is why if we just believed that it is true He will come and be with us.

God is very real and wants a personal relationship with us. It is us that keep Him away because we refuse to believe that Jesus is the son of God that he really came to earth and died for our sins. We want to do things our way. We hate, we envy, we want to murder, we want to do things to hurt others or blame on others for our failures we hate our parents we hate our own brothers we hate our children without God there is no order is chaos and chaos is destruction. The world is coming to that and few will be saved. The bible talks about the rapture that will happen and predicts the times and the things that will happen before the rapture occurs just like it predicted the coming of Jesus. The bible in the book of revelations tell exactly about Israel becoming a nation again and how the nations around it will make war with Israel and how the temple will be rebuilt the exact dimensions and how the Antichrist will come and call himself God, and that the rapture will occur and then hell will brake lose. I truly pray that many will accept Jesus in their hart and leave before all this bad things happen. I don't know what will people say when Christians disappear and how will they try to explain how we just left.

Don't wait until is too late make sure you know who your real God is.
We are coming to the end of times and we are to be happy because all pain and suffering won't be there for us true Christians but those who are left behind will know what pain and suffering really are. Why is so hard for people to reject their savior? a God who wants to gives us all?

a God who wants us to leave in peace and harmony?
We all go through difficult times in this world whether you are a christian or not. But if you are a christian there is a God in heaven you gives you the peace and joy that surpass all understanding. no matter what terrible things happens to us (Christians) we know that joy will come and lift us up and give us peace to love those who have hurt us and love them like they were us. If we lost loved ones in terrible circumstances we rely on our God for peace and love and He takes away all our sorrow and lets us know that we will see them again and we will be with them soon. Our lives are so short why waist it in hating or worrying about things that won't be there later? We live at the most for 90 years then is eternity. The bible tells us that we will have everything our God is the owner of the universe He made it so perfect He made sure that our planet won't be too close to the sun so it wouldn't burn and not to far that we wouldn't freeze. He made sure birds would have their food on time and if it gets too cold He made sure to put a compass in their little brain to tell them where to go to stay warm. Don't you think He cares that you won't suffer for eternity? He has given us the free will to accept Him or reject Him. His love is not forced upon us He gives it to us freely. Is up to us to take it or let Him go. We are fully guilty of our rejection and therefore deserve hell because some of us just won't accept Him. His love is patient, kind it does not keep record of wrong if you just repent and accept Him. He is merciful and just, and because He is just He will punish those who have freely rejected Him and have not repented of their sins and injustice done unto others. We are all sinners we have all fallen short and we will never be perfect until we have died, but Jesus will cover our sins with His blood on the day of Judgment and we will be found Innocent because we believed, kept the faith and where born again. Our names will be written in the book of life.
