  • Christianity- The most prominent religion of the world

    With 1.1 billion followers, Catholic religion has the largest count of followers around the world. Its history dates back to the classic Greek age of Aristotle and Polybuis when the word Catholic was used freely by the Christian writers.

    Founded by Jesus Christ who is considered by many as the most influential person among all human beings, the catholic religion’s history is traced back to the apostolic times. The catholic religion started with the consecration of Peter by Jesus who founded the first church in Rome, thus starting a line of Popes. The earliest mention of Christian church of catholic religion was in the Letter to the Smyrnaeans written by Ignatius of Antioch in 107

    From the beginning, the beliefs of the catholic religion are based on the teachings of Jesus and the Holy book of Bible. This religion spans the time of 2,000 years and it acknowledges the strength of the Holy Spirit to bring people to salvation. The catholic religion believes in the existence of one eternal entity or God, which co-exist as mutual built-in of three persons- the God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The catholic followers believe that the Church is the persevering presence of Jesus on earth. It teaches that people who believe in Jesus and are nourished with the Body of Christ become the Body of Christ.

    Another important part of the catholic religion is the teachings of the Gospel. Some of the other beliefs of the church are that the Holy Spirit unveils the truth of God through the Sacred Scripture or the Holy Bible. The Old Testament and the New Testament make up the 73 book Catholic book of Bible. It teaches throughout the world about the practice of mercy by feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and imprisoned, welcoming the strangers and burying the dead.

     The followers of the catholic religion attend Mass on Sundays and the holy days of obligation, should confess their sins at least once in a year, receive the Eucharist during the Easter season, observe fast during the prescribed days by the church and help the church with provision it needs. Thus, continuing the teachings of the prominent religion over the years.
