False prophets ( antichrists ) stole the spoken and written words of God's saints who testified to the invisible Word of God ( Christ ) and used them for their own benefit to control people who listen to them and their false gospels. This eventually lead to the organized false religion called Christianity today. It's described as the "iron and clay" part of the beast that you can read about in the book of Daniel. The Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican are they symbolic "iron" part and the Protestant churches that have broken up into 40,000 denominations and many other phony religions are they symbolic "clay" part of the beast.

I don't know if it is correct, but I'd say Christianity has its origins in pagan religions which would eventually led to 30,000 plus denominations.

Christian, from the greek word "]5;`1;_3;`3;`4;_3;^5;_7;P57;`2;" or "Christianos" meaning, "Of Christ" much like how an oklahoman is of oklahoma, or a barbarian is of barbaric nature.

As for your character limit, that is the tool of someone who does not really want an answer. (222 btw)

I have no idea what you mean by 222, but i noticed that you used the word Christ, which is what newt has already got his knickers in a knot about.
The title Christ should be at least mentioned in such a description, I agree.

First, I apologize for the error in my last response. I attempted to make use of some greek, but the site does not like it.
Second, the 222 was the number of characters that I made use of to explain my position.
Third, what do you think about my answer?

I already agreed that an explanation of the word christianity would of necessity reference the christ after which it is named.

It's 180 words not characters. About 18 lines. What is the problem?

The issue is how Christianity got its name not the origin of many of its doctrines and traditions (although you are correct about the pagan roots of the latter).

We were discussing this in another thread, but would it surprise you to know that an early Christian church father, Theophilus, patriarch and bishop of Antioch c. 170CE, wrote this as an explanation for the origin of the name:

Book1, Chapter 12. Meaning of the Name Christian.

And about your laughing at me and calling me Christian, you know not what you are saying. First, because that which is anointed is sweet and serviceable, and far from contemptible. For what ship can be serviceable and seaworthy, unless it be first caulked [anointed]? Or what castle or house is beautiful and serviceable when it has not been anointed? And what man, when he enters into this life or into the gymnasium, is not anointed with oil? And what work has either ornament or beauty unless it be anointed and burnished? Then the air and all that is under heaven is in a certain sort anointed by light and spirit; and are you unwilling to be anointed with the oil of God? Wherefore we are called Christians on this account, because we are anointed with the oil of God.


Note that there is no mention of Jesus Christ here. In fact there is no mention of Jesus in three whole books he wrote trying to convert a learned pagan to Christianity.

The Greek word Christos does not mean "of Christ", it actually means "annointed". Theophilus has it correct. So instead of Christianity being named after Jesus Christ, it appears that Jesus was given the title Christ when he was tacked on to the existing Christianity as it existed at least 140 years after his alleged life.

Lovely that you reported me, it absolutely proves every time that you get it wrong.

Now do you mean personal "actions" or do you mean personal "accusations"?

It matters not, since this is your ultimate SIG.

Acts 11:26
ASV(i) 26 and when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that even for a whole year they were gathered together with the church, and taught much people; and that the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

That is the first mention of the term Christian ion scripture.

You notice there is no mention of who coined it or why, just that Antioch was the first place it was used.

The name originates from the name "Christ", the Nazarean crucified in 33AD by Pontius Pilate.

Thank you goo.

Have you heard of one of the earliest Christian Fathers who described it sans any mention of said 'christ" (a title after all) when explaining the origin of the name when writing a letter to a pagan friend trying to convert that friend?

But it's fine you will either ignore it or convince yourself it's a lie or convince yourself that he just forgot. That is the only way you can get to heaven after all.

Not necessarily, it depends whether or not his friend had heard of Jesus the Nazarene before, which he might well have done, given the spread of Christianity around Judea.

It seems like he is alluding to Jesus' baptism.

He was a Bishop of Antioch in about 180AD. One would have thought that he would know why he was called a christian, especially when he was trying to convert a pagan friend and he was a convert himself.

Oh, he was a Bishop in 180AD? Firstly, that is hardly the earliest time at which the Christian Church was founded. It was founded by Paul of Tarsus even earlier than 180AD. Second, by 180AD, Rome had become Christian, so maybe he presumed his pagan friend had already heard the basics about Christianity and was giving him more intimate details about it.

But it's fine you will either ignore it or convince yourself it's a lie or convince yourself that he just forgot. That is the only way you can get to heaven after all.

I am a deist, not a Christian.

And about your laughing at me and calling me Christian, you know not what you are saying. First, because that which is anointed is sweet and serviceable, and far from contemptible. For what ship can be serviceable and seaworthy, unless it be first anointed? Or what castle or house is beautiful and serviceable when it has not been anointed? And what man, when he enters into this life or into the gymnasium, is not anointed with oil? And what work has either ornament or beauty unless it be anointed and burnished? Then the air and all that is under heaven is in a certain sort anointed by light and spirit; and are you unwilling to be anointed with the oil of God? Wherefore we are called Christians on this account, because we are anointed with the oil of God.

Where the fuk did you get that from? ROFL
He was a Bishop of Antioch in about 180AD. One would have thought that he would know why he was called a christian, especially when he was trying to convert a pagan friend and he was a convert himself.

Oh, he was a Bishop in 180AD? Firstly, that is hardly the earliest time at which the Christian Church was founded. It was founded by Paul of Tarsus even earlier than 180AD. Second, by 180AD, Rome had become Christian, so maybe he presumed his pagan friend had already heard the basics about Christianity and was giving him more intimate details about it.
Rome was christian in 180AD? WTF? You have exactly as much knowledge as I knew you did. NONE. Stop pretending and stop pretending to be what your not, you are the most pathetic of children. You aren't even a POE.
But it's fine you will either ignore it or convince yourself it's a lie or convince yourself that he just forgot. That is the only way you can get to heaven after all.

I am a deist, not a Christian.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaqhahahahahahahahaha

You are a LIAR.

Would you be so kind as to provide that description? Thank you.

The name originates from the name "Christ", the Nazarean crucified in 33AD by Pontius Pilate.

Thank you goo.

Have you heard of one of the earliest Christian Fathers who described it sans any mention of said 'christ" (a title after all) when explaining the origin of the name when writing a letter to a pagan friend trying to convert that friend? Do you think it strange that one of the earliest christian bishops would neglect to mention the VERY FIRST thing you presented as an origin for the name christianity?

Not necessarily, it depends whether or not his friend had heard of Jesus the Nazarene before, which he might well have done, given the spread of Christianity around Judea.
You have absolutely no idea about what you are desperately trying to lie about. That is really pathetic.
Here is how on of the earliest bishops of "christ" described the name "christianity".
