'''Christianity''' is a religion which is rooted in the concept that God manifested himself as a separate entity, [[Jesus Christ]], for all eternity. God came to Earth as Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin, and died at the hands of men, to save men from their sins. Christianity underwent two major splits in its history. In the waning days of the [[Roman Empire]], Catholics in the Western Roman Empire and mainly speaking Latin split from Eastern Orthodox in the Greek-speaking Eastern Roman Empire. The Catholic Pope resides in Rome, Italy, and the Eastern headquarters was in Constantinople. The second split happened in the 16th century when [[Martin Luther]] nailed a statement to a church door protesting corruption and decadence within the Catholic Church. More recently, a unique branch of Christians called [[Mormons]] emerged in the United States. They founded Salt Lake City, Utah, and are currently one of the fastest growing religious sects in the world. ==Branches== * [[Catholic]] - Catholics are loyal to the Pope in Rome, Italy. They believe in a [[Holy Trinity]], which includes the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. * [[Eastern Orthodox]] - Includes [[Greek Orthodox]], [[Russian Orthodox]], and a number of smaller groups of Christians * [[Protestant]] - Includes [[Lutherans]], [[Methodist]]s, [[Episcopalian]]s, [[Unitarian]]s, [[Presbyterian]]s, et al. * [[Evangelical]] ==See also== * [[Hinduism]] * [[Islam]] [[Category:Theology]] [[Category:Religions]] [[Category:Theologies]]
