Christianity isn't a Religion

Christianity isn't a Religion
I've heard many times from Christians that Christianity isn't a Religion. It's a relationship with God.

So? It's still a Religion.

First time I heard this.

When making such a huge claim like god, it automaticly becomes a religion.

Not sure what there trying to pull off.

Mankind's intelligence walks hand in hand with it's stupidity.

Being an atheist says nothing about your overall intelligence, it just means you don't believe in god. Atheists can be as bright as any scientist and as stupid as any creationist.

You never really know just how stupid someone is, until you've argued with them.

Did they not read the definition of religion in a dictionary? Bizarre. o.o;

I'm a Christian and I find that claim to be quite silly

RE: Christianity isn't a Religion
religion
- beliefs and worship: people's beliefs and opinions concerning the existence, nature, and worship of a deity or deities, and divine involvement in the universe and human life
- system: an institutionalized or personal system of beliefs and practices relating to the divine

I think it's a religion according to this definition.This forum makes no sense at all.
There is nothing people will not maintain when they are slaves to superstition

RE: Christianity isn't a Religion
In the blogosphere recently there has been a load of new religions cropping up, mainly due to Ray Comfort (idiotic theist) using a rather generic definition of religion ("A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion.") to try and class atheism as a religion. Pretty much every atheist pointed out that this definition meant that a task like stamp collecting could qualify.

Atheism is not a Religion
Christianity is a Religion

Both Ath and Christ are organisation and practice of personal beliefs of way of existance on Earth, duch as praying to the Lord or researching the truth.

The only real difference is that each Atheist is unique and not a sheep to the organisations methods...
