Something else I wanted to add. It's been mentioned in the posts above about the horrible things the Catholic church as done.
Make no mistake: The Catholic Church is NOT Christianity, nor are they the authoritative word on the same.
As with any organization put in a position of power, they became the target of corruption. Do not look at the Catholic church as an example of what
Christianity is about.
According to the scriptures, Christ came to do one thing alone. Yes, He died on the cross to save us from our sins, yes He healed the poor, brought
to His flock disciples and apostles, and set into place a faith that ultimately led to the downfall of almost all pagan religions and contributed to
the fall of Rome... but that was all a side bar.
Christ said Himself why he was sent in Luke 4:43
But he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also, for therefore am I sent.
and He charged the apostles to do the same. It is what every Christian church should be doing, but it was lost along the way. If it had not been
lost as it was, there would be no accusations of Christianity performing horribl acts of violence.
And for the person who blamed Christians for all the bad things in this world... give me a break.
I am not a minister, or a preacher, or a fanatical Christian. I am simply a man who studies these things. I never limited myself to Christianity...
I test the things I read and hear, and I believe Christianity to be a truism. NO one has been able to prove to me otherwise.
