Tell us which is your Religion?
My religion is Christianity it is the most widely practiced religion in the world, with more than 2 billion followers. The Christian faith centers on beliefs regarding the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. While it started with a small group of adherents, many historians regard the spread and adoption of Christianity throughout the world as one of the most successful spiritual missions in human history.

We Christian believe in one God the maker of heaven and Earth an in Jesus Christ his only son born in to the world to save mankind from our sin and reunite us with God through prayer. I Am a Roman Catholic member so we go to church every Sunday. Sunday is observe as a holy day we don't go to school, farm nor work we go to church a place or building for worship. In the church we sing, pray, and dance. The priest or holy father is the one that do celebrate mass. We begin the mass with the sign of the cross which represent God the Father, God the son and God the holy Spirit. Then the priest will read the holy Bible, the scripture which contains the birth, life and teaching of Jesus Christ. We Christian also believe in the old testament which contains the ten commandments of God but the greatest commandment which is love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as you love yourself which is part of Jesus teaching. After when the priest finish preaching we will then put offering that is money for the Lord after that we will receive the holy Communion. Only met for practicing Catholics. after that announcement will be made then closing prayer.
