|A Christian is a person who adheres to Christianity, a monotheistic religion centered on the life and teachings of Jesus of
Nazareth as presented in the New Testament. The core belief is that Jesus is the Son of God and the Messiah
prophesied in the Old Testament. According to Christians Christ is a member of the Holy Trinity (three in one) along with
the Holy Spirit and God Himself. He willingly took the form and body of man to provide himself as a living sacrifice for the
salvation of mankind. He was crucified and rose again three days later and is seated at the right hand of his Father, God.
Christianity has the largest following, however is aligned with two major groups, Catholicism and Protestant, with the
Protestant group into thousands of smaller groups. Catholics believe that a single "prophet", the Pope, is the person
closest to God on Earth and God reveals thing to the Pope who is responsible to show Christians how to remain faithful.
Protestants belief that God reveals Himself to individuals who are able to have a direct relationship through Jesus Christ
and also that prayers are intercepted and interpreted by the Holy Spirit.
