  • YES. Religion is man-made period.
  • Yes, just like every religion.
  • I'm still trying to figure out how people are defining Christianity. However, if we are only talking of people who follow what Jesus taught then he taught people to pray to and follow God. That's true and not man made.
  • Either that or, like everything else, it was made in China. ._.
  • Yes it is.
  • Of course it is!
  • All religion is elf-admittedly man-made. No one has been crazy enough to claim true divine conception of scripture, I don't think. No one mainstream. They all like to claim it was divinely inspired, but it's still an invention of man.
  • All religions are man made. Even the word religion is man made. Without us the concept would never have been invented. Does anything else, other than man, worship god? Our excuse being, of course, that everything else is to stupid to recognise the divine. IMO its the other way around.
  • Jesus was a man. That has never been in dispute. So yes.
  • Yes. They all are. +5
  • Religion is man-made, all flavours.
  • +3 Yes - No question about it. . There's no evidence that Jesus, Peter, Paul or John even existed let alone were connected in any way with the divine. . Paul (if he existed) never met Jesus (if he did) even though he was supposedly living in Jersusalem at the time. He knows virtually nothing about what the gospels say Jesus did or taught and doesn't even seem to know when Jesus was supposedly crucified despite claiming to be an obsessive persecutor of Jesus' followers. . The gospels give different accounts of what supposedly happened during Jesus' lifetime and weren't written until many decades after the events they purport to be describing. . The one messianic prophecy that might be meaningful (i.e., the ushering in of an age of peace) is about as far from being met as it's possible to get. . The whole idea of there being a 'son' of a supposedly omnipotent, omniscient superbeing is a nonsense in itself, which leads on to the whimsical and obviously deranged notion of the 'trinity'...... need I go on?
  • The popular gospel (Christ died for our sins) came from Paul/Saul who terrorized the first followers of Christ and thus is man made. This will explain the difference between the gospel Christ taught and the gospel we hear these days: http://gospelenigma.com So yes, the kind of Christianity we hear these days is man made.
  • 5-28-2017 You have asked two questions. The bible says all religions are man made, and God has a poor opinion of them. Christianity is not a religion, although there is a religion that uses the same name. Christianity is defined in Romans 10:9&10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." There is nothing there about the crap that religionists claim you have to do.
  • Yes as it was not set up by its central character - Jesus - as he was a follower of a different religion. Paul the apostle create Christianity based on his "visions" of Jesus. Sort of like how Joseph Smith created Mormonism based on his "visions" of the Plates.
  • In the sense that Jesus was a man I'd say yes however the actual religion was originated by God.
