When did religion begin? This interesting question is certainly worthy of
consideration, but, before we begin, it is necessary that we have a common understanding
as to the words involved.
Many would say, for instance, that Christianity is not a religion, but a faith. They
would go on to say that religions are man-made attempts to please a god, but that
Christianity is unique in that it is a faith based on the true God Who is not appeased by
man's attempts to reach up to Him, but has reached down to fallen man to bring him the
precious gift of salvation.
