Why do people call Christianity a bad religion , because of the things that happened in the name of Christ?
But Christ didn't say to kill in his name. He told us not to.
He said , "I did not come to bring peace , but a sword"
He doesn't give us a literal sword , but a sword of faith , to defend ourselves .
Even in Exodus , God gave us the commandment that tells us not to use God's name in vain.
Using God's name in vain doesn't mean to curse his name. But using his name in vain , means to use his name where it isn't needed.
People don't need God's name to kill , because it isn't needed.
By killing someone in God's name , you break two commandments.
And took God's name in vain.
People shouldn't blame bad things on the religion , but they should blame the founder of the religion , on the religion.
Muhammad founded Islam.
Christ founded Christianity .
Muhammad was a slave owner , a warlord , and a name that was feared in enemy nations.
Christ was sinless. He preached love and forgiveness of everyone.
The crusades didn't happen because of Christ. But the crusades happened , because of the pope.
