Article: How do religions die?


How do religions die?

By John A. David

A student of theology, a bible teacher and a graphics designer. I ramble a lot about Christian faith, apologetics and atheism.

One reply on “Article: How do religions die?”

I believe the author is wrong in stating “there can be no first Christian” because Christianity is based on historic events which had a beginning in real historic time. The first Christian could be considered the person who died next to Christ on the cross or perhaps the woman who discovered the empty tomb. Whoever it was it can be defined in a fairly limited time span after the resurrection of Christ. The debate would only be who was the first person to use the word “Christian” to define their beliefs and even that is suggested by a reading of Acts of the Apostles..
