The religion that I chose to write about for my World Religion Report is the religion of Christianity. Although the Christian religion is not my own I am still going to fill you in on all of the little things that make up the religion and make it the religion that it is today. I will compare and contrast the two religions of Catholic and Christianity. It will compare and contrast the differences and similarities of the two religions. The main thing that you will read about in this report is the religion of Christianity and how it came about. The main thing that you need to know about this religion is that ...view middle of the document...

It is not too far from the place I live but it was not the first place of worship that I visited to decide whether or not I was going to choose this place to do my interview. Once I walked into the Revival Christian Fellowship Church I just knew that it was going to be the place where I was going to find the answers that I was in search of. After I walked through the church and got a tour of the place of worship for Christian followers I was introduced to the pastor that was going to give me all the answers that I was looking for. This church was so down to earth and to the point that I knew that I was in the place that I was supposed to be. It was a huge church that had plenty of seats for people to worship their religion. Since I was so impressed with the place I decided that I would actually go to an actual church service at this place of worship before I did the interview so that I knew that this was the right place. After hearing a sermon from the pastor at this church I absolutely knew that I was in the right place and had the right person that I wanted to get my answers from. This place was absolutely magnificent. It was a packed house on a Sunday morning service and there was not an empty seat in the house. Everyone was singing praising the lord and not one person looked like they had any other thought in the world besides praising the lord. If you would have told me I would be going to Revival Christian Fellowship church to hear a pastor talk about Christianity I would have thought you were crazy. I am not a believer of any religion so hearing a sermon at this church was awesome because I have never heard such a great speech. All in all I thought this was a great place of worship and I knew that once I experienced all of this at that I was going to do my interview here and it was going to be absolutely great.
I always thought that if I had to have an interview with a pastor about religion I was going to be so nervous that I was not going to know what to ask them. I was going to get scared because I do not believe in any religion and they were going to persecute me because I was a non believer. Once I met with the pastor and I started to get comfortable with him. I started to talk to him about his faith and what led him to become a pastor of a Christian church. I was very surprised to hear his answer because it involved him making the wrong decision to make the right one. He also went on to say that not everyone is going to be a believer right away. He stated that once you know that God is in your life and you are a true believer that you will know that there is no other feeling like believing in God and accepting him as your savior. It was amazing to hear him say that because I had never heard anyone talk so in depth and to the point about the religion that they believe in. I was starting to see where his love for the religion came from and why he became the pastor that he is today. I got on with the interview and I was excited to see...
