I guess it is a religion because it has a God and a set of Godly morals to live by, even salvation is a free gift.
Exactly, although a religion doesn't necessarily have to belief in a god (Zen Buddhism, for example). That we can have salvation, that we can be in relationship with Jesus, are just a couple of the beliefs that make up the Christian religion.

Some people think that religion is a dirty word, and so go and make their own definition to preclude Christianity from being a religion. But that is simply begging the question. We need to be able to talk sensibly to people and if we deny Christianity is a religion, we look foolish. There is absolutely nothing wrong with accepting Christianity as a religion.

yup it was you sure done a great job there Mod..
At least I can give solid reasons for Christianity being a religion. And just a tip: if you want to insult people, at least use proper grammar.

"well of course how silly of me.. your right i am wrong case closed"--"your" is incorrect; that's possessive. It should be "you're," as in "you are."

You're entitled to disagree.
ya know the covering them self with leaves was a attempt to cover there sin . they realized they was naked but there attempt to cover up and hide did no good. God had to cover them with animal skins .if not careful we want to cover our sin also..

"Since," not "sense". It is rather hypocritical of you to say that I "want to keep this how right [I am] and how wrong [you are]," and then say that my opinion doesn't matter to you. The irony is that I have given reasons and you have not. In no way do I ever deem myself as all-knowing. The fact remains you have given your opinion and not provided any solid reasons whatsoever. You didn't even answer my first post to you; you just ignored it.

You: "Religion excludes people. Relationship includes people." Unsubstantiated opinion.
You: "salvation is not a religion man classifies it as a religion". Again, unsubstantiated opinion.

That is all you have given. No reasoning at all.
