. This would mean that Judaism religion does not have a head or a leader that oversees them but they rather obey what is written in its writings and traditions . Moreover the Judaism church is continually bound to a number of religious practices and beliefs , specifically its belief that there is one omnipotent , omni benevolent , transcended omniscient God who made the heavens and the earth and continually have its control over mankind Judaism only worships one God and believes in Torah , where His commandments are written and must be strictly followed . Jews can worship anywhere but many choose to pray with other Jews at the synagogue . The word synagogue means meeting place . Synagogues are not only places of worship but also centers for study , celebration and for the community to meet
Christianity , The original basic beliefs of Christianity are stated in the Apostles ' Creed . It affirms that Jesus Christ is the son of God and that God sent him to earth to live as a man and to suffer and die for the redemption of mankind . It also states the belief that Jesus , after being crucified , arose from the dead and ascended to heaven , from which he will return to earth to judge the living and the dead . Belief that Jesus was born of a virgin mother and that there is a life for man after death are essential parts of the creed
Man 's need for help from a higher power was stressed in religious earlier than Christianity . The concept of God as benevolent and forgiving - rather than as vengeful - is a main tenet of the Christian 's faith . Another Christian belief is that even though man has sinned seriously and separated himself from the love of God , he can be saved by repentance and accept Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior . The necessity , and therefore the possibility , of communion between God and man is accepted by all Christians . At first , the gospel of Jesus was spread by his disciples , followers who remembered his sayings . As Gentiles (non-Jews ) as well as Jews entered the church , the influence of other minds began to be seen in the interpretations of doctrines . In this work , early Christian theologians borrowed ideas from the teachings of the Greek philosophers . At the same time , national traits and customs began to affect rituals and observances . There are other differences . The Disciples of Christ and certain Protestant groups insist upon using the Bible alone as a source...
