Many people have given their lives to further the growth of the Church throughout the world and indeed many have admitted that even if God Himself were to visit them and suggest Joseph Smith was not really His messenger, they would not believe him, but would rather believe in Joseph Smith. This type of fanatical belief is indicative of how this belief has grown and perhaps that it may well be considered in the realm of “cultism” as well as simple religion?

Undoubtedly, Christianity has suffered many fractures throughout the years. Denominations did not exist in the first century because everybody belonged to the same church, the church that was founded by Jesus Christ and his Apostles.

Sadly, there are some Christians denominations that they walk away from the Scripture making emphasis in worldly things and taking away biblical concepts as holiness, sanctification, repentance and many other biblical trues.
Jesus’s name has been banned from being taught in many countries around the world. However in these countries Christianity is steadily growing. The Holy Spirit, that is what gives persecuted Christ followers the courage to teach Jesus, is always around believers and un-believers: the Holy spirit cannot be banned. Believing this simple truth, we know that Christianity changes the individual, the culture, and the government. There is a plethora of tales of Christ changing people for; C.S. Lewis was a devout Atheist turned Christian.

In terms of their role in the Christian Sociological model, Stuckenberg (1880) holds that the individual "in society is a representative of Christ and of" the "Gospel" (Matt. 5:13-15) where their testimony leads the world to judge Christianity (p. 266). Their "conduct before others should be in harmony with his true worth and dignity" (Stuchenberg, 1880, p. 267).
Christianity then spread throughout the Roman Empire. Paul 's greatest long-term impact lay in his letters, which were often written to deal with specific problems that had arisen. These letters were accepted very early as authoritative statements about Christian belief and conduct. Paul, through his teaching and writing, helped to consolidate Christian beliefs. He took the teachings of Jesus, explained them, and applied them to new situations that arose in churches.
