Are there any novel concepts uniquely attributable to Christianity?
Think I've asked this of Fullerene before and he said "No." if memory serves.

Golden Rule? No. Rising from the dead? No. Qualified salvation? No. So now I'm opening it up to the forum. Is there any concept which can be uniquely attributed to Christianity? What about transubstantiation? Haven't done the research but I doubt it.

Is there anything unique about Christianity or is it just a selective aggregation and amalgamation of previously proposed concepts? A metaphysical Drudge Report.

Worshipping the instrument of their deity's murder?

Consider

They wouldn't be the only religion to worship a trinity, (of gawd, son, & holy ghost) but still claim monotheism, would they?

Gotta be something in Greek, Roman or Norse mythology to cover that one.

Don't think so, but not certain.

This may take a while.

Pastors who are stupid enough to ask his audience to purchase him a private jet. That can only be a Christian thing right?

The Moonies?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
