The movement of helping and caring gave a rise to Christianity as that's part of its core. 3. Standing against adultery, abortion, and infanticide. Many people needed these foundations, especially in adultery, which gave equal punishment between males and females. 4. Theology of love and caring of all those on Earth. True understanding of all.
