Christianity means the ‘way of Christians’, more specifically the followers of Jesus ‘Christ’. Christ(Hellenic term) was a messianic title, who would restore the lost glory of Hebreu(עִבְרִית-jews) political sovereignty in Israel. Per contra, Churchianity is the common practice of the church(denominational) members. The realist view is that a Church is the Christian political and social institution and ruled by a Bishop(Lord prince). One basic feature of the church is playing of language game since the time of Constantine (330 CE). One can found a mixture of multiple national words, greek, roman, hebrew, english and local languages in church vocabulary. The usage depends on the suitability. For example when the fighting and contesting churches(non-governmental organisations) would come together for peace— they may call it ‘ecumenical’ or to indicate a big church building they may say basilica etc

Byzantine church Hagia Sophia was converted to a mosque by Muslim Fanatics: No Lord`s prayer but Namaz shall be offered henceforth
After that Turkish Supreme Court, struck down the 1934 Cabinet decree on 10th July 2020, which turned Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia into a museum (under Mustafa Kemal Atatürk; 1881-1938), paving the way for its use again as a mosque after an 85-year hiatus. The decision said that in its title deed, Hagia Sophia was defined as a “mosque” and this cannot be legally changed.
The reader should remember that Jesus never wrote any book himself, as Plato, Philo, or Marcus Aurelius did; nor even, like Socrates, transmitted his teaching to educated men, but that he spoke to many uneducated men and only long after his death did people begin to write down what they had heard about him. The reader should remember that there were very many such accounts from among which the Churches selected first three Gospels and then one more, and that in selecting those best Gospels as the proverb,-‘There is no stick without knots’ says-they had to take in many knots with what they selected from the whole mass of writings about Christ, and that there are many passages in the canonical Gospels just as poor as in the rejected apocryphal ones.

That abstraction, that caput mortuum, absolutely void of all contents the true nothing, God, is proclaimed the only real, eternal, all-powerful being. The real All is declared nothing and the absolute nothing the All. The shadow becomes the substance and the substance vanishes like a shadow.
In Christianity, the whole fraud is built up on the fantastic conception of a Church ; a conception founded on nothing, and which as soon as we begin to study Christianity amazes us by its unexpected and useless absurdity. Of all the godless ideas and words there is none more godless than that of a Church. There is no idea which has produced more evil, none more inimical to Christ’s teaching, than the idea of a Church.
