The Top Ten

1 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). ...read more.

I can't stand when people talk about things they know absolutely nothing about. This post is about Jesus. For one thing Jesus was absolutely not a white man. I'm a 45 year old white man, correct term, I'm Caucasian. If He was white He would have been the only one around there and that would have definitely been written in one of the four accepted gospels because He's portrayed that way anyway. Jesus was from Bethlehem, Palestine. Ok so if all Christians are white supremacists that voted for Trump why are they worshipping a man/God that's not white? You probably should have said something along those lines. We can discuss things without pushing our beliefs on one another because I'm not a Christian and I wanted Ben Carson as president, an African American genius surgeon. Watch the movie about his life starring Cuba Gooding Jr. Also I don't believe Christians or any other religion should push their beliefs on anyone else. There is a way and that is to present facts not your beliefs and ...more

As a Christian, I must say that I love that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. We're all sinners, but we can be forgiven of them. If you have Jesus in your heart, you can get to Heaven when you die, an amazing place where there is no pain or sadness, and we'll be there forever.

Jesus should always be at number one. Everyone knows him!

Who is that weird person at the current number one by the way?

How is that rapist higher than Jesus? that's really makes me lose the faith in humanity.

2 Muhammad Muhammad (570 AD - 632 AD) was an Arabian Prophet, best known as the central figure (and last prophet) of the Abrahamic religion of Islam and is amongst the most revered and important historical figures in the world.

The Best Man In The World.
Awarded By US Supreme Court As The Best LawGiver Of The World.

In Catholicism, they believe that Muhammad is a false prophet but even if that is true, you should still respect the religion.

He proved to be a successful leader, warrior, religious leader and in every field of life, he is an embodiment.

Also a convicted rapist

The man who had 8 wives is a rapist? Yeah what a logic you have, also his wives were widows and he treated them nicely and he was also nice to them.
You anti-Muslim are weird first you say "he is a prevent who had 8 wives" then you call him a rapist? How would you feel if I called Jesus a rapist? (That won't happen because Muslims do believe that Jesus was a great person) - Votebotingsucks

3 Buddha Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, after the title of Buddha, was an ascetic and sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.

A true saint, and truly peaceful.

Either him, Muhammad or Jesus should be at the #1 spot, not a rapist who is at this time of writing, imprisoned until 2037!

He gave scientific religion to the world.

He is hot make my babies

Bet that his brain cells disappears each hour

4 Moses

He was a great leader but his people are the ones who disobeyed God

5 Abraham Abraham, originally Abram, is the first of the three biblical patriarchs. His story, told in chapters 11 through 25 of the Book of Genesis, plays a prominent role as an example of faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. According to the bible, God called upon him and told him 'through your son, Isaac, ...read more.

Luckys, we all do bad stuff sometimes. Abraham wasn't perfect, he wasn't God. So do you expect him to be perfect and always do good?

Hugely important in Judaism, Christianity and Islam

He almost killed his son to see his faith

He did some bad stuff, but he's a good guy.

6 St. Paul Paul the Apostle, commonly known as Saint Paul, and also known by his native name Saul of Tarsus was an apostle who taught the gospel of the Christ to the 1st-century world.

Greatest figurein christian religion

11 Guru Gobind Singh Guru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

Guru Gobind Singh was a great religious leader of Sikh faith who defended his Sikh faith from the Mogul emperors who invaded India and wanted to rule and covert everyone to Islam. He spent a great number of years meditating in silence in the Himalayas and then cleared his vision about the way forward to defend Sikhs from oppression. He sacrificed all his 4 sons who were murdered by the Moghuls but did not flinch in his mission. He taught Sikhs to pray but also fight if they had to in defence of their faith. He created the Khalsa, the subsequent Image of the Sikhs to this day. He deserves to be revered and placed in the top ten.

The only Guru who devoted everything for his disciples even his family too like his father,his sons too

He is the greatest sacrificing Guru.

He is the master of about 21 arts

12 Joel Osteen
13 Virgin Mary

Mother Of the Eternal Son Of God. Greatest Saint of all time.

She is the Mother of Our Lord & God.

She is the Blessed Mother Of God.

And should not be prayed too as she was purely a normal human being...

I'd rather pray to god through Jesus rather than praying to a human who is a mortal whether they think they are a god or not. - BigFatNoob

14 Pope John Paul II Pope John Paul II served as Pope and sovereign of the Vatican City State from 1978 to 2005. He is called Saint John Paul the Great by some Catholics.

17 Guru Nanak Dev Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus. His birth is celebrated worldwide as Guru Nanak Gurpurab on Kartik Pooranmashi, the full-moon day in the month of Katak, October–November.

The great personality who established a religion for confused and direction less people to show them right path

Taught all religions are the same.
Taught equal rights.
I wish he was alive today.

He taught that all religion are same... We should not measure religion or god in percentage... God is one... Always be one...
