Scientology- smallest religion by size-photoshop doodle

Scientology is a body of beliefs and related practices created by L. Ron Hubbard (1911–1986), starting in 1952, as a successor to his earlier self-help system, Dianetics.[4] Hubbard characterized Scientology as a religion, and in 1953 incorporated the Church of Scientology in Camden, New Jersey.[5][6]
Scientology teaches that people are immortal beings who have forgotten their true nature.[7] Its method of spiritual rehabilitation is a type of counselling known as auditing, in which practitioners aim to consciously re-experience painful or traumatic events in their past in order to free themselves of their limiting effects.[8] Study materials and auditing courses are made available to members in return for specified donations.[9] Scientology is legally recognized as a tax-exempt religion in the United States and some other countries,[10][11][12][13] and the Church of Scientology emphasizes this as proof that it is a bona fide religion.[14] In other countries, notably France, Germany and the United Kingdom, Scientology does not have comparable religious status.

I'm done with this study. Moving on to another challenge. ( tbd)

So... is Scientology 'christian' (i.e. followers of Christ) or do they acknowledge a God at all? Everyone I'd ever known who knew Scientologists were reluctant to talk about it... (probably for an acceptable sized check they would, though...)
