If you mean Christianity is a A religion, but THE religion than I agree

Not sure what the original poster meant, but I tend to view religion as a manmade institution, while my Christianity is centered on my beliefs and my personal decision to follow Christ.

Well, to be absolutely technical Jesus [the Christ] was a man. According to John ch 1, Jesus is/was "the Word made flesh" and that by this very Word was all of creation made. All of the early Christian fathers acknowledge Jesus as instituting the Church; therefore, because Jesus was/is a man the Church is instituted by [a] man... and by God.
