Look what Allah told Rasoolullah :saws: to say " ..If you love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."
" Say: "Obey Allah and the Messenger". But if they turn away, Allah loves not the disbelievers (in His guidance)."
Surah Aal Imraan (3:31-32)
"And whoever seeks religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers" (3:85).
So your creator whom you love is telling you exactly which path you need to follow and what you need to do to attain success... Islam as your religion, and obey Allah and obey the messenger :saws:.

*"Ali bin Abi Talhah narrated from Ibn `Abbas, about
(Verily, those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day) that Allah revealed the following Ayah afterwards,
﴿وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإِسْلَـمِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِى الاٌّخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَـسِرِينَ ﴾
(And whoever seeks religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers) (3:85).
This statement by Ibn `Abbas indicates that Allah does not accept any deed or work from anyone, unless it conforms to the Law of Muhammad :saws:that is, after Allah sent Muhammad:saws: . Before that, every person who followed the guidance of his own Prophet was on the correct path, following the correct guidance and was saved.
When Allah sent Muhammad :saws: as the Last and Final Prophet and Messenger to all of the Children of Adam, mankind was required to believe in him, obey him and refrain from what he prohibited them; those who do this are true believers. The Ummah of Muhammad :saws: was called `Mu'minin' (believers), because of the depth of their faith and certainty, and because they believe in all of the previous Prophets and matters of the Unseen."*
Area between the two asterisks from Tafseer ibn Katheer.
i.e those ayaat refer to the righteous folk of old, those that followed the teachings of Musa alayhissalaam in his time and those that followed the teachings of Isa alayhissalam in his time. Those will go to heaven. After the advent of Prophet Muhammad :saws:, who was sent as the Messenger to the whole of mankind, He is the Prophet to be followed by everyone. There is no other correct way.
Other faiths out there will promise you that someone died for your sins, and peace, love and joy etc, but have you seen what Allah says about the monstrous lie of the trinity? Stay on the straight path. Do not let shaytaan tempt you to deviate off it. Do not give in to him. It is his desire to get you off the straight path, anyhow, any time.
Sister, please read more on Islam. Allah is not wrong and Islam is not at fault. It seems perhaps you need to develop a deeper understanding of the faith.
Worry about yourself first, get yourself on the right path first. once you've done that, then you can demonstrate your concern for Christians and put it into practice by inviting them to Islam and telling them about it.
Please ask further questions, but in your questions ask what you'd like to know and don't taint Islam with, "xyz is unfair in Islam, why is this?", when it's not Islam that's at fault, but your limited understanding. It may be the case that you "inherited" Islam from your parents without having a proper understanding. That being the case, now is the time to start learning. Don't turn away from Allah just because you don't understand something. We humans are not meant to know the wisdom behind everything. If we did there would be no test and no point to life on this earth. Everything would be meaningless.
Start afresh, make a new connection with Allah, ask Him for guidance, start reading the Qur'an (which is Allah's word to you and all mankind), and Islamic books, and ask questions here. We don't know the answers to everything and are happy to accept that some things Allah in His Divine Wisdom knows best, but we are all here for you in your quest for guidance, if you truly and sincerely have a desire for that.
