Christianity is right because it is the largest religion in the world...

What do you think of this statement?

  • And to clarify, it's not just wrong in a philosophical sense, it's also wrong in a statistical sense. It is not the largest religion on earth (even if it were "correct")

  • OP, that probably wasn't the best answer to give you.

    He/she should have said "Study and pray about it". Because ultimately you have to take it up with God and seek your answers from Him.

  • McDonald's is pretty popular around the world. Does that make it the "best"?

  • I don't think numbers matter. WHo is to say which is the "best" religion or which is "right" ???

  • The Christian population is steadily dropping, and the Islamic is growing.  The largest depends on which study you're reading at any given time, and the margin of error is 10% and upward.  The truth is Christian and Islam are about tied, but only if you consider people who are non-practicing/agnostic, but still claim to be raised Christian.  That's ignoring for the moment that Christianity is so splintered right now, the various denominations can't even degree on what the definition of "Christian" is.  More to the point, the number of non-Christians on the planet outnumber Christians by more than 2 to 1.

  • What it does say about Christianity is that it is "successful" if success is defined in terms of numbers. Fundamental precepts of Christianity such as hell and the devil and "Christ is the only way into Heaven" sort of mentality mean that there are a lot of nominally Christian folk and committed Christians who are afraid to look into other belief systems. Fear is a powerful thing when you tie it up with the Forever After.
