Since When Have Numbers Mattered?

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Submitted by Servant of Christ (United States), Sep 20, 2006 at 22:08

Wow, after looking at a couple of posts after my last post, I've decided to make another one.

Since when does having the fast growth rate mean anything? I can spread a rumor around and it could run rampant in my town within a day, but how does that make it true?

Just because Christianity's growth rate is behind Islam's, what difference? Yes, that isn't good news for people who believe Jesus is the Way and the Life but how do numbers decide a religion? This is foolish, these are two non-interrelating topics, number of believers and the truth of the religion. Number of believers is completely irrelevent to the truth of a religion.

May God Bless You All
