Numbers do matter

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Response to Akbar's "Numbers Do Matter"

When you state that Muslims spread religion by the sword you did not give a logical example. When someone is spreading religion by the sword means that they make you accept their religion and leave your religion. In some predominant Muslim countries there is a belief that if you leave Islam you should be executed. The holy Quran refutes this by stating that there should be no compulsion in religion.

Since you are a Christian, your history should tell you that there will always be people to intrepret the word of God for their own purposes. Christianity has a history in blood. Christianity is being spread by the sword in both Iraq and Afganistan. The U.S. military has destroyed both countries and then allowed Christian missionaries to go in and provide services to the people.

You keep bringing up the Pope. history shows that the Poe gave Hitler his blessings for the holocaust. History shows that the Pope gave Europe his blessings to destroy Africa. History shows that the Pope gave whites his blessing for taking Africans out of humanity in name of the slave trade. If people are worshipping God correctly, then numbers do matter. Religion is not for God, it is for man. God does not need our worship. We are born with the need to worship something, so if we are not worshipping God, then we are worshipping something that is enslaving us. The proper worship of God emancipates us from all forms of false worship. It is true that it does not take many to change the world, but it does take a few with the proper worship to lead the way for the many to emancipate themselves from false worship.
