In truth,Christianity for a faith that is 2006 years old was from its begining, ahead of its time. Its teachings stressed the importance of love and care for those in need, standing up to injustice, respect and esteem to women. Also it coming to faith in Christ is a free will decision.

The Western world has its basis in its Jewish/Christian heritage, in respect to democratic governing, rule of law, ecconomics, and culture. Today, the Christian faith is spreading more in Asia, Latin, America, and Africa which has the fastest growth in new members in the third world. This is a much needed booster shot for the Christian faith. Why such growth? Because of Jesus and His message.
