No you sad lost soul , it only is the fullfilling of the Word of the Lord. As the end times comes upon the earth the Great Falling Away begins. Just as the Lord said. Praise the Lord!!!
Jesus also said that the End of Days was about to occur, and would happen while some of those in his audience listening were still alive. Oops...

But then, Jesus would be spinning in his grave if he knew that people were worshiping him as if he were a god, since the only thing he ever taught was Jewish revivalism.

Yes, purely because of atheism.
Because religion became an obstacle on the way to an atheist state, so the believers were persecuted and killed in great numbers in ALL the atheist states.
First the clerics (priests, rabbis, imams) were killed, because they are judged to have power over their flock, and condemn atheism. And then the believers, ones who follow religions,, because they refused to give up their faith. Then, ther buildings themselves (churches, synagogues, mosques) were desecrated, demolished, because they are symbols of religious faith. Then, the holly books, bibles, Quran and religious libraries were burned, to erase any texts that didn't endorse atheism.
Religion is by nature dissident in an atheist state. Faith will always be the opposite of denial.
Do we want the same fate in future? No. WE should learn from the past.
Atheism is a dangerous doctrine, and when atheists seize power, they seek to eliminate by force ALL the religions.
The only thing needed to destroy xianity or islam is education. Force is not necessary.

I mean why dont you just live and let live and allow people have their faith and leave them alone?
You keep you opinion to y our self.I dont try ram my beliefs down your throat so dont disrespect mine.
Is what i am saying.
Do you have friends of religious faith or parents or family members?
Do you disrespect them in same way?
Religion does not cause problems humans do.
It will always be there and if it isnt because they are using faith.They will use the colour of your garden fence.lol
My faith is very very strong so nothing essentially bothers me barr the fact you are being disrespectful and think you have right to moan and complain about religion.
Religion is not a superstition,it is a feeling in the heart and soul.For m e personally i lost faith for a while and didnt bother with thinking about it.
Then a good few things happened in my life and i found faith again,not from anyone preaching at me or from anyone convincing me.
But through things no one can even imagine.And i knew then it was real.
So my faith is and never will be doubted by me again.
Stop pointing finger at the faith but at the people who choose to use the faith as their weapon.
God bless you.
When the religious try to supress education in science because it contradicts the creation myths from our supersticious past, it harms us all. America is seriously behind the rest of the world because of xian fundies who see the theory of evolution as a threat. Since xianity is demonstrably false, everyone INCLUDING the xians would be better off without it.

Catholicism and the main religions of world have been around longer than any other religion.So no it doesn't die out.
Why is that Rio because somewhere deep inside the human knows and feels something in the soul?
No, shamanism has been around for a LOT longer that any form of xianity or Judaism.
