-Tell the people there is an invisible person who created the universe,the world and all the living things and they will believe you.

-Tell the people you saw God and he gave you a task half of the people believe you.

-Tell the people you believe more on facts, on what you see that's reality none catholic will believe you and will doubt you for what you are.

A priest will tell you about mysteries he encounter like ghost, jesus and mother mary in his dream and a few miracle for some donations -people won't hesitate

A person who has evidence that his child is dying and needs donation to survive, people still tell you to get a job/earn yourself.

-People doesn't need to learn the 10 commandments, a well raised Child will know what he/she must not do in life.

This might be seen to imply that Christianity is increasing instead of declining? Perhaps (statistically) it is in places like China? http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belie... Personally, I find the statistical evidence that religion is steadily declining in developed countries more interesting. It appears to be declining naturally in the face of education and science. http://www.secularism.org.uk/news/2012/01/gov... Some support for Christianity sometimes seems to be based on social or other pressures, rather than silly superstitious beliefs like 'Christ is our savior' or 'Mohammed is the messenger of Allah'. I don't think most people are crazy. From a comment on this article... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17190113 "My brother and his wife are basically pretending to be Christians and attending church every week without fail, all so that they can improve their chances of getting their daughter into what they consider the best school in the area, which happens to be a church school in a suburb of Bristol. Their friends are also doing the same thing for their own kids. What I find fascinating is the possibility that religious groups running church schools take advantage of parents' anxieties in order to gain the hearts and minds of the next generation." Religion = superstition

.....any eeejit knows dat when one uses the word 'basically', it should be followed by no more than 'six' words.

AnyVon who uses da word 'basically' twice in a conversation just don't know vot they are talking about.

This year, our church had a 14% increase in membership. We are having to add on to the building for the 4th time in a decade. I've had over 2 dozen folks join just by showing them this forum, illustrating how atheism is such an awful cult and that Christianity should be the remedy to rid our world of the hatred of atheists.

In 2010, there were 2.30 billion Christians in the world, an increase of 300 million from two billion in 2005. The increase in the Christian population was at a slightly higher rate than that of the world population, 1.3 percent per year, when the total world population increased by 1.2 percent per year.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_popu...
D'oH!
Yes but you are comparing apples and oranges. 2.3 is not the same as 7, the FACTS and FIGURES tell us that 1.3 % of 2.3 billion is considerably less than 1.2% of 7 billion, actually about 1/3

I.E. Less than is needed to maintain parity

Or you having a brain malfunction?

Let me make it easier for you

Would you prefer 1.2% of a whole cake or 1.3% of 1/3 of the cake
I,e 1.2% or 0.43%

Or put it another way you have a choice
1.2% of 7 billion dollars
1.3% of 2.3 billion dollars

Which would you choose?

And of course the trends in growth tell their own story

Christianity 1970 - 1985 - 1.64%
Christianity 1990 2000 - 1.36%
Christinaity 2000 2005 1,32%
And by you own admission yesterday more recent figures give the rise of christianity at 1.3%

Who attacked you "in the name of God"?
If you care to follow the posts to which you butted in with no idea of what was happening you would have seen that bob gobbler, that apologist for paedophiles does it in juts about every single post he makes.

He has verbally attacked me personally
He has verbally attacked my husband
He has verbally attacked my sex life
He has verbally attacked my motherhood
And lowest of the low he has lowered himself into the gutter by verbally attacking my children

He, as you, comes on topix to promote his god ideas. The difference is his ideas of christianity are always as sick and perverted and hateful as yours on a particularly bad day.

So in future before jumping in try checking out what is actually happening, it save some fool sticking their foot in you mouth

No, Catholics are not the original Christians.

The original christians were either killed off or forced underground, and had their writings burned. They called themselves Nazirenes or Ebionites.
