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<quoted text>
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.
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%
