Fake news comes in many forms and styles. We hear the liberal media spout fake news daily, often to bash President Trump. We hear Trump using some degree of hyperbole in explaining his many accomplishments.
We even hear Christian missionaries, evangelists, and church leaders explain the success in bringing people to Christ.
I occasionally pose a question to Christian leaders while raising concerns about the growth and dangers of Islam and the fact that the Church fails to discuss or address the Islamic threat:
“Do you know how fast Christianity is increasing compared to Islam?”
Their response has ALWAYS been something to the effect of:
“No worries, we have missionaries in [such and such place] and they’re bringing people to Christ by the boatload.”
That response does not answer my question, number one. Number two, that response masks the ignorance of that Christian leader with regard to the growth of Islam compared to the growth of Christianity around the world. But I haven’t challenged that response – until now.
So, in the spirit of that challenge, I present the following two minute animation that shows the growth of major world religions from 1946 t0 2019. Enjoy…or not:
If the information presented in this video is accurate, and I have reasons to believe it is, the Churches need a lot of waking up to do regarding accepting the truths about Islam, their growth, their means of growth, and the threat they pose to our national and religious freedoms.
The questions I asked myself when I received this video from a friend were “what is the source of this data? Who put it together? What was their motivation? Can it be trusted?
Here are a few answers to those questions:
The person who put this video together has a YouTube presence on a site called Data Is Beautiful. This is a link to that sites’ “About” page.
The source of the data is World Religion Data Base. This is a link to their site:
I cannot vouch for the voracity of either of these sources – and I’d prefer they were not accurate.
