32 Why is Christianity so popular

Believer asks: How do you explain the popularity of Christianity? 

Skeptic answersWell, I say that since people want to go to heaven, they turn to Christianity (or to a different religion) and its promise of heaven. Ironically, popularity of any Christian church doesn't guarantee that it was the original Christian church. But it's popular because it's so-called cafeteria Christianity, a version or other of Christianity. 

Islam and Mormonism are popular, too, but certainly not because they're both right. Rather, because they, too, teach the doctrine that their adherents will go to heaven. 

Recap: Why is Christianity so popular? Because folks wish to go to heaven and believe that Christianity will get them there. But I say there's no assurance the doctrine is "spiritually" true.


  1. that did not help me at ALL!!

  2. Short version: The Roman Empire declares Christianity the "official" religion. The empire along with the religion expand throughout Europe and N. Africa. After over 1,000 years of it being against the law to be a non-Christian, Europeans began to "explore" west Africa, the Caribbean and the Americas. The natives of the new lands either converted or were murdered. The Christian Church only stopped murdering people for not being Christians about 300 years ago. (see Dark Ages)

  3. I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post.
    They're very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies.

    May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time?
