What part of Christianity is true? Be specific.

I was thinking it's because it has the pushiest sales people.

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Then why do only 32% of the world's population buy into this particular religion?

Because God is very bad at advancing his mission statement. Demonstrably bad.

Sure, apologists love to tout how Christianity is the largest religion (true, if you lump all of the sects together), but they leave out the fact that for every one Christian, there are two non-Christians. The majority of the world is non-Christian.

Oops, YHWH. Try harder.

Largely because of the undue heavy influence of Emperor Constantine and Bishop Augustine, amongst others, who force fed it to everyone, and banned under capital punishment to hold other beliefs....

Well...

The kingdoms of Judah and Israel were real, so was Babylon, and Egypt, they were places... And the Roman Empire existed and they did once control Israel...

That's all I can think of.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

That and you have a lot of people still on the books that are no longer religious, like me. I am still technically a catholic since I have not requested excommunication. Actually I am still a member of a church parish since my wife signed us up as a family.

Sounds boring.

Nope, plenty of theist posters come and stay here that and aren't trolls.

Dildo isn't a theist though, or convincingly one, becasue you can see his post history, in a single thread about the debate of presupestionalist Sye vs Matt Dilahaunty alter as he starts trolling about how nobody can deny presuptionionalist stances.
