All that was answered was the faulty dilemma you bought into the discussion you're now clarifying means nothing after being argued with on the validity of it's data.

No because my first response was basically that we (Christian theists) should keep using the same arguments until they are successfully refuted. It isn't our fault that you guys can't refute the things.

They've all been refuted; you just don't understand how.

Make sure you're getting the word out to your fellow theists who argue ad populum, eh, there's a good lad.

But Christianity is still the world's largest religion based on the number of followers, just sayin'.

Wouldn't that mean that Christianity is the the very one-world antichrist religion that the Conspiracy Nuts for Christ are always warning themselves about?

Not historically. There have been other world religions with far more members.
The only reason Christianity got where it did, (just like Islam and Judaism), is because political leaders figured out religion was a useful tool.
There really is no such thing as "Christianity". 33,000 sects. They all think THEY alone have the truth. I wonder how the other world religions break out, for the numbers of sects per total number of members.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Nonsense. Christianity had spread throughout the Roman Empire before Constantine, and it was spreading despite the fact that it was the political leaders that were actually the ones persecuting the Christians.

Jesus said that he is the Way, the Truth, and the Light...and no one can come to the Father except through him alone (John 14:6).

There is only one Truth.

Yeah, the crazy people that are going nuts for Christ are claiming that Christianity (a religion based on Jesus Christ), is the one-world anti-CHRIST religion. Laugh out loadLaugh out loadLaugh out load

You seem completely unable to think more than one layer deep.

It will soon not be number 1.

Yeah, but I thought none of those people were real Christians. Only people from so-and-so's church are true Christians.

False. provide references, or STFU. It was ILLEGAL, until Constantine decided to USE it to unify his empire. And the persecutions are a LIE. See Dr. Candida Moss' book about persecutions. She a Christian head of the Theology Department at Notre Dame. They basically made up the deal about persecutions.

Not because you say so with a Babble quote.
Apparently there are at least 33,000 versions of it. Jebus never said "alone", and in fact your statement proves your ignorance. Many of the mainline sects in Christianity (the RC's, the Episcopalians) teach that ALL people of good will are saved, not just Christians. Interesting you know nothing of your own cult. And BTW, Jesus never said that. That saying originated in Egypt, LONG before it was used in the NT. If it's *him alone* then your god is giant dick for creating people who could not possibly hear about your precious Jebus.:
In fact, the largest percentage in the majority YOU claim, are Catholics. it is the official position of the RCC that :

"The Constitution of the Church" (Vatican II) :


"The Catholic Church professes that it is the one, holy catholic and apostolic Church of Christ; this it does not and could not deny. But in its Constitution the Church now solemnly acknowledges that the Holy Ghost is truly active in the churches and communities separated from itself. To these other Christian Churches the Catholic Church is bound in many ways: through reverence for God's word in the Scriptures; through the fact of baptism; through other sacraments which they recognize."

The non-Christian may not be blamed for his ignorance of Christ and his Church; salvation is open to him also, if he seeks God sincerely and if he follows the commands of his conscience, for through this means the Holy Ghost acts upon all men; this divine action is not confined within the limited boundaries of the visible Church."

So a majority of this majority (you *claim*) actually in no way agrees with your ignorant statement. You are dead wrong, and clearly never studied anything about your cult. YOU claimed a "majority" position of your cults, yet in fact there is no such thing as "Christianity". Most of the them, just like you, claim THEY possess the *truth*. You people can't ALL be right. of course YOU think YOU are. Hahaha. Weeping
