Christian population growth

I know this is very loose thinking but its interesting how the Christian population centre of gravities have moved since 2000 years. First obviously the middle east, then down the Nile valley, across to north Africa, then across to Europe, then crossed the ocean into the Americas and then missionaries carried it to Africa and Asia. Now the Middle East is losing Christians by the ton because of the rise in fundamentalist Islam, its reducing in Europe because of rise in secularism, holding and increasing in USA because of Hispanic immigration, losing its hold somewhat in Latin America, growing rapidly in Africa (which according to some, has more Christians than Muslims) and Asia where in countries like Philippines, South Korea and in some patchy places in countries like India, we are seeing quite a rapid growth.

Interesting dynamics…

Islamist will infect a cultural people to comand by fear, stone women behead. Rule with an iron rod.They know enough of God to fear Him and feel they are to small to even talk to Him. They need a Saviour before they can tell others how to live their lifes and even then you lead with LOVE!
