Why is Christianity Growing?
There are a variety of reasons. It has been growing for over 2000 years. Starting in Jerusalem with 12 followers of Christ Jesus it has grown to over 2 billion followers today.
Here are 4 of many reasons:
Hope: Christianity brings hope to every person in the world. Without hope people die. The best selling book in the world, the Bible says, in the book of Romans chapter 15 and verse 13, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope”.
Love: Christian love is the wellspring of the fullness of human life. It is the glue that holds marriages and families together. It the motivation that brings a giving attitude to help others in need, to go the second mile and to sacrifice when called upon. The Bible says in the book of 1 John 4:7, “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God”.
Forgiveness: There isn’t a person in the world that does not need forgiveness for something or other. The biggest reason for the need of forgiveness is the sin against God. To be forgiven is a great lifting of heaviness, a removal of guilt and sometimes a release from social pressures. Here is what God says in the Bible about the sin in the book of first John chapter 1 and verse 9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”.
Eternal Life: There is no bigger question in the world than, “what happens after death”. Every person who ever lived has pondered that question. All religions in the world have their opinion to this question. Christianity’s answer to this question has been the same for 4 thousand years based on historical documents, archaeological findings, inspirational writings and millions of personal testimonials. These all point to and confirm the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
