Chaos is necessary...

We are witnessing chaos, hate and confusion in the United States and all over the world right now. President Trump has implemented many changes in his first few years that has brought about fear in many people and has made a major division that’s very apparent in our country.
 
But, what if all is going on is a good thing? What if it’s the beginning of a whole new way of living? A rebirth of a new Era?
 
So many say to me how can you support a guy that doesn’t give a shit about anybody, a guy that is dividing our country like never before. I hear people from other countries dissing him and his America first approach. But, these people are still seeing it from the 3-D human perspective.
 
What I mean is the human race is so programmed in living in duality that they don’t realize they have a third perspective. It’s either I don’t like him or you do you like him. What about looking at what Trump is doing with a neutral perspective?
 
We need to look at what he’s doing with an energetic perspective, a higher perspective, a Universal perspective. What we are experiencing now is an exact blueprint of a Spiritual Awakening of a nation. The United States is the first nation to go through this as a western society and will lead this process covering the whole planet.
 
We need to remember chaos is good because chaos is necessary to change a system. So, in order to get to chaos you first have to build fear on our 3rd dimensional level. Fear is not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just an energetic vibration that we experience with our 3rd dimensional bodies. It only gets dangerous when our ego interprets it as something bad and dark.
 
Really, what fear does is it accelerates action to immediately initiate change. What the fight or flight response was meant for is to build up energy quickly for survival to get a crystal clear outlook on what to do in a life and death situation. This is why some animals play dead to save themselves, really what they’re doing is changing the situation. So the energetic vibration of fear is a great catalyst to bring about change.
 
So instead of looking at this change that Trump is stirring up as fearful, we need to look at it as everything is being calibrated to a higher level. Meaning, fear is necessary for this change and remember fear is the lowest frequency so it’s only up from here on.
 
A rigid system cannot sustain itself forever. This rigid system of oppression, control and authority was always going to break down and we are in the cusp of that break down as we speak.
 
Many of us are realizing that fear and chaos is a catalyst to rise to a higher vibration. So, if we react to this change with fear we’re going to go thru the same spirals again and again and we’re going to have to go through the same lessons over and over. It’s wake up time!
 
We are now in what some call the “Change Curve” and everyone will go through this curve. Some will flow and some will resist it just depends on their ability to embrace uncertainty. Like the saying goes...”intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”
 
When people are faced with change on such a massive scale such as what’s happening in the United States they go through stages and a big one is...
Denial - How can Trump be our President, how did this happen, omg our world is gonna end.
Anger - Realizing what happened is real and it cannot be denied any longer and oh boy are we seeing anger. They’re lashing out because they are being pushed out of their comfort zone.
Bargaining - Coming to the realization that they are going to have to bargain and come to a compromise
Depression - Sometimes called the “valley of despair.” Some people pull back not wanting to talk to anyone.
Acceptance - This phase happens when there is an undeniable realization of the facts and truth and an inevitable path towards the future. Coming to the acceptance of “I can’t fight it so I might as well prepare for it.”
I don’t think we are at this point yet in America. 🥴
 

So really what I just explained here is the path of a Spiritual Awakening... Denial, the shock of finding out the horror, ugliness and truth about the world we live in. We experience Anger because it just pisses us off what has been done to our species and the planet as a whole. We start then Bargaining with ourselves trying to make sense of what we are learning. Some go through a Depression “The Dark Night of the Soul.” We eventually get to Acceptance excepting what has been done to us and our world and we start wanting change. This is what’s happening in the United States and what’s happening in the United States will create a ripple effect throughout all creation.
 
 
---------
 
 
Our planet is in extreme danger like no other time in our species history. We are seeing the clash of two Ages. Pisces (control and oppression) to Aquarius (enlightenment and liberation) it’s literally a conflict between the Light and the Dark. It's all vibrational.
 
All of you still stuck in any belief system, social and religious dogma need to wake up. The deception the church preaches has all been designed by the Archons. They are who you indirectly pray to in your Temples of Deception. Religion is all mind control. Period!
 
We are souls having a brief physical human experience in a low density Matrix created by the Dark, rebelling against Prime Creator. Catholicism is rooted in the Dark occult rituals.
The cross mocks a false satanic sacrifice of Jesus (Light) The Eucharist symbolizes cannibalism. The Eucharist... is the Christian ceremony commemorating the Last Supper, in which bread and wine are consecrated and consumed. Bread being the flesh and wine being the blood of man. Gehenna (referred to as Hell) was a place of child sacrifice in Jerusalem, a destination of the wicked, a place of fiery torment.
 
We are in the time of the Apocalypse meaning the unveiling. Again, nothing is what we’ve been told, be prepared to be either completely amazed or shocked beyond comprehension because it’s coming. Jesus referred to this time as...”If you live by the sword, you will die by the sword and the meek shall inherit the Earth.” It’s time to clean house and that’s what’s happening.
 
There is a Universal Ascension process taking place and it’s up to you as an individual to ascend. You evolve from within at your soul level, your physical body is just a vessel to experience this reality. No one gets a free pass because you cannot lie to yourself.
 
----------
 
Original Sin is a mind game the religions of the world play on our psyche. Making you feel less than and in need of guidance from an outside source. It’s all a brilliantly designed strategy to control the masses. All organized religions are forms of madness...

Ascension recap...

by Teri Wade.

facebook.com/teri.wade.1610.

Posted November 4th, 2019.

 
 
.
 

 
 
 
In this Universe everything is energy and that is a fact. It means we are living in a timeless and space-less energy that manifests itself as you, me, trees, birds, every soul, the stars, the planet and all that exists in the Multiverse. Everything is one and EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED!
 
Everything is interdependent because nothing can exist in an isolated state without a purpose, a reason to be there. We need food to grow, but the food needs us for it to be grown etc. Living in this third dimensional existence is tough. If our planet was too close to the sun it would be too hot, if our planet was too far from the sun it would be too cold either way life could not sustain itself. But, we can say that everything is as it should be and everyone is placed where they are meant to be, where they choose to be. Everything is in divine order even if it appears incredibly chaotic.
 
Out of chaos exists a level of order to give birth to necessary events. Think about the death of a star into a Supernova. A gigantic explosion of pieces of gas, molecules and matter thrown into the cosmos with no apparent order. Meaning, a new generation of stars can be created by the same bricks, shall we say, composed by the original star and those same bricks are the bricks that make up the atoms of our bodies. So, was that explosion chaos or was it divine order? On one level it was chaos but on the highest level it was order.
 
Everything is designed under mathematical rules, everything is perfect in its individual expression. We give labels and names because we experience life through a 3-D reality. We separate the individual from the oneness, the interconnectedness we all are.
 
This happens because when we incarnate on a 3-D planet such as Earth meaning its denseness and duality we have to lower our frequency so much in order to exist in such a physical environment. We are multi-dimensional beings whether we are aware of it or not!
 
We exist on many dimensions at the same time and we operate in each one of them under specific rules. Our “higher self” which is pure energy would disintegrate our human vessel because our human vessel could not sustain that extremely high frequency. So, what I’m getting at here is the Ascension process our physical bodies are going through are feeling these physical symptoms brought on by these higher Ascension energies.
 
We are raising our frequency higher and higher and as a consequence we are making the impossible possible because now with this Ascension process our physical bodies are being able to sustain these higher frequencies which are bringing in incredible abilities, awareness and insight. We can now operate in a wider spectrum of reality.
 
As you raise your vibration you can access new portions of reality. This is why the third eye is so emphasized throughout our world and the spiritual community. Two eyes = symbol of duality, right and left brain hemispheres, male and female, the third eye is unification, perception beyond duality, higher awareness and divine wisdom.
 
Our DNA is morphing being brought on by these higher energies we are receiving from our Central Sun. A fully functioning human being as originally designed and created had 12 fully functioning strands of DNA. We were once a being that was one with Light, God in our ancient times.
 
Through DNA manipulation we were made into an unconscious race easy to control by a very sinister and service to self Dark agenda. This being called “God” by organized religions is divine pure Light and of the highest frequency which is love. The human race is an emotional race and as this Ascension process ramps up we as a species cannot be controlled any longer. God or Light is not only all that exists but it also is everything that doesn’t exist.
 
Religion preaches separation meaning you’re separate from this “Light” and that’s all an illusion. This is how they control the human species. They have you looking outward when it’s always been inside. Once you receive this higher light the unconscious becomes conscious, the asleep becomes awake.
 
Remember, darkness is just the absence of light. Once these energies start flowing and our awareness starts to heighten darkness remembers itself as Light hence, our Awakening. We will all eventually become one with the Light.
 
Completion of Evolution! 🙌🏼

Religion in U.S. ‘worth more than Google and Apple combined’ ~ Harriet Sherwood.

(Organised) Religion in US ‘worth more than Google and Apple combined’.

By Harriet Sherwood.

Posted June 24, 2019 by Edward Morgan. 

Faith is worth $1.2 trilions a year – more than combined revenues of 10 biggest tech firms in America

.
The largely tax-free religion industry is one of the biggest in America, worth $1.2 trillion/year, a number that includes religious “healthcare facilities, schools, daycare and charities; media; businesses with faith backgrounds; the kosher and halal food markets; social and philanthropic programmes; and staff and overheads for congregations.” (Photo: Lakewood interior, ToBeDaniel, CC-BY)
 

 

Religion in the United States is worth $1.2tn a year, making it equivalent to the 15th largest national economy in the world, according to a study.
The faith economy has a higher value than the combined revenues of the top 10 technology companies in the US, including Apple, Amazon and Google, says the analysis from Georgetown University in Washington DC.
The Socioeconomic Contributions of Religion to American Society: An Empirical Analysis calculated the $1.2tn figure by estimating the value of religious institutions, including healthcare facilities, schools, daycare and charities; media; businesses with faith backgrounds; the kosher and halal food markets; social and philanthropic programmes; and staff and overheads for congregations.
Co-author Brian Grim said it was a conservative estimate. More than 344,000 congregations across the US collectively employ hundreds of thousands of staff and buy billions of dollars worth of goods and services.
More than 150 million Americans, almost half the population, are members of faith congregations, according to the report. Although numbers are declining, the sums spent by religious organisations on social programmes have tripled in the past 15 years, to $9bn.
Twenty of the top 50 charities in the US are faith-based, with a combined operating revenue of $45.3bn.
The report points to analysis by the Pew Research Centre which shows that two-thirds of highly religious adults had donated money, time or goods to the poor in the previous week, compared with 41% of adults who said they were not highly religious.
Grim and his co-author Melissa Grim of the Newseum Institute in Washington came up with three estimates of the worth of US religion. The lowest, at $378bn, took into account only the revenues of faith-based organisations. The middle estimate, $1.2tn, included an estimate of the market value of goods and services provided by religious organisations and the contributions of businesses with religious roots.
The top estimate was based on the household incomes of religiously affiliated Americans, and placed the value of faith to US society at $4.8tn annually.
The analysis did not take account of the value of financial or physical assets held by religious groups. Neither did it account for “the negative impacts that occur in some religious communities, including … such things as the abuse of children by some clergy, cases of fraud, and the possibility of being recruitment sites for violent extremism”.
However, it concluded, “the faith sector is undoubtedly a significant component of the overall American economy, impacting and involving the lives of the majority of the US population”.

4 Ways Social Conditioning Secretly Affects Your Behaviors and Decisions ~ Janey Davies.

4 Ways Social Conditioning Secretly Affects Your Behaviors and Decisions.

By Janey Davies.

May 15th, 2019.

 
 
 
 
 

 



 

We all like to think we have free will and make our own decisions in life, but in actual fact, we are programmed at an early age by social conditioning.
Social conditioning is a set of rules and behavior dictated to us by society. It’s very easy to see how we as individuals can be conditioned in this way.
No one wants to stand out when they are younger. We all want to fit in. If you are different, you are bullied, ridiculed and ostracised from popular groups.
We soon learn to fall in line with whatever everyone is doing, saying, wearing, wanting, even believing. So how does it start and who conditions us?
“The things you read will fashion you by slowly conditioning your mind.” A.W. Tozer
The thing is, this kind of conditioning begins as soon as we are born. Parents immediately reinforce gender differences. Parents tell girls to behave in a quiet and polite manner and boys must not cry.
Teachers take on the baton and steer boys towards scientific subjects such as maths and physics. On the other hand, girls are pushed to creative topics. Our newly qualified graduates head out into the workplace.
Adverts bombard them with messages on what to wear, what to look like and who they should like. This constant drip-feeding of nudging and reinforcing the right responses actually affects our behavior without us really knowing.

Examples of conditioning by society:

  • Models have to be thin in the fashion industry.
  • Pink for a girl, blue for a boy.
  • Nurses are female.
  • Money buys you happiness.
  • We have to get our protein from meat.

So how does social conditioning affect our behavior?

Language

Language instantly jolts our unconscious mind. For instance, what do you immediately think of when you read the word immigrants?
For some people, their initial thoughts might center on closing the borders, the country is full up, a lack of resources, or there’s too many of them for us to cope with.
For others, the word immigrants may suggest qualified doctors and nurses, ex-pats living abroad, EU nationals, foreign students, or NHS workers.
Depending on the type of media you watch or read will color your view of immigrants. For example, typically, right-wing media depicts most immigrants in a negative light.

People

The homeless; responsible for their own fate or in need of help from society? Some people have very strong ideas about how you can end up living on the streets. They think that it would never happen to them and, therefore, it must be the fault of the homeless person.
How did they come up with that belief? Were their parents particularly critical of homeless people? Statistically, we are all three pay cheques away from losing our homes and ending up with nowhere to live. It could happen to many of us, so why do some believe it is purely down to the individual and not the situation?
Society has been telling us for decades that hard work and effort are all we need to succeed in life. So it’s easy for us to blame the person rather than the longstanding message that everyone else believes and follows.

Religion

You cannot mention conditioning of any kind, social or otherwise, without talking about religion. I’m guessing that whatever religion you belong to or believe in as an adult, you learned about it when you were a child.
When we are children, we believe what our parents and teachers tell us. Because we are so young when this information is first absorbed, it is extremely difficult to dismiss it as incorrect when we are older.
You see similar examples with the retelling of major war battles in history lessons. Countries will favor their side of the story when it comes to educating children on the exploits of battle outcomes and actions of generals, even prime ministers.
Whole nations are outraged decades later when their respected war heroes are then revealed to be less than perfect.

Social Media

Does the life you present on social media have any resemblance to the life you actually lead? The selfies you have carefully crafted, spending hours choosing just the right one that shows you at your best.
Or deliberating over a post that isn’t too self-righteous but shows how devastated you are over the latest world tragedy (after all, it does affect you personally).
We are conditioned now to look our best, say the right things and at least appear to be loving life like never before. However, in reality, more and more men are committing suicide, teenagers are being bullied to death and children as young as 6 are worried they are too fat.
Social media is a portal into our lives, but we are faking this insight because the life we are leading doesn’t live up to social expectations.

So what can you do to break free from conditioning?

  • Don’t be afraid to question or confront people about their behavior.
  • If you see something you don’t agree with – say so.
  • Don’t surround yourself with like-minded people. You’ll only reinforce your own views.
  • Watch media from different sources. If you only ever read one newspaper, switch to another.
  • Do your own thing! Live by your own rules. So what if you don’t earn a lot of money? Do what makes you happy!
  • Finally, recognize when your behaviors or beliefs are a result of social conditioning and work to change them.
As the Indian teacher of meditation S. N. Goenka advises:
“Removing old conditionings from the mind and training the mind to be more equaimous with every experience is the first step toward enabling one to experience true happiness.”

25 Profound Little Prince Quotes Every Deep Thinker Will Appreciate ~ Kirstie Pursey.

25 Profound Little Prince Quotes Every Deep Thinker Will Appreciate.

By Kirstie Pursey

May 7th, 2019. 

 
The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is a children’s story with some very profound meanings and some quotes that will really make you think.
 

I have to admit that I never read the Little Prince as a child.

I think I wouldn’t have known what to make of it if I did. Even reading it as an adult I didn’t know what to make of it!
However, it is clear that The Little Prince touches on some very deep themes about the nature of life, love, friendship and more. The following Little Prince quotes show just how many philosophical themes are discussed in this small, but profound work.
The story tells of a pilot who crashes into the Sahara desert. He is attempting to fix his damaged plane when a little boy appears as if from nowhere and demands that he draws him a sheep. Thus begins a strange, enigmatic friendship that is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.
The Little Prince, it turns out, comes from a small asteroid where he is the only living being apart from a rather demanding rose bush. The Little Prince decides to leave his home and visit other planets to find knowledge.
The story tells of these encounters with rulers of strange worlds and de Saint-Exupéry has opportunities to demonstrate some philosophical themes that will make readers think.
On earth, as well as meeting the pilot, The Little price meets a Fox and  Snake. The fox helps him to truly understand the rose and the snake offers him a way to return to his home planet.
But his return journey comes at a high price. The book’s bittersweet ending is both thought-provoking and emotional. I would definitely recommend that you read The Little Prince if you haven’t already.
It is one of the most beautiful and profound children’s books there are. If you have older children, then you might like to read it with them as it can be a little overwhelming for them to read alone.

In the meantime, here are some of the best and most thought-provoking Little Prince quotes:

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”
“All grown-ups were once children… but only a few of them remember it.”
“Well, I must endure the presence of a few caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies.”
“Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.”
“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”
“It is much more difficult to judge oneself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself rightly, then you are indeed a man of true wisdom.”
“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
“I am who I am and I have the need to be.”
“No one is ever satisfied where he is.”
“One day, I watched the sun setting forty-four times……You know…when one is so terribly sad, one loves sunsets.”
“People where you live, the little prince said, grow five thousand roses in one garden… Yet they don’t find what they’re looking for… And yet what they’re looking for could be found in a single rose.”
“But the conceited man did not hear him. Conceited people never hear anything but praise.”
“What matters most are the simple pleasures so abundant that we can all enjoy them…Happiness doesn’t lie in the objects we gather around us. To find it, all we need to do is open our eyes.”
“Where are the people?” resumed the little prince at last. “It’s a little lonely in the desert…” “It is lonely when you’re among people, too,” said the snake.”
“What makes the desert beautiful,’ said the little prince, ‘is that somewhere it hides a well…”
“For me, you are only a little boy just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you have no need of me, either. For you, I’m only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, we’ll need each other. You’ll be the only boy in the world for me and I’ll be the only fox in the world for you.”
“To forget a friend is sad. Not everyone has had a friend.”
“Only the children know what they are looking for.”
“Sometimes, there is no harm in putting off a piece of work until another day.”
“I should have judged her according to her actions, not her words.”
“Nevertheless he is the only one of them all who does not seem to me ridiculous. Perhaps that is because he is thinking of something else besides himself.”
“The one thing I love in life is to sleep.”
“The machine does not isolate man from the great problems of nature but plunges him more deeply into them.”
“And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me.”

Closing thoughts

I hope you have enjoyed these Little Prince quotes. Admittedly, they are sometimes difficult to fathom at first. However, like many things in life, the more you think about them, the more they begin to make sense.
This is not an easy book to read and the bittersweet ending may leave you feeling a little heartbroken. However, the book offers so many insights into the human condition that it is well worth the time spent thinking about the philosophical ideas contained between the covers.

We’d love to hear your favourite quotes from the Little Prince. Please share them with us in the comments below.

Mind-Blowing Statistics About Christianity You Need to Know ~ Holyart

Mind-Blowing Statistics About Christianity You Need to Know.

Mind-Blowing Statistics About Christianity You Need to Know.

 

 

As a religion, Christianity has been around for millennia. It has changed and transformed throughout time – both in terms of the principles and beliefs, the range of denominations it is comprised of and the number of religious believers across the globe.
Amongst all worldly religions, Christianity remains the most widely practiced. There are more fascinating statistics than just the number of religious believers, however, and it is these mind-blowing figures that we’ll be examining in the following article.

2.4 Billion People Are Christians

Christianity certainly isn’t the only prevalent religion in the world, but it might come as a shock to learn that, amidst Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and all other major religious schools, Christianity is by far the most popular.
Global assessments conducted in 2012 revealed that the precise figures pertaining to  the most-followed world religions were:

Quite clearly, Christianity exceeds the other four major religious/non-religious bodies by a significant proportion of 0.6 billion – overtaking Islam in number of followers by an astounding 9.1% of the global population.
The figures have varied throughout history, though, and the number and spread of Christians worldwide has changed dramatically in the past century alone.

Changes in Christian Populations Throughout History

According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, there were only an estimated 600 million Christians worldwide in 1910. This figure has increased enormously in more recent years, with an estimated 2.2 billion Christian followers recorded in 2010.
The research center also predicts that Christianity will remain the world’s largest religion for the next four decades if these trends continue, with a projected 2.9 billion people practicing Christianity worldwide by 2050 and exceeding 3 billion thereafter.
Christianity is expected to remain the largest religious group throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, and Sub-Saharan Africa, too, with more than 50% of each respective population practicing Christianity.
The marked spread of Christianity across non-Western countries has significantly altered the distribution of Christians throughout the planet. During the 1900s, Christian faith was most prevalent throughout Europe and the Americas – claiming around 93% of the the entire global Christian population. In 2010, however, only 26% of the global Christian population was located in Europe, with 24.4% Latin America and the Caribbean and 12.3% in North America – a combined total of 62.7%. With the increase in the number of followers of Christianity in the past century has come a significant shift in their geographic distribution.
Protestantism, in particular, has spread swiftly throughout the continents of Africa, Asia, and Oceania since the early 1900s. A lot of this growth occurred after World War II, during which Africa was decolonized and the strong restrictions against the practicing or Protestantism worldwide were abolished.
Modern-day Christians are spread more thinly across a number of different countries, whereas previously they were concentrated into smaller areas. Let’s take a look at how the spread of the Christian population has changed geographically in the past century.

There Are More Christians in America Than Any Other Continent

While Christian populations were primarily located in Europe and the Americas in the 20th-century, today Christian faith has spread itself worldwide. A comparison of the precise numbers and locations from 1910 to 2010, as recorded by the Pew Research Center, can be seen in the tables below.

When looking at the data, it’s clear to see that the distribution of Christian followers worldwide has shifted quite significantly in the past the short timeframe of 100 years. Whereas previously Europe far-exceeded all other regions in terms of their Christian population, since 2010, the Americas have taken the lead by far.
In areas like Asia-Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa, Christian populations have increased more than tenfold, with Sub-Saharan Africa trailing closely behind Europe. Part of the reason for this is the abolition of anti-Protestant laws that governed Africa during the 20th-century, as well the abandoning of a number of other secular laws worldwide.
Each year, Christianity gains around 65 million more followers due to a range of different factors, including birth rate, religious conversion, and migration. Conversely, 27.4 million Christians are lost annually due to factors including death rate, immigration, and apostasy, or loss/renunciation of belief.
Geographically, the net growth in Christian populations has been most prevalent in Africa, Latin America and Asia. By 2050, it is predicted that Christianity will remain the majority religion in the US, growing in number from 243 million to 262 million.
One study conducted in 2018 by the Pew Research Center shows that Christianity is still the largest religion across all of Western Europe, with 71% of the population identifying as Christians. Interestingly, the same study showed that the vast majority of individuals raised as Christians remained Christian so later in life.
Christianity has also spread throughout countries such as South Korea which aren’t shown in the table above. South Korea has seen a dramatic increase in Christians between 1945 and 2010, moving from 2.0% to 29.3%.

Pentecostalism is the Fastest-Growing Religion in the World

Although less prevalent in popular culture and news when compared to major denominations such as Catholicism and Church of England, Pentecostalism has been shown to be the fastest-growing religion worldwide, according to a 2005 paper.
Pentecostalism is a form of Christianity that emphasizes the importance of the Holy Spirit and the direct experience of the presence of God by the believer. It holds that faith should be experiential rather than something discovered only through rituals and scripture. Members of the Pentecostalist church believe their actions to be driven by the power of God.
The underlying belief behind Pentecostalism is that their movement is returning Christianity to its simplest form – that which has the most in common with the early stages of the Christian church. Perhaps it is for this reason that Pentecostalism is growing so rapidly in popularity, as modern denominations like Catholicism have moved far away from their old traditions in an attempt to modernize Christian doctrine.

Protestantism

The Protestant church, which gives utmost authority to the Bible and believes that any other source of scriptural truth detracts from the sanctity of the Bible, has also seen a boom in numbers in recent years.
This is thought to be a result of religious conversion throughout Asia, Latin America, Oceania, and the Muslim world. In Vietnam alone, Protestantism has grown by an astounding 600% in the past 10 years alone.
An estimated 37% of Christian believers belong to the Protestant faith, which has since been redefined to include Anglican (Church of England) followers and members of independent/nondenominational churches.

Catholicism

In 2013, the number of followers of the Catholic Church was 1.253 billion – comprising 17.7% of the global population. This is a dramatic increase from the figured in 1950, wherein only 437 million people followed Catholicism and 654 million in 1970. The most significant areas of growth have been in Asia and Africa.

In 2010, Catholics were reported to comprise around half of all Christians.

Other Denominations

The Orthodox Communion, which includes Greek and Russian Orthodox, made up 12% of all Christians while other groups, including Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, made up only 1%.

10.2 Million Muslims Have Converted to Christianity

A number of different studies and reports estimate that many more people have converted from Islam to Christianity during the 21st century than any other point throughout the history of Islam. Oftentimes, Muslims that convert to Christianity face the risks of social rejection and even imprisonment and murder in more radical states. Regardless, one global census suggests that 10.2 million Muslims have converted to Christianity worldwide – most significantly in countries such as France, Germany, Indonesia, Turkey, and Belgium.
Throughout the 1900s, more than 250,000 Jewish people were seen to convert to Christianity. The Pew Research Center holds that around 16 millionAmerican Jews identify themselves as Christian – specifically Protestants. The same study suggests that of the Jews who identify as Christians, most of these were raised as Jewish.
Interestingly, some reports show that the number of young people becoming Christians is also on the rise across several different countries. Conversion is also increasing amongst Korean, Chinese, Japanese and American individuals, moving from faiths like Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism to Christian denominations in spite of the risk of persecution.
It is clear that, although the movement of the Western world seems to be directed towards more secular ideologies, Christianity is as prevalent now as ever, growing at an increasingly rapid rate in other areas of the world. Things seem to be a little different in Europe, however.

Christian Populations in Europe Are on the Decline

As of 2012, 2.4 billion Christians were reported worldwide, representing one in every three people worldwide. This makes Christianity the world’s largest religion.
Approximately one-quarter of the global Christian population was found to be in Europe, comprising 26% of worldwide believers, with a further quarter in Latin Amerca and the Caribbean and another in Sub-Sahara Africa.
Between now and 2050, the regional and geographical distribution of Christians is predicted to undergo further changes. It’s projected that Europe will hold only 16% of the global Christian population by then.

Facts and Statistics About the Bible

Holy Bible
As well as Christianity itself, there are a number of fascinating truths and statistics surrounding the literary crux of the Christian faith, the Bible. Some of these are listed in bullet points below.
  • The Bible can be read aloud in 70 hours.
  • There are 8,674 various Hebrew words scattered throughout the King James Version of the Bible, as well as 5,624 Greek words and 12,143 English words.
  • The approximate number of Bibles sold, given away or distributed in the United States every day is 168,000, according to statistics from Wycliffe International, Gideons International, and the International Bible Society.
  • The bestselling and fastest-growing translation of the Bible in the United States is the King James Version.
  • 20 million Bibles are sold worldwide in the United States alone.
  • 92% of Americans own at least one Bible, whether as a gift or a purchase, but only 12% read it daily.
  • There are 40 authors of the Bible.
  • The Bible is excluded from bestselling book lists because it would always rank the highest, with the average American owning 9 Bibles.

Bible Sales Earn More Than $400 Million Every Year

It is clear that the Bible is immensely popular worldwide, matching the statistics which indicate that Christianity is the most-followed global religion. Across the planet, Bible sales bring in an estimated $425 in revenue annually.
Over 100 million copies of the Bible are printed every single year, with religious believers and consumers in the United States purchase an average of 25% of those books. Interestingly, the Bible also holds a record for as being one of the least-sold books, with a translation of the New Testament into Coptic selling only 2 copies in any year since 1971.
Although some of the more esoteric translations of Biblical texts generate far fewer sales than those such as the King James Version, there are more than 80,000 different translations, each selling at least one copy per year and many selling exponentially more.

The Growing Popularity of Digital Bible Resources

As well as physical copies, digital Bible resources have also soared in popularity since their introduction in the past 50 years. YouVersion, for example, a top-downloaded app for mobile services, has received over 100 million downloads and counting. It’s been amongst the top-100 free iTunes apps for 3 consecutive years.
Furthermore, over 60,000 people have been recorded to be using a Bible app at any given moment, with three people every second sharing some form of Biblical quote or verse to their social media outlets. Isaiah 41:10 is one of the most popular Biblical verses online, according to YouVersion.
Digital Bible
77% of people claim that mobile services have enabled them to read the Bible more frequently, and perhaps this is part of the reason for the rapid growth in Christian followers in recent years. Two-thirds of people also state that they prefer bible apps because these give them access to multiple versions of the Bible without added costs. It’s clear that Bible-reading apps are rapidly transforming the way people are accessing and reading Scripture.
Although Bible sales have been steadily increasing for many years now, not all purchasers of Scripture are as knowledgeable in the text as their actions might have us believe. Brandon Gaille cites a Gallup poll stating that less than 50% can name the first book of the Bible, and only 1 in 3 people is aware that Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount. Amidst all Americans that possess a Bible, only 12% are said to read it every day.
Regardless, the religion continues to grow at record speeds. Whether believers are as committed to their faith as the numbers might suggest, there’s no doubt that the number of people that identify themselves as Christian is on the rise.

Conclusion

When looking at the range of fascinating statistics surrounding both historic and contemporary Christianity, it becomes clear that even where Western culture may appear to be becoming more and more secular, Christian faith is still very much alive and kicking.
With more than 2 billion believers worldwide, Christians make up almost a quarter of the entire global population – far more than any other religion.
As digital Bible-reading sources begin to become more and more accessible and religious education more prevalent, it is predicted that Christianity will continue to grow at an ever-increasing rate. It’s sure to hold its title as the most widely-practiced religion globally for many years to come.
