Nothing here will surprise you but its informative and less than 3 minutes; no words, all in graph images.

Not sure why embedding didn't work but the link does.

The chart only tracked actual adherents but failed to mention that the world's population DOUBLED since WWII. What happens when your chart has 1 data point.

I'd like to his source. Barrett's World Christian Encyclopedia with its annual updates is the most thorough. Another source: https://www.adherents.com/Religions_By_Adherents.html

The poster of the video on YT plainly states in the information attached to the video that his data source was "The World Religion Dataset." Presumably public information, but I have not bothered to search for it.

It's not Barrett's which is the standard. Still interesting but Islam is over represented.

The video is not uninteresting, even if the numbers may be called into question in different ways. Regarding Christians, even among those self-identifying as Christians, there is the issue of the visible church (all the professing people) vs. the invisible church (those who are truly saved). None of us can see the heart of others, so none of us have any idea what the numbers are; really, I'm not convinced they actually matter.

Scripture makes it plain, God is graciously waiting until the fulness of time; if Islam dominates in terms of raw numbers, is that a sign that there isn't much time left? I hope so. There are many other signs. Return quickly, Lord Jesus!

I'm not very religious but this video is interesting enough that I want to do some research on it.
