In this article, I will talk about the growth of Christianity around the world and the effects that this is having on politics, society and culture.
Countries Where Christianity Is Growing
More or less people in a country are Christian.
Christianity is growing in South America, Africa, and Asia.
Christianity is declining in Europe.
The reasons for this are complex, but it’s clear that the church is growing in the United States and shrinking in China and Russia—although it’s too early to tell if either of these shifts will be permanent.
The effects on politics, society and culture.
The effects of Christianity are felt throughout the world, including politics and society. In the United States, for example, there has been a rise in conservative Christians who wish to enact policies based on their religious beliefs. These include denying civil rights to LGBTQ people and legislating against abortion. On a smaller scale, Christian organizations provide social services such as homeless shelters and food banks.
In countries where Christianity is growing faster than other religions (such as China), we can expect these effects to increase as well
Where there is war or no central government it is hard to know the truth of the situation.
While the Pew Research Center and other sources have attempted to gather data on Christianity in these countries, the situation is often unclear and difficult to research. In some cases, religious freedom is not a right. Some governments have been recognized by the international community but not by all countries; others have no central governments at all; still others don’t officially recognize any religion or have an official census. All of these factors make it hard for researchers to get reliable numbers about Christianity’s growth in these places.
In addition to being a challenge for researchers and statisticians alike, these difficulties reflect another problem: war, violence and persecution can make it difficult for people living in those areas even if they want information about their family histories or current events happening around them – which means that we may never know how many people actually follow Jesus Christ as their Savior!
The links between Christianity and the United States.
The United States is a key player in the global Christian community — and it’s not just because of political influence. In fact, it turns out that even though many people in America identify as Christian and attend church regularly, the number of people who identify as Christian has been steadily declining over time. This should not be taken as evidence that Christianity itself is losing popularity; rather, it suggests that American Christians may be shifting away from organized religion toward an individualized experience of faith.
Problems caused by religion wars in Africa and South America.
Countries in Africa and South America are experiencing religion wars. These countries have a history of mixing religion and politics, which has led to violence. However, this is not just a problem for those areas; it’s also an issue closer to home. While we don’t see religious wars happening in the United States, there are many other ways that religion can be used as a tool of oppression—for example, through policies like abortion restrictions or religious exemptions for businesses that discriminate against LGBTQ people.
Christianity is growing globally at a fast pace.
The fastest-growing regions of the world for Christianity are Africa and South America. But there are also pockets of growth in Asia, Europe, Oceania (Australia and New Zealand), North America, and even the Middle East.
We can see that Christianity is growing in many countries around the world. It has been a very powerful force in history and continues today with its influence on society, politics and culture. At the same time there are some negative aspects of this growth which must be taken into account when analysing the extent of Christian influence in any given place or people group.
