    It is all the other religions in the world, which have oppressed their people and kept them back that have failed. Hinduism, islam, Buddhism, all religions that have taken too much space in the cultural life of a society, impeding it from growing and developing.


    Yeah. Like being run over by a bus can be seen as a "growth experience".......................

    I don't get what you mean by this. Don't hide your innability to purposefully discuss on the topic behind jerkiness.

    Since it is clear that you are not up to par to pick up a real debate on the topic, I shall dismiss any further replies from you and repost the initial comment to squash worthier debaters on their false sense that Christianity is failing.

    I believe most all religions offer some sort of life after death. Where there is misery there are a lot of religious people. There is something about suffering and having a short life that brings out the "faith".
