    What % of the World Population Is Dangerously Wrong

    The total world population is closing in on 8 billion people.

    Religiously, things roughly break down into these numbers:What are the most widely practiced religions of the world? • The Register

    The world's 20 largest religions and their number of believers are:
    1. Christianity (2.1 billion)
    2. Islam (1.3 billion)
    3. Nonreligious (Secular/Agnostic/Atheist) (1.1 billion)
    4. Hinduism (900 million)
    5. Chinese traditional religion (394 million)
    6. Buddhism 376 million
    7. Primal-indigenous (300 million)
    8. African traditional and Diasporic (100 million)
    9. Sikhism (23 million)
    10. Juche (19 million)
    11. Spiritism (15 million)
    12. Judaism (14 million)
    13. Bahai (7 million)
    14. Jainism (4.2 million)
    15. Shinto (4 million)
    16. Cao Dai (4 million)
    17. Zoroastrianism (2.6 million)
    18. Tenrikyo (2 million)
    19. Neo-Paganism (1 million)
    20. Unitarian-Universalism (800,000)


    My question is this.

    In your humble opinion, what percentage of the world is wrong enough in their beliefs (or lack of beliefs), that they are in grievous danger of spending eternity in a very "bad" place?

    So roughly 75% of the world population at a minimum?

    Probably well over 80% since many who "claim" to be christian are not really actual christians?
    And some "christian" denominations are false?

    Is that fair to say?

    Nope.

    If you had asked this question..."What percentage of the world is right enough in their beliefs (or lack of beliefs), that they are destined to spend eternity in a very "nice" place?"...my answer would have been the same: 0%.

    That is the best part about religion... no matter where you are and no matter who gave the religion, that version is the right one.

    No one told you?

    That's about right. Narrow is the path that leads to salvation.

    Perhaps, simply that dead animals tend to stay that way.

    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    You added “in Jesus Christ” to the verse. While I’m sure you think that’s what it means, it doesn’t actually say that.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
