Where Are the World's Christians?

“Global Christianity: A Report on the Size and Distribution of the World’s Christian Population” has just been published by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life. The report locates Christian populations around the world and compares them with other religious groups and with historical estimates of the number of Christians from a century ago.

Using data from the report, I have put together the following simple quiz so you can test your own knowledge.
I will post the answers on this blog tomorrow, or you can look up the answers yourself by reading the Pew study online.

B) Their *message* creed is a false Gospel that Jesus had his second coming in 1914.The problem with this is it's not just a cute fairy tale,Jesus warned of the false prophets who would claim *..look he is here in the wilderness,or see here he is at the temple*.
