According to an article in the New York Times The third-largest religious group, after Christians and Muslims, is the “religiously unaffiliated.”
The article goes on to say that “More than three-quarters of the religiously unaffiliated live in Asia, the majority in China. Many of the people in this group do hold some religious or spiritual beliefs and may even believe in a deity, but they do not identify with a particular faith.”
The study is based on analysis of 2,500 different data sources, including censuses and demographic surveys of children and adults in 232 countries. It relies on self-identification, so it includes people who are not regular practitioners or orthodox believers of the religion they claim.
Does this 3rd-largest group pose a threat to Christianity? In what way?
Is the Making Disciples of all “Ethnic Groups” becoming less or more possible?
Doesn’t this information restate the importance of “GOING” in the Making of Disciples?
