If membership numbers are proof of religious validity as some here say.
Which one is right?

I'd guess it would be the muslims if you go by numbers.
But, the Bible says, narrow is the way and few find it.
The catholics have tried to broaden the way, and the muslims have covered it with blood.

Never religion, always a born again, Holy Spirit filled relationship with Jesus Christ.
No one can pray enough, fast enough, give enough, to earn what Jesus Christ already did for us on the cross.
We need only accept his free gift of salvation and walk with Him.
best wishes

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Well, my whole point was, and is, that someone that frequents almost every religious thread claimed that his religious organization had the most members and that spoke for which one was right.
Well, with about 7 or 8 seconds of research I found that their claim was just a claim, by a fairly wide margin.
So if by their standards of membership, his is wrong to.

If we are truly Christian we know it is too early to count, for there will be a reckoning day, and the numbers will not be what they are now.
We also know there is one way, one truth and one life, and that is through relationship with Christ and not any "religion".

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Well, your self-righteous superiority couldn't help but step forward, could it?

Not at all, you are choosing to believe what I posted was an insult, there is one from the rust belt who posts here who seems to do the same at times, as we have often said here we need to give others the benefit of the doubt in this medium, 80% of communication is non verbal, that isn't available in this format, thus we need to not jump on someone and misconstrue what they are communicating.

You first post this-"As rare as it is. I completely agree."
I did not take offense, but you chose to, we all must avoid doing that if this is if we are His and rightly represent Him as He indwells us.
best wishes

Ok, I'm gonna take you at your word, and will concede for the time being, and we'll see where it goes.
