5 Most Powerful Religions In The World


There are over 4,200 religions in the world
today among which we are listing the 5 Most Powerful Religions in the world. Not ranked in order Question: What is your religion? I think I have asked that before, but let
me know again. 5. Buddhism
World estimates for Buddhism total at 488 million. Buddhists do not worship any gods or God. People outside of Buddhism often think that
Buddhists worship the Buddha. However, the Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama) never
claimed to be divine, but rather he is viewed by Buddhists as having attained what they
are also striving to attain, which is spiritual enlightenment and, with it, freedom from the
continuous cycle of life and death. Buddhism was founded in India about 2,500
years ago and has around 500 million followers today. 1. Islam
Islam began about 1400 years ago in what is now Saudi Arabia by Prophet Muhammad and has
become a powerful world religion. Islam is the only religion in the world that
is growing faster than the entire world’s population? It’s believed that Islam will be the largest
religion in the world by 2070. The Muslim population is expected to grow
by 73% between 2010 and 2050, compared to 35% for Christians, the next fastest growing
religion. Muslims are expected to outnumber Christians
by 2070. In 2010 there were 1.6billion Muslims in the
world and by 2050, there will be 2.76billion Muslims. 2. Christianity
Christianity began about 2000 years ago in what is now Israel and most of the Western
world (North America, Europe and Oceania) follow this religion which is based on the
Bible. Currently, Christianity is the world’s largest
religion with over 2.4 billion followers or what makes up 33% of the world population. Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of
God and the savior of humanity whose coming as the Messiah or Christ) was prophesied in
the Old Testament. Another reason why Christianity stands the
test of time is because it has played a very prominent role in shaping the western civilization
to what we know it to be today. 3. Hinduism
Hinduism is said to be the world’s oldest polytheistic religions. That big word polytheistic refers to having
many gods. Hinduism predates written history and has
no single founder. Just over 1 billion people practice Hinduism,
mostly in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Malaysia and Indonesia. Hinduism along with Islam is expected to have
a spike in the growth rate, especially with the fascination the religion as sparked in
the Western world through Yoga and other practices. However not as fast as Islam. The reason why Muslims are expected to grow
faster than Hindus is because they have younger converts which means that women will more
likely bring more children with the Islamic faith into the world. Muslim women have an average of 3.2 children
per woman, compared with 2.5 for Hindus and 2.3 for Christians. 4. Chinese Traditional Religion
Chinese traditional religion or Confucianism has over 350 million followers all over the
world making it one of largest religions in the world. You will often find that people refer to this
religion as Taoism. The four major religions and philosophies
found in China are: 1. Confucianism
2) Taoism 3) Buddhism, and 4) folk religion— And these can be seen as individual religions
or components of a broader belief system. The traditional religions of China are Confucianism,
Taoism, and Buddhism. However Confucianism in itself is not exactly
a religion, although some have tried to attach rituals and religious qualities to it. It’s more accurately a philosophy and system
of ethical conduct that since the fifth century B.C. has guided China.. Many Chinese switch between Taoism, Buddhism,
folk religion and other beliefs and practices, depending on the situation.
