Europe used to be dominated by Christians, but has shrunk to the point that it barely registers on the radar screen. America followed and up until 50 years ago was the center of Christianity in the world. Obviously, we are headed in Europe's direction. Is a new center of Christianity emerging in the world, or is the world as a whole about to loose out to materialism, universalism, atheism and agnosticism?

If this map is suppose to be indicative based on this statement by you
I am a Catholic and the CC correctly affirms that ALL are saved (to include other religions)....
This is more in agreement with a modern view of Christianity.
We are not in medieval or even worse biblical times.
then your statement confirms the OP suspicions that:
the world as a whole about to loose out to materialism, universalism, atheism and agnosticism

The number one Christian religion the world is still Catholicism.

The Catholic Church brought Christianity to the world. The Protestants have also propagated Christianity since the 1800s to include third world countries.

Christianity remains a success but we must accept that as nations become more educated they tend to be more agnostic. By the way there folks that call themselves agnostic Christians.

I'm not sure about ALL are saved. That is unknown. Jesus said not all will be saved.

There was a prophecy from Jesus is our church last Sunday morning , and Jesus said `The world is getting dark , and it is going to be darker in the world as sin is growing , and Jesus warned people to stay out of the sin in the world because it will draw you away from Jesus ``.... Then Jesus spirit said that the church still has time for the works of Christ to continue ........ See there are many people in the world who live in sin against God and do not know Lord Jesus and His righteousness ...... See Lord Jesus regulates the abyss which the multitude of the dark spirit abide outside the earth , and through the faithlessness and sin more of the darkness is released into the earth ..... See Christians through their faith has the key to keep the dark spirit in the abyss, and locked up , but through faithlessness and Christians who do not exercises the gifts of the authority of believer , and then just tend to condemn others instead releases more darkness into the earth from this abyss...As the end time apostasy will be the authority for Jesus in the earth in the end time

That map is completely useless. Yes, Christianity is the most popular religion in the world. Yet, for the vast majority, it is in name only. For example in northern Europe, the churches are pretty empty on Sunday morning except for a few elderly folks and maybe some grandchildren in tow. In the USA, while maybe somewhere around 70% might identify with some Christian denomination, a small percentage of those people actually attend church. In my own denomination it not unusual at all to find a congregation where the average church attendance is 25% of the actual membership.
