I know that. I know it bothers some as well. I had a hard time myself for many years trying to wrap my mind around the fact (back then) that most people I run into, most family, most co-workers, most neighbors, most everyone....had a 500 degree oven being preheated just for them from a 'loving' but just God they said. If you really believe that...you cannot come to any other conclusion that the devil won. God lost. He could only save a tiny few. Bummer for us I guess.

Yes, of course you see and know everything. The spirit tells you. Right

Christianity is the fastest growing religion. Tell that to your spirit and see it blow a gasket.

China has the fastest growing Christian population in the world.

So much so for only a few finding the narrow way which you espouse to. Another reason i fully reject bible fundamentalism, the contradictions know no end.

I don't see and know everything, but I do have an extremely high intelligence quotient.
And I have never been known to follow ignorant or arrogant men of deception.


In addition, your statement is subjective as all are not true Christians.
Many are wolves who lead the sheep astray - down a dark path without any light.

An intelligent person would know that no one asked you to follow anyone. You made a comment about you seeing people leaving church and pretended to know their motives, but facts are against that claim. An intelligent person would to come up with more believable false claims.

Here's a few of many reasons.

Five reasons people leave the church | Fox News

from the link

I recently read a blog post by a former worship leader who left the faith after she read a book “proving” contradictions in the Bible. Apparently, she grew up believing the foundation of our faith is a non-contradicting book.
