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.

I have firsthand knowledge, as I was one of those who left fundamentalism and those such as yourself.

If Christianity has an estimated 2.2 billion adherents, nearly 31 percent of the 6.9 billion people on Earth.
That would mean that only 66 million or 3% are actually true followers of the way, truth and life of Christ?

It's asinine to twist what someone says, but I suppose you can't help it.

They added 29 lemmings to the pews. Great! But according to expert Christian in this thread, most of them won't "take" or be true conversions.

The oven in hell only goes up to 500 degrees? My oven here at the house goes higher than that! Can you trust anyone who believes in a god who burns people alive forever? I can't.
