New Report Says Islam Will Surpass Christianity And Become The Largest Religion In The World

Sharing is Caring!

Mecca - Public DomainIf current trends continue, Islam is on track to become the largest religion in the entire world by the end of this century according a stunning new report that was just released by the Pew Research Center. While it is true that Christianity is still growing on a global basis, it is not growing nearly as rapidly as Islam. So unless something changes, Christianity will only be the second largest faith in the world by the year 2070. According to this newly released report, Islam is the only major religion that is growing faster than the global population overall, and it is being projected that the number of Muslims on the planet will rise by a staggering 73 percent between 2010 and 2050

Islam is the only religion growing faster than the world’s population, and it will be the largest in the world by 2070, research has found.
US-based Pew Research Center analyzed demographic change among the world’s major religions and found that the world’s population of Muslims will grow by 73 percent between 2010 and 2050, compared to 35 percent for Christians, the next fastest-growing faith.

The world’s population will grow by 37 percent over the same period. If those rates of growth continue past 2050, Muslims will outnumber Christians by 2070, the report found.

Of course there are religious groups that are growing even faster than Islam, but they were not part of this study.
For example, I have previously written about how witchcraft is the fastest growing faith in America, and yesterday I wrote about how membership in the Satanic Temple in the United States has been absolutely exploding since Donald Trump was elected.
So it isn’t just Islam that is gaining ground.
But without a doubt, Islam is now the dominant worldview on much of the planet. Many in the western world tend to think of it as a Middle Eastern religion, but the truth is that most Muslims actually live in the Asia-Pacific region

Some 62 percent of Muslims live in the Asia-Pacific region with large populations in Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iran and Turkey, Pew researchers said.
In 2050, India is set to take over from Indonesia as the country with the world’s largest Muslim population, according to the study.

In India, there truly is a battle going on for the spiritual future of that nation right now. Christianity and Islam are both making a tremendous amount of progress, and this has greatly upset a lot of traditional Hindu groups.
Islam is making a lot of progress in Europe as well. A tremendous amount of immigration has caused the number of European Muslims to surge in recent years, and this new report is projecting that 10 percent of all Europeans will belong to Islam by the year 2050.
Here in the United States, Muslims still only make up a very small percentage of the population, but that percentage is growing too. The following comes directly out of the new Pew Research Center report

In 2015, according to our best estimate, there were 3.3 million Muslims of all ages in the U.S., or about 1% of the U.S. population. Pew Research Center’s 2014 Religious Landscape Study (conducted in English and Spanish) found that 0.9% of U.S. adults identify as Muslims. A 2011 survey of Muslim Americans, which was conducted in English as well as Arabic, Farsi and Urdu, estimated that there were 1.8 million Muslim adults (and 2.75 million Muslims of all ages) in the country. That survey also found that a majority of U.S. Muslims (63%) are immigrants.
Our demographic projections estimate that Muslims will make up 2.1% of the U.S. population by the year 2050, surpassing people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion as the second-largest faith group in the country (not including people who say they have no religion).

Once the number of Muslims in the United States surpasses the number of Jewish people, what impact will that have on U.S. politics?
That is something to think about.
The report indicated that there are a couple of primary reasons why Islam is growing so rapidly around the world.
First of all, Muslims tend to have larger families than everyone else. The report said that the average Muslim woman has 3.1 children during her lifetime, while all other groups only have 2.3 children per woman.
So in the end, Islam could end up dominating the world just by simply making more babies than everyone else.
Muslims are also younger on average than other religious groups. According to the report, on a global basis Muslims are “seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims”.
Unfortunately, when Muslims become dominant in a society they often want to impose their systems of government, law, economics, etc. on everyone else. That is why “sharia law” is such a sensitive issue, and the report found that in some Islamic countries an overwhelming majority of Muslims want to impose sharia law on everyone else

For instance, a Pew Research Center survey of Muslims in 39 countries asked Muslims whether they want sharia law, a legal code based on the Quran and other Islamic scripture, to be the official law of the land in their country. Responses on this question vary widely. Nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) and most in Iraq (91%) and Pakistan (84%) support sharia law as official law. But in some other countries, especially in Eastern Europe and Central Asia – including Turkey (12%), Kazakhstan (10%) and Azerbaijan (8%) – relatively few favor the implementation of sharia law.

In his new book entitled “Mystery Babylon: Unlocking the Bible’s Greatest Prophetic Mystery“, best-selling author Joel Richardson suggests that the identity of the “Mystery Babylon” that we read about in the Book of Revelation could actually be Mecca.
I am not sure whether that is true or not, but nobody can deny that Islam is one of the most dominant forces on the entire planet in 2017, and it looks like it is going to become even more dominant in the years ahead.
And that is troubling news for Christians and those of other faiths, because all you have to do is to look at countries such as Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iran to see what happens to other faiths once Islam takes total control of a nation.
In a truly Islamic state, there is no room for religious freedom, and so the growth of Islam is likely to be one of the greatest global threats to the free exercise of religion for the foreseeable future.

  1. Before anyone says “racist” – I am not, you can’t be racist against a religion or ideology anyways.. This is a legit concern of many people that I know. As a Christian male, I have only fathered one child. Of course I would love a small platoon of mini-me’s, but I can barely afford one. I do not qualify for any assistance (welfare, SNAP, etc) even when I was working a minimum wage job for a couple of years to due lack of employment opportunities in the fields that I have training, my family was still denied. Studies show historically low birth rates among white Christians, and I don’t think that is going to change any time soon. The majority of us just can’t afford it anymore. And rather than pop out 7 or 8 kids in the hopes of a monthly government check, we try to do whats right, and have the number of children that we know we can provide for properly. It is very troubling, because there is plenty of money going around to families all across America to assist them in raising their children (not advocating a welfare state, just saying it is happening if we like it or not).. just seems that fewer and fewer of those families are American, and even fewer are Christian. I used to not buy into the planned depopulation “conspiracy”, but these days I am at least a little curious if there actually is some truth to it. On the lighter side – China is considering paying families now to have extra children, but I don’t think they would tolerate illegal American immigrants leeching off their system.

  2. “In a truly Islamic state, there is no room for religious freedom, and so the growth of Islam is likely to be one of the greatest global threats to the free exercise of religion for the foreseeable future.”
    An incredibly ignorant and short-sighted statement!
    Consider that ISIS blew up a church in Mosul in 2015 that was 1,300 years old. How can a church exist for 1,300 years in an intolerant Islamic state? For that entire period, Muslims have ruled that land whether they were hand-line, conservative, liberal, or tolerant. Jews had thrived in all Islamic states until the creation of Israel in 1948. Then, the Irgun started blowing up Jewish establishments in Arab lands to scare Semitic/Arab Jews to move to Israel where they found out how discriminated they were by the European Jews. Indeed, Maimonides, the most celebrated Jewish philosopher, came out of Muslim rule.
    Under a true Islamic rule, practicing Christians have preferred to be ruled by Muslims as demonstrated by the willful surrender of Jerusalem in 637 AD. It was Muslims who allowed Jews to return to Jerusalem after 550+ years of exile imposed by the Romans. I needn’t remind you of European Christian treatment of Jews.
    Iran is descended from a 5,000 year old culture. Have you even heard anything good about that country in the Western media? Even now, there are Jews in Iran. 1,400 years of Islam in that country, and Jews have lived there the whole time. Is that lack of religious freedom? Zoroastrianism is still practiced there.
    Mind you, a truly Islamic rule considers God as Sovereign, not the Sauds. The Sauds are just a British wannabe monarchy with an intolerant [Wahhabi] twist that will pass away with time along with the other non-tolerant GCC monarchies. Their 250 year cycle is almost up.
    People in the Afghanistan area have always been hard-living, independent people as you know from history where Empires have gone to die; Islam managed to convert them but didn’t change their culture.
    Islam doesn’t want to change anyone’s culture. See thriving traditions and cultures in African countries, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Pakistan.
    Were you to ask Muslims about the return of Jesus, they could tell you more than you know as a Christian. They live lives that are closer to Jesus’. You wouldn’t recognize him nor understand his language if he were to walk among, and talk to, Westerners. Since almost all Muslims understand Arabic, they would understand his mother tongue, Aramaic. Some call these two languages “cousins.” His disposition, appearance, dress and demeanor would be congruous with a Muslim, regardless of country, and even if you [still] thought that he was a blue-eyed blond. There are such Muslims if you didn’t know.
    It is the Western world that has become intolerant. Their new religion is Democracy, and the Pope sits in the White House. He has waged many Crusades to impose his religion on others who are not interested in it. It’s vulgar, backward and corrupt. He is scared that were Sharia, where God is Sovereign, is allowed to flourish, the Western world’s hypocrisy would become obvious. You may not know it, but its been obvious to the rest of the world for a long time. The Natives had already dissected the Western psyche in the 19th century: they were not afraid of the guns but the tongue of the white man. White man in this instance was the government representative. When other cultures came across similar white government representatives, this is what they said: Hawaiians called them haoles – white devil; the Chinese called them gwailo — white devil; the Japanese called them gaijin — white devil, and I don’t have to tell you what black, and now brown, folks say about white government. Those in US government are a different breed than the common man in the USA. Do you see how you’re not represented in the your own government? But, you’ve been brain-washed to believe a narrative that is contrary to the truth about Muslims.
    I want to point out the obvious: Sharia can NEVER take hold in the USA. The Constitution separates the church and state, whereas in an Islamic state, God is sovereign, ie, church and state are one. If it hasn’t happened is Muslim majority countries, how can it happen where the Muslim population is 1%? And, how long will it take for the Muslim population in the US to become a majority? Not in our lifetimes nor those of our progeny. All that hoopla in southern states about Sharia taking hold is merely fear mongering in which the common man has been ensnared. Why? Because he went to public school, trusts what the media says, trusts what the government representative says, and doesn’t think for himself.
    God help the common man in the USA.
