Jesus is neither an -ity or an -ism.

More than 85% of the world’s population is part of a religion.

Could you carry on a conversation to find common ground with those of other faiths?

  • Baha'i
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Confucianism
  • Hinduism
  • Islam
  • Jainism
  • Judaism
  • Shinto
  • Sikhism
  • Taoism
  • Zoroastrianism
While I much prefer to talk about Jesus rather than Christianity, since I have no idea what others hear when I say the words Christian or Christianity, it is still useful to classify religious practice for purposes of study.

Religion can be like language though,

You can study a language, and never learn it.
You can learn a language without ever studying it.

Jesus is neither an -ity nor an -ism.

There is reasonable agreement among information sources about the total number of adherents of the world's largest religions. However, the data should not be considered precise. Some things cannot be measured precisely.

Major religions of the world ranked by number of adherents. (2005).
