Muslims now outnumber Catholics

by Steve Ray on April 1, 2008

The Vatican reported that For the first time in history Muslims now outnumber Catholics. This is mainly due to birthrates. For example, Catholics in the Holy Land have fewer children with the intent of making sure each one is cared for and well educated. On the other hand, Muslims often have as many as 10 or more children but without the same intent of education.

I see it very clearly here in Israel. Bethlehem used to be 90% Christian and 10% Muslim, but is now only 30% Christian and dropping. The Muslims are taking over by having more babies. The world is changing. Read my article "Prepare for the Skyline of the Futher."
