Christianity is the largest religion in the world. With a whopping average of 2.3 billion followers, it far surpasses all other religions. But how did this come to be? Compared to other major religions, Christianity is fairly young, being founded after Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Originally, Christianity's geography wasn't extremely helpful either, as early Christians were persecuted for refusing to worship roman gods. In fact, Christianity actually began as a sect of Judaism and the founder (Jesus) was a carpenter.
