I must admit that I know very little concerning the Eastern Orthodox Church, but I am curious why there are so few Eastern Orthodox Christians? Does the Eastern Orthodox church claim to be the true church? Because, just by the mere numbers, if you’re the true church then you all should be ashamed of yourselves. 2000 years and only 218 million members. I think God’s plan of salvation is more inclusive of all believers, right?
I really hope that the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches can reunite, what do you think?
I apologize for being off the topic of the thread, too…

Allow me to jump in here. Although I feel the orthodox are in error in their timeline, Truth and quantity have no correlation. There are countries in the EU where atheists are now the majority. That doesn’t make atheism any more true than not.
Not sure what the original poster wanted. He may want to clarify what kind of chart he wanted.
