The Story of the Bible
However, in spite of all the persecution, the message about Jesus Christ has spread until today. It is believed over one billion people claim to be Christians around the world. Today in some countries, Christians are still beaten, imprisoned and killed, but the message is still spreading - of God loving the world so much, that he sent his only son, that whoever believes in him will not suffer eternal death, but will live forever with him. John 3:16
Over the last two thousand years, the corrupt religious leaders are still there, teaching people to follow rules and traditions and generally be too busy to enjoy a life fulfilled by being restored in relationship with the God who created us. And evil still reaps havoc around the world in natural and intentional disasters.
