    These Are The Countries That Need Jesus The Most!

    A Win/Gallup International poll was recently conducted about religion globally, and the results are astounding.

    (Before checking out the stats, do note that this poll does identify the most dominant religion within each country, though all are taken into account).

    Leading the way as the most “atheist” country is China. According to the polling, 61% of this population identifies as atheist, and this is due in large part to the influence of communist rule. In fact, most of the Christian churches that are located in China choose not to identify as such for fear of punishment by the government.

    Rounding out the top 5 most “atheist” countries is Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Japan and Sweden.

    In terms of “least religious” (but not necessarily atheist), the following countries ranked highly; Israel, Korea, Netherlands, Sweden and the UK. A surprising note is Israel—the Jewish state also ranked very highly on the unreligious side.

    In regards to most the religious countries; Thailand, South Africa, Fiji, Morocco, Armenia and Bangladesh all ranked very highly on the survey. Again, “religious” doesn’t mean that Christianity is the dominant religion—it simply means that these countries tend to lean toward religion in general more so than others.

    A few other interesting notes? The United States identifies as 56% religious, but only 6% of the population identifies as atheist. As for our neighbors to the north and south, Mexico surpasses Canada with 68% to 40%, respectively.

    So—what do these findings suggest? We need to be spreading the Gospel to the places where it’s needed most. Granted, our work isn’t done here in the United States either. But, to our friends in Canada, we pray with you. To our friends in China (there are a few of you) we continue to pray for you, too.

    As our world continues to become more secular, our mission is ever the more evident. Spread the Good News to the far reaches of the world. Through Christ we can do this.

    What country would you like to spread the Good News to?

    1. See that little country in orange in Europe next to Russia? It’s called Latvia.
      I was blessed to live there as a missionary kid for 13 years. But I have to say, the transition out of there, back to America, when my trials and tribulations were at their worst, is when I realized how amazing and sovereign God is.
      The reality is, the whole world needs Jesus. My family lost a lot of our missionary support when we moved back to the states because people were claiming that we “weren’t on the mission field anymore.” That’s a complete lie. What I like about the map up there, no matter the percentage, God is needed within the span of every mile.
      Thank you for sharing this!

    2. Wow, this is really cool. I was actually kind of shocked about Israel but now that I think about it it does make sense. I was actually going to be going on a missions trip to South Africa this summer then it got switched to a different trip. Now I’m headed to Peru and Panama! Haha, Peru is dark blue. Oh well, there are still a lot of people there who have never heard of Christ!
