The largest Christian-professing church organizations in the world, with their estimated memberships, are:
Roman Catholic: 1 billion
What Did Jesus Christ Say About "Many Different Roads (i.e. religions) To The Same Place"?
"Jesus said to him, "I am The Way, and the Truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." (John 14:6 RSV)
What Did Jesus Christ Say About The Many Differing "Versions" Of Christianity?
"Not every one who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. On that day many will say to Me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your Name [i.e. Christ, they claimed and believed themselves to be Christian], and cast out demons in Your Name, and do many mighty works in Your Name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you evildoers.'" (Matthew 7:21-23 RSV)
