Notes relating to how the chart above was calculated:

     # of Million Adherents:
          The data was taken from World Religions,
          which was adapted from: http://www.adherents.com/Religions_By_Adherents.html

          The value of 170, used for "Christ's Congregation of Born Again Christians who Overcome",
               has been set to about  2.5% of the  "World Population Total"  (170 = 6,789.7 x .025 = 169.743),
               based on values established in "How many will be in Heaven ?"

               The World Christian Denominations table breaks down this 170 into
               104 Protestant, 47 Catholic, and 19 Orthodoxy & Others.
               These values have already been converted from "claimed" to "adherents."

          The World Christian Denominations table breaks down the 2,265 million Christians claimed into
               1,200 Catholic, 670 Protestant, and 395 for Orthodoxy & Others.
               We can convert from "claimed" to "adherents" by multiplying by 2,100/2,265 giving us
               1,113 less 47 above = 1,066 Catholic, 621 less 104 above = 517 Protestant, and
                  366 less 19 above =     347 Orthodoxy & Others, for a total of 1,930.
               This total corresponds to those found in World Religions     ( 1,930 + 170 = 2,100 )

          Similarly, in a typical group of 100 Christians (80 Born Again + 20 not = 100),
               how many would you expect to Overcome ?
                    (Multiplying 80 by our 0.311349 factor (see BA-CC) = 25 = 1 quarter (1/4) of the 100 Christians.)
               For a vivid example of this, read "The Christian's Sword defeats (overcomes) Lucifer and his Army"
                    to see what it takes to Overcome !!!
               (This typical group exactly matches the "other Protestant" line in Table 5 below (80.0% Born Again),
                         but this typical group of 100 could be any mix of Christians from various denominations.)
