Why Did Christianity Succeed?

There are some 60,000gods. Most have gone extinct or have only a few adherents left. Why did Christianity succeed where others failed? Christianity is almost identical to half a dozen other religions, right down to the reed basket, being born on December 25, virgin birth, water into wine, crucifixion, communion with bread and wine and resurrection…

Why? The Romans promoted Christianity, the Flavians may possibly even have composed it because it pacified the Palestinians. Then later imperial Britain and imperial America spread it with the sword. It helped pacify slaves and other subjects. Islam has a nastier, scarier god. That is why Islam is gradually displacing Christianity.
