Why Christianity Prevailed

Christianity was just a rag tag sect going nowhere until emperor Constantine picked it for the official religion of the Roman Empire. He codified its beliefs. He chose the books to go in the bible and burned the rest. Then he burned anyone who did not adopt Christianity. Constantine gave the assets of the people and temples he burned to the Catholic Christian church. This burning went on for 900> years. That is why Christianity flourished. That is the way religions spread — by the sword. Ask Mohammad. It was not something intrinsic to Christianity that lead to its success. Christianity was almost identical to a dozen other religions.
