Religion is falling down. Why should we try to save it? I mean doesn’t that mean those who try are the saved ones ?

Religion is BAD, evil, actually! Religion is all man-made myths and lies. Yet, in contrast, Christianity is true, GOD-given, and led - it is NOT a religion! The practice of no religion will bring anyone to heaven!

But how will this help Christianity? If we go by the numbers atheism is up.

I"m not sure what you mean? Because whether one is an atheist or a theist believer of any faith tradition that rejects Christ / believes in whatever false god, their eternal destination will be exactly the same.

And?
We KNOW the Gospel is not for everyone and we KNOW that not even God can to change the minds of people.
CHOICE.
We present the Gospel, We live and breathe it, We give account of our faith and the choice is theirs.

Does Christianity need helping? If the gate is narrow and broad is the path, isn't that what Christ taught? Atheism et al can win the numbers game. It doesn't change the truth of the matter if indeed Christ is the truth. Truth isn't a popularity contest, indeed it's often very unpopular.
