But isn't the Bible the traditional Holy Book of the West, and isn't Christianity the religion of the Western World?

Although it's true that the Bible has been embraced mostly by Western cultures, its revelation of Truth is for everyone! Actually, its origins are not "Western" at all! Most of the Bible was written by prophets and seers from the Middle Eastern land of Palestine, a unique land bridge that links the three great continents of Asia, Africa and Europe.
The great Creator, God, from the pages of the Bible, lovingly calls out to all men of all nationalities, saying,

"Look unto Me and be saved, all the ends of the Earth: for I am God, the God of all flesh, and besides Me there is none else!"--Isaiah 45:22.

The Bible's appeal is universal: "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, for the Lord would have all men to be saved, to come unto the knowledge of the Truth. For God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons, but in every nation, all who love Him are accepted by Him!"--Rom.10:13; 1Timothy 2:4; Acts 10:34,35.--In other words, God freely offers His Love, peace, blessings and Salvation to all of us, regardless of our race, colour, nationality or social status!

But Christianity as practiced by many churches today seems to be a rather selfish and closed religion, amassing great wealth, lands, properties, buildings etc.

Sad to say, this is often the case. Much of what the World views as "Christianity" today, has strayed so far away from what simple, lowly Jesus, originally taught to His followers, that very few similarities can be found when you look at the way most Christians live today, & compare their lives with those of Jesus & His Disciples.
Jesus never preached any complicated ceremonies, rituals or impossible-to-keep rules and regulations. Nor did He ever say to build elaborate religious buildings or cathedrals at the expense of the poor! He simply said that our most important religious obligation was to "love God and to love our neighbours as ourselves."--Matthew 22:37-39. He Himself showed His followers how to do this by His Own example of living a life of love and compassion, "sharing with the poor, healing the broken hearted, offering deliverance to the captives, restoring of sight to the blind, and liberty to them that are bound!"--Luke 4:18.
