-China: Becoming the Largest Christian Nation?

by Dr. D ~ April 25th, 2017

China Flag

In 1949 the Chinese Communist government closed down all of the Christian churches and kicked the missionaries out of the country. There were 900,000 Chinese Christians at the time. Later during the ‘Cultural Revolution’ Chairman Mao and his wife declared that there were none, but the church had merely gone underground. Now there are over 100 million according to most estimates with the numbers of Christians increasing exponentially in the official atheist country.

Now comes the claim that at the present growth rate China will pass America with the largest numbers of Christians attending weekly worship services and may soon become the largest ‘Christian’ nation. From The UK Telegraph:

China on course to become ‘world’s most Christian nation’ within 15 years

The number of Christians in Communist China is growing so steadily that it by 2030 it could have more churchgoers than America.  …

Christian congregations in particular have skyrocketed since churches began reopening when Chairman Mao’s death in 1976 signalled the end of the Cultural Revolution.

Less than four decades later, some believe China is now poised to become not just the world’s number one economy but also its most numerous Christian nation.

"By my calculations China is destined to become the largest Christian country in the world very soon," said Fenggang Yang, a professor of sociology at Purdue University and author of Religion in China: Survival and Revival under Communist Rule.

"It is going to be less than a generation. Not many people are prepared for this dramatic change."

Response:  Incredible. Now the Chinese church has come of age and is reportedly sending missionaries to North Korea, Muslim nations, and Africa. What secular folks in the West and particularly the atheist officials in China do not understand is that there is a ‘supernatural’ Divine direction and presence in Christianity that goes way beyond any kind of human organization or planning.

Before I retired, I personally met and worshipped with a number of Chinese Christian business people over the years who came to California on business. One thing for sure, the level of their faith and dedication seemed to be far greater than the average American Christian.               *Top
