A Western Religion?

Uncategorized Add comments

Chinese Christians outnumber members of the Communist Party.

The association of Christianity with healing powers may be embarrassing in the West, but in China it is one of conversion’s driving forces, particularly in rural areas that lack health services.

The Spirit does a unique work in each country… and really in too many cases the Christianity of the West is the embarrassing bit. Power is why the pagans of old were converted… and the Spirit seems to be doing a peculiar work in a supposedly, officially, godless land.

Interesting. This is something to watch over the next century.

The real trick, however, is to somehow keep Christianity in lands it has already been established. The missionary thing isn’t new… our problem is staying power.
