As a result, the Islamists’ ability to intimidate their captive populations is weakened

Will someone please tell the Europeans?

Good read. I believe once this struggle has run its course, the decision of Osama bin Ladin to bomb the World Trade Center and declare war on the U.S. will be viewed as a colossal blunder of historical proportions that finally drove the stake through the heart of radical islam.

I sure did not know this was going on. Can these numbers really be true?

While only Catholicism was mentioned, Anglicanism in Africa is growing as fast as it can, along with Evangelism as well as other Protestant denominations.

Ironically, by forcing a split in the Episcopal church in the US, the liberal Episcopalians forced to conservatives to become Anglican African missionary churches. But these mostly white and wealthy conservative congregations are pumping enormous amounts of money to their African Anglican Archdioceses at just the right time.

Eventually this shift is going to cause major changes in Africa, such as the abolition of slavery and Sharia law.

AMEN. Some are finally realizing that islam is a hate filled sect, not a religion.

IMHO, is is the same as skinhead worshiping Hitler.

One of my friends is a Missionary Baptist minister and he went on a mission trip to Kenya about two years ago. While there, he witnessed six muslims convert to Christianity, including a young man from Saudi Arabia whose family will kill him (literally) if they find out about his conversion.

It would be a good thing, if true. I'd like more evidence. I just saw an article the other day that said that Islam had just passed Christianity in the number of believers, and that the reason was the high birth rate among Muslims.

I have a close friend who is a missionary in the Muslim former republics of the Soviet Union.

At the time of President Reagan’s funeral I thought about all the new TV satellite dishes springing up in Iraq and wondered about the impact of such a beautiful Christian service seen for the first time.

Now the Iranian Majlis (parliament) is debating the death penalty for conversion.

Yes, that strategy worked so well for the Roman Empire...

At the Catholic Church at my university there’s a map on the wall and you can stick a pin in the country you’re from. There was one in Saudi Arabia. There were also pins in Iran, Syria, and Jordan.

Christianity is alive in the Middle East, it’s just very covert. I pray someday the Mohammedans will convert to Christianity so that it will one day again dominate the Middle East, where it was born.

Very encouraging article. It is consistent in tone with what I have heard from missionaries. I hope the numbers are accurate.

At any rate, there is no doubt about the growth of Christianity in Africa and China.

“He contrasts the upswing to the efforts of evangelical missionaries in Iran between 1830 and 1979, whose 149 years of work built a Christian community of only 3,000.”

The same thing has happened in China. After about 150 years of strong missionary presence in China, missionaries were forced out as Mao’s forces arrived. My sister-in-law’s mother and parents were among those who just barely made it out. The seeds were planted, however, and now China has many, many millions of Christians despite the fact that it could cost them their lives.

I would like to believe this, but I’ve not seen anything about this on any other media.
