Skip to comments.One billion souls to save - Christianity in China is booming

A murmur of Amen echoes softly down a corridor in a luxury Beijing hotel. Dozens of young Chinese are gathered in a beige-carpeted conference room to listen to the word of God. After helping themselves to hot water or tea at the back of the room, they find a seat and chatter with friends. They tuck Louis Vuitton and Prada handbags under their seats, switch their mobile phones to silent and turn to listen to a young woman who takes the microphone to ask for silence and recite a prayer.
A casually dressed, grey-haired Chinese man takes to the podium. Let us begin with a look at the Gospel of Saint John. There is a rustling of pages as converts and curious open their Bibles. Almost everyone in the room is scarcely a day over 30. Most look as if they are in their early twenties. They are fashionably dressed girls with high-heeled boots, men sporting trendy knitted hats. This is Friday night Bible class in Beijing. And it is a weekend venue of choice for growing numbers of well-off middle-class city sophisticates.
The fact that this class is technically illegal, run by pastors lacking approval from the state-sanctioned Protestant church, is not the attraction. These are not young people seeking a frisson of excitement from some underground activity. They are at the forefront of a movement sweeping China the search for spiritual satisfaction now that Marx is démodé.

It wouldn’t surprise me that some Chinese Constantine rises to leadership of that country, repudiates Mao and Communism, and proclaims the Christian Church the official religion of China.
I'm afraid they would not hesitate from using any means at their disposal to put it down.
or 100 Million Chinese Templars crusading into Jerusalem in 2030.
Can we expect to see Chinese missionaries in this country? [Considering how the main-line Protesant churches are preaching it might be a good thing.]
This book was published 6 years ago. As America turns away from God and to Statism, China's population is steadily coming to a knowledge of Christ...and opening her markets.
A turning worm. An exciting time to be alive.
We may soon see Christian missionaries coming to the USA from the land Mao once ruled. God's Hand is indeed a powerful one!
...I sure hope so.
This is good news.
I’ve been keeping up with the movement of God in China for about 20 years now (I know several missionaries there).
With all of the 000bama bad news, this is very consoling now.
The Chinese Christians believe that their task charge God is to complete the sweep of Christianity around the globe. "Back to Jerusalem" is their cry.
They also believe that they have a special mission to the Muslim lands which lay between China and their goal: Jerusalem.
They believe they have been particularly called to evangelize the Muslims.
African missionaries began going to Europe, and to this country over twenty years ago. I know some of them.
I hope not. I hope it remains optional so that way the Chinese can be informed and not pushed.
Remember, the minute the Church stopped being persecuted and became a requirement was Satan’s ultimate victory.
I think the Chinese should send some missionaries to America.
Thanks for sharing this with us...
