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

It is said to be China's biggest church and on Easter Sunday thousands of worshippers will flock to this Asian mega-temple to pledge their allegiance – not to the Communist Party, but to the Cross.

The 5,000-capacity Liushi church, which boasts more than twice as many seats as Westminster Abbey and a 206ft crucifix that can be seen for miles around, opened last year with one theologian declaring it a "miracle that such a small town was able to build such a grand church".

The £8 million building is also one of the most visible symbols of Communist China's breakneck conversion as it evolves into one of the largest Christian congregations on earth. ...

According to some missionaries sent by our particular circle of churches, the Chinese house churchers believe churches such as this one to be compromisers and will have no fellowship with it or any church, evangelical or otherwise, that belongs to the apostate "three self patriotic" official Chinese national church. Oh that we would have this kind of robust devotion to Christ and His words in our local evangelical churches here in the US. But it seems like China is undergoing a generational downgrade when it comes to communism while the underground church grows more potent and the exact opposite is happening here. China is most certainly headed toward Christianity, but not the way this article says.

They're obviously not talking about the underground house churches which are illegal in Communist China, but are blessed by the Lord Jesus Christ with a faith in the face of persecution that puts us to shame.

Yes, everything, like some others I give a thumbs up to this. Now, if they are talking by non-charismatic, q.v., Charismatic Chaos, house churches, then there can be a lot of joy for Christians around the world.

You know there's a problem when the communists don't have a problem with this type of "church".

From the news:
"Since it reopened in 1978 its congregation has gone from strength to strength as part of China's officially sanctioned Christian church – along with thousands of others that have accepted Communist Party oversight in return for being allowed to worship."

Oh.

Protestants also don't have 206 ft crucifixes. Whatever religion this country is kludging together is not Protestantism. And like every other product they export, when they send out missionaries bearing this form of Christianity rest assured it will supplant all other forms of evangelical Protestantism in the world.
