Christianity finds a fulcrum in Asia By Spengler Ten thousand Chinese become Christians each day, according to a stunning report by the National Catholic Reporter's veteran correspondent John Allen, and 200 million Chinese may comprise the world's largest concentration of Christians by mid-century, and the largest missionary force in history. [1] If you read a single news article about China this year, make sure it is this one. I suspect that even the most enthusiastic accounts err on the downside, and that Christianity will have become a Sino-centric religion two generations from now. China may be for the 21st century what Europe was during the 8th-11th centuries, and America has been during the past 200 years: the natural ground for mass evangelization. If this occurs, the world will change beyond our capacity to recognize it. Islam might defeat the western Europeans, simply by replacing their diminishing numbers with immigrants, but it will crumble beneath the challenge from the East. China, devoured by hunger so many times in its history, now feels a spiritual hunger beneath the neon exterior of its suddenly great cities. Four hundred million Chinese on the prosperous coast have moved from poverty to affluence in a single generation, and 10 million to 15 million new migrants come from the countryside each year, the greatest movement of people in history. Despite a government stance that hovers somewhere between discouragement and persecution, more than 100 million of them have embraced a faith that regards this life as mere preparation for the next world. Given the immense effort the Chinese have devoted to achieving a tolerable life in the present world, this may seem anomalous. On the contrary: it is the great migration of peoples that prepares the ground for Christianity, just as it did during the barbarian invasions of Europe during the Middle Ages. Last month's murder of reverend Bae Hyung-kyu, the leader of the missionaries still...

assalamualaikum,...how are you all,I hope you all doing fine..:)This is very interesting story that you wrote, well I think we have to read it by smile and this story about how 10000 chinese became christian each day, seems to be a so "big" story that each and everyone has to notice...I dont know whats your intention about the idea of reporting john allen's work...but the way i see it either FC or John Allen or who ever it is wants to show to Islam that Christian is growing each and every day that they're getting bigger..BUT John Allen or FC arent fair they did'nt tell us of how many people(not just Asian,to ISLAM all the same) that has converted to Islam EACH and EVERY day,...why?? to John Allen or FC or Christian, what matters is about numbers,it seems that they have this motto of "bigger are better and ready to war" and it will make a great show off to Islam :)..but they forget something, ISLAM dont fear NUMBERS and dont care numbers what matter to ISLAM is the lafal the word LA ILAHA ILLALLAH no matter how much they are(the mankind even combined by the genie kind) when ALLAH is in our heart those numbers of barricade will always break through cause ISLAM has ONE, yes ONLY ONE, that back us up,... ALLAH S.W.T (yes, The ONE that created FC and John Allen and Christian too). and what FC wrote or re-wrote and this John Allen guy is predictable,..this such mind war intimidation and others methodes have already begun since the first prophet of ISLAM back thousand years ago...They have this main goal of putting ISLAM at the corner and playing with our mind in anyway, they flip back the words, they follow ISLAM's habbits. They even learn how to say assalamualaikum....:). All these Dajjal's way would last till the end of the time of the world.

when these so called moderator,educated,open minded,broadminded,liberals talk junk about Islam,its show clearly there inside out,they exposed them self in public better then we try to exposed them,like pope Benedict issue a statement about our beloved prophet Muhammad saws,now Muslim consider him a responsible & respectable Christian personality,but he exposed him self very narrow minded & disrespectful,we b hearing & child molestation cases about cardinal,bishops & priests but recently,i got surprise churches paid$ 685 million in lawsuits settlement of sexual abuse cases,now these r the most low & degraded people,who happen to b a guide for them,you think u not going to see ignorants in million?just b patent & let them exposed them self,one by one insh'allah

A'uzobillah! I think this person is here to spread fitnah. People really should ignore him. It's very strange that he claims to be a 'former Muslim' and 'converted back to Judaism', yet he continually posts positive articles about Christianity and anti-Islamic articles.

if u ever get chance to read quran,surah 30.ar-rum/part21,where way before the victory of romans against Persian,Allah swt sent this news about roman victory over persians,Persian were very strong compare to Romans in that time,no one can think of wining,prophet Muhammad saw made pray for roman cz he consider them,brother in faith,those who have believe in god but not Persian,then Persian lost surprisingly against roman & non believer,believed the truth of quran & last prophet Muhammad saw,as Muslim,i think i better see Chinese as Christian then atheist,one step closer towards Islam,thanks for sharing that news.
