CHRISTIANS RISE ABOVE COMMUNISTS: China to become the most Christian nation in the world
FREE Catholic Classes
The rapid growth of Christians in China threatens to overshadow the Chinese Communist Party and has the potential to make China the most Christian nation in the world.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - China's Communist Party is the largest atheist organization in the world, with 85 million official members. However, there are an estimated 100 million Christians in China, according to Breitbart.
As authorities continue to crack down on public Christian groups, the greatest growth of Christians is coming from unofficial Protestant "house churches" and underground Catholic churches.
Save Christians from genocide today!
"By my calculations China is destines to become the largest Christian country in the world very soon," explained Fenggang Yang, a professor of sociology at Purdue University and author of Religion in China: Survival and Revival under Communist Rule.
Freedom of religion in China is rare; party members are forbidden to believe in any type of religion.
Since 2013, persecution of Christians in China has drastically worsened, according to the annual reports of China Aid, a human rights group. The persecutions go directly in line with China's deteriorating religious freedom over the last eight years.
As the number of Christians in China grow, the frequency of religious crackdowns increases. Observers say the atmosphere is getting worse.
"Things have got worse this year because the police started to detain us. I was detained for a week," said Zhao Sheng of a Beijing Christian group called Shouwang. "But Christmas is still a happy time. No matter what happens, God is with us."
