    I am actually trying to direct this towards non-christians. But have you heard of what's been going on in China? They are able to track every move you make and identify people with these new cameras, just by the way you walk if it can't see your face. You can use your face to get authentication for making transactions. Technology is really exploding over there and being implemented in their streets.

    But some years ago, Christianity was on the rise. People smuggling in bibles, secret churches being formed in peoples homes or in "underground" venues. Campaigns began to happen in their streets. But very recently, Chinese government has started cracking down and bringing the hammer down on these Christians with more force than ever. It was obviously coming to them as their government would have to resist this internal force to maintain power. Chinese government does not desire freedom for their people like we have in America and other parts of the world.

    Christianity could potentially start a reform in the land of China, I believe, and change what powers have already been in place for so long now - don't quote me on this but I think that's what the Chinese government is afraid of.

    But my question to you - why do you think Christianity is on the rise in China and has been for some time? Why not Islam? Why not Judaism? Why any religion at all? Is there really something to this Christian business or is it really just a chasing after the wind?

    And if it strictly is nothing but just a religious worship of a god they have desired to worship, what does it matter that the Chinese government lets them do this if it does not affect them negatively? Other than having an opportunity to strike fear and resentment into the hearts of their nation, why even resist? How does it hurt Chinese government to worship a god?

    If it is because there is no god and people who worship a god are stupid, why not educate them instead, peacefully and with order, rather than being a total *** and saying no with a gun pointed at their heads?

    As China Cracks Down on Churches, Christians Declare ‘We Will Not Forfeit Our Faith’

    "why do you think Christianity is on the rise in China and has been for some time?"

    The Lord is moving in this country.

    People recognize christianity is not oppressive whereas many other religions are.

    China has a communism government - power & control over the people, as seen by them monitoring everything and everybody. In essence government being god.

    The government controls the people. Unlike currently America's constitution based on christian principals ie "certain unalienable rights" that are from God ... not the government ... and I do say currently ... threat of socialism/communism on the rise.

    China also is holding millions of muslims in what they call "re-education" camps (in reality prison camps) ... no doubt sometime in the future ... persecution will follow ... it always does with communism.

    Pray for the people and pray America does not go down this road.

    China hates Christianity because it promotes freedom and not communism.
    Christianity promotes sovereignty and not being stalked by a big brother gov.
    The evil men within China's gov want them to be worshipped as God.

    Christianity is becoming more popular in China; and the crack-down is real. Here is a video from an American that has lived in China for over 10 years; has married a Chinese lady; and has a child; so they know what's going on there; sort of the man-on-the-street video. It's a little slow till about 4 minutes in so hang on; it's also about other religions.

    Throughout history, all the countries, the same, as God Said and Directed.

    We may plant, and some may water, but it is God Who Gives Growth, as He Says, as He Pleases.

    The official numbers of Christians and Muslims are actually about the same. And I think it's easier to do underground Christianity then it is to do underground Islam.

    If it is like the rest of the "news" and "politics",
    the "official" numbers are meaningless, except for deception.

    spin, spin, spin in the politics, in the news, as always.
