Ratios count though... It should be measured against to proportion who aren't Christian.

I last heard America has a population of about 300 million, and China has a population 4 times bigger... America will still be far more Christian than China really.

Exactly.

Using the 247mil number in the article by 2030 puts China at ~16.5% Christian, if the population stays around 1.5Bil people (current estimates are around 1.47Bil for 2025). America, as of 2012, sits at 73% Christian; based on 314mil population that's 229.2 mil Christians.

By shear number of Christians, sure, more Christians than anywhere else, but 16.4% doesn't sound like majority numbers to me. Certainly not high enough to label the nation.

Also, this quote made me laugh:

Quote:"If everyone in China believed in Jesus then we would have no more need for police stations. There would be no more bad people and therefore no more crime," she added.

I recall reading the Chinese response to the first missionaries was along the lines "Why did this god take so long to inform the Chinese?"

A fine question.

Similar to what I heard.

I too winced when I read

This is bullshit! And I can prove it. Please click this link

Also, I've been to China three times. I've seen very little evidence of Christianity there. I'm married to a Chinese girl. She had heard of Jesus, but knew more about Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, and didn't know what a church was. She was living in Shanghai, is not uneducated, and is computer literate. That should demonstrate how insignificant Christianity is in China.

That quote jumped out at me too.

Yeah, when people talk about these things, they mean ratios, not absolute numbers. Otherwise, you get stupidly absurd claims when talking about countries with huge populations. If those projections are correct, looking at just the totals, China will simultaneously be the most Christian and most atheist country in existence.

Of course. It's pretty much the most anything country, with more than a billion citizens. I hate when people play fast and loose with statistics to try and make a point.

A fine question.

-Or-
The question could be asked why did the Chinese take so long to listen to God?

Missions to China did not just start. An arguement can be made for 1 century missionaries that went eastward.

The fact that it took 2000 years for the gospel to take root in a nation so large speaks to a people not willing or ready to hear what God has to say.

Look at this message board or a strong paralell.

If you want to ask me a question feel free to Pm me or E/M me. I will not speak of it to anyone.
