Pipes Does It Again!!!

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Submitted by Ghaly Shafik (Egypt), Nov 26, 2002 at 20:13

The thing I like about Daniel Pipes is his challenge to what people perceive as true and given. He shows incredible understanding of what he is writing about and owns this powerful force of convincing his readers.

What he wrote was true. A couple of years ago, Newsweek published an article that dealt with the changing face of Christianity and how this faith is undergoing a powerful transition from the North to the South. I heard reports that 30,000 Chinese accept the message of Jesus every day! And the government cannot control the growth of the underground church. The BBC recently aired a documentary at how Pentecostalism is exploding in Brazil and other Latin American contries.

Despite the fact that it appears that Christianity is declining in Europe, several evangelical churches began to mushroom in nations like Sweden, Finland, and Germany. I have recently been to Nice, France and I attended a large Christian home meeting composed of former Muslims who accepted the message of the Biblical Jesus. It's amazing what is going unnoticed (by writers other than Pipes)!
