Despite Difficulties, The Christian Faith Grows At An Excellent Rate

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Submitted by AnneM (United States), Apr 30, 2006 at 13:35

Even in countries were many Christians suffer hardship and even death to get the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ out, the Christian faith is growing at an excellent rate, having just at Easter alone this year adding new members. Because of the hope that is offered in the Holy Trinity, Holy Bible, and the Church, I was able to witness in my parish, 5 young adults, one having been baptized, one received, and three finishing up their receiving of the sacrements of Christian faith on the night before Easter. The wonderful thing about it is that it took place in many churches worldwide during the night before Easter and Easter Sunday itself. The good news of the Gospel of Jesus never grows old and it gets better with time. What has taken place during this past Easter shows that the Christian boom in new members, be they in Africa, Asia, Latin America, or even in the USA, Canada, or Europe is for real and truly Daniel Pipes is spot on in his comments about the Christian faith truly being the fastest growing faith in the world.

Also shows that because the Holy Bible has, the word of God, been sucessfully translated into the languages of the world; is one of the reasons why, if not the chief reason why, it will forever be the number one ( # 1 ) best selling book for all times. There is a true spiritual hunger out there and more folks are coming to faith in Christ Jesus because of this deep desire to have this spiritual hunger filled to the fullest. Also because of the witnessing, often by their suffering as martyrs, Christians still to this to this day are planting seeds that produce the new harvest of new believers. In the USA, in my church, close to up to a million each year, be they adults, children, or infants. In other words, the Christian boom is not going away any time soon.
