The Success Of the West

How ironic to read that China has discovered the secret of the Wests success. It isn’t economic, it isn’t political, it isn’t military but it lies within our Christian heritage. The discovery was made by China’s academy of social sciences which is itself atheistic!

“There are now at least 20million Protestant Christians in China worshipping in the state-sanctioned church.” Mr Wang (director general of the State Administration for Religious Affairs).”Such growth is unprecedented in the history of Christianity in China. Christianity is enjoying its best period of growth in China,” he said.

It’s interesting to see that even a deeply communist secular country can find value in Christianity and conclude that this is what made the West Great. We are living in changing times, ‘Aggressive secularism’ is destroying Britain’s Christian heritage and culture, being squeezed out from schools and public life. Are we now to witness the decline of the West as a result of this?  Choose ye this day whom you will serve?

Joshua 24:15(KJV)And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

A W Tozer “Holy is the way God is. To be holy He does not conform to a standard. He is the standard”
