Christianity Continues To Grow In China In Spite Of Persecution, by Russ Jones, Christian Headlines
"As the world commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre today, leaders maintain that Christianity in the People’s Republic of China is growing rapidly in spite of continued persecution by the nations Communist government.
"The Brookings Institute recently held a panel discussion in Washington DC titled "Christianity in China: A Force for Change?" Experts claim the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre motivated the underground Church and continues to impassion believers.
"'The really committed, devout believers will be increasingly strengthened in their faith by this 'winds of persecution' and honestly the church buildings may be torn down, but that doesn't mean the congregations themselves have scattered," Carsten Vala, assistant professor at the Political Science Department of Loyola University Maryland and one of the panelists, told The Christian Post."
