Asian countries have the fastest growing Christian populations. Asia has the fastest growing economies. America’s economy is stagnant and Christianity is becoming more and more despised in the United States. Coincidence? Follow the movement of Christianity around the world and the movement of prosperity and you will find a surprising consistency in each.
I do not believe in the prosperity gospel, that is; God will make His follower rich and successful. However, I do believe that the hand of God blesses His people wherever they are and the residue effect is to bless the society in which Christians flourish in number. History bears this out. Yet, there is still time for America.
God sent a reluctant Jonah to Nineveh with a message of repent or suffer the consequences. Nineveh believed God that He would punish them and repented. The result was another 100 years of peace until they eventually forgot the lessons and returned to their former ways. America’s opportunity to turn back to God is slowly slipping away. Soon, the Asian Christian culture will replace the former Western Christian culture. And American culture will be assigned to the dustbin of history as have the once mighty European cultures.
