A fuss is being made that by 2030 China might be the most Christian nation on earth. It is claimed in the Telegraph that the People’s Republic will have more Christians than Mexico, Brazil or the United States. But even if that nation has a higher number of Christians than the United States, does that mean that the percentage professing belief will be larger than the percentage of belief in America? There could be more Christians in China but the percentage of Americans professing belief could still be higher given that America has a smaller population. And if Mexico and Brazil are being upheld as the other nations with sizable numbers of Christian, it doesn’t necessarily mean that will improve the prospects of freedom in China given the pervasiveness of crime, corruption and debauchery in those particular Latin American countries.
