With China’s president visiting the U.S. this week, news sources are looking for stories that fit with the theme of China. The first test flight of a next generation stealth aircraft and a visit by Department of Defense Secretary Robert Gates to the country have provided the most recent fodder for news reports. Today I came across a news story from a different angle.
One thing I’ve heard mentioned about China is the need for more educated Christian leadership. Many of the small house churches do not have trained leaders. This can allow for false teachers to infiltrate the church and lead spiritually immature believers astray. Through cultural programs, American Christians can connect with the better educated and social elite without as many dangers faced by Chinese nationals doing the same thing.
