A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Religion in China: Today's Washington Post has an interesting article on the growth of Protestantism in China and how the government is responding.

One thing I noticed in the story, however, is what I would consider a lack of elementary religious knowledge. Or, at least, an unwillingness to call a spade a spade.


Some Chinese churches push the envelope of Protestant doctrine. Eastern Lightning, for example, is a fast-growing group started several years ago that believes the Bible is passé. In a throwback to a 19th-century Chinese rebellion led by a man who said he was Jesus's younger brother, Eastern Lightning holds that Jesus's sister has come to Earth and is Chinese.


"Push the envelope?" This is what any Protestant church would classify as a cult. Jesus' sister!?
