You do know a lot about Christianity ,but you haven't made any efforts to try understand why more and more people are getting converted into Christians.
Sharon's death has nothing to do with ...
Mr. Sulivan (I guess you're male), my dear compatriot.
Fyi, I'm used to be a Christian! I started reading bible from my childhood days. The environment where I grew up encourage people to abide by god and live nice daily life, with caring for each other. I felt happy for a lot of people around me helping each other when we encounter difficulties, that suppose to be a right religious way of life. They also encouraged others to join us, the church community and attract others to be one of us. Our numbers grows.
But after I reached earlier days of maturity, I realised that Christianity spread by condemning others, whether it's other's tradition, culture, belief or even other religion. The most significant example is to ask the Chinese to abandon ancestor worshipping by stating that ancestors soul exists no more and if we continue to worship them, we are worshipping satan! Preposterous! That's how Christianity spread, by insulting other culture and claim that christian god created everything in this world.
Why more and more people converted into Christianity? This development already exist from more than hundreds of years. Today, it's because of ideological vacuum in Chinese society, everybody busy making money and mundane matters, they need mind solace and spiritual console. Expansive nature of christianity and political support from US evangelist penetrate deeply into Chinese societies. Missionaries with nasty agenda disguising as English teachers come from all over the world, US, Netherland, Canada, England, Phllipines etc etc, with one mission, to expand their power base in China. Insulting Chinese culture and condemning Chinese tradition are some of their dirty means.
They are successful in you, a Chinese feel no more proud of his identity and feel inferior in front of other culture. The same happens in Taiwan, the presbyterian church ask followers to support Taiwan independence and said that god support them. Do you agree with this god?
Just a British colonizer ever stated when they about to conquer India:
"I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar or who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values & people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage."
(Lord McCauley in his speech of Feb 2, 1835, British Parliament)
