Another post from way back, 2014 to be exact, but one which The Holy Spirit is urging me to share again!
In the period 1949-1979, maybe even into the 1990’s,
“The Chinese church was forced to develop a very simple, passionate, and pure faith. Their theology consisted of giving your life to Jesus, being baptised, healing the sick, and telling others about it.”
– Paul Golf, The Coming Chinese Church P42.
They had no Scriptures to read — very few could even read at all — all they had was pure, raw, child-like Faith — Faith as a child.
That’s the secret. Child-like Faith.
Healing was not so much prayer as shouting ‘Hallelujah’ over a sick person and them receiving, usually, instant healing.
Why do we complicate everything so much?
Theology has destroyed as many faiths as it has confirmed — only a slight exaggeration on my part.
Why do we have to think our Faith out with our understanding? After all, God uses the weak to confound the strong; the simple to confound the wise.
What a lesson this is for all of us. If China can increase it’s Church one-hundred-fold in just over half a century — without theology or even scriptures — then what could The Holy Spirit do with our Churches?
Oh – this is just so exciting to me!
A Church based on child-like Faith, and a one word healing program. LOL – don’t you love it?
