      Sjina wat erken het dat hy dit oorweeg het om die Christendom die enigste
      amptelike godsdiens in Shina te maak omdat hy en sy adviseurs tot die
      gevolgtrekking gekom het dat dit die faktor is wat die Weste suskesvol
      gemaak het. Ek het tot dieselfde gevolgtrekking gekom in die finale opdrag

      It has been reported that Jiang Zemin, president of China from 1993 to
      2003, said that he was tempted to make Christianity the official religion
      of China (1) — a startling statement from the head of a country committed
      to atheism. What could have moved President Zemin to make such a declaration?

      Chinese scholars spent twenty years trying to discover why America is both
      the most powerful and prosperous nation in the world. Consider the
      following quote regarding their conclusions.

      One of the things we [Chinese scholars] were asked to look into was what
      accounted for the success, in fact the pre-eminence of the West [America]
      over the world. We studied everything we could from the historical,
      political, economic, and cultural perspective. At first, we thought it was
      because you [America] had more powerful guns than we had. Then we thought
      it was because you had the best political system. Next we focused on the
      economic system. But in the past twenty years, we have realized that the
      heart of your culture is your religion: Christianity. That is why the West
      is so powerful. The Christian moral foundation of social and cultural life
      was what made possible the emergence of capitalism and then the successful
      transition to democratic politics. We don't have any doubt about this. (2)


      President Zemin must have known of this research. And since he valued
      America’s economic prosperity so highly, he was willing to replace the
      atheism that communism is built on and in its place embrace Christianity.

      Sadly the Chinese may understand more about our prosperity than we
      Americans do. They reached the conclusion that our Christian heritage is
      foundational to our prosperity. If their research is correct, and I believe
      it is, shouldn’t we be eager to preserve our Christian values and
      principles? Wouldn’t it make sense for American business schools to teach
      biblical values and principles as the keys to successful business?

      As logical as it may seem that America should be embracing Christianity as
      the foundation for business success, America is not. Instead there is a
      growing movement to eliminate Christian values and principles from American
      business. Some examples are:
      · The growing movement to adopt the gay agenda;
      · The wholesale embracing of non-Christian worldviews, such as Islam;
      and
      · The inability to use religious convictions as part of a hiring
      criteria.

      Many political leaders are leading the charge to de-Christianize America.
      For example, presidential candidate John Edwards recently was quoted as
      saying that he does not consider America to be a Christian nation. (3)

      What does this move to de-Christianize business mean for America’s future?
      Based on the Chinese research, one would conclude that America is on the
      road to economic decline. How long this might take is hard to gauge, but
      the inevitability of the reality seems certain.

      What should American Christians do? American Christians should take a stand
      and resist the de-Christianization of American business. Christians must
      understand the critical role that Christian values and principles play in
      facilitating the economic success of our country and be willing to resist
      those who are promoting non-Christian values and principles. Only by
      embracing the truth of Christianity and being willing to fight to preserve
      America’s Christian heritage can we expect our nation’s economic prosperity
      to continue.

      If American Christians don't rise up and take a stand, in time, our
      economic system will implode. America will become a Third World nation.
      This will leave the door open for China and others to take America's place,
      and the nations that take America's place as the economic leader will do so
      by using the Christian values and principles that America is working so
      hard to reject.

      So what are you going to do about it? Are you willing to answer the call to
      arms? If you want to do something, reject the policitically correct
      philosophy of the day and hold fast to our Christian hertiage. The economic
      future of America is at stake. This is no April Fool's joke!

        "They reached the conclusion that our Christian heritage is foundational to our prosperity." Natuurlik is die kommunis/globalis/konspiritualis is maar alte bewus daarvan. Daarom dat die westerse w�reld gelei is na 'New Christianity' en van daar af na 'No Christianity'. Dis die antichris/kommunis se droom: �n willose, vormlose massa wat gemanipuleer
        kan word die belofte van 'prosperity'. Ons sien dit dwarsoor die w�reld so gebeur. Alles begin en eindig by 'prosperity'.
        Daar word gevra: "Are you willing to answer the call to arms?" Maar is dit ter wille van die eer van die Here of ter wille van 'prosperity'? Ek vrees net laasgenoemde: "Only by embracing the truth of Christianity and being willing to fight to preserve America�s Christian heritage can we expect our nation�s economic prosperity to continue....The economic future of America is at stake." Maw: wees 'n Christen, red Amerika se ekonomie! In so 'n lewensuitkyk kom die eer van die Here tog laaste en gaan dit maar om my eie gerief.
        In die 'Dark Ages', wat Michael Novak van skryf, mag daar miskien in kloosters boeke oorgeskryf en langdradige studies gedoen gewees het (agter ho� mure), maar die eintlike ekonomiese opbloei en vooruitgang het (soos ons almal weet) voortgegroei vanuit die reformasie, toe gelowiges teruggekeer het na God's Woord en Sy eer voorop alles gestel het. 'Economic prosperity' was bloot die (genadige) voortvloeisel van hul calvinistiese lewensbeskouing (te getuig deur hardwerkendheid, eerlikheid, jou nederige beste vir die Here). Alles het begin en geeindig by eer van die Here
        se Heilige Naam.
