"In some places, that has led to the emergence of shamens, but the Christian church is also growing and deepening its roots there", he said.

  1. It would help if the writer refrained from using "churches" to designate groups of worshiping Christians. Right now, as it's written, they could be anything. He might be speaking of groups worshiping Mary, the mother of Jesus (Y'shua) or saints or true followers of God's own Word come in the flesh.

  2. The "church age" is over. Please find new terms to help us pray for them who truly are our brethren "in Christ," in Messiah. Christianity and "the church" are not synonymous. That is one of the greatest disservices the western world had done to it's own.
