"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Minneapolis, MN ( April 16, 2010 — Desiring God has launched a new Chinese-language website to serve and equip an estimated 100+ million Chinese Christians. The new site can be found at

    Each week, Desiring God will post one sermon and one article that have been translated into Simplified Chinese characters. The sermons were all preached by John Piper, Pastor for Preaching at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA (

    The first five weeks will be a series on suffering, from the book of Job. The articles are drawn from the archives of weekly letters that Pastor John has written to the congregation at Bethlehem Baptist Church.

    “Desiring God International Outreach is working to alleviate ‘Theological Famine’ around the world by providing God-centered resources in as many formats and languages as possible," Bill Walsh, Director of International Outreach says. "Several years ago, we began dreaming about new projects to make resources available in Simplified Script Chinese for mainland China. The Chinese website is a huge first step in that direction.”

    Desiring God and John Piper see this as a strategic opportunity to serve the Church in China. According to some estimates, there are roughly 130 million Christians and 300 million Internet users in China. With the launch of this new site, Desiring God resources can be easily accessed and used to equip Chinese Christians throughout the country.

    Desiring God ( exists to produce and distribute resources that spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ. The Desiring God website contains 30 years worth of theological teaching from John Piper, a prominent Christian blog, and web store.

    You are right that there is much more to Pakistan than just extremism, violence and political bickering. Being a pro-peace and a welfare activist I can say that these things can be done on priority basis but some of the factors keeping Pakistan from progressing should be pointed out.
