Here's What Protestants in 18 Latin American Countries Believe and Practice
Nov. 18, 2014 - Among the findings of an extensive survey by the Pew Foundation, Protestantism is flourishing in
Latin America. About one out of three Protestants share their faith with others weekly. About half of them pray daily and attend
church weekly. Protestant attendance at church is growing at the expense of the Catholic church.
[Unfortunately, from our point of view], the report also found that:
"Prosperity gospel" theology is widespread in Latin America, but not always the dominant view among Protestants.
The prosperity gospel affirms that “God will grant wealth and good health to believers who have enough faith."

Millions of former Muslims will celebrate Easter this year. Meet one, Hormoz Shariat, the “Billy Graham of Iran.”
Apr. 19, 2014 - In Joel Rosenberg's 2009 non-fiction book, Inside the Revolution, he told of “MBBs,” Muslim Background Believers in Jesus. One example
of the movement was Dr. Hormoz Shariat, who in 1979 had been a Shia Muslim shouting “Death to America!” on the streets of Tehran. He later became a Christian,
along with his wife, and they started planting churches of Iranian believers. Eventually they founded a satellite TV ministry. Today, there are over one million
Iranians who love Jesus Christ, and millions of other former Muslims throughout the Middle East, North Africa and central Asia who are celebrating the death and
resurrection of Jesus Christ.
