Have you ever heard of a poor Protestant country?
Last Saturday my family and I were invited to friend's home for lunch. There I met with a Bulgarian Church of God Pastor who is living in Charlottesville and working on a translation of the New Testament in the Romany (Gypsy) language. At one point in our conversation as we discussed the state of the evangelical church in Bulgaria he asked, "Have you ever heard of a poor Protestant country?" and then, "Have you ever heard of a Muslim country where there is democracy?" His point was that Biblical Christianity brings blessings to a nation, its culture, and its peoples.
