A record number of Chinese Communist members are ditching the Party, this according to an organization known as Tuidang, which assists Chinese Party members in making the exit.
Tuidang’s website says that 391,551,887 “Chinese People Have Quit the Party & Its Affiliated Organizations.” If true, that would be about four times more than the current 95 million members in China.
Regardless of whether Tuidang’s numbers are correct or not, there is a reason why we are seeing these numbers flee from the party and it might not be for the reason you think.
In the last three years, Chinese Christians have seen a rapid increase of persecution sweep through the nation. Some have said that the increase of persecution against Christians is directly linked to the fact that the number of Christians is on pace to quickly outnumber that of Communist Party members.
Unfortunately for the Chinese Communist Party, there is no official data to support that their persecution campaign has had any dampening effect on the daily increase of new believers. Instead, it seems as though the exact opposite is happening and the church continues to grow, while millions abandon the Communist Party.
