House church leader frustrated with relentless persecution
An open letter from the president of the Chinese House Church Alliance has revealed the relentless persecution he and his family have endured under the hands of the Chinese Government.
Pastor Zhang Mingxuan, who heads the Chinese House Church Alliance, issued the letter on Monday to the international community out of frustration over being driven from house to house by officials with no response from the central government or the judiciary system to his appeal for justice.
Zhang, who converted to Christianity in 1986, is used to persecution after having been stalked, arrested, beaten and imprisoned 12 times for his activities in the house church movement....
William Booth and The Salvation Army started out this way.
Back in the 1800s, In "Merry Old England" even !, they used to beat the "Salvationists" bloody & senseless; but the movement grew larger and larger: until it became inter-national !
Old Bill Booth said: "I fear the day when The Salvation Army will be more Army than Salvation." !
That day has long passed; as To-day, The Salvation Army is indeed more Army than Salvation !
The price to pay for apathy & nonvigilance is:
Apostasy ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
