China destroying crosses, burning Bibles
China’s government is ratcheting up a crackdown on Christian congregations in Beijing and several provinces, destroying crosses, burning bibles, shutting churches and ordering followers to sign papers renouncing their faith, according to pastors and a group that monitors religion in China.

The campaign corresponds with a drive to “Sinicize” religion by demanding loyalty to the officially atheist Communist Party and eliminating any challenge to its power over people’s lives.

Bob Fu of the U.S.-based group China Aid said over the weekend that the closure of churches in central Henan province and a prominent house church in Beijing in recent weeks represents a “significant escalation” of the crackdown. ...

For the past years the reformed crowd has said that most these home churches are just pigeoned hole for Charismatic hooligans. And the Chinese are within their rights to do so, practically the same line the RCC has touted.
Okay, but, when they start burning down homes that are Evangelical Free Reformed, jailing their pastors, or when they start sending them to re-education camps, will the attitude then change?

""crackdown on Christian congregations in Beijing and several provinces, destroying crosses, burning bibles, shutting churches""

A Government which is preventing the reading of a Book which they cannot understand, is a government in panic and ignorance.

Satan is doing all that he can to prevent the Bible from being read and accepted in all the nations of the world.

An act like this teaches just how powerful, crucial and necessary is the Word of God to mankind.

2Cor 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

This is nothing new...It happened in Great Britain in the second reformation where the British government "anglicized" Christianity even through persecution and death. This is called Erastianism. Many martyrs died to uphold Christ's Kingship.

From Donald Cargill:

"I come now to tell you for what I am brought here to die, and to give you an account of my faith, which I shall do as in the sight
of the living God before whom I am shortly to stand.

"First, I declare I am a Christian, a Protestant, a Presbyterian in my judgment; and whatever hath been said of me, I die testifying against Popery, Prelacy,
Erastianism, and all manner of defection from the truth of God,
and against all who make not the Scriptures, which are the Word of God, their rule, that so they may commend Christ and His way to
strangers by a holy and Gospel conversation.

"The cause for which I am sentenced to die here this day, is my disowning of authority inthe unlawful exercise thereof, when they, instead of ruling for God, are fighting against Him, and encroaching upon His prerogatives, by that woful supremacy which my soul abhors, and which I have testified
against since I was apprehended; and now again I disown all supremacy over the consciences of men and liberties of Christ's
Church."
