Chinese police demands church remove 1st Commandment

According to members of the government-approved Three Self church, on November 1, around 30 officials from the central “patrol inspection team” for religious supervision arrived at the church in Dongcun village in Henan Province’s Luoning county to conduct an inspection. An official rigorously searched the church before pointing to the first of the Ten Commandments displayed on the wall. According to Bitter Winter Magazine, an online news organisation which specialises in civil liberties in China, the official said: “This must be removed.”

The government officials then immediately wiped off the Commandment.

Churchgoers took down the Ten Commandments sign that day, under pressure from the authorities.

The first Commandment says: “You shall have no other gods before me.” ...

The Chinese government, as the article stated, "wiped off" the First Commandment. In September 2018, the Roman Catholic papacy (which previously "wiped off" the Second Commandment and split the Tenth Commandment) made a provisional accord with the Chinese government, allowing Chinese authorities to select Catholic Bishops. And in our own country, the entire Ten Commandments granite monument set up at the Alabama Heflin-Torbert Judicial Building by State Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore was "wiped off" in 2003 by order of a federal court citing the US Constitution's First Amendment. How is it that a nation's First Amendment trumps the Ten Commandments of Almighty God? "And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God." (Exodus 31:18 KJV) The very honorable Judge Moore was later removed from office for judicial misconduct for failing to comply with the order of the federal court per Wikipedia. In these days, who is willing to stand as did Judge Roy Moore?

That is interesting, Frank.

I attended once a BBC radio recording of a Brethren Assembly "service" in Carmarthen, Wales. I knew the preacher very well, and all those taking part in Bible reading, prayers etc. So I also knew that the BBC producer asked for the whole service to be typed out, so that she could give her consent to what was going out over the air waves one Sunday morning.

The whole thing was shambolic, and I would never attend another one.

As far as I know, the Three Self Movement is simply a communist sponsored church. I think in the beginning, many joined it because they felt it would be better to be able worship with government restrictions than to not publicly worship at all. IOW, they compromised the worship of our Lord. Of course, I disagree with that premise and believe that obeying God’s word is the only thing that is spiritual. When the tribulation finally comes to this world, all false churches will adhere to this thought process. Those that don’t will be forced into house churches or killed for the sake of Christ.

Under communism in Romania the government controlled and approved sermons. They also had rules for baptism, when churches could meet, etc.

Notice the below usage of the word “all”.

Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The 'human' ideology of communism is very scared of the Bible and Christianity since the truth will set the people free.

Satan who is in control of human ideologies such as communism, socialism and Liberalism will do all he can to try to usurp the Bible and God's doctrines.

Exodus 20: 1 And God spake all these words, saying,

2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;"

As verse five teaches the Christian is never to bow down to any human ideological idol whether political or philosophical or religious.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."

Poor fools.

May the Lord be with our Chinese brothers and sisters. Amen.

There is a reason why our God wrote this first of all, on the mount.

Can't stop, off to fellowship meeting.
