Bible class targeted in China clampdown, Christians interrogated
According to China Aid, more than 30 students had gathered last week at a restaurant for an 'Introduction to Christianity' class and a meal. Around 20 police officers confiscated their phones and took them to a police station, where they were interrogated.

According to China Aid's source, the Christians were kept at the police station for several hours without food or water, and it was very cold in the interrogation room.

Wang Yi and Jiang Rong are being held on charges of 'inciting subversion of state power'.

The moves against Early Rain are part of a wider Chinese clampdown on religion that has also seen around 1 million Uighur Muslims detained in 're-education camps'. According to Bitter Winter, which reports on persecution in China, authorities are enforcing 'church-free zones' around schools, forcing churches to close if they are too near schools. It cites an official order stating: 'All ...

1 Timothy 6:5
constant friction of people of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. Withdraw yourself from such.

Albert Barnes certainly got a lot out of this passage

Barnes' Commentary wrote:
...This passage does not teach that slavery is either a good thing, or a just thing, a desirable relation in life, or an institution that God wishes to be perpetuated on the earth. The injunctions to slaves to be patient, meek, industrious, and respectful, no more demonstrate this, than the command to subjects to be obedient to the laws proves that God regarded the government of Nero as such an administration as he wished to be perpetuated on the earth. To exhort a slave to manifest a Christian spirit under his oppressions and wrongs, is not to justify the system that does him wrong, nor does it prohibit us from showing to masters that the system is contrary to the gospel, and that it ought to be abandoned....
excerpt from, "1 Ti 6:5"

Looking for information on Early Rain Covenant Church I came across the following speaking of a dialogue between the imprisoned and the imprisoning from China Partnership: "The officer said: 'Security is more important than anything'. I responded, 'The value of a soul is greater.' After completing the record the officer asked, 'What doctrines do you all teach?' I sat up straight and recited, Q. What is your only comfort in life and in death? A. That I am not my own, but belong body and soul, in life and in death - to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ."
1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
1Co 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.
Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

I finished kindergarten years ago, JAG, and was actually engaged to the teacher, but she ran off with a second grader. She got her comeuppance, however, when he was drafted into the Army six months after they eloped.

For your information, Mr. Smarty Pants Christopher Three Times a Zero, I have six degrees: AA (Associate of Anvil-Lifting), BA (Bachelor of Appalachianisms), ThG (Trainer and Handler of Goats), and BBS, MBS and DBS (Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Bathroom Sanitation). And my kinfolks didn’t give me any of them. I earned them. Traded up to 25 box tops for some of them, as a matter of fact. Too bad you couldn’t do the same with wine bottle caps, you fleabitten rescue mission refugee.

Just curious what the reason behind the quotes were..."Dr Tim".

I would take that as questioning whether or not he was lying about having a doctorate. The doctorate may have been presented by his mountain kin for completing a course in the science of cleaning goat teeth, or mimicking a crickets chirp at their annual carnival, but I don't doubt that he holds a doctorate, which those quotes seem to call into question.

Yes, DF, dead churches are closing, while living, biblical churches are growing and multiplying. The liberals are not concerned about the dead churches; it is the living ones that threaten their unrestrained wickedness.

I think "Dr Tim" that hundreds of churches already are closing in the US every year, without any govt involvement.

They’ll be closing churches and locking up Christians here in America, too, Jim, when your beloved Democrats have full control.

I think there was another thread about the tough time Chinese are having with their government, and the Christians are having a bad time with the government this year.
Lily Kuo wrote:
Pastors such as Wang of Early Rain are especially alarming for authorities. Under Wang, a legal scholar and public intellectual, the church has advocated for parents of children killed in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake – deaths many critics say were caused by poor government-run construction – or for families of those affected by faulty vaccines. Every year the church commemorates victims of the 4 June protests in 1989, which were forcibly put down by the Chinese military.

“Early Rain church is one of the few who dare to face what is wrong in society,” said one member. “Most churches don’t dare talk about this, but we obey strictly obey the Bible, and we don’t avoid anything.”...

excerpt from, "In China, they’re closing churches, jailing pastors – and even rewriting scripture"
