Chinese Officials vows to rid China of Christian faith
A senior Chinese official who oversees state-sanctioned Christian churches has pledged to rid the Protestant faith in China of any Western “imprint,” calling for further “sinicization” of religion.

Xu Xiaohong, chairman of the National Committee of the Three-Self Patriotic Movement, a government-controlled body that runs state-approved Protestant churches, on Monday attacked what Beijing perceived as “Western influence.”

“[We] must recognize that Chinese churches are surnamed ‘China,’ not ‘the West’,” Xu told delegates to the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. ...

Communism hates competition - Especially Christanity.

But if you take on God in the evil spirit of Satan then you will deeply regret your decision. And You will go to hell and suffer eternal damnation in the fires of hell.

God is working in China. His people will suffer persecution, there is no doubt. Christians need to pray for our brothers and sisters there that God may give them grace and power to fight the good fight.

May God be with His Church and servants in China. Amen.

The commies can no more eliminate Christianity than the Caesars could. It’s here to stay.

The last cultural revolution ended in disaster for the Chinese people and ended at the death of chairman Mao. I don’t see this ending in any other fashion. YA, would a missionary supported IMB be allowed to stay? Or is it only for PRC approved churches that religion is permitted to be established. ?

the guy below who calls himself Euthanasia, you are sinning, I may not be perfect, but I do my best to be a faithful peacemaker.

I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chloe's people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers.

Thank you Quiet and for anyone else with a burden for china. I often look at the news from a different perspective, from the inside... looking out, and just get upset that so much of what is written is wrong, or twisted by the journalists.

But unless I open a teleportal and drop you into China, it is really difficult to explain.

May God open up opportunities for your churches to personally visit China someday.

...large, public targets.

My prayers remain for those who are being persecuted. Perhaps you are one of them, Brother. We who are on the Outside will continue to pray for you and your family. Endure to the end and let us know if there is anything we can do to help beside prayer.

I've heard that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. As soon as I find one of those, I'll ask him to pray as well. As for me, I have no righteousness...mine is all in Christ.

Thanks for giving us the view from ground level rather than thousands of miles, YIA.

I can't help but be confused, though, about your statement that 3,000 people were meeting in an apartment and that this church was seeking to overthrow the government.

Having seen pictures online of what was supposedly the Early Rain facility, it looked pretty large and maybe a stand alone building.

I've also read from more reliable sources those documents proportedly signed by the pastors of Early Rain as well as others. I'm from the Reformed camp, so the document looked fine to me. Plus, there is a document from the senior pastor of Early Rain just before he was arrested:

They speak for themselves and deny that they are trying to overthrow the government.

What it looks like to me is that Wang Yi is declaring another Kingdom, a spiritual one, in the midst of the current regime which is an earthly one. With the current cultural revolution just kicking off and ramping up, it's goal will be to wipe out any concept that is felt to oppose the Communist regime. These men and their congregations are

It's to be expected for this reaction,

didn't we have like 5 news articles this week about that very controversial church with thousands of members meeting in an apartment refusing to register and pretending to persecuted for the gospel but actually their goal was bring democracy to communist lands?

Or how about from the same organization and their approval of religious people idolizing their crosses and calling that a good Christian thing to do?

Gee, I wonder how many times next week will hear the same stories repeated over and over again.

Every pastor says that christian bookstores are filled with theological equivalent of poo, yet get their news from just as equally poopy Christianity today.

I wonder what they would say to the Apostle Phillip's missionary path that ended in China. If there is any remaining remnant of faith in Christ from Phillip's journey, those groups would be as old as the oldest from the West. Don't know much about initial efforts in the East, though.
