Freedom at risk of being 'lost' in Hong Kong, says pastor
With pro-democracy protests continuing week after week, a Hong Kong pastor has revealed his fears over the spread of persecution to Hong Kong.

Pastor Lau Ching-hung, from the City Concern of Christians Fellowships, said that the 'one country, two systems' principle that has governed Hong Kong since the 1997 handover from Britain is at risk of becoming 'one country, one system'.

Hundreds of Hong Kongers have turned out each week to protest against possible incursions on the territory's judicial independence by Beijing.

The protests were sparked by a controversial extradition bill seeking to have suspects sent to the mainland for trial, but they evolved over the weeks and months to express concerns around democracy and human rights in the former British colony. ...

The number of Christians in Hong Kong is questionable, but this is what Wikipedia says about it:
Wikipedia wrote:
About 500,000 Protestant Christians live in Hong Kong. The Protestant Church is made up of over 1,300 congregations in more than 50 denominations. Major denominations are Anglicans, Baptists, Lutherans, Adventists, Christian and Missionary Alliance, Church of Christ in China, Methodist, Pentecostal and Salvation Army.
--https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianity_in_Hong_Kong

Probably for any person in Hong Kong, they should make sure their their British passport up-to-date,

because in 2047 Hong Kong will be completely integrated into China

If Christ returns before then, they better make sure their Christian passport is up-to-date

A more interesting question is, "Why was HOnk Kong a British colony in the first place?"
I think the answer has to do with the Brits getting the Chinese addicted to opium, which I don't think grows in Britain anyway.

For those who know Christ & who are imputed with Christ righteousness, that are living in Hong Kong. May Christ strengthen & encourage His people to press in & through Christ Alone.

In preaching, teaching & living the faith out, their is no King but Christ Alone amen!

PS 73:25-26 Whom have I in heaven but Thee? & there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee. My flesh & my heart faileth, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever.

Wiki says 12% [nominally of course].

Sad thing about Hong Kong is, its evangelization was made possible mostly because it was stolen from Qing China via an unequal treaty after they lost the Opium War with the Brits. That the British ruled it well doesn't excuse the injustice.

This is one reason the Communists got a lot of mileage from claims of "Western Imperialism." They had more than a grain of truth.

What happened to the hymn-singing that we read about here at SA a week or so ago? That article seemed to make the protest into a distinctly Christian movement.
It made me wonder...are there so many Christians in Hong Kong? I know that Japan has very few Christians, and nearby Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world.
