Chinese authorities demolish megachurch, arrest pastors
Chinese authorities destroyed a 3,000-seat megachurch in Anhui province and detained its pastors over the weekend, ChinaAid reports.
No legal papers ordering the churchâ€™s demolition were provided, but government officials tore it down on Friday â€” even though it was reportedly part of the countryâ€™s officially-recognized church network.
It was mid-worship service when the destruction took place, according to ChinaAid, who provided a brief video clip of the demolition in progress.
Communism = Human ideology and influence over people.
Christianity = Divine ideology and influence over people.
The battle between good and evil is influenced and obstructed by mans sinful ideological presumptions. Politics have had a large part to play in this as we observe in communist nations. The reaction of the Chinese towards the churches is an example of this struggle today.
Man in his natural state is a rebellious reprobate which is activated by people around the churches. We see this where the goats interact with the sheep in communities.
The aggression of the goats is apparent in China where they are demolishing these churches.
As we progress in time political ideologies and parliaments become more and more an enemy of the churches. An enemy of Christianity. In western countries we observe this problem developing in our governments and other areas of the society, culture and the establishment. Moral standards are a big example of this today.
Ultimately with government growing as the enemy of the Christians, the people will follow and WE become the bad guys,
China et al, are a predictive example of this for western nations.
