China shut down 48 churches after lifting lockdown
After easing the COVID-19 lockdown, the communist government of China has intensified its crackdown on state-controlled churches, removing crosses from their rooftops and closing them down in the southeastern province of Jiangxi, according to a report.

In Yugan county, authorities shut down at least 48 Three-Self churches and meeting venues between April 18 and 30, according to Bitter Winter, an Italy-based online magazine on religious liberty and human rights in China, published by the Center for Studies on New Religions.

Of the more than 1 million people who live in Yugan county, over 10 percent are Protestants who attend over 300 officially registered Three-Self churches. ...

These churches are actually the state approved Three Self Patriotic Association (Protestant), and Patriotic Catholic Association (Catholic) churches, that already have severe restrictions, I.e. bishops, leaders, pastors approved by the state, seminaries have to teach things approved by the Communist Party, no children or young people allowed in the church, sermons submitted in advance with certain topics banned, cameras in the church linked to the local police station and now with the latest face recognition technology etc!!

If this is what happens to the state approved churches, what will happen to the totally illegal Underground churches.

In one province of China, if I read the article correctly, 10% of the population actually belong to the official TSPA churches!! No wonder the Communists are afraid of even these state approved churches!! I wonder how many people in that province belong to the real Underground churches!!! As I see the difficulties in allowing churches to open again after the Coronavirus restrictions in places like Britain and the USA, I wonder if this type of persecution is coming to us eventually!!

""the communist government of China has intensified its crackdown on state-controlled churches,""

Well this is definitely "state-control"

Better be careful China.....
GOD might shut you down!!

Communists are always scared of Christianity.

It was the same in the early days of communist Russia.

Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible."

Job 42:2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee."

Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."

O Lord, in a day when many here in the US are crying for justice for one mistreated man, help us to remember that there are brothers- and sisters-in-Christ who are facing worse. Please cause us to lift up our voices to You for these people who suffer for Your Name sake. We beg You to stand with them in their time of extreme need. In Jesus' name, Amen.
