Just a few weeks ago we brought you up to date with actions in China against the church. But since then the situation has gotten even worse, according to Christian Headlines. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is now taking what people would consider to be the ultimate action against church venues. This is being done in order to prevent Christians from meeting and holding any services period. According to Bitter Winter magazine, local governments have now called for the demolishing of churches or the repurposing of them into entertainment venues, factories, as well as propaganda canters for the CCP. Over 70 Protestant venues have already been shut down. A resident from Suqian city’s Shuyang County told Bitter Winter that a shutdown Three-Self Church was converted into a memorial hall for China’s revolutionary heroes.
On June 5, government-hired workers removed a cross from the church building along with a large pillar with a sign that said, “God loves the world.” In its place was positioned a signboard reading, “Huaihai District’s Military and Political Auditorium”. The church will now be used to teach the young generation about China’s revolutionary spirit, a village official explained. Additionally, at least three shut-down Three-Self churches in Suqian’s Siyang County were demolished. One government official said that People of faith outnumber Communist Party members, and the Party is not winning people’s hearts. He went on to say that the government fears that churches will bring instability, so they are being eradicated to ensure that there are more CCP members than believers.
Just a few weeks ago on October 21, the government of Xiayi County in the central province of Henan called for the demolishing of a former Three-Self church in order to build a new clinic in its place. A resident of that county noted that the venue was closed last year and was used as a clothing factory, which was closed down two months later. In April, the Guangxin district government in Shangrao city shut down an old local church venue after accusing them of organizing illegal gatherings. A month later, the venue was converted to a Civilization Practice Station for a New Era. Party propaganda posters were posted everywhere in the venue, and table-tennis boards were brought inside, a church member explained to Bitter Winter. This is what one church member said.
Among 198 countries and territories where Christians are persecuted for their faith, China has the highest score. It ranks 9.3 out of 10. This makes it the most vicious country against Christians. Let us pray more than ever for our Chinese brethren. God is able to sustain them, for He said, “My grace is sufficient for you; for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2Cor. 12:9). Amen!
