Religious Persecution Rising in China through "Different Methods"
New measures are being taken by the Chinese government to stop the move of God through by suppressing Christians and ban house churches according to recent reports.
ChinaAid.org reports, "On Sept. 28, authorities from Shandong province administratively detained several Christian students for doing missionary work on their university’s campus. After taking them to the police station, officials locked them in cells, hurled insults at them, and confiscated their phones."
Meanwhile according to the report the government In Liu’an, Anhui has announced a special campaign to restrict churches, which they claimed was according to the law. The government is looking to strike and restrict what they call “illegal behaviors” that they associated with Christianity, prevent foreign powers from using religion to infiltrate China, and maintain the “stability” of Christianity in China. The main concern are private church meeting places and pastors who have not been ordained by the state. Should the churches refuse to register with the government, they will be banned, according to the report.
Authorities also plan to suppress churches that are under the control of “illegal” religious and international organizations.
