Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:10-12)
CBN News: Religious freedom is barely even a concept in communist China, and now it’s under fresh assault from the anti-Christian regime.
Chinese American Pastor Bob Fu of the group China Aid, which provides legal aid to Christians in the People’s Republic, recently tweeted, “New Cultural Revolution” starts in #CCPChina this notice to students in a 1st Grade class demanding all parents and teachers to hunt all “religious books, antagonistic books & overseas books including books & videos that are copied/duplicated &translated”. Everyone is mandated!”
“CCP controlled ‘three-self church’ sings ‘Without the Communist Party, There Would Be No New China’. The choir waves Communist Party flags on the pulpit. #Fakechurch watch the video clip here: https://youtu.be/AOVe7tddeqk via @YouTube The Lord is our Way, Truth and Life. john14:6,” he tweeted.
CBN News Senior International Correspondent Gary Lane says this is not only just another effort by the Chinese Communist Party to indoctrinate students, but it’s also trying to prevent disruptions for the 2022 Winter Olympics which will be held in Beijing next February.
“We’ve got an Olympics coming up and the Chinese communist government does not want any disruptions for the Olympics,” Lane said during an interview during Monday’s edition of CBN’s Newswatch. “They really fear there could be protests, a pro-democracy movement going, and so forth, leading up to the Olympics and during the Olympics.”
“So this sends a message to the parents. ‘Look, no outside influence. We don’t want any collusion with foreigners here,’ because they know that foreigners are pro-democracy,” Lane explained. “And so they are indoctrinating students, but they are also targeting not only the youth of China but also sending a message to the adults.” Read More
