the problem for today's chinese christian is that chinese need decent pastor who master bible well, but not those Korean pastors who even have not read bible.
All the stories about Christians being persecuted and not allowed to woship in China are LIES
I am a Canadian AND A CHRISTIAN
who has lived in China for 4 years and I am tired of hearing these lies spread by westerners about China. And by Chinese people who love to have a pity party for themselves.The western media lies, the magazine and website Christianity Today lies, the ICC lies
There are Christian churches everywhere in China, you can buy Christian symbols everywhere and anywhere, like crosses etc and China prints more Christian bibles than any other country in the world.
In the 1980's law guaranteeing freedom of and protection for practise of religions
were passed. Mao discouraged it because he wanted loyalty only to China. The new Government, a Democratic, Representative Presidental Communist system of Govt strengthened these laws and in 2004 there was a day when people were celebrating the new protection for their beliefs and practises. I was there.
China does not allow cults, plain and simple, many so-called Christian organizations are nothing more than cults, such as Falun Gong, seeking protection under the new laws. Falun Gong's leader is descended from alien "gods"; he is all powerful, all seeing, this cult seeks to overthrow the Chinese Govt. They interfered with attempts to control SARS, they burned clinics, beat and terrorized people seeking medical help. They have burned schools, and killed family members who dont share their beliefs. The face Falun Gong shows western countries is NOT a true face, it too is a lie.
The little girl who was burned at Tianamen Square had gasoline poured over her and was set on fire by her Falun Gong mother in an attempt to make the Governement look even worse.
This was during the Mao years and it WAS bad in China. BUT my point is that these cults are terrorists trying to overthrow the Chinese Government. They would NOT be allowed to exist in the USA, Canada or any other western country. They are NOT genuine Christian organizations. This is one example of false Christian organizations trying to operate within China.
Even before 2004 that Christians were worshiping openly in China. I was, the people I knew were.
IF what the posters here say is true WHY are there hundreds of churches with highly visible crosses, WHY are their sites all over the internet in China, with their addresses and times of worship? WHY are people openly wearing crosses and other symbols? WHY are Christian bibles and symbols for sale everywhere?
I could post thousands of links to Christian churches, services and organizations in China, but this should be enough to PROVE to you the media, the Christan sites in western countries, and the people on this forum are ALL LYINGhttp://www.dalian-city-church.com/index2.htmlhttp://www.threeweb.ad.jp/logos/china/icfdalian/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalian_Catholic_Church http://www.sandiegochinese.net/htmls/seid-prc.htm http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2008-08/...ent_9382721.htm http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com/index...;upload_id=1999
