breaking world news china

(Worthy News) - China has tightened its 'choke-hold' on churches across the country in recent weeks, according to the rights and religious freedom group China Aid.

Recent bans on unregistered church worship and on teaching Christianity to children 'as if intending to eliminate all house churches at once,' have alarmed Christians in the country, a China Aid source was quoted as saying by Morning Star News.

In the southern Chinese province of Guangdong, a source told China Aid that in the past week police visited members of unregistered church members at their homes to warn them not to attend Christian worship services, and officers also summoned many of them for questioning.

One Christian who wished to remain unnamed, said: 'The police called me again today and ordered me to stay away from church gatherings, which irritated me. I don't know what to do with these people.' [ Source: Christian Today (Read More...) ]
