(Worthy News) - A report by Chinese human rights lawyer and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Gao Zhisheng has been smuggled out of China, and it reveals the magnitude and intensity of religious persecution that continues in the communist country.

ChinaAid, the Human Rights Foundation, and Christian Solidarity Worldwide translated and edited the report, which they released last week. Gao himself is in state custody somewhere in Beijing after being kidnapped from his home in August, but his report details how the government under President Xi Jinping violently suppresses religious groups, primarily Christians and practitioners of Falun Gong.

"In comparison to 2015, in 2016 the [Communist Party of China] conspicuously intensified its control and suppression of religious faith, especially targeting Christianity and Falun Gong," Gao wrote. "The external environment for religious faith hit a new low in 2016 after 30 years of suppression." [ Source:Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]

  1. I doubt it will be considered "awesome news" to Christians/Messianics in the USA when it happens there so that following Jesus/Y'shua begins to grow the Way it's supposed to, finally, outside of "the Church" also.

    The Churches are not where Christianity was designed to flourish. "Church" was invented by the Catholic (Churches) and will remain connected to Rome as long as Christians keep using "church" in the place of saying, Believer's/Assembly/Fellowship/God's kingdom/Christianity/The Way/Following Christ/Messianic/Nazarene (not the Protestant denom)/The Bride of Christ/The Body of Messiah, etc.
