(Worthy News) - The Communist government of China is continuing forcing Christians to replace posters of Jesus Christ with Communist leaders, and is turning pulpits into entertainment venues.
Religious liberty magazine Bitter Winter reports that Chinese authorities are going from town to town, demanding that Christian icons be replaced with pictures of Chairman Mao Zedong and President Xi Jinping.
Initial reports of the initiative came out back in 2017, though several Christians have said it continues in full force in different provinces. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
