    That's not a church. It's a Mideaval Times restaurant.

    Tell me, are they cracking down on all Christianity or just certain groups?

    Well, they have some funny historical reasons for that too.
    Did you know the number one Casus Belli used by Europeans to invade China?
    "Look the Heathens killed a Christian Missionary!!!!".

    Granny says, "Dat's right - Jesus loves the lil' Chinese chil'uns too...

    Christianity Growing In China
    Sep 20, 2013 ~ There was a fascinating article – in of all places China Daily, the closest one comes to an "official" English-language newspaper in China – about the leader of the officially sanctioned Protestant churches in China calling for tailoring sermons for Chinese Christians based on their various personal backgrounds.

    Good thread. It is probably the understatement of the year to say that what is happening right now in China is at the door of happening here in America. Soon we shall see the same thing happen here in America that has happened in China.

    The real church is departing from the false churches in America in this hour. You see these wide is the road gospel messages preached by multi millionaires from pulpits void of any bible - these men preach out of the imaginations of their own hearts. Holiness, obedience to Christ is not the standard. They pick a few verses out of the bible, twist them to fit their agenda and that makes everyone comfortable with their sin and the money pours in. The standard is not Holiness and obedience unto the Lord. ( If you mention it they will accuse you of trying to "earn your salvation".. )

    Neither is that the standard of the three self church in China which is the state run churches. The real churches in China are underground churches and those number now according to Voice of the Martyrs reports to be about 100 million strong. The state run churches are run by the Communists.

    The borrower is servant to the lender. We are servant to China because we are indebted to China. So when you see our government more and more coming against true Christians and targeting them as the enemy what you are really seeing is our govt capitulating to China's because the borrower is servant to the lender. They are ratcheting up the persecution in their own country in order to ratchet it up here. And this will continue... meanwhile the Laodicean church sleeps on because they do not realize that the church is in a warfare and their part is to be holy and set apart to pray in this hour. Instead they are coveting what the world covets and using scripture to vindicate themselves for it.

    Pray for America. We need prayer. I met a girl yesterday who told me her mother went on a missionary trip to Africa. I told her the greatest missionary field is right here now. Start with the churches. The Message of the Cross must be preached instead of this nonsense we are hearing these days. Otherwise we are doomed. Without holiness no one will see the Lord. That is the truth no matter how revolting it is to the enemies of God.
