Chinese Communists crack down on Christians’ internet surfing
The Chinese Communist State Administration of Religious Affairs instituted new rules this week to crack down on internet religious activities.
The regulations require anyone putting up religious information online to get permission from the government. Worship services are not allowed to be broadcast online. And no one can fundraise for religious purposes online either.
The rules also ban foreign groups from online religious activities in China and any online religious material that opposes the Communist Party of China.
When King Darius banned prayer, Daniel 6:10 records, “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.”
Beijing’s rigged Hong Kong elections
Pro-Beijing parties swept the elections on Sunday. Chinese-backed laws also increased the number of candidates selected by a Beijing-backed committee as opposed to going through the election process.
Christians in Hong Kong are already fleeing the region as China increases its control there.
