On July 1st, the Chinese Communist Party will celebrate a century of existence. In anticipation of the milestone, religious groups including churches affiliated with the government are using various venues to exalt the alleged greatness of the Chinese Communist Party, reports International Christian Concern.
Liu Yuanlong, the vice president of the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association, wrote that “God has chosen the Chinese Communist Party” in a congratulatory note. Liu then endorsed church people to “listen” and to “follow” the party led by Xi Jinping.
The increased blurry line between Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda and the official Church in China is alarming, especially as the party seeks to continue its reign in a manner similar to that of North Korea.
Exodus 20:2-3 says, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before Me.”
