Chinese Christian seeks compensation for demolished house
A Chinese Christian in Yunnan Province has been removed from his post at church by the Communist government because he’s been protesting the forced demolition of his home.
China Aid reports that the authorities forcibly demolished Kai Yiduo’s house last year without providing any compensation. In response, Kai demanded to be compensated. Yet the local Communist officials, the Committee of the Three-Self Patriotic Movement Church, and the Christian Council removed him from his teaching position at the nine churches in Jiake village this month.
He is also banned from participating in the state-vetted Three-Self churches, where he has served since 1996.
Jesus said, “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in Heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5:11-12)
