CHRISTIANS IN CHINA – Jin Yan’s family was chased by the CCP & fled to Korea.

On August 31, 2018, agents assigned by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organized some relatives of Christians from The Church of Almighty God (CAG) who had fled to South Korea from China, to hold a press conference at the Jeju Parliament under the pretext of “seeking for relatives.” They strongly requested the Korean authorities to deport the displaced Christians back to China.

Between September 1 and September 4, Ms. O (吴某, Ms. Wu), a pro-Chinese Korean activist, recruited professional demonstrators along with some relatives of CAG Christians to stage false “spontaneous” demonstrations respectively at the CAG communities in Seoul and Chungcheongbuk-do, and before the Blue House, the executive office of the President of South Korea.

FALSE DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST REFUGEES CONTINUE IN KOREA, HACKERS TRY TO STOP BITTER WINTER

The demonstration of September 2
The demonstration of September 2

While Chinese agents, hired thugs and anti-cultists stage false “spontaneous demonstrations” and abuse refugees, hackers launch a massive attack against the Web site of Bitter Winter, obviously trying to prevent its reporting of the events in Korea 

The Church of Almighty God (CAG), the largest Christian new religious movement in China, is banned there by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and subject to a violent persecution, with several instances of torture and extra-judicial killings documented by independent NGOs. Hundreds of its members have escaped to South Korea, where they are seeking asylum.

One month ago, Bitter Winter disclosed a secret CCP document detailing a plan to harass CAG refugees in South Korea, by recruiting with threats and coercion some of their relatives in China and bringing them to Korea to demonstrate, with the help of Korean anti-cultists. On August 31, Bitter Winter reported that the secret plan was being executed. Prepared by incendiary articles by Ms. O Myung-ok (吴明玉), a Korean pro-Chinese anti-cultist, relatives of CAG refugees were taken to South Korea from China together with Chinese agents, while Ms. O recruited anti-cultists from Christian churches. The latter’s number was minimal and, in order to stage credible “spontaneous demonstrations,” Ms. O had to recruit also local thugs who work as “professional demonstrators” for a fee.

Eastern Light|FALSE DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE CHURCH OF ALMIGHTY GOD REFUGEES START IN SOUTH KOREA

Executing a secret plan that Bitter Winter revealed one month ago, the CCP brings to Korea relatives of asylum seekers of The Church of Almighty God and organizes false “spontaneous demonstrations” with the help of pro-Chinese anti-cult activists.

Christian, Human Rights, Religious Freedom, Freedom of Belief, asylum seekers

On August 4, 2018, Bitter Winter published a secret document by the Chinese Communist Party calling for harassment in South Korea of the asylum seekers of The Church of Almighty God (CAG), a Chinese Christian new religious movement heavily persecuted in China. The CCP called for the recruitment of the relatives of the asylum seekers who still live in China, if necessary through threats and coercion, who would then call for the “return home” of the refugees (who obviously would not return “home” but, once in China, will be arrested and will thus “return” to jail). The plan also sought the cooperation of pro-Chinese activists in South Korea and anti-cultists hostile to the CAG. Continue reading

Chronicles of Religious Persecution in China | “To the Brink and Back”

religious liberty, Religious, Beliefs, human rights, Persecutes Religious

Impression after watching:

The tearful and bloody history of Christians ‘ persecution in China shows us the hard fact and hard proof.
The experience of persecution of Chinese Christians has filmed one after another and every film is a tearful and bloody history that makes people know how the CCP government persecute Christians and their family. The Chronicle of Religious Persecution ” To the Brink and Back” is a short video edited and filmed by our church based on the true experience of Christian, Chen Wenzhong. From the video, we can see the Chinese police arrested his family members, even didn’t let off his 8-year-old son for catching Chen Wenzhong fleeing outside, and as a result, his son couldn’t bear the torture both in body and spirit and ended his young life by hanging …pls. focus on the film and look forward to watching more chronicles of religious persecution.

Eastern Light | Massimo Introvigne | Part 1 : How Chinese Regime Persecutes Christians—Lies and Violence

                       ✼•┈┈┈┈•✼•┈┈┈┈•✼•┈┈┈┈•✼•┈┈┈┈•✼•┈┈┈┈•✼•┈┈┈┈•✼•┈┈┈•✼
As is well known, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) seized power through lies and violence, and it relies on lies and violence to maintain its power. The CCP’s rule is nothing but lies, violence, and murder. The CCP propagates atheism, regarding religion as the spiritual opium of the people. Christians preach the gospel and witness for God to carry out God’s will, but the CCP condemns such righteous deeds as abandoning and breaking up their families, and arrests and imprisons Christians on various false charges. In mainland China, Christians from various house churches, particularly from CAG, suffer brutal oppression and persecution for the sake of their religious belief, some of whom were left disabled or died. Many Christians have gone into exile and were rendered homeless with their families scattered. Countless Christian families have been thus broken! In this episode, we have invited Professor Massimo Introvigne, an Italian scholar of new religious movements, founder and managing director of Center for Studies on New Religions, to talk about why the CCP oppresses and persecutes The Church of Almighty God, whether the CCP’s accusations against The Church of Almighty God are true, and who is the main culprit behind the breakdown of Christian families, and so on. The truth will be uncovered, and the CCP’s cruel and evil essence against God that wins fame through deceiving the public and fights against justice will be exposed. Please stay tuned!

My understanding:

I mean China is a atheistic country, we can’t believe in God in public. The Chinese government don’t let us do it, they arrest many faithful believers. Many bro and sis are jailed, so believing God is not easy for us Chinese Christian.

Eastern Light | Analysis of the CCP’s Persecution of Religious Beliefs Under the Pretext of “Cult”

    🎆🎆🎆 🏩 🎆🎆🎆 🏩 🎆🎆🎆 🏩 🎆🎆🎆 🏩 🎆🎆🎆 🏩 🎆🎆🎆 

Recently in mainland China,the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) government has completely banned online sales of the Bible. E-commerce platforms such as Taobao, JD.com, and Dangdang have already removed listings for the Bible and other Christian literature, and some retailers have even had their E-shops seized up. Just think of the events in recent years— the CCP has dispatched armed police to demolish, to tear down a number of crosses and churches, and some really beautiful and impressive churches have been demolished. This has been heartbreaking and painful for many believers; so many Christians have surrounded these churches in tears, only able to persist in praying to God. Numerous facts show that the CCP government’s persecution of religious beliefs is becoming more and more serious and it has reached the point of insanity. It is widely known that the CCP government has persecuted religious beliefs for a long time; when it came to power in 1949, it defined Christianity and Catholicism as cults, openly suppressing and persecuting these religions. It defined the Bible as cult literature and confiscated and destroyed countless copies. In 1995, the CCP government then added many house churches to its list of cults, and among them the persecution of The Church of Almighty God has been particularly severe. It has even taken up the slogan: “Troops Won’t Be Withdrawn Until the Ban Is Done.” It has mobilized armed police and army troops to hunt down defenseless Christians. The CCP government openly oppresses religious beliefs, and many foreigners have expressed confusion. Why would the CCP government define Christianity and Catholicism as cults, and suppress and persecute them? Is this kind of wanton condemnation and oppression of religious groups in line with international law? What is the government’s objective in doing this? In this program we will interview
Dr. Raffaella Di Marzio, director of the Center for Studies on Freedom of Religion, Belief and Conscience (LIREC) in Italy, who is also a professor, social activist, and psychologist.
Let’s have a listen to Dr. Marzio’s ideas and viewpoints.
