這種邪惡的宗教 “this evil religion”

I was reading an article in the Voice of the Martyr Magazine entitled ‘China- the school of suffering’. In the article, it speaks of how the government in many villages have scrawled the words….

當心邪惡的宗教

Beware of the evil religion

The religion that the government is trying to protect its citizens from is not really a religion at all. It is a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ- Christianity. He is the ultimate enemy of the Chinese government and what they want to keep out of their society.

In America we are seeing a similar attack. Jesus Christ is fast becoming the enemy of the American government. With each new day we see the efforts to push any and every acknowledgement of Jesus Christ out of the public forum.

Many in political places of prominence and power are working hard to completely remove 這種邪惡的宗教 “this evil religion” from every facet of our society. America is rapidly heading in the direction of China, Europe and Asia. To mention the name of Christ will most certainly bring retribution and suffering; but remember the words of our Lord “if the world hat you, you know that it hated me before it hated you”.

There is a unique difference that I see between the church in China and the church in America. The persecution that the church in China is experiencing is fueling a fervent spirit for Christ and His gospel. In America, the church has become so complacent in her religion and the true teaching of the gospel has become so corrupted that those in a positions of prominence and power in the American government have convinced her that the Christianity propagated in the Bible is “the evil religion”. The church in America is not willing to suffer for the Lord that bought her salvation… sad but true.

The purpose for this post is to let our brothers and sister in China, and the all of Asia, that are in the midst of adversity and persecution know that there is a small community church in Atmore Alabama that is praying for them… Not that God will take you out of the fire, but that He will gird you up under His Spirit as you stand upon the firm foundation of His word.

“But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.” 1 Peter 4:13

We would make only one request of our brothers and sisters in China. When the judgment of God falls upon the church in America, is that you will pray for us, that He will under gird us by His Spirit as we stand upon the firm foundation of His word.

“I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offense, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.” Hosea 5:15

Remain faithful to the “evil religion” my brothers and sisters, for we shall see Him when His glory shall be revealed.
