Chinese Church Destroyed

Jun 12, 2017

A Christian Church in China was invaded by 300 police and officials. 40 Christians were dragged out. Dozens were beaten, pushed to the ground, and their hands were twisted. 8 Christians are in custody. The church was demolished after it was declared to be an illegal structure. One Christian observer said that the destruction was reminiscent of what the Japanese did in China during World War II. Chinese government officials took phones, personal property, money, and smashed the offering boxes. The Communist Party began a new wave of oppressing religious freedom in the last several months.
