 China arrests 100 young Christians


Chinese authorities arrested 100 Christian young people as part of the government's continuing crackdown on churches outside state control.
The Christians had been meeting for a Bible study in Langfang City, Hebei province, when police abruptly arrived and arrested everyone present, according to the U.S.-based monitor Voice of the Martyrs, or VOM.

The young people, in the sixth through twelfth grade, were taken into custody, interrogated and released.

The students were told to stop meeting together with other Christians and not attend unregistered religious activities, VOM said.

All Protestant and Catholic churches in China are required to be under control of the government, and groups that do not register – the vast majority – are included in the list of "illegal cults."

Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

Luke 12:46, "The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers."
