 China Tells Christians to Replace Images of Jesus with Communist President


The South China Morning Post (SCMP) reports that Communist Party of China (CPC) officials visited believers’ homes in Yugan county of Jiangxi province—where about 10 percent of the population is Christian. They urged residents to replace personal religious displays with posters of President Xi Jinping; more than 600 removed Christian symbols from their living rooms, and 453 hung portraits of the Communist leader, according to SCMP.

The efforts were part of a government campaign to alleviate poverty in the region, since some CPC members believe families’ faith is to blame for their financial woes, according to SCMP. The poster swaps in villagers’ homes represent the party’s desire to have residents look to their leaders, rather than their Savior, for assistance.

“Many poor households have plunged into poverty because of illness in the family. Some resorted to believing in Jesus to cure their illnesses,” the head of the government campaign told SCMP. “But we tried to tell them that getting ill is a physical thing, and that the people who can really help them are the Communist Party and General Secretary Xi.”

 Re: China Tells Christians to Replace Images of Jesus with Communist President

It sounds very similar to North Korea. North Koreans are ordered to displayed the pictures of the three Kim's. If not displayed properly the family, at least three generations of the family could be sent to a death camp.

However was taking place in China and North Korea will soon take place in the world as the Antichrist will demand worship of him.

Let us pray that our brothers and sisters will stand strong in North Korea and China. At least they have endured persecution which is something that America has yet to endure.
