Raids Against Chinese Christians Continue

"Chinese police raided a Christian gathering in Qi district and detained 45 people, confiscated 23 Bibles, 25 notebooks, 32 Bible photo books, 14 CDs, 3 copies of reading materials and 22 whiteboard pens. Meeting organizers were handed over to the Public Safety Department for education of laws and policies. This is according to a report on a Chinese government website (, accessed July 8, 2010), which boasted of the raid.

"Many Americans assume there is no persecution in China. In fact, Christians do meet freely for worship in some areas of this vast country, but elsewhere Christians continue to face arrests fines and other hardships. The Chinese government places enormous pressure on churches that are not part of the state-run Three-Self Church."
