"Christians in China feel full force of authorities’ repression."

The slight and soft-spoken Protestant preacher is no stranger to surveillance. Su has worked for years in China’s unregistered “house churches,” and he said he has been interrogated more times than he can count. But even Su is surprised by what has happened in Guiyang this month: a crackdown that has led to the shuttering of the thriving Living Stone Church, the detention of a priest on charges of “possessing state secrets,” and the shadowing of dozens of churchgoers by police. A local government directive leaked to ChinaAid, a Texas-based Christian group, and reviewed by The Washington Post advises local Communist Party cadres that shutting down the church is necessary to “maintain social stability”— a catchall phrase often used to justify sweeping clampdowns.

The Chinese government has much to fear and so does the American. There is no greater threat to the lies and oppression of tyrannical government than Christ Jesus. He sets men at perfect liberty to order our affairs as we see fit which brings into sharp focus and understanding all of the propaganda, control, and petty rules by swarms of bureaucrats eating out our substance. If the American Church ever shakes off the IRS incorporation under 501c(3) and comes again unto the light of our Holy Creator then the Second American Revolution will be joined.

China is going ahead with their plans for buttoning down for the global economic collapse. Obama is looking on enviously and trying to figure out how to finish transforming America into a totalitarian state in the limited time he has left.

We must all remember that we have been sold out to a global strategy that if not checked will take us into an age where what it is to be an individual part of humanity will be largely forgotten. It was not by accident or chance that the Western world at large manufacturing ability was given over to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.
