Challenging Divine Authority: Communist China’s Persecution of Christians

“There was no prior warning. They came in, sat down and interrogated me for a whole day without a break. I later found out they questioned many of my colleagues too. They pressured them to provide information about my ‘religious activities.’ This sudden, dramatic action by the hospital management made me look like a criminal!”[1] Stories like this are a regular occurrence for our Christian brothers and sisters in China.[2] Despite the fact that China has “religious freedom,” the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) does not tolerate unregulated religious practices.

Since 2019, the country has risen 26 places, reflecting a rapidly deteriorating situation for Christians in the country.[3]
