Persecution against Christians in China is worse today than at any other time in the last 20 years. China is effectively using social media to persecute Christians and ostracize them from society. In July 2019, China kept 2.5 million passengers from flying and prohibited the purchase of more than 90,000 train tickets by those with a low rating on their social media.
Social media platforms are used to monitor Christians in China and to punish them for not denying Jesus Christ. In addition, China is working on putting up 700 million digital cameras to monitor and track the movements of its citizens – including Christians. Although advanced technology has been primarily used to enhance the quality of life, China has been weaponizing it to persecute citizens that they deem to be a danger – primarily Christians.
China is not alone in this. There are many countries around the world that have been closely watching China to learn how to use technology for their governments as well. Nations like Iran and North Korea have already brought in Chinese experts to enhance their Internet security in order to target Christian activity.
Whistle blowers have also reported that large corporations are taking steps similar to China’s actions. Facebook, YouTube, Apple, and Google have already implemented policies to prevent Christian ministries from directly accessing each other and to suppress their content – either through outright blocking or through a new strategy known as shadow banning.
To adapt to this ever-changing environment, BTJ has gathered a small group of like-minded individuals to help Christians navigate these waters and create innovative ways of sharing the Gospel. That is why we have created www.dingdash.com for closed nations, which will launch in November of this year. It is also the reason we created digital bibles that fit in the palm of your hand and the Gospel Cloud unit that shares the Gospel through independent Wi-Fi systems.
Of course, the big game changer has been the pill-size hologram Bible that projects the entire bible in the air in front of your face.
There is a Gospel battlefield today that is more technologically advanced than ever before. The rules on this battlefield keep changing which means that we must constantly adapt to it. In order to meet this challenge, we are calling all computer programmers, code writers, hackers, and gamers to join us for a special event that we are calling the Back to Jerusalem Hackers Conference. This is a short two-day event that will be held at the beginning of February 2020 in Tennessee.
The cost to attend this meeting is $0. All housing and food will be provided. Attendees only need to (1) provide their own transportation to and from the meeting and (2) submit a security form for a background check. Space is extremely limited, and the registration deadline is October 31, 2019.
Our staff will be hosting this meeting and introducing our never-before-seen electronic units as we present various challenges facing Christians today. In our group sessions, there will be brainstorming and strategizing on ways to enhance current products, invent new products, and bypass current network restrictions in closed nations.
If you are a computer programmer, game designer, or code writer and would like to use your skills to complete the Great Commission, then we would love to invite you to join us.
