China’s Nat’l Religious Committee Met About The Future of Christianity in China – This is What They Said

On July 27, the Ethnic and Religious Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference held a forum to discuss the future of Christianity in China.

Christians from all around China were watching for news from the meeting with the hopes that there would be some sign of easing restrictions on the church. The official reports from the meetings have now been released and they are not good.

Any hopes that the Christians had of seeing China change course were discouraged, when the chairman of the CPPCC National Committee clearly said, “We must improve the sinicization of religions in our country and guiding religions to adapt to the socialist society.”

The committee acknowledge that the construction of religious schools with government appointed instructors has been implemented well, but that the number of government faculty members at these religious institutions needs to grow. “There are still some weak links in training, which are shortcomings in religious work and should be taken seriously,” read the official report.

The situation in China continues to grow more and more intense. Prayers and partnership with the Chinese church are needed more now than ever.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
