Kidnapped by a Cult

Kidnapped by a Cult

“April 16, 2002, is a day that I will never forget.”

“Although it began just like any other, it lead me down a road that would forever change my life and the lives of thirty-four of my closest coworkers.”

“On that day, I foolishly walked into a carefully laid trap that had taken years to plan and hundreds of thousands of dollars to implement by one of the craftiest and most evil ‘Christian’ cults in the world. I gave myself into the hands of a terrorist organization that kidnaps, tortures, blackmails, and maims Christians in an attempt to convert them. And if their conversion efforts fail, they can kill their victims in cold blood.”

This how Pastor Shen starts off the story in BTJ’s new book Kidnapped by a Cult of when he was kidnapped and tortured by one of the most evil terrorist organizations in China – the Eastern Lightening Cult.

Pastor Shen, founder of one of the largest underground churches in China, is no stranger to persecution from China’s historically hostile government. Time and again, Pastor Shen has experienced deprivation, disease, and imprisonment for the sake of the incredible spread of the gospel in rural central China.

But one day, the persecution reached a new level. Pastor Shen was kidnapped by the murderous Eastern Lightning cult after being lured into a supposed Bible conference. This dangerous cult believes that Christ returned in the form of a female Chinese leader, and they use force, torture, and indoctrination to gain followers. Yet again, Pastor Shen had to take a stand against evil.

This is a story that you will not believe. You will not be able to put the book down.
