China continues to demolish churches, censor, burn religious books, and imprison the holy
A precursor to total command of religious thought starts with exclusion of messaging different from those in control
Chinese officials continue to demolish Protestant places of worship, burn religious books, and send worshipers to prison. In communist China, practicing a particular faith, printing, or even reading holy books could result in prison terms and abuse.
Suppression of religious thought, to put it mildly, is terrible and dangerous in any society. The ruthless policies are set in stone in places like China. Still, chillingly, anti-Protestant ideologies can creep into existence in democratic countries when progressive agents chase after fake utopian encouragements in a controlled media market.
Holy thoughts can be suppressed if they are deemed too conservative; the controllers will decide when.
Spiritual believers in China—be it Christians, Buddhists, Uyghur Muslims, or Falun Gong practitioners—face brutal suppression or forced-labor terms and have their religious books burned or trashed at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
In another report, the magazine stated that 26 people in Jiangsu Province, China, were sentenced under the charges of “illegal business operations” to print religious publications meant for internal circulation for the South Korean Good News Mission.
The director and two members of the mission were fined heavily and handed prison terms of 3 years and ten months and three years and six months, respectively, while some printing house managers were fined as high as $15,000 and sentenced to 3 years, with a probation period of 3 to 5 years.

“All churches too close to government institutions must be destroyed, and those that look better than government buildings must also go,” a county government official explained to the congregation. “Belief in the Communist Party is the only religion allowed,” the official said.
