A good friend of mine who is from Taiwan shared my website with some of his friends in China. Since China regulates religion so heavily, I was surprised they could view it. Apparently sites are tagged as religious, commercial, etc. and are permitted or banned based on the classification. My sites must not be tagged as religious.
So if you are reading this in China or other countries where Christians are persecuted, please be encouraged that many Christians pray for you regularly. We admire the strength of your faith and the sacrifices you make because of your love for Jesus. If we don’t meet you in this life, we look for to meeting you in Heaven.
For those of you who like realistic fiction, Safely Home by Randy Alcorn is a compelling account that captures the realities of many Christians in China.
See Voice of the Martyrs for more information on the persecuted church around the world. There are many ways to learn about those who are being persecuted and how you can help them by writing letters, praying or contributing financially. Hebrews 13:3 says: “Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured.”
Thought for the day (for Christians): If you woke up tomorrow as a citizen in a country where Christians are persecuted, would you still be a Christian?
