On October 2, 2020, DISRN.com published an article reporting that an online Christian bookstore owner in China was sentenced to seven years prison time and fined almost thirty thousand dollars for selling religious books that were unapproved by the Chinese government.
According to the article, the police did their best to destroy all of the man’s book supply and are also looking for those who have done business with the bookstore owner.
The Chinese government continues its efforts to centralize its control over any and all religious activity, especially Christianity. We know that the real enemy is not those who are carrying out this persecution and effort to hinder the teaching of the word of God. The real enemy is Satan who hates God and therefore hates those he loves and wants to save. Yet, the word of God is not bound. God is still working through his people in the local churches to teach and disciple. The greatest need is not for more books, but for more laborers to go and teach and disciple.
