Chinese Christians Detained for 15 Days for Attending Bible Study

LANGZHONG, Sichuan (China Aid) More than 20 police officers from China’s southwestern Sichuan Province recently detained 15 Christians for attending a Bible study.

Authorities broke into a church in mid-March and took into custody 15 Christians who had gathered for a Bible study. Officers accused them of illegally gathering and “gathering a crowd to disturb public order,” and detained them for 15 days. Additionally, they confiscated church seating, projectors, and air conditioning equipment.

Li Ming, a pastor of another local house church, Langzhong Church, reported that the authorities had also repeatedly targeted his congregation.

    The Holy Bible is amazing and true and worthy and altogether life-changing. All the villains on earth just can’t stand that the Holy Bible exists; they know the Word of God alone liberates human spirit. All the villains including the Western Sodomites cannot drug or enslave anyone who reads his Bible. The Holy Bible = freedom. Both then and now and always.

    The Holy Bible is the only item on earth that is worth risking life for. Many died to preserve it, translate it, and transmit it to others. It has been more than worthy of all the troubles for all mankind.
