Government-endorsed religion is an issue. Clearly it is up to us to do our part. Maybe that part is to find out the truth – to come out from under the influence of government-endorsed religion. Maybe that part is to tell the truth about government-endorsed religion, so that others won’t fall prey to it.
So, as much as I wrote about how awful these new religious regulations are in China, we must remember what the Chinese government cannot see. The more the atheist government tries to suppress Christianity and prevent people from knowing God, the more those same people will reach out to God to rescue them. And then, the greater the response God will have for both the rescue of those who call out to Him, and His wrath for the government that tried to keep the people from Him.
