​China bans Christians from all Church Activities (See Why)


Authorities across several counties China’s central Henan province issued a warning on March 8, forbidding any Christian gatherings in the area and placing Christians under house arrest. Additionally, officials continue to tear down couplet door decorations that use Christian language.
According to an anonymous source in Shangqiu, Henan, Christians there have been placed under house arrest without charge, with police officers watching their residence and requiring them to report where they are going every time they wish to leave the house.

“I heard that many churches in Sheqi County also received a notice that believers cannot gather anymore,” a Christian in Nanyang, Henan said. “Christians are afraid of gathering and they don’t have anywhere to gather either. Times have changed. It feels like the Cultural Revolution.”

The Cultural Revolution refers to the period between 1966 and 1976, when Mao Zedong attempted to destroy all influences besides Communism in China, and was a period of great economic and societal hardship, especially for citizens who practiced religion. Atheism began to be enforced as the official religious belief of the Communist Party.

A Christian named Wang spoke with a reporter on March 9, explaining that the day previous, a notice had gone out to all churches in the cities of Zhumadian and Zhoukou, as well as Gushi County, announcing that all religious activities in the area are cancelled until further notice. Though the warning stipulates that any who refuse to comply will be punished, the nature of that punishment is unclear.

In Tanghe County, authorities forcibly disbanded house church meetings and ordered all participants to register with a government operated Three-Self Church instead. Christians were warned that any who continued to meet would be fined 30,000 yuan (U.S. $4,700).

During the celebration of Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival, which can last several weeks in China, authorities inspected Christian households and removed any decorations which referenced religion. Couplets, which are banners with paired poetic phrases hung on both sides of the door to a house, are very common decorations for the Spring Festival. However, officials tore down all couplets which used the term “Emmanuel” and replaced them with couplets wishing for “good fortune and wealth” instead.

ChinaAid reports on instances of religious persecution, such as the outbreak of events across Henan province, in order to expose abuses by the Chinese government and promote human rights and rule of law in China.

​London Closes 500 Churches; Opens 423 New Mosques


The creeping Islamization of London is almost complete, with hundreds of official sharia courts operating in the capital, and mosques opening where famous Christian churches have stood for many hundreds of years.
“London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together “,

according to Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, one of the Islamic preachers who now lead “ Londonistan “, as the journalist Melanie Phillips has called the English capital. No, Rizvi is not a right-wing extremist.

Nobel Laureate for Literature,Wole Soyinka, was less generous. He

called the UK “a cesspit for Islamists“.

“Terrorists can not stand London multiculturalism“, London’s mayor Sadiq Khan said after the deadly terror attack at Westminster last year. The opposite is true: British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism.

Above all, Londonistan, with its 423 new mosques , is being built on the sad ruins of English Christianity. Many iconic Christian churches in London have been converted into mosques.

Gatestone Institute reports : The Hyatt United Church was bought by the Egyptian community to be converted to a mosque. St Peter’s Church has been converted into the Madina Mosque. The Brick Lane Mosque was built on a former Methodist church. Not only buildings are converted, but also people. The number of converts to Islam has doubled ; often they embrace radical Islam, as with Khalid Masood, the terrorist who struck Westminster.

The Daily Mail published photographs of a church and a mosque a few meters from each other in the heart of London. At the Church of San Giorgio, designed to accommodate 1,230 worshipers, only 12 people gathered to celebrate Mass. At the Church of Santa Maria, there were 20.

The nearby Brune Street Estate mosque has a different problem: overcrowding. Its small room and can contain only 100. On Friday, the faithful must pour into the street to pray. Given the current trends, Christianity in England is becoming a relic, while Islam will be the religion of the future.

In Birmingham, the second-largest British city, where many jihadists live and orchestrate their attacks, an Islamic minaret dominates the sky. There are petitions to allow British mosques to call the Islamic faithful to prayer on loudspeakers three times a day.
By 2020, estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000, while the number of Christians attending weekly Mass will drop to 679,000. “The new cultural landscape of English cities has arrived; the homogenised, Christian landscape of state religion is in retreat”, said Ceri Peachof Oxford University. While nearly half of British Muslims are under the age of 25, a quarter of Christians are over 65. “In another 20 years there are going to be more active Muslims than there are churchgoers,” said Keith Porteous Wood, director of the National Secular Society.

Since 2001, 500 London churches of all denominations have been turned into private homes. During the same period, British mosques have been proliferating. Between 2012 and 2014, the proportion of Britons who identify themselves as Anglicans fell from 21% to 17%, a decrease of 1.7 million people, while, according to a survey conducted by the respected NatCen Social Research Institute, the number of Muslims has grown by almost a million. Churchgoers are declining at a rate that within a generation, their number will be three times lower than that of Muslims who go regularly to mosque on Friday.

Demographically, Britain has been acquiring an increasingly an Islamic face, in places such as Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, Waltham Forest and Tower Hamlets. In 2015, an analysis of the most common name in England showed it was

Mohammed, including spelling variations such as Muhammad and Mohammad.

Most important cities have huge Muslim populations: Manchester (15.8%), Birmingham (21.8%) and Bradford (24.7%). In Birmingham, the police just dismantled a terrorist cell; there is also a greater probability that a child will be born into a Muslim family than into a Christian one. In Bradford and Leicester, half the children are Muslim. Muslims do not need to become the majority in the UK; they just need gradually to Islamize the most important cities. The change is already taking place. “Londonistan” is not a Muslim majority nightmare; it is a cultural, demographic and religious hybrid in which Christianity declines and Islam advances.

According to Innes Bowen, writing in

The Spectator , only two of the 1,700 mosques in Britain today follow the modernist interpretation of Islam, compared with 56% in the United States. The Wahhabis control six percent of mosques in the UK, while the fundamentalist Deobandi control up to 45%. According to a survey from the Knowledge Center, a third of UK Muslims do not feel “part of British culture.”

SHARIA COURTS IN LONDON

London is also full of sharia courts. There are officially 100. The advent of this parallel judicial system has been made possible thanks to the British Arbitration Act and the system of Alternative Dispute Resolution. These new courts are based on the rejection of the inviolability of human rights: the values ​​of freedom and equality that are the basis of English Common Law.

British personalities keep opening the door to introduce sharia. One of Britain’s leading judges, Sir James Munby, said that Christianity no longer influences the courts and these must be multicultural — which means more Islamic. Rowan Williams , the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Chief Justice Lord Phillips also

suggested that British law should “incorporate” elements of sharia law. The British cultural establishment is rapidly capitulating to Islamic fundamentalists in accepting their demands.

British universities are also advancing Islamic law. The official guidelines of the university, “ External speakers in higher education institutions“, published by Universities UK, provide that “orthodox religious groups” may separate men and women during events. At Queen Mary University of London, women had to use a separate entrance and were forced to sit in a room without being able to ask questions or raise their hands — as in Riyadh or Tehran. The Islamic Society at the London School of Economics held a gala, in which women and men were separated by a seven-meter panel.

After the attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the head of MI6, Sir John Sawers, recommended self-censorship and “some restraint ” in discussing Islam. The British ambassador in Saudi Arabia, Simon Collis, converted to Islam and completed the pilgrimage to Mecca, the hajj. He now calls himself Haji Collis.

Chinese Authorities blow up Christian Mega church “golden lampstand church” with dynamite


From prosecuting Christians and throwing those who openly read the bible or preach on the streets inside jail and now blowing up Christian worship centers with dynamite, one would wonder, why does Chinese Government hate Christianity so much.

Reports suggests that Chinese authorities have demolished a well-known Christian megachurch, inflaming long-standing tensions between religious groups and the Communist Party. Witnesses and overseas activists said the paramilitary People’s Armed Police used dynamite and excavators to destroy the Golden Lampstand Church, which has a congregation of more than 50,000, in the city of Linfen in Shaanxi province.

ChinaAid, a US-based Christian advocacy group, said local authorities planted explosives in an underground worship hall to demolish the building following, constructed with nearly $2.6m (£1.9m) in contributions from local worshippers in one of China’s poorest regions.

The church had faced “repeated persecution” by the Chinese government, said ChinaAid. Hundreds of police and hired thugs smashed the building and seized Bibles in an earlier crackdown in 2009 that ended with the arrest of church leaders.

Those church leaders were given prison sentences of up to seven years for charges of illegally occupying farmland and disturbing traffic order, according to state media. There are an estimated 60 million Christians in China, many of whom worship in independent congregations like the Golden Lampstand. Millions of Christians, Buddhists and Muslims also worship in state-sanctioned assemblies.

But the surging popularity of non-state-approved churches has raised the ire of authorities, wary of any threats to the officially atheist Communist Party’s rigid political and social control.

I delivered TB Joshua’s message to Jonathan that saved Nigeria


image

An Abuja-based politician has made more
surprising revelations about the role allegedly
played by ‘Prophet’ T.B. Joshua in the historic
presidential elections held almost one year ago
in Nigeria that saw a peaceful transition of
power.
Speaking before a packed congregation at The
Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in
Lagos, Ambassador Raphael Horsfall explained
how Joshua revealed the outcome of the
elections to him several weeks prior to the
actual vote.

image

“He told me categorically that I should go
and tell Mr President that it is too late,
that nothing can be done, that we will
lose the election but God will prevail on
the peace of Nigeria,” said Horsfall, who
served as a Special Assistant to Prof
Rufai Alkali, the Political Advisor of
Nigeria’s Former President, Goodluck
Jonathan.
“That is why when we lost elections, I
was at peace,” Horsfall continued, adding
that his visit to The SCOAN came after a
meeting with Jonathan and his wife
Dame Patience where he suggested they
sought ‘spiritual guidance’ from Joshua
as the tense time of elections neared.
“Mr President was calm after hearing
that word from Prophet T.B. Joshua.
Everyone was telling him to annul the
election, which he had the power to do,
but nobody knew this is actually the
reason why His Excellency conceded
defeat to the opposition,” Horsfall, who
said he is currently a UN ambassador and
working with the presidency, continued.
The revelation from the outspoken politician
corroborates Joshua’s controversial statement
immediately after the election that he had
warned Jonathan of his impending loss.
According to a report published in several
newspapers, the cleric said ‘God’ spoke to him
with a message for Mr. Jonathan that whatever
the outcome of the election, his regime had
come to an end and his concession of defeat
would ‘save the lives of millions’.
When a presidential aide worshipped at his
church, Joshua said he met him and personally
relayed the revelation. “Soft landing – that is
the language I sent to the president,” he told
the congregation the Sunday following the
historic elections which saw Muhammadu
Buhari ascend to power.
Horsfall explained that his initial encounter with
the controversial Nigerian cleric came in 2009
when he was part of a delegation from the
Niger-Delta region who sought spiritual solution
at The SCOAN to the growing menace of
militancy.
“The guidance he gave to us, which we
communicated to the then President, His
Excellency Umaru Musa Yar-Adua, was
what led to the Amnesty Program which
Nigerians and the entire people of the
region are enjoying presently,” Horsfall
revealed.
He implored Nigeria’s current leadership to seek
‘spiritual guidance’ to address the growing
economic challenges engulfing the nation.
“This is not time for religious sentiment,
nor is it a time for ethnic sentiment,”
Horsfall passionately counselled.
“This is a time to build Nigeria. In
building a strong, united Nigeria – we
need God. God has blessed us with a
man that speaks to God and hears from
Him directly. Why is it that our economy
is crumbling and we are still folding our
hands? Let us come to inquire of the
Most High God what we should do.”
Horsfall was also quick to quash any
insinuations that money was exchanged with
Joshua by politicians during the election period.
“Someone who tells you that nothing can be
done – will he ask you to bring anything?”

journalist currently in Lagos, Nigeria.
