On one afternoon in a small village near the border between China and Myanmar, Sister Ju, a devout Christian in her mid 30s, was forcefully taken away by police when she was peacefully sharing the gospel with local Chinese in a 200-square-foot home. After being detained for more than 400 days, she was sentenced to 13 years in prison. Ju’s experience is not unique. There are many Chinese Christians facing severe persecution merely because they believe in Jesus.

The International Religious Freedom Report produced by the U.S. State Department has designated China as one of the “Countries of Particular Concern” (CPC) since 1999, when the annual report was first issued.  For years, the ACLJ has been utilizing our international resources to fight to protect the persecuted Christians in China.

Recently, through our international affiliate with consultative status at the U.N., the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), we submitted to the U.N. Human Rights Council a Universal Periodic Review (UPR) regarding the intensified persecution Chinese Christians have been facing since President Xi took power.

As we’ve previously explained, the UPR is one of the ways that the ACLJ combats religious persecution in foreign nations through an accountability mechanism created by the U.N. Human Rights Council.

In our UPR report on China, we explained that in 2017 alone, our contacts in China received and collected information on roughly 600 incidents of persecution targeting Christians. A majority of the incidents occurred in the Henan Province, Yunnan Province, and Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

I think you have to go back to Nero, to see the persecution of Christians.  It's abhorrent! 

God Bless Him!

Family of Pakistani Christian Mother Sentenced to Death for Blasphemy Prays for Deliverance

 

(AFP) — The family of Asia Bibi, a Christian mother who faces execution for blasphemy in Pakistan, said they hoped the Supreme Court would free her.

 

But in any case they feared for their future living in Pakistan under the blasphemy laws, they told AFP.

 

Bibi, who has been on death row since 2010, is at the centre of the high-profile case that has divided Pakistan and drawn prayers from the Vatican.

 

On Monday the Supreme Court heard her last appeal and said it had reached a judgement, which it has yet to reveal.

 

“We are hopeful that whatever the court proceedings are it will come out as positive for us,” her husband Ashiq Mesih told AFP.
