Shanghai Seizes More Than 20 Christians, Including American

April 12, 2019

SHANGHAI, CHINA, April 5, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ — Shanghai officials seized more than 20 Christians, including one American citizen, on account of their faith yesterday.

At around 7:00 a.m. CST yesterday morning, Shanghai’s public security department rounded up the Christians, who are all affiliated with the company I WILL and detained them for their beliefs and church activities. A pastor named Michael Yu, who holds both Taiwanese and American citizenship, was among those who were taken into custody.

Yu was later released, but when he attempted to board a flight to Los Angeles to attend a dinner party with former U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, airport security barred him from leaving China. Yu has been traveling back and forth from the U.S. to China in order to minister to Christian businesspeople for years but has never previously experienced problems, an indication of China’s worsening violations of religious freedom, according to ChinaAid President and Founder Bob Fu.

Because of Yu’s Taiwanese citizenship, Fu believes that China may try to treat him more harshly than they would someone from another nation, since China considers Taiwan a part of their jurisdiction. Fu is calling for fellow Christians to pray for him and the other detained Christian business leaders.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
