A close friend of mine who is a missionary in Asia (including China) sent me these photos and this report of a recent persecution of Christians there. This is a first hand account, but I have withheld his name for his own security. I also edited and didn't publish one of the photos because they were too graphic for me. The truth is hard to swallow, but this is what God sees every day.
This is not meant to be a political statement. I post this as a report from one of my missionary friends:
"Hey everyone what you are about to see is very graphic but it will let you know what the Chinese government really does to the people who call themselves Christians. The people that die are true Christians and Americans really need to know what the Christians are going through in all the other parts of the World. If this happened to the Christians here in America I bet more than half would fall away from Christ so they wouldn't have to die for their faith. You need to take a good look at the pictures of this poor woman that that was martyred for her faith in Christ and really pray to God of these Christians that are dieing left and right for their faith. You need to also look where you are at with Christ because in the next 15 years this could be you who are getting shot in the head by a high powered rifle and getting your head blown into pieces just because you have a relationship with our awesome God. God Bless,"
