The Chinese Communist’s crack down on Christianity is unrelenting nor slowing down any time soon. Just this month, last week, a Christian was arrested and charged for what officials termed ‘illegal evangelism’.
Chen Wensheng, who is part of the Xiaoqun Church in Hengyang, has always shared the gospel on the streets, often carried a wooden cross that read “Glory to our Savior” and “Repent and Be Saved by Faith” written on it.
According to persecution.org, a website dedicated to sharing with the world that attrocities suffereed by christians across the world, Chen’s run ins with the police were numerous and for the same offence of sharing the gospel.
He was taken to the police far too often, it reports, that the police were familiar with him and would even evangelize to the officers at the station.
With the crackdown against house churches in China, street evangelism has become increasingly difficult. People face harassment or detention; some would have their churches cracked down by the authorities.
