Bible app deleted as Apple bends the knee to the Chinese Communist Party

The Daily Caller reports that Olive Tree, producer of a popular Bible app, has voluntarily removed its app from Apple’s Chinese app store, after it was told that it needed a permit from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for the app to be available on Apple’s website.

Why did Communist China start doubling its order for COVID tests in May 2019?

The Daily Mail reports that Internet 2.0 (a group of US and Australian researchers) found evidence, that the Chinese province of Hubei (where Wuhan is located), the Wuhan Institute of Virology and Wuhan University of Science and Technology, were ordering an unusual number of PCR tests and machines used to test for COVID and other diseases back in May 2019.

Chinese Communist Party offers a reward to snitch on Christians

According to a report by the China Christian Daily, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in Heilongjiang Province, located in North Eastern China, is offering a reward of US$150 for anyone reporting illegal religious activity. As part of this, the government has set up a snitch line where people can report such activity through email or by phone. The Christian Post reports that under the program entitled, “The Reward System For Reporting Illegal Religious Activities Offences,” the government is asking citizens to report anyone who is preaching, distributing religious tracts and other religious literature (both printed and digital), holding house meetings outside the government-approved Three Self Patriot Movement (TSPM). The TSPM is a religious organization set up by the communist regime that allows it to monitor sermons, control messaging and even appoint communist-approved pastors to the churches. All Christian churches are required to join. The CCP justifies the reward stating it is trying to stop the spread of COVID, which ironically was the same excuse it used to crush the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. Though …

Is Communist China’s new digital currency a sign of the times?

According to a former executive director with the World Bank, Erik Bethel, Communist China is on the verge of creating a digital version of its currency (official called renminbi but popularly referred to as the yuan) that could result in the regime going cashless in the near future. It will be the world’s first government-backed digital currency. In an interview with CBN, Bethel states the regime’s digital currency, similar to the Bitcoin, will be controlled by the country’s national bank, the People’s Bank of China. As part of its testing phase, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will soon release $6 million dollars to its citizens that can use one of two apps approved by the CCP to make purchases. It is believed that the communist regime is preparing for a full launch of its digital coin in time for the 2022 Winter Olympics. Once this process starts, the CCP will have full access to people’s spending 24/7. Many believe the move is just another step in the Communist regime’s attempt to regulate and moderate the …

Chinese pastor arrested for collecting church offerings?

ChinaAid recently reported on the arrest of Elder Zhang Chunlei by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in May 2021. Elder Zhang pastors the Guiyang Ren Ai Reformed Church. The CCP has been cracking down on Christians throughout the regime, but what was unusual about Chunlei’s arrest is that he has been charged with “suspected fraud” for collecting offerings during church services, a tradition used by churches around the world.

‘The Red dragon ain’t no evil’: I am not sure the Apostle John agrees

According to Hong Kong’s Apple Daily, in the lead up to the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on July 1, 2021, it is flooding the few churches allowed to be open with Communist propaganda and ordering them to celebrate the CCP during services. The CCP has set up two organizations that churches must join in order to be approved. This includes Three-Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM) for protestants and the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association for Roman Catholic churches. These churches are heavily regulated and monitored by the CCP that has set up video cameras in the churches to identify who is attending and what is being spoken during the services. According to the Apple Daily (AD) several Catholic churches are actually holding masses singing the praises of communism. AD added that in May, Liu Yuanlong, the vice president of the Catholic association, released a public statement endorsing the CCP: “God has chosen the Chinese Communist Party… We have to firmly support the Chinese Communist Party with Xi Jinping at its core. We listen to …

Trudeau: A propaganda tool for the Chinese Communist Party?

A few days ago, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called anyone critical of his admiration of the Chinese Communist Party as racist. This racism accusation was Trudeau’s response to a very legitimate question in the House of Commons on why his government allowed scientists working for China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) full access to a level 4 virology lab in Winnipeg.

What Jesus said about the Chinese Communist Party’s sanction of Rev. Johnnie Moore

I was reading an interesting story about Rev. Johnnie Moore’s response to the decision by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to sanction him. The move effectively bans Moore and his family from entering Communist China, Hong Kong and Macao, a former Portuguese controlled city on the coast of China. Rev. Moore is an evangelical Christian and president of The Congress of Christian Leaders. Up to a few weeks ago, Moore also served on U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF). He was sanctioned after USCIRF released its 2021 annual report where it condemned the Communist regime’s treatment of religious groups and sanctioned a CCP official for his violation of religious rights in the communist regime. In the report, it particularly warned of the CCP’s aggressive use of advanced surveillance technologies to control and subjugate religious minorities and as well all Chinese citizens. The announcement of CCP’s reciprocal sanction of Moore was made by The Global Times, a propaganda news outlet for the CCP. So how did Moore respond? Here is what he tweeted: He called …

Chinese Communist Party launches snitch app for wrong think

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) just released an app allowing people to report those who are not thinking according to communist lines. The app produced by Cyberspace Administration of China is initially focussing on people who dare to insult China’s national heroes. According to The Independent, it was released in the lead up to CCP’s 100th anniversary to deal with people “denying the excellence of advanced socialist culture.” The CCP explained the app’s purpose writing: For a while now, some people with ulterior motives have spread historically nihilistic false statements online, maliciously distorting, slandering, and denying party, national, and military history in an attempt to confuse people’s thinking. We hope that most internet users will play an active role in supervising society and enthusiastically report harmful information.” This would include reporting anyone who refers to Mao Zedong, the founder of Chinese communism, as one of the world’s biggest mass murderers. It is estimated that Mao’s communist policies, directly or indirectly, resulted in the deaths of 45 million Chinese people (many now believe the number is …
