More Persecution Of Christians In China: Is This Another 'Cultural Revolution'?

Communism Strikes Again: China Bans Christians From ALL Church Activities, Places Believers on House Arrest

In a rather totalitarian move, China has banned Christians from all Church activities in the Central Henan Province and other parts of the country, signaling an uptick in Christian persecution in the country. -Tweet this?
The Henan province is home to roughly ninety-five million people, according to a survey in 2012 approximately six percent of them identify as Protestant which amounts to roughly five million Christians.
Chinese authorities recently issued a decree banning all forms of Christian gatherings and began placing believers under house arrest for partaking in Church activities.
According to ChinaAid, a non-governmental Christian nonprofit that focuses on Human Rights Abuses, Chinese authorities have also issued the removal of couplet door decorations that use Christian language.
In addition, according to Nurudeen Lawal of, while citing an anonymous source, Christians in the province have been placed on house arrest without being charged, and in order for believers to depart their residence, they must detail to Chinese authorities as to where they are going and what they are planning to do.

The original Cultural Revolution, formally the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, was a socio-political movement in China from 1966 until 1976, which took place under Mao Zedong and resulted in, on record, at minimum one hundred million dead.
According to another Chinese Christian, identified as Wan*g in the report, Churches in the cities of Zhumadian and Zhoukou, as well as Gushi County, received a notice stating that all religious activities in the area are canceled until further notice. In addition, the notice reads that any individual found to be partaking in Christian activities will be ‘punished.’
In Tanghe County, citizens found to be involved in Christian activities, such as; Church meetings, house churches, etc., would be fined 30,000 yuan (the US $4,700).
Recently, in another part of the Communist Nation, specifically in Jiangxi province’s Yugan county, villagers are being made to remove the 624 posters showing Christian religious sayings and images from their respective homes, in order to replace them with 453 images of Xi Jinping.

Under the original Cultural Revolution in China, Mao Zedong forced Christians to remove all forms of Religious Imagery from the home and replace them with images of the Communist Party’s Leader at that time which was Mao Zedong.
The alarming signs of yet another cultural revolution are afoot within the borders of the communist nation, under the original, Christians within the country suffered greatly, many were persecuted for their faith.
Academics and Chinese citizens alike are both concluding that another Cultural Revolution is beginning in China, one that uses technology to harass, detain, monitor, rank and control the activities of each citizen.
Over the course of the last several years, according to Joshua Eisenman a professor at the University of Texas LBJ School in Austin, China is rampantly turning to National Socialism, and away from democracy. Eisenman, in an interview with the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, stated;

Granted the details of the persecution faced by Chinese Christians from first hand accounts, the report by Joshua Eisenman, and many other accounts of what is currently taking place in China it can be derived that another Cultural Revolution is gradually getting underway in China and that Christians within the Communist Nation are suffering the greatest of all. Pray for the persecuted.
