Bitter Winter notes that under the new Regulations on Religious Affairs, the Chinese government’s “control over the religious faith of minors has reached its highest level since the Cultural Revolution.”
The Chinese government is creating “church-free zones” around schools, prompting some believers to fear authorities are attempting to “sever the roots so that the next generation loses its faith. “
Bitter Winter magazine, which reports on Christian persecution in China, said it recently obtained a copy of the document, titled “Implementation Plan on the Special Governance of Private Christian Gathering Sites” in the northern Shanxi Province.
Another document, issued by the Religious Affairs Bureau, states: “All private Christian gathering sites around universities and colleges, as well as on-campus activity sites, are to be shut down in accordance with the law. The school authorities will conduct criticism and (re-education) of students and teachers. “
Authorities are also requiring places of worship to submit the names of their youth members, leading some believers to question whether the government will use the information to affect their employment prospects.
One believer, who was not named, told the outlet that the Chinese Communist Party had been so strict in preventing minors believing in God that it wanted to cut the roots and make the next generation doubtful. “
Bitter Winter notes that under the new Regulations on Religious Affairs, the Chinese government’s “control over the religious faith of minors has reached its highest level since the Cultural Revolution. “
“The regulations prohibit religious facilities near schools and require parents to investigate students’ beliefs. They also prohibit minors from believing God. Sunday schools are closed. “
In December, more than 60 police officers and officials stormed a children’s Bible class at Rongguili Church in Guangzhou and confiscated church property, including 4,000 books.
In February, a priest in Hebei province who asked to remain anonymous told ucanews.com that authorities had asked clergymen in some parts of the province to post signs prohibiting minors from entering religious venues, prayer houses and other church premises.
“When minors enter internet bars, the government and police turn a blind eye. They are now very strict about preventing minors from entering religious places. “It is absurd,” said a local Christian to the outlet.
Despite such persecution, the Gospel continues to spread at an unprecedented rate, as an increasing number of parents are “begging” teachers to teach their children about Jesus.
Speaking to CBN News, Sean Elgut, the headmaster of Veritas Christian Academy of Virginia, revealed that Christian schools are on the rise in China. Many Chinese are either atheists or Buddhists, but most parents are open-minded to Christianity and encourage their children to learn as much as they can about Christ.
“Chinese parents start to realize Christian education is beyond textbooks. Parents want their children to have faith. Elgut stated that the parents are asking us to teach their children about Jesus.
Teachers spend quality time with students to teach Christian values and lead them to Christ. We want to spend more quality time with them, much like Jesus did with His disciples. He was generous with his time and taught them,” he stated.
