"For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens."
The Chinese Government is OK with God, just as long as He takes a back seat to them.
"We have to remember first of all we are a citizen of this country," he says. "And we are a citizen of the Kingdom of God. That comes second.
Pastor Wu Weiqing -
from China Communist Party's approved Haidian Church
NO, pastor Wu, that always comes first, or your faith is in vain !
China's long dead idol
IN CHINA, THE STATE IS GOD
That is why they have been tearing down the cross from churches across China.
They hate competition and this raised up high symbol is a threat to the false god, the State.
...and as long as you bow to the State first, you are tolerated.
The Chinese Communist Party once tried to destroy religion.
Now they just work to corrupt it by giving God second place.
They make sure that the first of the ten commandments is broken, rendering the Christian faith of idol worshipers like Pastor Wu, and those who serve the state before God, worthless and dead.
“You shall have no other gods before Me.
“You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.
You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,
but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
*pagans and dangerously ignorant Christian's call Resurrection day, Easter, which is named after the pagan fertility god Ishatar.
When pagan Rome separated Christianity from it's Jewish roots, it brought in many pagan influences and idols such as the 'saints' and Mary which paganized Christianity worships before God, breaking the first commandment.
Messiah Yeshua has nothing to do with colored eggs and pagan fertility rites.
Those who partake of this toxic mix of pagan roots are serving lying idols in disobedience to God, plain and simple.
Separate the unclean from the Holy this Resurrection day.
