This is why I don’t believe the great persecution of the end times is yet to come.
Of the 60 Christians arrested, about 50 remain in custody, without any formal charges being filed, China Aid said.
“What has worried us most is that some Christians disappeared after the conflict,” China Aid said. “Some are young students that can not be found in either the detention or custody centers. According to reliable sources, some may have been beaten to death.”
The great persecution already is, and has been. The church has been under this same spirit of persecution since Nero. Just because it isn’t happening here, does not mean it is not happening.
