Thideology News of the day reports that approximately 3,000 people place their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and are saved everyday in China. This is happening despite fierce government persecution on the Church. Read the story entitled, “3,000 Christians added daily in China,” and see how God is not only calling out His own but how He is gifting them with the faith necessary to deal with their circumstances. Remember to pray for our Chinese brothers and sisters.

Meanwhile the United States congress is looking to pass legislation to criminalize its critics. Worldnetdaily’s article, “Congress preparing to criminalize critics,” reports that churches and Christian organizations could be impacted at one of the grossest attempts ever to violate the first amendment. This legislation actually provides for prison sentences for people who dare exercise their freedom of speech. Unless the lovers of liberty stand up and hold congress accountable for their illegal actions the Church in America could well find itself in the same boat as the Church in China.

May God be glorified either way.
