China jailing Christians, pastor’s daughter, calling it an ‘evil cult to obstruct the law”

The Chinese have ramped up persecution against the Christian church over the last several days.

Zhang Shanshan, daughter of jailed Pastor Zhang Shaojie, who has been detained since Nov. 16, is now missing and presumed arrested according to a new report by China Aid.

Zhang Shaojie’s elderly mother said she believes that her granddaughter and the two Christians are under someone’s control. “We have gone to the police station and the Public Security Bureau to look for them. She went out in a vehicle with Tiantang and Ruimin,” the woman said. “Now, we can’t find either the people or the vehicle.”

Additionally they report that Christian believers, Jiang Mao, Feng Tiandong, Zhang Baolin and a 70-year-old gentleman, were part of a group from the Zhenzizhou Church in Zizhou County who visited their local Public Security Bureau and are now all in custody.

The government justified their arrests, issuing detention notices and charging the Christians with “organizing and using an evil cult to obstruct the law.”

China Aid details the arrests and even posted a copy of the detention order – read more HERE
