May God Bless
The Christians
Of China

George Bush, as President of the United States, is on a diplomatic mission to China. As such, he can't go into their country and visit a real underground Christian church and shake hands with the real evangelists of China. But, he has done what he can do. And, he has made his message very, very clear:

BEIJING, China (CNN) -- President Bush attended a legally sanctioned church Sunday in Beijing before scheduled talks on religious freedom with President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao.

Bush also planned to discuss trade, intellectual property rights and support for the U.S. push to spread democracy in nations such as Iraq.

During his visit to the Gangwashi Church -- one of five Protestant churches sanctioned by the government -- Bush signed a guest book with the words: "May God bless the Christians of China."

That is the leader of the free world telling the persecuted Christian Church of China, "We are with you."

In China, people are arrested and tortured for distributing Bibles, for evangelizing, and for holding prayer services in their homes.

Democracy grew out of Protestant Christianity, where everyone has direct access to the ear of God, through prayer, therefore, everyone has a rightful voice in governing the affairs of men. So, even if you don't believe in Jesus Christ, you have a vested interest in promoting evangelism in the Communist state of China.

The Gospel will destroy Communism in China, just as surely as it did in Poland, and much of Eastern Europe.
