CHINA: Executed for Distributing Bibles
- CHINA: Executed for Distributing Bibles
Brought to you by The Voice of the MartyrsWhen 34-year old Jiang Zongxiu went to her neighboring market
last June in Guizhou Province, China. Along with her mother-in-law,
Jiang went through the marketplace, taking opportunities to
hand out Bibles and Christian literature and telling people
about Jesus. Only this day they had an encounter with the
Chinese police.The two Christian women were handcuffed together and brought
to the police station. They were interrogated throughout the
evening of the 17th. The next morning they were sentenced by
the Public Security Bureau (PSB) to 15 days incarceration for
"suspected spreading of rumor and disturbing the social order."The two Christian women were handcuffed together and brought to
the police station. They were interrogated throughout the evening
of the 17th. The next morning they were sentenced by the Public
Security Bureau (PSB) to 15 days incarceration for "suspected
spreading of rumor and disturbing the social order."Jiang and her mother-in-law knew the risk of spreading
Christian literature in communist China. Both had been
active in their church for more than 10 years and dared to
go forth. Even when they were arrested, interrogated and
sentenced to serve 15 days, they were willing to accept the
consequences of their actions—all from a government that
claims to have "freedom of religion."But it was not enough for the PSB to arrest and beat
these two Christian women for the crime of passing our
Christian literature. In the afternoon of June 18th, Mrs.
Jiang Zongziu was pronounced dead by the PSB office of
Tongzi County. They claimed she died of "natural causes."
The fact is she was beaten to death.The Voice of the Martyrs has received video testimony
from the surviving family, photos of Jiang body showing
her bruised body, and a copy of the actual arrest document.
All of this had to be smuggled out of China as the
authorities continue to attempt to hide their systematic
persecution of Christians. An international campaign is
now under way on behalf of the surviving family.Much of the world would like you to believe Christians are
no longer persecuted. Sister Jiang’s family would disagree.
