See why China banned the online sales of Bibles

RELIGION
Bibles can no longer be purchased online in China, despite the government publishing a new document claiming that it allows freedom of worship. It’s been reported that searches for the Bible on e-commerce sites JD.com and Amazon.cn don’t produce results. Although China had always controlled sales of the Bible by only allowing it to be distributed and printed by state-sanctioned churches, it had been available to buy online. The disappearance of Bibles on internet retailers is the latest restriction the country had placed on its fast-growing Christian population.   Religious freedom campaigners have said freedom for Christians in China has been the worst it’s ever been. The crackdown on Christians in China has meant that crosses have been removed from churches, churches have b

Rwanda Gov shuts down 714 churches over noise pollution, safety issues

RELIGION
Local government authorities in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, have suspended activities in 714 churches over noise pollution and failing to meet minimum safety operating standards. The New Times, a local newspaper, reports that the action is being carried out by respective urban district authorities in partnership with the Rwanda governance board. Justus Kangwagye, head of political parties and civil society department at the Rwanda governance board, said most of the affected places of worship were asked to halt operations until they meet the expected standards. “Worshiping should be done in an organised way and meet minimum standards,” he said. “Exercising your freedom of worship should not encroach on other people’s rights. They have been asked to halt operations until they meet

A christian can marry many wives, No Bible Verse Is Against Polygamy – Kenya Pastor

RELIGION
Rev Vincent Mulwa, a theologian and G.O of Christ Pilgrim Restoration Centre, Kenya, has come out to challenge the widely-held Christian doctrine that men should only marry one wife. In an interview with Kenya’s The Daily Nation, Rev. Mulwa said Africans bought the world views of European missionaries who brought Christianity into Africa and abandoned polygamy, a practice that was rife even among the people who lived during biblical times. Rev Mulwa said he wants Christian leaders to review teachings on monogamous marriages, claiming there is no verse in the Bible supporting it. He says this is necessary to “save a generation of women who are ageing in church without husbands”. Rev Mulwa added; “I have been in the ministry for 38 years, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ but

RELIGION
The United Kingdom branch of Christ Embassy, owned by popular Nigerian televangelist, Chris Oyakhilome, is broke and has been declared insolvent by the Charities Commission, reports say. The ministry also admitted in its belated 2015 financial Statement (the church’s last annual return, which it published in 2017) that its subsidiary, Christ Embassy Limited, valued with a net asset of more than N1 billion (£2 million) entered into liquidation from November 1, 2016. On its website, the Charity Commission flagged Christ Embassy as “charity insolvent”. According to the commission, a charity is considered as being insolvent when it is “unable to pay its debts.” “In practice there are two separate tests for insolvency and failure of either might be an indication of insolvency: The cha

No ethnic group can fight us face to face in Nigeria – Fulani Leader boast

RELIGION
Malam Ahmad Usman Bello, the national chairman of the Fulani Development Association of Nigeria has asserted the dominance of the Fulani ethnic group over all other ethnic groups in Nigeria. Speaking in an interview with Tribune newspaper, Bello said there was no ethnic group in Nigeria that could fight the Fulani’s face-to-face “Take it or not, Fulanis have remained unbeatable; no ethnic group can fight us face to face. Any ethnic group that fights us will learn a bitter lesson,” the leader of the apex Fulani association in the country said. Bello said, however, that it is in the interest of the Fulani for there to be peace in Nigeria. “It is in our own interest that the country lives in peace [and for the country] to be united.
