China's oil quest and human rights 
6th-May-2006 12:20 pm
There is a very interesting article posted on msnbc.com. China's disregard for human rights is going to make the world very difficult place to live. That is why disregard for human rights at any level is anti-world peace and anti-Christian. China's oil quest and her disregard for human rights will certainly affect what the world believes about our human rights. Therefore any church based on sound teaching of Jesus should never preach that Jesus didn't mind violating human rights to help others.

UBF teaches that human rights can be violated for the sake of helping others. (But in reality UBF does not help people spiritually. It only tries to convert people to its committed members by any means.) What would be the implication of this UBF teaching in this world that is already going through so many difficulties? Chian's oil quest and UBF's quest for making students in the world committed members are making this world unsafe place because they will not hesitate to violate human rights for the sake of their quests. Disregard for human rights at any level is not a small matter. It can affect at least gas price next time when you are at a gas station.

Please pray for Chinese leaders and UBF leaders to repent and use their power to protect human rights so that we can live peacefully in this world.

Another interesting article on the New York Tiems: China Installs Another Bishop, Angering Vatican
"...The Vatican has been trying for years to switch diplomatic recognition from Taiwan, with several hundred thousand Catholics, to mainland China, with an estimated 4 million to 12 million Catholics. Pope Benedict XVI has redoubled the Vatican's efforts, but the Holy See has had trouble persuading China to allow religious freedom and to give the Vatican a say in the selection of bishops..."

Hmmm... Looks like Chinese government would set up its own government-controlled religion rather than allowing religious freedom. I think that the new bishop will preach that leaving his church to go to other church such as the ones following Vatican is the work of Satan.

I think their main point is to control religion. The do not want to forbid Christianity completely, because then they would look bad in the international community and also to their own critics. So they install a state-controlled church. The former GDR did the same. And they had snitchers in every meeting of the church. They do not want house churches or independent churches, because they cannot be controlled and supervised so easily.

This time the Chinese government installed another bishop with the pope's approval. This is very interesting. The pope is really powerful.

Cartoons on high gas price. They will become reality if Chinese leaders and UBF leaders do not give up their human rights policy soon.
