"It was originally planned to conduct a questionnaire concerning how Chinese house churches have been persecuted by the [Chinese] political power among house church members attending a training. It was planned to collect about 100 questionnaires (some trainees may have come from the same church, and the questionnaire is about churches). Nevertheless, about 90% of the people signed up for the training didn’t make it due to the Chinese government’s interference. ..." Pastor Liu Tongsu
(Beijing—Nov. 12, 2018) Pastor Liu Tongsu, the North American scholar of political and religious issues, conducted a questionnaire regarding the current situation of house churches in the late October. However, participants involved in the questionnaire couldn’t complete the questionnaire due to the Chinese government’s interference. The limited data should not affect the analysis of results. That is, it is trending that Chinese government intervenes house churches and what stance house churches hold in this respect.
ChinaAid is authorized to share the results publicly.
