Christians in China are now facing “true persecution” for their faith in Jesus Christ as reports are indicating that many Chinese Christians and the lawyers that represent them are being detained by the country’s national government, with little or no word on their status.  “People [have] disappeared,” Andrew Boyd of Release International told Premier UK, a Christian publication.

Excerpt from CBN News:
“They are taken away, put in black detention centers or unregistered places,” he said. “Nobody can get to them, they’re families can’t, they can’t get legal support. They’re put under continual pressure and in some cases, including Christian lawyers, they are tortured. One Christian activist has been jailed for more than seven years for what the government calls crimes against the state.
