Summary

In Communist-ruled mainland China, the party-state carries out three types of religious persecution: atheist indoctrination through the education system and propaganda through mass media, political repression on religious organizations and leaders, and economic punishment and life obstruction to active believers. Christian response to persecution has three ways, cooperation, accommodation, and resistance. Each of these ways may be further differentiated as active and passive modes. In recent years, an increasing tendency is toward resistance and legally challenging the party-state’s violation of civil rights and human rights. Above all the strategies of response is relentless evangelism regardless the circumstances, so that the number of Christians in China has continued to rise rapidly in spite of persecution and restriction.
