A Much More Respectable Word

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
An 85-year-old Christian leader in China is under house arrest. Officials prevented Alan Yuan from holding services on August 23 and imprisoned him in his Beijing home for baptizing 300 people earlier in the month. The pastor and his wife have defied directives from authorities to register or disband their house church. He has served for 21 years in prison for his faith, and has refused to join any state-sanctioned church. "The church is spiritual, invisible, and its head can only be Christ, not the (Communist) Party. Thus we will not register and compromise the lordship of Christ," he said.(Compass Direct News Service)

Yuan might not be a world leader like Clinton, but his word is a much more respectable word.
