"Imprisoned Pastor's Health Failing – VOM Sources
On September 24, The Voice of the Martyrs received reports that Pastor Zhang Rongliang's health was failing, and if he is not released, he would die in prison. According to contacts in China, "Pastor Zhang must be carried from place to place by two men supporting him. He does not walk well on his own. He openly questions whether he can finish this sentence. If he is not released, there is a good chance that he will die in prison." Pastor Zhang still has four years remaining of the seven-and-a-half year sentence he received after his arrest in 2004. He already had previously spent 12 years in prison for his faith during five separate detentions. He experienced harsh torture, including electric shock, during his previous prison terms."
I doubt that many Christians in the United States have any idea what it really means to suffer on account of our faith. We get bent out of shape because nativity scenes are banned on government property or some 2nd rate "celebrity" makes a profane comment on an awards show. We whine about the media bias against people of faith and then do everything in our power to confirm their worst suspicions.
