As CBN News reported, Pastor Wang's home was raided and ransacked by police. The raid may have been triggered by a 7,300 words manifesto titled "Meditations on the Religious War," which Pastor Wang wrote and posted on social media.
In it, he condemns China's Communist Party and urges Christians to perform acts of civil disobedience.
Pastor Yi criticized the government for forcing its citizens to engage in "Caesar worship" by treating President Xi Jinping like a god.
He wrote that ideology "is morally incompatible with the Christian faith and all those who uphold freedom of the mind and thought."
"His home was ransacked. It was a mess," Zhang Guoqing told The South China Morning Reporter. "The police said our church is an illegal organization and we cannot attend any more gatherings from now on."
