Authorities in China’s Shanxi Province city of Linfen demolished this week a well-known Christian church that once served as the worship center for more than 50,000 congregants.
The video shows cranes and bulldozers cleaning the rubble of the building.
“The Golden Lampstand Church is the second church to be demolished in a month,” the same source said.
According to CBN news, “Several of the church’s leaders, including the pastors and their relatives, were arrested. They were charged with illegally occupying farmland and disturbing traffic order by gathering together.”
