Pro-CCP North Point Alliance Church (北宣) Hong Kong Senior Pastor Rev. Gordon SIU Sau-wah (蕭壽華) (D.Min., Fuller Theological Seminary, California; Master of Divinity, Regent College, Canada) orders pastors and instructors of his church to remain “politically neutral” and not to use phrases like “5 demands” and “HK Add Oil”, while the Bible is at times politicized.
Comment: It is in itself a highly political act for a Christian in HK to assert that Jesus Christ is the “King of kings” (1 Timothy 6:15; Rev. 17:14), for Chairman Xi Jinping’s probably the most powerful anti-Christ atheist in the world. Exodus even records the INDEPENDENCE movement of the Jewish people from Egyptian rule. E.g.’s of other profoundly politicized biblical passages include “The Spirit of the Lord…has anointed me to proclaim Good News to the poor… to announce release to the PRISONERS of war…to send away free those whom TYANNY has crushed” (Luk 4:18); “What does the Lord require of you but to do JUSTICE, & to love kindness, & to walk humbly w/ your God?” (Micah 6:8 ESV);“Thus says the Lord: Do JUSTICE & RIGHTEOUSNESS, & deliver from the hand of the OPPRESSOR him who has been robbed.” (Jeremiah 22:3 ESV).
