Some churches in China are being forced to hand over their tithes and offerings to government authorities as China continues cracking down on Christianity.

According to, the government in China’s province of Zheijiang has enacted a new law which forces churches to surrender all their tithes and offerings to authorities.

“The government officials will interfere with church affairs, managing our donations and some large-scale projects. We have to obtain their (the government’s) permission if we would like to buy equipment or decorate the church.
