The American democratic process, while perhaps imperfect, ultimately gives the people the power to elect their leaders for limited terms, which allows for growth, fresh turnover and the ongoing exchange of ideas.
But in China, the process looks much different, and the American Pastors Network (APN) recently discussed China, the security threat and its position to control the world on a recent "Stand in the Gap Today" radio program, which is a ministry of APN.
On a program last week, titled "The China Security Threat: Positioning to Control the World," APN President and "Stand in the Gap Today" host Sam Rohrer explored how President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have been directly involved in China's politics, especially as the president has announced plans for new tariffs that could change the way the U.S. and China do business together.
"While the U.S. elects leaders for two, four or six years," Rohrer said on the show, "quietly but with enormously scary potential is China, whose parliament voted to give lifetime ruling power to Xi Jinping. May we submit: president for life, king for life or, even more likely, dictator for life? President Trump, in his comments surrounding the need to rebuild the U.S. military and his decision to impose stiff tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, has cited security and China's global ambitions as some of the biggest threats to America.
"Namely, China, the largest nation in the world, has just pushed itself from moving toward democratic rule to despotic one-man rule," Rohrer added. "The world should be horrified and shocked back into reality that freedom is not the default position in life and certainly not in atheistic and God-rejecting nations. It is this action, when combined with other major efforts to control the world, that should cause us all to sit up and pay attention to China's efforts to control the skies and seas in its quest to control the world."
