In the last few days, protests have happened in China over COVID restrictions, among other things. It seems like things have settled with looser rules in the last few hours, but I greatly hope the protesters in China are the front end of a liberated spirit that will resist government overreach. If reports are accurate that children are taken from their parents to confine COVID, that is an assault against the most basic human instinct to care for one’s child.
In every culture, self-determination and family welfare cannot be repressed indefinitely because those qualities reflect the character of God. I pray for the Chinese people.
