After lunch, XTH accompanied me to the Temple of Heaven (天坛). I have been fascinated by this since I heard about it, and very excited to actually be there. What a history! I don’t know if I am putting too much of positive slant on it, but it certainly seems to me that the Chinese knew there was a God over everything – 上帝 (Shàng dì) – but somehow this got distorted to worshipping creation instead (heaven, fire, earth, water, etc); cf. Romans 1:23. Keep praying that the Chinese nation would rediscover the knowledge of the true Great High God, as so many Chinese people already have.

Thank you for sharing your info. I truly appreciate
your efforts and I am waiting for your further write ups thanks once again.
This excellent article appeared in my Facebook feed on 8th Feb 2018:
Although this was written in 2010, I hadn’t seen it before.
It’s great to have one’s own thoughts confirmed by an independent third party.
